May 7th 2019
This week creeped up on us once more! It's a light start to the month but a few interesting titles to add to our collections. First up is 2019 horror / thriller, The Prodigy. I really enjoyed this one in the theater and look forward to adding to my collection. Time sure does fly, it's been 25 years since Forrest Gump hit theaters and is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a new 4k Bluray. Best buy will carry an exclusive steelbook release. Next up hitting shelves is The Lego Movie 2. I missed this in theaters and can't wait to check it out. I really liked the first one so I have high hopes for this one. Best Buy will carry an exclusive steelbook for this and Target's exclusive includes bonus content and two lego figures. Rounding out the week is comedy What Men Want, The Nightcomers and 4k release of Hellboy 2. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!

But when you need the job done right, it's time to call in Hellboy. Along with his expanding team in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Development — pyrokinetic girlfriend Liz, aquatic empath Abe and protoplasmic mystic Johann — the BPRD will travel between the surface strata and the unseen magical one, where creatures of fantasy become corporeal. And Hellboy, a creature of two worlds who's accepted by neither, must choose between the life he knows and an unknown destiny that beckons him.
