Your Mid-Week Guide To DVD And Streaming: The Heat, Pacific Rim, Room 237 And More

My nephew from another brother, Morton Salt, is currently producing his one-man stage show about the life of his dentist, so he has once again left me to fill in for this week’s guide to DVD and streaming. And it’s a shame that I didn’t have the time to do it last week, because I could have told everyone all about how awesome The Hangover Pt. III and After Earth were before covering my face with my hands to stifle my laughter.

But hopefully you were wise enough to grab a copy of The Purge on your own last week when it was released on DVD and Blu Ray, because that was the second unintentionally funniest movie I watched this year behind White House Down, which is still one of the greatest movies ever made. That said, your choices are much better this week.

New on DVD and Blu Ray: The Heat, Pacific Rim, Maniac, The Colony, A Hijacking, Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain, ThanksKilling 3, Embrace of the Vampire, Dirty Wars, Plush

Streaming: Room 237, Hammer of the Gods, Escape From Planet Earth

But the question remains – should you watch any of these movies? Yes. Now find out which movies are for you through my incredible scientific breakdown.
