Once again, my esteemed colleague Morton Salt is competing in an international underground fighting tournament, where the only prize is YOUR LIFE, so he’s left me to handle all the heavy lifting of this week’s DVD and Blu Ray releases, as well as the new-ish titles on Netflix. Your options this week are a plenty, so pick and choose as you see fit.
Available on DVD this week: The Internship, Before Midnight, The Conjuring, Only God Forgives, The Way Way Back, Standing Up, Shepard & Dark, Dead in Tombstone, The Waiting Room, I Give it a Year
New on Streaming: 21 & Over, Paranormal Activity 4
But I’ll understand if you need a little help picking a great Friday night date night movie, so I’ll walk you through these titles right now. SPOILER: I’d rather go on a butterscotch diet for a week than let anyone watch 21 & Over.
Starring: Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, that guy from The Daily Show who is always screaming
Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson) are salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. But, gaining entrance to this utopia is only half the battle. Now they must compete with a group of the nation’s most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of re-invention.
