The summer is heating up, Patrollers! The DVD Patrol is getting pretty busy with more movies coming up. Even meeting up with some neighbors who keep on top of movies just like the Toddster. Hope everyone survived the Gus Macker shindig last week. We have to do what we are the best at. Let’s see what there is.
New on DVD
The Lincoln Lawyer - Everyone does their job in their own way and it works for them. Meet Mickey Haller (Matthew McConaughey). Mickey was just your average Attorney who wanted to do the job his way so he operates out of the last place you would expect – his car. He pretty much does what he does until he gets the biggest of his career. Mickey sees Louis Roulet (Ryan Phillipe) who has been accused of rape and murder. The counselor does what he does best until there are things about his client he discovers that make him regret taking this case. Now, he has to start watching his own back when Louis starts threatening his family and friends. Louis may have taken on more than he bargained for. Will Mickey find a way to put this latest case away and protect his family at the same time? McConaughey’s next project comes to theaters in “Bernie” later in 2011.
Arthur - There are a few in life who are raised with the privilege of having money. Arthur (Russell Brand) happens to be one of them. He’s had everything catered to him his entire life and he likes to drink a bit too much that often gets him in trouble. Now his Mother wants him to grow up a bit because his family has arranged for him to meet Susan (Jennifer Garner) and get married. The more time Arthur spends with her, the more he knows that she is not the right person for him. Arthur has his eye on a pretty tour guide named Linda (Greta Gerwig). Arthur’s mother finds out about this and gives him a choice. Either he marries Susan and leaves Linda alone or he will cut off with no money? Brand has some great DVD choices out there from the vaults in including “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Hop,” and “Get Him To The Greek” with Jonah Hill.
