by | December 7, 2015 | Comments

This week on home video, we’ve got the final chapter of Phase Two in Marvel’s cinematic universe, an animated spinoff, and a popular television series that met an untimely early demise. Then we’ve got a thriller starring Keanu Reeves, a rebooted action hero, and a couple of choices from Criterion. Read on for the full list:

Ant-Man (2015) 83%

Paul Rudd stars as Scott Lang, an ex-con who’s recruited by brilliant scientist Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) to execute a daring heist. Donning a suit that allows him to change size, Lang must infiltrate Pym’s old lab in order to ensure that a revolutionary technology doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. Included are a few making-of featurettes, deleted and extended scenes, and a gag reel. Also available this week is the Marvel Phase 2 Collection, which includes every Marvel movie from Iron Man 3 to Ant-Man and a full disc of bonus features.

    My thoughts on HANNIBAL’s 3rd season were the same ones I had on its 2nd season: A worst good TV series.

    I started watching the TRANSPORTER movies because I assumed the 4th one would be released here. It still hasn’t. Anyway, I’ll watch the 3rd one and then rent this 4th one.

    I enjoyed Ant Man a lot. The science doesn’t add up at all but that’s kinda accurate to the science in a comic book. It just doesn’t make sense. Also if Marvel can make an Ant Man movie and it be successful enough to Garner a sequel. DC should then be able to make a Booster Gold movie in the near future. Maybe with out a Batman Cameo. I mean they can’t shoe horn Batman into all their movies, right?
