A limp, dull animated sequel that pretty much ignores everything that made its predecessor a low key charmer, The Secret Life of Pets 2 is a film that only exists to sell merchandise to kids and adults in the laziest possible way.
This week on DVD and Blu-ray, Matt Damon stars in Steven Soderbergh‘s corporate drama, The Informant!; Cameron Diaz and James Marsden play a troubled couple in the sci-fi film, The Box; plus a look at Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant and Sorority Row.
Coming out this week on Blu-ray and DVD, director Kathryn Bigelow‘s The Hurt Locker debuts after months of critical acclaim, while Sam Rockwell stars in the minimalistic sci-fi drama, Moon. Other new releases include Big Fan, Fame, and Halloween II.
Thanks to the American holiday this week we’re being treated to a string of new films opening a little earlier in theatres. New films include the post-apocalyptic drama, The Road; the animated Fantastic Mr. Fox; Disney’s tired looking comedy, Old Dogs; action extravaganza, Ninja Assassin; plus, the dramatic comedy, Big Fan.
