Today we’ve got:
August: Osage County – We’re coming to the end of DVD releases of Oscar nominated films. This one was nominated in 2 categories: best performance by an actress and supporting actress. Synopsis: A look at the lives of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose paths have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Oklahoma house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them.
Barbie: The Pearl Princess – Barbie as a mermaid. Children’s animated film.
Grudge Match – A pair of aging boxing rivals are coaxed out of retirement to fight one final bout — 30 years after their last match. This film also features Rich Little as a boxing announcer. Mr. Little is 75 years old. Who knew he was still working?
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – the 2nd in the Peter Jackson’s trilogy. Starring Martin Freeman and Ian McKellan. It is a hoot to read the message boards and comments about this film. Seems there is a number of people who were rooting for the dragon. Considering the title of the film, doesn’t seem like a good bet.
Justin Bieber: Believe – A backstage and on-stage look at Justin Bieber during his rise to super stardom. You’ll find this in our DVD Biography section.
Paranormal Activitiy: The Marked Ones – Jesse begins experiencing a number of disturbing and unexplainable things after the death of his neighbor. As he investigates, it isn’t long before Jessie finds he’s been marked for possession by a malevolent demonic entity, and it’s only a matter of time before he is completely under its control. Here’s some trivia for you: Due to the longer production, filming didn’t wrap until late July 2013 resulting in the original release date of October 25, 2013 being pushed to January 3, 2014. Making it the only Paranormal Activity film to not be released in the month of October.
