‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ hacks and slashes it way to Blu-ray

Texas-Chainsaw-3D1New to Blu-ray, in a 3D Blu-ray/Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, from VVS films is the latest attempt at rebooting the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, this time by making a direct sequel to the 1974 original and ignoring all the sequels that came after, “Texas Chainsaw 3D”. After the rights for the series lapsed from Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes production company, after 2 very lackluster remakes, and back to the original rights holders, the concept behind Texas Chainsaw 3D was launched. The intentions were to reboot the series all over again and producing a string of follow-ups each year in same vein as the “Saw” films.

‘Pawn’ outmaneuvers itself and falls flat on Blu-ray

pawn-blu-ray-cover-68

 

New to Blu-ray from Anchor Bay Entertainment is the star studded film directorial debut from the cinematographer/director of photography of the “Saw” franchise David A. Armstrong, Pawn. The crime thriller also reunites Forest Whitaker briefly with his “Shield” co-star Michael Chiklis, with Chiklis this time firmly on the opposite of the law and sporting a less than impressive cockney accent.

‘Grave Encounters 2’ fails to scare up interest on Blu-ray

Grave-Encounter-main

New to DVD and Blu-ray exclusively from Anchor Bay Entertainment Canada and Indiecan Entertainment is the newest addition to the found footage horror genre that takes into the halls of a rundown asylum that may house the spirits of the deceased with Grave Encounters 2. The first Grave Encounters came out of nowhere and became an improbable hit so the question remains that with an increased budget and backing can the sequel deliver as much as the original did?

Grave Encounters 2

Starring: Richard Harmon, Sean Rogerson, Leanne Lapp, Dylan Playfair, Stephanie Bennett and Howard Lai

Written by The Vicious Brothers

Directed by John Poliquin

In 2011 the found footage horror film Grave Encounters about a ghost hunting TV crew being haunted to their apparent deaths in an abandoned mental institute became an internet and festival sensation. In the sequel Grave Encounters 2 Alex (Harmon), (more…)

Written by David Magee based on the novel by Yann Martel

Directed by Ang Lee

Fresh offof director Ang Lee`s best directing Oscar win, Fox Home Entertainment brings Life of Pi to DVD and Blu-ray. The tale of faith and perseverance was a 4 year passion project for most involved, director Ang Lee no exception as he jumped in both feet first. The worldwide smash cost hundreds of millions to finally bring the book many thought was ‘un-filmable’ to the screen. So how will the grand spectacle transfer over to the small screen?

Brother Bear 2 directed by Ben Gluck

New this week from Disney is a handful of 3 disc Blu-ray Double Features, one of which is for the Disney animated film Brother Bear and its direct to video sequel Brother Bear 2. When Brother Bear came out in 2003, during what some regard as the ‘lean years ‘of Disney animation when Pixar dominated everything they produced, it was bumped from the traditional Disney summer release slot in favor of the immensely popular Finding Nemo. Making its way to a double feature Blu-ray with its sequel for the first time, the question remains is it worth the purchase price?
