Keep cool, Patrollers! The DVD Patrol has been going through a lot of warm and cold spells finding all the great movies in theaters and on DVD. Things aren’t going to slow down any time soon either. “Captain America: The First Avenger” is coming out in theaters today and the Toddster can’t wait. In the meantime, there are a few we can catch at home or something needed for a lazy if you feel like playing hookie from what you’re supposed to be doing. I wish I could but I know I would get caught. Time to see what’s cool this week.
New on DVD
Limitless - We all would like to be able to do what we can’t. Just ask Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper). Eddie is a writer trying to write a book, but can’t write anything. Writer’s block really stinks. His problems might be over when his friend gives him a pill that could take all his troubles away. It’s called NZT and it totally changes gives Eddie all ability he could ever need. It gives the ability to remember everything down to the smallest detail and he uses it to make some money. This brings him to the attention of Carl Van Loon (Robert Deniro). Loon is working on a corporate merger and he thinks Eddie might be able to help him. Eddie is running out of NZT and is now suffering the withdrawal symptoms. Carl finally discovers Eddie’s little advantage. It becomes a race. Can Eddie stay ahead of Carl and his goons to find a way to survive? Deniro teams up with Action Hero Jason Statham in “Killer Elite coming out in September.
Take Me Home Tonight - Things happen in our lives that we’ll always talk about. Matt (Topher Grace) just graduated from college and really had a lot of potential to do more. His sister Wendy (Anna Faris) knew this. Matt was just satisfied with working at the video store. Then he met Tori (Teresa Palmer). Matt seemed to hit it off and she invited him to a party for the end of the Summer. He really needed to impress her so he asks his pal Barry (Dan Fogler) for help and they “borrow” a ferrari from the dealership. Matt meets up with Tori at the Party and gets roped into a dance contest. He might be in over his head with a stolen car and not being able to dance. Is he in over his head or will Matt get the girl of his dreams? Grace has a list of some good DVDs including “Spider Man #3,” “Predators,” and “Valentine’s Day.”..
