April 30th 2019
The last Bluray Tuesday of April arrives. This week starts off with The Brain released from Scream Factory for the first time on Bluray. I actually liked this film and look forward to re watching it on Bluray. Drama thriller Serenity is next up to hit shelves this week starring Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey. I missed this one in theaters and wanna check it out, I've heard mixed reviews. Action thriller Miss Bala is next up this week. Miss Bala I haven't heard much about but may be interesting. This is actually a remake of the 2011 film of the same name. Rounding out the week is a 4K restoration of Hannibal, Grandmother's House, Darkroom & The Corruption of Chris Miller from Vinegar Syndrome and Death Warmed Up from Severin. What will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
