Hot Movies & Shows on DVD! Maleficient (with a F21 #Fashion Slideshow) A Most Wanted Man, and Lots More!

Now is the perfect time to be buying some new movies for holiday gifting or holiday incentives (kids, teens). Lots of new releases will be coming out in anticipation of becoming part of holiday gifts. So cool is this movie (and I loved it when I saw it in a movie theater), that a collection of Forever 21 fashions were curated to reflect modern styles for Maleficient and Aurora!

To celebrate the release of Maleficent on Blu-ray/DVD combo Nov. 4, Disney and celebrity stylist Natalie Mark have teamed up with Forever 21 to put together these highly creative and stylish outfits inspired by the main characters in Disney’s live-action blockbuster.

Now on Blu-ray and/or DVD!:

Maleficient (Out on Tuesday 11/4)

MaleficentBlurayCombo-copy

If you haven’t heard (or seen the movie), Disney has redone Sleeping Beauty with live actors and it’s enough to scare the Skittles out of small children. Maleficient is a fabulous movie with killer performances from the entire cast. Special effects are terrific and are used to enhance the storyline, not substitute for it.


Dream Trailer. (Once Upon a Dream theme)

So see this with older children who aren’t easily scared of the dark or of pretty creatures who appear nice and turn out to be very evil. This telling of the story is not even close to the original Disney animated film. But then, what good would it be if it were?
The differences and similarities can be seen in this Disney trailer::

Reviews overall are pretty stellar. I saw it, loved it and wrote about it. However I did note that some smaller children are not up for these very intense visual effects. The sound is quite loud. Given that some families came in with very wee ones and babies and had to leave, says that maybe this isn’t for “sensitive” children or those under 4 years.

A Most Wanted Man

mostwantedman

Present day Hamburg: a tortured and near-dead half-Chechen, half-Russian man on the run arrives in the city’s Islamic community desperate for help and looking to recover his late Russian father’s ill-gotten fortune. Nothing about him seems to add up; is he a victim, thief or, worse still, an extremist intent on destruction? Drawn into this web of intrigue is a British banker and a young female lawyer, determined to defend the defenseless. All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit, who fights to put the pieces together as the clock ticks.

This R-rated flick is very taut and thrilling. Based on a John Le Carre book, there are good to excellent performances in this movie. One of Phillip Seymour’s last films before his death to be released .. along with the next DVD featured!

God’s Pocket
gods-pocket

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christina Hendricks star in this deliciously twisted comedy directed by Mad Men’s John Slattery. When Mickey’s (Hoffman) crazy stepson Leon is killed in a construction “accident,” nobody in the working class neighborhood of God’s Pocket is sorry he’s gone. Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, but when the boy’s mother demands the truth, Mickey finds himself stuck in a life-and-death struggle between a body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please and a debt he can’t pay. Also stars John Turturro and Richard Jenkins.

This movie is unrated. The cast is stellar and the performances match, the story is depressing according to some reviews and the plot is a bit formulaic. That said, it’s one of the last performances by Phillip Seymour Hoffman!
