Click on the Bluray art to make your purchase…come on! Don’t be cheap!


From the makers of the hit Ice Age series comes Rio, a comedy adventure about taking a walk on the wild side. Blu is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, living a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. Blu and Linda think he’s the last of his kind, but when they learn about another Macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel, Blu’s female counterpart. Not long after they arrive, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers. With the help of street smart Jewel, and a group of wise-cracking and smooth-talking city birds, Blu escapes. Now, with his new friends by his side, Blu will have to find the courage to learn to fly, thwart the kidnappers who are hot on their trail, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had. — (C) Fox

Scott’s Take

Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand.  Sorry.  Every time I see anything about this movie, I have the sudden urge to sing and dance.  Okay, I feel better now that I got that out of the way.  give me a stripper pole and some dollar bills and i will show you more.  Um…too much. I haven’t seen Rio but I do know it’s about a Blue bird named Blu.  I have already pre ordered Rio via Amazon, so I will be checking this out on Tuesday.  that wasn’t a cheap plug, I just want you all to know about what goes on behind the scenes.  If you have seen Rio and would like to sing or chime in, let us know.

Soul Surfer

Bethany (AnnaSophia Robb) was born to surf. A natural talent who took to the waves at a young age, she was leading an idyllic life on Kauai, participating in national surf competitions with her best friend Alana (Lorraine Nicholson), when everything changed. On Halloween morning, a 14-foot tiger shark came out of nowhere and seemed to shatter all her dreams. Soul Surfer reveals Bethany’s fight to recover from her ordeal and how she grappled with the question of her future. Strengthened by the love of her parents, Tom (Dennis Quaid) and Cheri (Helen Hunt), and supported by her youth group leader Sara (Carrie Underwood), Bethany refuses to give in or give up, and begins a bold return to the water. — (C) Official Site

Scott’s Take

Here is the story of a girl who won’t be stripping anytime soon.  Okay that was wrong.  I wanted to see this in the theater but my wife is deathly afraid of sharks.  Seeing that I am a beach goer and avid cruiser, it wouldn’t help the cause going to see this with her.  You all know my rule about seeing movies alone, so I will check this out when I receive the Blu-Ray from…wait for it..yup you guessed it..Amazon.  I am a sucker for product placement.

Steve’s Take

There is not much about this movie that would make me want to see it. I especially do not like the cast – I’ve never been big on Helen Hunt. I will wait for Scotty to tell me how it was.

Next week

We have the alien comedy Paul, the pot smoker comedy Your Highness, and the mother of all mother movies Mars Needs Moms.  I hope you all have a great week.
