Hot Tub Time Machine
Hot Tub Time Machine follows a group of best friends who’ve become bored with their adult lives: Adam has been dumped by his girlfriend; Lou is a party guy who can’t find the party; Nick’s wife controls his every move; and video game-obsessed Jacob won’t leave his basement. After a crazy night of drinking in a ski resort hot tub, the men wake up, heads’ pounding, in the year 1986. This is their chance to kick some past and change their futures – one will find a new love life, one will learn to stand up for himself with the ladies, one will find his mojo, and one will make sure he still exists!
Starring: John Cusack, Clark Duke, Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, Crispin Glover, Lizzy Caplan, Collette Wolfe, and Chevy Chase.
Directed by Steve Pink (Accepted)
Yes folks, the movie with this stupid title is worth watching. John Cusack redeems himself for 2012 with this film by doing what he used to do best, making people laugh. The only thing that’s preventing this to be a buy is that it doesn’t have much extras other than the usuals, in which a rental should cover the few extras worth watching.
A husband and wife in a small Midwestern town find themselves battling for survival as their friends and family descend into madness in The Crazies. A mysterious toxin in the water supply turns everyone exposed to it into mindless killers and the authorities leave the uninfected to their certain doom in this terrifying reinvention of the George Romero horror classic.
Starring: Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell, Danielle Panabaker, and Joe Anderson.
Directed by Breck Eisner (Sahara, The upcoming Flash Gordon project)
Another remake and another zombie-esque flick, which may be tiresome for some of ya’ll but give this film a chance. While it may be a remake of one Romero’s film, it does it’s own thing to grab the attention of the audiences. S0 check the flick out to see if other critics were right when saying that this remake is one of the few that works.
Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lighting Thief
Trouble-prone Percy Jackson is having problems in high school – but that’s the least of his challenges. It’s the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus seem to have walked out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology texts and into his life. Percy has learned that his real father is Poseidon, god of the sea, which means Percy is a demigod – half human, half god. At the same time, the powerful gods on Olympus are feuding, which could launch a war enveloping our entire planet.
Starring: Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Sean Bean, Pierce Brosnan, Steve Coogan, Rosario Dawson, Catherine Keener, Kevin McKidd, Joe Pantoliano, Uma Thurman, and Ray Winstone.
Directed By Chris Columbus (Harry Potter 1 & 2, Home Alone 1&2)
Once again, we got another movie that wants to do the franchise thing that Harry Potter is. The movie barely got the rental title and that is why this is recommended for parents who was afraid to show their kids Harry Potter because it seemed too dark. Other than that, it may have a nice cast of actors but the movie is too long for it’s own good.
Old Movies Are New Again: This is a list of old films being re-released as Blu-Ray that were worth mentioning.

Ya know, there is something in common for all three release that are listed above. All three shows are pretty much the whole “something of the week” type show. Warehouse 13 is the “find the mystery/supernatural object of the week show.” Eureka is the “solve the problem that the city has of the week show.” Of course, the 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo should be self-explanatory. Both Eureka and Warehouse 13 are pretty entertaining show from Syfy and Scooby-Doo is always good for any age, thus why all three is recommended for fans of the series.
