The new high school football bio-pic, When The Game Stands Tall is out this week and sadly it fumbles. You know when you see a ton of hype before a movie on TV? That usually means there is trouble - and there is.
The new teen-drama, If I Stay opened up over the weekend to a decent box office take, but to very mild, if not unkind reviews.
This week there are a few new choices for you to stream or shove in the DVD machine. The next few weeks will have far more than this week, as the early summer movies will make their way out.

Understanding that you may not get to the theaters to see the latest movies, this week we will look at the hottest DVD and streaming movies that are out. We will look at only major DVD movie releases of the week and not TV series, or older movies finally making their way onto Blu-Ray.
Since movies are released faster than ever to home viewing formats, you really are not all that far behind. I will post these on generally on Tuesdays, as that is the day most new DVD's and streaming begin. I will also link you back to my written review of that movie from the theater run to help you make an informed decision before you rent, buy, or hit pay on your remote.
New This Week
The second in the Hunger Game series, and where the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman made his debut in this series.
Won the Oscar last week for Best Picture. This is a harsh movie that won't be suitable for everyone. But very good.
Josh Brolin, and the wonderful Elizabeth Olsen star in one of the oddest movies of 2013. This is a small Independent movie that is an acquired taste for sure.
