I just got off the phone with UFC legend and jiu-jitsu icon Royce Gracie and I’m just in the mood to run around and start street fights now, so let’s get right into this week’s DVDs and streaming choices.

Available for your private viewing enjoyment this week:

Cloud Atlas

Texas Chainsaw 3D

Back to 1942

Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III

Liz & Dick

3, 2, 1… Frankie Go Boom

Tomorrow You’re Gone

Streaming: And I have a list of movies that I’ll be watching to resume Netflix Instant Theater next week, so I think I’ll start with John Dies in the End, so watch that for preparation.

Cloud Atlas

Synopsis: “Cloud Atlas explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future. Each member of the ensemble appears in multiple roles as the stories move through time.”

Should You Watch It? Yes. I forgot this was a movie that happened. Maybe I’ll watch it this week while I listen to Chet Haze’s dope new jamz.

Texas Chainsaw 3D

Synopsis: “A chainsaw-yielding killer known as Leatherface terrorizes a group of young teens.”

Should You Watch It? Yes. On one hand, I hate remakes. On the other hand, I like the succinct nature of that synopsis.

Back to 1942

Synopsis: “A deadly drought in 1942 takes its toll on central China’s Henan province during the war against Japan.”

Should You Watch It? No. Quit living in the past, Hollywood. Also, Back to 1942 < Back to School.
