October 16th 2018
New week and new blurays to add to our growing collections. First up this week, from Marvel and Disney, is Ant Man & The Wasp, the sequel to 2015's Ant Man. Best Buy will carry an exclusive steelbook packaging and Target an exclusive digibook packaging. I thought this was a pretty good sequel. It's fun and light-hearted and I feel that's what was needed after the depressing Avengers: Infinity War. Next up this week is another sequel, Unfriended: Dark Web. If you missed our review of this check it out here. Well Go USA releases action thriller Buy Bust this week, and it's one I'm looking forward to checking out soon. Down a Dark Hall and Cold Skin are other horror thrillers that are hitting shelves today that both have interesting premises. For the first time on Bluray this week is Kazaam starring Shaq. Kazaam is one I enjoyed as a kid but realized as an adult that it's not the best film. Rounding out the week is 12 Monkeys from Arrow Video, Ash Vs Evil Dead complete series, and the original 50's version of Invasion of The Body Snatchers. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
