What on earth will you watch with your family over the holidays? Here’s a rundown of new releases (though I can’t imagine my mother-in-law sitting through Kick-Ass 2):
Release o’ the week: Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony. The documentary examines the devoted male fans of My Little Pony and includes comments from the animated series’ creator and cast. It’s an interesting flick, even if you’ve never seen the show.
- Elysium. Matt Damon stars in Neill Blomkamp’s futuristic film.
- Kick-Ass 2. Despite mixed reviews and a diss from Jim Carrey, I’d still like to see this comic-based sequel.
- The Lone Ranger. Did Johnny Depp make another mistake, or is it really an overlooked gem, as Quentin Tarantino suggests?
- Psych: The Musical. Catch USA’s special episode, which comes with a soundtrack.
- The Sound of Music Live. I don’t know anyone who cares to watch this again, but in case you’re the exception …
Also out: Prisoners, Justified: The Complete Fourth Season, Burn Notice: Season Seven, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, The Family, Family Guy: Volume 12, One Direction: This Is Us, Percy Jackson, Sea of Monsters, Shameless: The Complete Third Season
Blu-ray highlight: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade are available separately in the format. (If you want ‘em all, just get the previously released box set!)
