New on Blu-ray this month, reviews of five of the latest releases: Thor: Ragnorak, Coco, The Dark Crystal, Lady and the Tramp, and Darkest Hour.
Disney•Pixar’s Coco and Disney’s classic Lady and the Tramp arrived today with special Blu-ray editions, and The GATE is giving away both films for three lucky movie fans.
Actress, singer, and six-time Tony Award-winner Audra McDonald has transformed for her latest role, taking her from the stage to one of Disney’s most beloved stories. McDonald stars in the new live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast as Madame de Garderobe, the renowned Italian opera diva, and wife to Maestro Cadenza.
Disney’s Moana sets sail on Blu-ray next Tuesday, March 7, and The GATE is giving away three copies to get fans inspired to sing and and dance along with Moana and Maui.
Disney’s Tomorrowland recently arrived on Blu-ray and digital HD, and it’s one of the rare films in recent memory that personifies hope and a future that could be brighter and better. From the cast to the story, and even in some of the smallest details, hope seems ever-present, which is a message writer and director Brad Bird, and screenwriter Damon Lindelof, imagined from the beginning.
The future may be amazing in Disney’s Tomorrowland, but even a shiny future needs a few good men, and that’s where Matthew MacCaull comes in. In Tomorrowland, MacCaull plays Dave Clark, a government agent tasked with protecting the secrets of the place known as Tomorrowland, which seems to have a few threats.
Disney and Lucasfilm gave Star Wars fans a surprise last night with the long-awaited news that the Star Wars Saga–dubbed the Star Wars Digital Movie Collection–will arrive on Digital HD this Friday, April 10.
Maleficent star Elle Fanning recently visited Disneyland for the Disney Social Media Moms Conference, and to share footage from the film. Since Fanning stars as Aurora in the prequel, the iconic character from Sleeping Beauty, she also stopped to pose for photos in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle.
We all have our roles in life, but as the movie Wreck-It Ralph points out, it’s important to know the difference between who you are and what you do. In director Rich Moore’s Wreck-It Ralph, John C. Reilly stars as the voice of the villain, Wreck-It Ralph, from an eight-bit eighties-style game called Fix-It Felix, Jr.
Just got my copy of John Carter on Blu-ray and can’t wait to review it.
While some critics were less than impressed, I was a big fan and I would bet the film will do well on Blu-ray.
