We’re heating things up, Patrollers! The DVD Patrol is keeping its’ promises and the Toddster does his best to deliver. Not only so we have some new movies on DVD but also some movie reviews for movies in the theater too. A team up is coming as well, but more on that later. Here we are!
New on DVD
Secretariat - A lot of stories these days has someone proving that they have what it takes to succeed. Disney has a knack or finding these kinds of movies. Based on a true story, Secretariat tells the tale of Penny Chenery (Diane Lane). Penny’s father owned a horse ranch and when he couldn’t, Penny stepped into help. When she started, she found a horse that she thought had the right stuff but needed help. A trainer named Laurin (John Malkovich) convinced her that they may have a chance. Will Penny’s horse be able to win it all? Lane has some other great DVDs including “Nights in Rodanthe” (with Richard Gere), “Killshot” (with Mickey Rourke), and “Chaplin” (with Robert Downey Jr) now in stores.
Red - Sometimes when people decide to make changes, they have more left to offer than they think. Based on the graphic novel, Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) always carried out his contracts working for the CIA. Frank also worked with his friends Joe (Morgan Freeman), Marvin (John Malkovich), and Victoria (Helen Mirren). He finds out that he and his friends have been targeted because they know too much. Now they have to break into the CIA to find out why. Can the team make things right before it’s too late? My sources tell me that Willis may return with Stallone in a sequel to “The Expendables.” A few DVDs with starring Willis in the past couple of years in stores now include “Cop Out’ (with Tracy Morgan), “The Surrogates,” and “Perfect Stranger” (with Halle Berry).
