What do you say we take a look and see if anyone has something they want to see.
New on DVD
X-Men: First Class - Friendships all start somewhere and rivalries start this way too. Charles Xavier (James Mcavoy) and Erik Lensherr (Micheal Fassbender) meet under some unusual circumstances and find they are on the same mission. It seems Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon) is trying to pit the United States and Russia against one another and Shaw has recruited his own team of Mutants to help him with it. Charles and Erik decide to fight fire with fire and find their own team to stop them. Beginning with Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), they find Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Havok (Lucas Till), Darwin (Edi Gathegi), and Angel (Zoe Kravitz). During the course of the mission, Erik decides he wants things to end a certain way but Charles wants to do it peacefully. Can their difference find a way for success to complete the mission? My sources tell me that there are other first class missions in the works for our Mutant Heroes and also filming on “Wolverine 2” begins soon with Hugh Jackman.
Hanna - Things can always change when everything you were taught aren’t what you thought. Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) wasn’t the normal teenager at a first glance. Hanna’s Dad (Eric Bana) was an Ex-CIA Operative who had a mission that went bad and didn’t want to happen to her. After she gets a bit older, her Father leaves her and she deicides she must leave to find those that might want to hurt her or even her Father. She goes after an old colleague that her Dad worked with named Marissa (Cate Blanchett). Marissa knows she is coming and has to find out what she wants or even what her old partner really wants. Will Hanna complete her mission or is there something else at work here? Some other DVDs starring Bana include “Funny People,””Blackhawk Down,” and “Lucky You” (with Drew Barrymore).
