DVD Patrol: Godzilla, Arrow, Casper

Time to start heading for the hills, Patrollers! The DVD Patrol has pulled out some good ones but this time it's coming in with everything from a big lizard and an emerald archer to a heroic cop and your above average friendly ghost. The Toddster has some plans on the way but you'll have to read on to see what they are.

New on DVD

Godzilla (2014)- When you're trying to do a job, sometimes you can't often help it when something unexpected arrives. Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) worked in a nuclear power plant and were working in Japan. Something bad happens when something causes the plant to explode and Joe's wife is killed in the process. Time passes and Joe is still trying to find out what caused the explosion but the officials in Japan don't want anyone to know about it. Joe's son Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is called in to help stop Joe from digging any deeper. That might become a problem when the monster that destroyed the plant has come back to do it again. The only thing that they discover that there is another monster that has been awakened that might have a chance to subdue it. Dubbed "Godzilla," the Brody's are caught in the middle but can they make it out alive in between the battle that's coming? My sources tell me that a sequel is already in the works but not slated for release until 2018. Stay tuned!

Brick Mansions- Jobs just aren't the same once you get started on them. Damien Collier (Paul Walker) was a good cop and good at his job. He gets the ultimate assignment when he finds out that a crimelord is holding the city hostage. The problem is Damien has to go undercover into a tough neighborhood because where the thugs are is in a tough part of the city. Damien will need help in the form of Lino (David Belle). Lino knows the city but has his own way of getting the job done and he doesn't like how his part of town has turned around. Can the two of them find some common ground and stop the city from being destroyed? Walker still has one more project to give us when he can be seen in "Fast and Furious 7" slated for release in theaters next year.

Also on DVD

Arrow (Season 2)-Being good at something can take a toll. Just ask Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell). In the Season 2 Premiere, Oliver stopped Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) from completely destroying Starling City but not without paying a heavy price for an enormous earthquake that devastated the city too. So Oliver decides to leave. His partners John Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) decide to go after him to at least save the family business. They convince him to come back but he's totally against putting on the hood again. He has no choice after he finds out that a masked gang of thugs costumed like him have started a wave of terror on the city and committing crimes in his name.(That would make anybody mad.) They cross the line when they kidnap his sister Thea (Willa Holland) Can Oliver become the Arrow again to stop them? Amell returns for action in Season 3 that starts on the CW network Wednesday October 8 at 8PM.

New on Blu-Ray

Casper- There's no such thing as ghosts. Try telling that to James Harvey (Bill Pullman). James got interested in the paranormal after he lost his wife. After this, he wanted to find out all he could about it so that there might the chance to see his wife again. James comes to an oldhouse to find out how haunted it is and he brings his daughter Kat (Christina Ricci) with him. Kat isn't really a believer but all that is about to change when she meets Casper. Casper is a nice kid . The only thing different about him is that he is really a ghost but doesn't want to scare anyone really. Now some shady developers want to take the house but if they do that, Casper and the other ghosts of the manor will drift away into nothing. Can Kat find a way with her Dad's help to save Casper? Another Ghost adventure re-releases Ghostbusters onto DVD celebrating the 30th anniversary and will be coming soon onto DVD shelves.

We've been telling for awhile that there have been some specials in the works. Next week we have one of those just for you. It would spoil the surprise if we told you what it was. For now, you're just going to have to come back next time to see what there is happening. The Toddster is back next week.
