DVD Review for March 18, 2014

Rated PG-13
Stars: Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Colin Farrell
Plot: The, based on a true story, relationship between Walt Disney and P.L. Travers as he tried to get the rights to make the movie of Mary Poppins.

Clint says: Drop everything and go buy this DVD now

This was my favorite movie of 2013. It is an incredible story told in a very compelling and emotional way. This movie stuck with me for days after I saw it, and for someone that sees close to 100 movies a year, that is very impressive. I highly recommend SAVING MR. BANKS.

Do not be fooled that this is Disney and Mary Poppins, this is not a movie for young children. It has several adult themes and a few scenes that are difficult even for adults to watch.

Rated R
Stars: Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner
Plot: A small-time con couple are forced into working with the FBI to try to bring down some powerful political figures.

Clint Says: Buy this DVD as soon as possible

With 10 Oscar nominations, AMERICAN HUSTLE proved itself to be one of the elite films of the past year. The plot is exciting and fast-paced and the cast is superb. You can't go wrong buying this DVD.

Rated PG
Stars: Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff
Plot: A young girl must journey to find her self-exiled sister and help her find a way to control her magical powers in order to bring their kingdom out of an eternal winter.

Clint Says: Buy this DVD as soon as possible

FROZEN is an incredible movie that kids and adults will enjoy. This is one of those films that you just know is an instant classic. The story is fun and exciting, the music is wonderful and the animation is ground-breaking.

This will be the DVD in your mini-van for a long time.

Rated PG-13
Stars: Idris Elba, Naomie Harris
Plot: The story of the life of Nelson Mandela from childhood to the President of South Africa.

Clint Says: Rent it

This is a very impressive film, but, let's face it, Nelson Mandela is bigger than any one movie could ever hope to capture. It is worth a watch if you didn't get a chance to see it in theaters, but it's not the kind of movie you'll want to watch again and again. Rent it, enjoy it and then move on to another movie.
