It’s that time, Patrollers! The DVD Patrol hopes things start warming up weatherwise because they’re really hot on the movie front. Your Weatherman, the Toddster, sees a movie storm headed our way and it’s going to cause a lot of commotion. We hope everyone enjoyed the Johnny Depp special last time. Time to look out the window.

Tangled - Disney is back doing what they do best when they take an old story and put a new spin on it. A woman’s hair can be considered extremely sacred especially to the woman it belongs to. Flynn Rider (Zachary Levi) is about to find that out firsthand. Flynn is a bandit and pretty good at it but when everyone starts to look for him, he decides to hide out in what he thinks is an abandoned tower. He find out that a young girl named Rapunzel (Mandy Moore) has lived there for years and she has a secret weapon – about 70 feet of long golden hair and has all kinds of uses for it too. The two make a pact and after they leave the tower, they find themselves on the craziest journey. Will Rapunzel and Flynn be able to find what they want out of life being together? A great one from Disney. Levi can be seen on the NBC hit “Chuck” Monday nights on NBC at 8 p.m. A couple of other Disney Hits hitting shelves are “Bambi” and “The Fox and the Hound” coming soon.
Black Swan - Fame has a way of turning a person’s head around. Nina (Natalie Portman) has always dedicated her life to the dance and Ballet. Working for many years has also taken its’ toll on her too. She has always been hard pressed to please herself and her mother. Nina gets the chance of a lifetime when she gets the chance to dance in a major production in New York City. Things start to happen way too fast after the choices she makes start to take a toll on her sanity and may make her think that her understudy Lilly (Mila Kunis) wants to take her out of the picture. Is Nina right about everything or is it all in her mind? Kunis has just been cast to star in “Oz” (the new remake of “The Wizard of Oz). Portman, who just won the Oscar for Best Actress, has two more movies set for release in “Your Highness” with Danny Mcbride and James Franco coming out in April and “Thor” will be in theaters in May.
