Blu-ray and DVD Movies – This Is 40, Hobbit, Les Miserables, Zero Dark Thirty


Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey

Several good movies are out on Blu-ray and DVD this week. New DVD and Blu-ray movies include This Is 40 (review and giveaway coming soon), Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey (review | giveaway coming soon), Les Misérables, Zero Dark Thirty, and Thor: Legend of the Magical Hammer (animated). I’ve seen This Is 40 and The Hobbit, and recommend both. I also want to see Les Misérables and Zero Dark Thirty. For young kids, Thor: Legend of the Magical Hammer is probably a good choice.

  • Les Misérables

    Les Misérables is a deeply powerful film that’s rich with raw feeling, the grittiness of life in 19th-century France, and the conflict between right, wrong, and the concept of redemption. Les Misérables takes viewers on an emotionally exhausting journey as it follows ex-convict Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) after his release from prison. Valjean breaks parole, but he is granted a second chance by a kind bishop. He then moves from place to place throughout France, trying to live an honest life while ruthless policeman Javert (Russell Crowe) hunts him relentlessly. Valjean meets the broken-spirited Fantine (Anne Hathaway), promises to care for her daughter Cosette (Amanda Seyfried) as Fantine is about to die, and finds his own life completely changed as a result of that promise.

Zero Dark Thirty reunites the Oscar winning team of director-producer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) for the story of history’s greatest manhunt for the world’s most dangerous man.
  • Thor: Legend of the Magical Hammer
    Release date: March 19, 2013, 2013

    Thor is an over confident teen. He is also the son of a god, with a magical weapon. Thor and a handful of imperfect gods join forces against an evil queen and her army of giants.
