Blu Tuesday DVD and Bluray Release Report December 14th 2010

Oh this week the retail shelves are looking to tempt me even more and my wife is already cursing me for buying things in this Christmas season. Some really worthy titles are coming out today, and I fear I am a weak willed soul.

Nanny McPhee Returns

Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson) appears at the door of a harried young mother, Mrs. Isabel Green (Maggie Gyllenhaal), who is trying to run the family farm while her husband is away at war. But once she’s arrived, Nanny McPhee discovers that Mrs. Green’s children are fighting a war of their own against two spoiled city cousins who have just moved in and refuse to leave.
Relying on everything from a flying motorcycle and a statue that comes to life to a tree-climbing piglet and a baby elephant who turns up in the oddest places, Nanny McPhee uses her magic to teach her mischievous charges five new lessons.

I never got around to seeing this and meant to. The first one surprised the crap out of me with its charm and whimsy, but this trailer for this one made it seem sillier and less charming. Still something I would give a chance to rent this at least.

Cyrus

Still single seven years after the breakup of his marriage, John (John C. Reilly) has all but given up on romance. But at the urging of his ex-wife and best friend Jamie (Catherine Keener), John grudgingly agrees to join her and her fiancé Tim (Matt Walsh) at a party. To his and everyone else’s surprise, he actually manages to meet someone: the gorgeous and spirited Molly (Marisa Tomei).
Their chemistry is immediate. The relationship takes off quickly but Molly is oddly reluctant to take the relationship beyond John’s house. Perplexed, he follows her home and discovers the other man in Molly’s life: her son, Cyrus (Jonah Hill). A 21-year-old new age musician, Cyrus is his mom’s best friend and shares an unconventional relationship with her. Cyrus will go to any lengths to protect Molly and is definitely not ready to share her with anyone, especially John. Before long, the two are locked in a battle of wits for the woman they both love—and it appears only one man can be left standing when it’s over.

Jonah Hill alone was enough to keep me at arms length with this film, but I love everyone else involved, so I will at least rent it.

The A-TeamCheck out our Review

THE A-TEAM follows the daring exploits of a colorful team of former Special Forces soldiers who were set up for a crime they did not commit. Going “rogue,” they utilize their unique talents to try and clear their names and find the true culprit. Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, mixed martial arts champ Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Sharlto Copley are “The A-Team.”

This was an alright action flick with heaps of nostalgia in it, and I liked it despite just despising what they did with Mr T. This will get bought too.

The Other GuysCheck out our Review

NYPD Detectives Christopher Danson and P.K. Highsmith (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson) are the baddest and most beloved cops in New York City. They don’t get tattoos—other men get tattoos of them. Two desks over and one back, sit Detectives Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg). You’ve seen them in the background of photos of Danson and Highsmith, out of focus and eyes closed. They’re not heroes—they’re “the Other Guys.”
But every cop has his or her day and soon Gamble and Hoitz stumble into a seemingly innocuous case no other detective wants to touch that could turn into New York City’s biggest crime. It’s the opportunity of their lives, but do these guys have the right stuff?

I had a hell of a good time with this movie and liked it more than I thought I would. Bought.

Despicable Me Check out our Review

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by an army of mischievous little minions, we discover Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon!).
Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. That is, until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad.

I had fun with this but the kids just loved it to death. This is surely to end up in the collection.

So what’s making your “must have” list this week?
