Hitman: Agent 47

Release Date: Tuesday, December 29, 2015

See it on Amazon for $19.99 (Blu-ray)
From our Review: Movies based on video games don't exactly have a great track record. In fact, a poorly received adaptation of the Hitman game franchise already arrived on the big screen in 2007. Knowing these facts could easily cause one to think twice before going to see the new Hitman: Agent 47 on the big screen. Those who do go, however, may be pleased with their decision.


Release Date: Tuesday, December 29, 2015

See it on Amazon for $16.99 (Blu-ray)
From our Review: Heist (no relation to the 2001 David Mamet film) appears on the surface to combine Oceanís Eleven with Speed, which is to say it features a casino robbery and a hostage situation on a moving bus. Though thereís no way it could match the cleverness of Oceanís or the thrills of Speed, itís almost as if the filmmakers were hoping to crib enough plot points and visual cues to get those classics mentioned in any review of their movie. Mission accomplished though the comparisons are predictably unfavorable.

Bone Tomahawk

Release Date: Tuesday, December 29, 2015

See it on Amazon for $14.99 (Blu-ray)
From our Review: Bone Tomahawk takes two very different genres and smashes them together in pretty successful fashion. Initially the film is a western, set in a town called Bright Hope and filled with rogues on either side of the law. As is typical, a mysterious stranger shows up, raises suspicion, and ruffles the feathers of sheriff Franklin Hunt (Kurt Russell).

A Walk in the Woods

Release Date: Tuesday, December 29, 2015

See it on Amazon for $14.99 (Blu-ray)
Celebrated travel writer, Bill Bryson (Robert Redford), instead of retiring to enjoy his loving and beautiful wife (Emma Thompson), and large and happy family, challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail - 2,200 miles of America's most unspoiled, spectacular and rugged countryside from Georgia to Maine. The peace and tranquility he hopes to find, though, is anything but, once he agrees to being accompanied by the only person he can find willing to join him on the trek - his long lost and former friend Katz (Nick Nolte), a down-on-his-luck serial philanderer who, after a lifetime of relying on his charm and wits to keep one step ahead of the law Ė sees the trip as a way to sneak out of paying some debts and sneak into one last adventure before its too late. The trouble is, the two have a completely different definition of the word, "adventure". Now they're about to find out that when you push yourself to the edge, the real fun begins.

Kill the Plumber
Release Date: Friday, January 1, 2016

See it on Steam (PC)
The first game of the new year will be a turn-the-tables riff on Super Mario Bros., as you'll take command of Goombas, Bullet Bills, Thwomps and other baddies and try to "Kill the Plumber." (Not actually Mario-branded, of course. It's all parody here.)
