We’re back with another DVD Tuesday, and this week’s got some quality DVD releases that we’ve been eagerly waiting for! Keep reading to see what you should pick up this week:
The Dark Knight Rises – It’s been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
Butter is a quirky film that sort of works as a straight-up comedy, and sort of works as the satire it seems intended to be. What helps propel Butter forward and engage the audience is the first-rate cast. Jennifer Garner and Ty Burrell play Iowans Laura and Bob, whose lives have centered on the very Midwestern phenomenon of butter sculpture.
Bob’s been having an affair with a cheeky stripper, Brooke (Olivia Wilde), who’s dying to find a way to go public with her affections for Laura’s husband. Enter the annual butter-sculpting contest. Bob’s decided to retire; Laura wants to carry on his tradition; Brooke wants to show up to cause emotional carnage. You’ll have to watch the movie to see how it all plays out!
V/H/S – A group of misfits are hired by an unknown third party to burglarize a desolate house in the countryside and acquire a rare tape. Upon searching the house the guys are confronted with a dead body a hub of old televisions and an endless supply of cryptic footage each video stranger and more inexplicably terrifying.
