Looks like the day after Memorial Day is a slow one for DVDs. There are only two new DVD and Blu-ray movies worth mentioning this week. New releases include Seventh Son (review | Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Ben Barne) and The Loft (Karl Urban and James Marsden). I saw Seventh Son at the theater and enjoyed it. I might even watch it again on DVD. Not sure about The Loft. Should I watch it? Continue reading for a summary of the new Blu-ray and DVD films for this week.
DVDs coming out the week of May 26, 2015
- Seventh Son (review)
In a time long past, an evil is about to be unleashed that will reignite the war between the forces of the supernatural and humankind once more. Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) is a knight who had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), centuries ago. But now she has escaped and is seeking vengeance. Summoning her followers of every incarnation, Mother Malkin is preparing to unleash her terrible wrath on an unsuspecting world. Only one thing stands in her way: Master Gregory. In a deadly reunion, Gregory comes face to face with the evil he always feared would someday return. He has only until the next full moon to do what usually takes years: train his new apprentice, Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) to fight a dark magic unlike any other. Man’s only hope lies in the seventh son of a seventh son.
- The Loft
Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness) and James Marsden (2 Guns) star in the tense psychological thriller The Loft, the story of five guys who conspire to secretly share a penthouse loft in the city — a place where they can indulge in their deepest fantasies. But the fantasy becomes a nightmare when they discover the dead body of an unknown woman in the loft, and they realize one of the group must be involved. Paranoia seizes them as everyone begins to suspect one another. Friendships are tested, loyalties are questioned and marriages crumble as the group is consumed by fear, suspicion and murder in this relentless thriller.
