Seven Psychopaths

Marty (Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay, “Seven Psychopaths”. Billy (Rockwell) is Marty’s best friend, an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, who wants to help Marty by any means necessary. All he needs is a little focus and inspiration. Hans (Walken) is Billy’s partner in crime. A religious man with a violent past. Charlie (Harrelson) is the psychopathetic gangster whose beloved dog, Billy and Hans have just stolen. Charlie’s unpredictable, extremely violent and wouldn’t think twice about killing anyone or anything associated with the theft. Marty is going to get all the focus and inspiration he needs, just as long as he lives to tell the tale. — (C) Official Site

Steve’s Take

As Scotty would say, anything with Mr. Walken is worth seeing. The man backs down from nobody – not even a man with a gun. I think this one is a pretty safe bet even if you are going in blind.

Paranormal Activity 4

The fourth installment in the popular horror franchise.

Steve’s Take

Do you see the description that is used to describe Paranormal Activity 4? It’s really enough already. They are all the same and they are made popular because you all spend your hard-earned money to see them! One must-have for a Paranormal movie seems to be someone being dragged across the floor. Spare me. Don’t do it to yourself!

Hotel Transylvania

Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s (Adam Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them. On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of the world’s most famous monsters–Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more–to celebrate his daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem–but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis. — (C) Sony

Steve’s Take

Seems as though Adam Sandler can’t even get animation right these days. The big gripe for Hotel Transylvania was that it might be OK enough to please a child, but it doesn’t have a story to hold the attention of an adult. That is what is great about it coming out on Blu-ray!  You put it on for your kid and you take care of whatever you need to take care of! Easy as pie!

The Awakening

Set in London in 1921, Florence Cathcart (Rebecca Hall), author of the popular book “Seeing Through Ghosts,” has devoted her career to exposing claims of the supernatural as nothing but hoaxes. Haunted by the recent death of her fiancé, she is approached by Robert Mallory (Dominic West) to investigate the recent death of a student at the all-boys boarding school where he teaches. When students at the school report sightings of the young boy’s ghost, she decides to take on the case. Initially, the mystery surrounding the ghost appears nothing more than a schoolboy prank, but as Florence continues to investigate events at the school, she begins to believe that her reliance on science may not be enough to explain the strange phenomenon going on around her. — (C) Cohen Media Group

Steve’s Take

January and February produced a multitude of horror movies on Blu-ray because they all came out right around Halloween. If you want to get your significant other to snuggle up with you this week, this one will be a good bet. Make sure all the lights are turned down and the volume is turned up. Boo! Tomatoes.

Next Week

That’ll do it for this week! Scott will be back next week to lead this bad boy when Flight and Alex Cross come to Blu-ray! Talk to you then! Enjoy your week!
