Welcome to Turkey Friday, Patrollers! The DVD Patrol is coming out on Black Friday but a lot of us are still recovering from Turkey withdrawal and all of that kind of stuff (or stuffing in this case). Anyway, the Toddster has been pretty busy coming up with a few new DVDs and even a movie review. Here we go!
New on DVD
Super 8 - It’s funny how when there is something we like to do can change our lives forever. For a young group of kids, that’s about to be proof positive. They had their own movie club and decided to make a movie using the new Super 8 millimeter camera they just purchased. Now, their movie is about to become reality before reality TV was discovered. Filming a monster movie down by the train tracks may not have been such a good idea after a train crashes and something gets loose. Following this, strange things start to happen and people and animals start to disappear. Can our young heroes gets to the bottom of it and figure out who or what is behind what’s going on? From the minds of Steven Spielberg and JJ Abrams. Spielberg is about release his first animated movie called ‘The Adventures of Tintin” coming out in December. Abrams teams with Tom Cruise to produce “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” in theaters Dec. 21.
Conan the Barbarian - Once the world was a fierce and savage place. Anything could happen to everyone and everything. A force of evil has risen and is preying on whatever is in its’ path. This force makes its way to Hyboria but a lone warrior named Conan (Jason Momoa) decides that this will be stopped and he’s the only one who can do it. He has his work cut out for him as menacing warlords, monstrous sorceresses, and terrible creatures want to stop him. Is Conan up to the challenge? Momoa can be seen on the HBO show “Game of Thrones” available on DVD. Also, if you want to see where Momoa got his start, check out ‘Stargate Atlantis” available on DVD in all stores.
