now available on dvd: bad words


It’s summer and a great time to catch up on movies in addition to tv. And apparently one international round trip can get me almost all caught up. So it’s time for a little reminder as to what’s recently become available, are people still getting dvds?

  • 3 Days to Kill (5/20) – This movie had too much going to really be great but a palatable action flick for when there really is nothing on.
  • 12 Years a Slave (3/4) – Quality film that may not be fun but the performances are worth a watch.
  • American Hustle (3/18) – A fave of last year, love the fashions, the characters, and the hustle.
  • Anchorman 2 (4/1) – I’m not a huge fan of these but for a plane ride it passed the time.
  • Bad Words (7/8) – This Jason Bateman off color small comedy was the one plane flick that was far better than plane fare, and made me laugh out loud (not always a good idea on an overnight flight).
  • Divergent (8/5) – Another one of these teen things, I didn’t find the story particularly compelling, or sensical, but good enough for a plane.
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel (6/17) – If you like Wes Anderson then this was a great addition to his collection, if you don’t I might pass.
  • Her (5/13) – Another fave of last year this odd take on futuristic romance hit some great notes.
  • Homefront (3/11) – I feel compelled for some reason to watch every Jason Statham flick and even at their worst I kind of like them, this wasn’t the worst, but it wasn’t the best.
  • Inside Llewyn Davis (3/11) – Bummer of a guy and although the movie had some good attributes I didn’t love it.
  • Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (6/10) – Another plane flick, passable enough plane action.
  • Need for Speed (8/5) – This felt like what it probably was an attempt to capture some of the Fast & Furious fun, and although stupid a decent enough plane flick.
  • Out of the Furnace (3/11) – I love Christian Bale and though this was another bummer of a flick I thought it was worth a watch.
  • Robocop (6/3) – Should I just repeat, good enough for a plane.
  • The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (3/15) – The last of my plane listings, a sweet and entertaining enough quest.
  • Vampire Academy (5/20) – I can’t say this was a good movie but it was a fun campy flick that I enjoyed.
  • Veronica Mars (5/6) – I loved me some Veronica and although I’m not sure this was 100% successful as a standalone movie, and it’s tough to do justice to all the characters of a series, it was good visit back to Neptune.
  • The Wolf of Wall Street (3/25) – This movie was fun for about the first half and then it just kept going.

Though one international trip got me caught up on some of the backlog¬†the one that I missed, that I’ve been told is more than just schmaltzy is Philomena (4/15).
