TV DVD Releases
Note: Because of company deals, DVD release dates often don't line up with Redbox release dates.
New at Redbox this week: "No Escape, " "Ricki and the Flash, " "Shaun the Sheep, " "American Ultra, " "Vacation, " "Max" and "Santa's Little Helper."
“No Escape” (Rated R for strong violence, including a sexual assault, and language, 103 minutes): Fans may know Owen Wilson from his comedic work in films such as “Wedding Crashers” and “Zoolander, ” but he’s done action before with “Behind Enemy Lines.” Wilson returns to that genre with this tale of a man who must guide his family to safety in a foreign nation in the midst of a military coup. The film also stars Lake Bell and Pierce Brosnan.
Verdict: Rent it, the action is worth it.
“Ricki and the Flash” (Rated PG-13 for thematic material, brief drug content, sexuality and language, 101 minutes): For those who think Meryl Streep can do no wrong, I present to you this film. She’s a rocker who left her family behind to chase fame and fortune. After a family tragedy, she must return and make things right with music. With Oscar-winning talent like Streep, director Jonathan Demme and screenwriter Diablo Cody, one would expect something a little better than this.
“Shaun the Sheep” (Rated PG for rude humor, 85 minutes): Aardman Animations knows how to make claymation work. Look at films such as “Chicken Run, ” “Flushed Away” and “Wallace and Gromit.” The film follows Shaun the Sheep in an adventure to the big city to help the farmer. High jinks, of course, are bound to happen.
Verdict: Rent it for the children, enjoy it for yourself.
“American Ultra” (Rated R for strong bloody violence, language throughout, drug use and some sexual content, 96 minutes): How do movies like this get made? Jesse Eisenberg plays a stoner who is actually a top secret agent. And Kristen Stewart plays his stoner girlfriend who is also some sort of secret agent. It’s hard to remember all of the details through the haze of a bad movie.
Verdict: Hard pass.
