Vice- Everyone likes to go to a resort to get away from it all. The latest is one called "Vice." Vice is a place where anyone can go to fulfill their wildest fantasies. The people who live there are a type of clone who can be programmed for the guests to live whatever they want to do without any regard for the clones who aren't self aware. That is all about to change when one of them named Kelly (Amber Childers). Somehow, she leaves and become self aware. Julian (Bruce Willis), who's in charge of the resort, needs to get her back before anyone finds out what she really is or something bad happens. Roy (Thomas Jane) was a cop who worked the streets and always did his job. He really didn't care for Vice and the more he finds out this case, he doesn't like.

Jane is getting ready to star in "The Expanse" where he plays a detective working on a spaceship set 200 years in the future trying to solve the murder of a woman. The show is set for release on the Syfy Channel later this year.
Marvel's Daredevil- Even though we're the DVD Patrol, we're always doing other things that have to do with Television and Movies. Movie reviews and other fun stuff are always happening. Now we'll feature something you can stream from time to time. Our latest show brings in the first of Marvel's deal with Netflix that will have a number of characters from their library. The first of which has Daredevil. Meet Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox). When Matt was a kid, he notices when a man was trying to cross the street, a truck was about to hit him. Matt acted and he knocked the man out of the way. The truck crashed and spilled toxic material onto the street. Matt was exposed to it and it blinded him. It also left him with superhuman senses. Matt's Father was a boxer who didn't win a lot of fights but he tried to be a good Father to him. He was killed when he wouldn't throw a fight. This instilled a sense of justice into him that has carried him along in his life. In the First Episode, years later, Matt and his friend Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) have started a law practice together and their first client has a woman who is accused of murder. Matt knows she's innocent and will use his talents to find out what the real story is where he prowls the night as a masked crimefighter fighting for justice. Can he save his client from being convicted? On Netflix, you can stream all 13 episodes with Season 2 in the works and will be out on DVD at a later date.

Furious 7- Vin Diesel and Paul Walker team up for one last ride. After taking down Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) and rescuing Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Dominic Torretto (Vin Diesel) and Brian O'Connor (Paul Walker) thought they were done with all things illegal. It seems Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) isn't exactly happy with what's happened to his brother who lies in a coma. Federal Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) warns Dom that Shaw isn't someone to be trifled with. Then Dom receives a visit from a man only known as "Mr. Nobody" (Kurt Russell) who will help Dom and the family for a price. Dom has to rescue a hacker who has invented a device called "Godseye" that can tap into everything electronic to find out about anything on anyone. If he does this, Mr. Nobody will deliver Shaw to Dom on a silver platter. While he does this, Shaw keeps coming after Dom wherever he goes. Will Dom be able to rescue the hacker and finally take down Shaw?
The Toddster's Take- These sequels just keep getting better. I loved all the action and it was great seeing a movie that relied on practical and not all things CGI. Knowing this was Walker's last movie, many were wondering how it would be done and you'll find out. Diesel and the rest of the cast were incredible and seeing Statham as a bad guy was really good. They always say playing a villain is more fun anyway. My sources tell me that #8 is already in the works. Race to see this!
There are more on the way including "Avengers: Age of Ultron" in the weeks ahead. There are also more specials in the works for you too.
