TOY STORY 4

Except for that rather frightening burning furnace scene near the end, Toy Story 3 wrapped up everything nicely. The toys had successfully been moved to Bonnie’s home, Buzz and Jessie started a new romance and everyone was happy. But one character was missing: Bo Peep. In Toy Story 4, we not only learn what happened to the porcelain lamp figurine, but we get re-introduced to the character in her triumphant return to the screen. Read more>>>

MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL

The sci-fi/cop/comedy franchise known as Men in Black has always traveled a wavy road. The original which came out in 1997 and starred Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith got huge accolades despite that it included a lot of gross or disturbing physical gags. When the second chapter arrived in 2002, the gross humor got worse and so did the reviews. However, the franchise was able to redeem itself (mostly) for Men in Black 3 ten years later. Fast forward seven more years and we have a new story with new characters and locales. Read More>>>

The Lion King

THE LION KING

Jon Favreu’s take on Walt Disney’s original animated The Jungle Book surprised just about everybody earning a 94% “fresh” rating from Rotten Tomatoes. Favreu managed to take everything we loved about The Jungle Book and added a few twists and turns to the story. Anticipation has been high to see if the director can do it again with the new incarnation of The Lion King. Read More>>>

ALADDIN

One of the best things about Disney reimagining their great animated movies into live action films is seeing how each of the writers and directors put their unique spin on the stories. It’s got to be a scary thing to try to reproduce a Disney classic in a new, fresh way that fans will accept. Sometimes it’s done well, like in the case of Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella and Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book where the story is essentially the same but there are enough changes to make them stand out on their own.

Coming Soon to DVD and Blu-Ray

AVAILABLE AUGUST 6, 2019
The first-ever live-action Pokémon movie, Pokémon Detective Pikachu stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character in the first-ever live-action movie based on the iconic face of the global Pokémon brand—one of the world’s most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and most successful media franchises of all time.

AVAILABLE AUGUST 13, 2019
From the very first Iron-Man film to the recent Captain Marvel, each of the 22 films related to each other and now we’re coming to an end of an era. Oh sure, there’s still plenty of Marvel stories to be told, but this is the last one to feature a cameo of Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee and one of the few that doesn’t feature an extra scene at the end of the credits.
