On DVD This Week: Trainwreck, Better Call Saul, Terminator: Genisys, and More

by | November 9, 2015 | Comments

This week on home video, we’ve got Amy Schumer’s breakout comedy, the first season of an Emmy-nominated Breaking Bad spinoff, and the latest in the Terminator franchise. Then, we’ve also got a unique take on Sherlock Holmes starring Ian McKellen, an acclaimed indie dramedy, a sci-fi thriller, and a new Criterion release. Read on for the full list:

Trainwreck (2015) 85%

Amy Schumer stars as a hard-partying magazine writer who has spent her life avoiding romantic entanglements — until she meets Aaron (Bill Hader). He’s successful, he’s earnest, and he really, really likes her; can our heroine find it in herself to settle down? Special features include deleted scenes, gag reel, and, exclusive to the Blu-ray, extended scenes and a trio of making-of featurettes.

Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) goes back in time to defend Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) from a killer robot. But when he arrives, he discovers that Sarah has joined forces with the T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger), altering the future and setting up an apocalyptic battle between man and machine. The few extras include three making-of docs that come to about an hour of content, and it’s also available in a 3D edition.

    TRAINWRECK – 8/10; TERMINATOR 5 – 3/10

    I’ll watch BETTER CALL SAUL (because I saw BREAKING BAD), but it seems like it won’t air here on TV. Maybe I’ll also watch TANGERINE, SELFLESS and MR. HOLMES.

      Selfless was better than what the ratings here say.
