On DVD This Week: Fist Fight, Before I Fall, and More

by | May 29, 2017 | Comments

They can’t all be winners, and this week’s selection of new DVDs proves it. Though we do have a decent high concept coming-of-age film, it’s followed by a trio of new movies that earned less than stellar reviews. Nevertheless, there might still be something in there for those of you looking for an absurd comedy, a faith-based drama, or an action thriller, plus a couple of new choices from Criterion. Read on for the full list.
