Disney is releasing Pinocchio this week. You know how Disney works. They like to pull many of their movies from retailers and store them in their magical vault. Then they release the titles again many years later. This time around, Disney is releasing Pinocchio in stores. And for the first time ever, Pinocchio is available in Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere. That means you can cut the cord and watch the film anywhere without strings. Cool, right? I also like the digital HD option because I don’t have to find a place to store the film. After a couple of decades of collecting DVDs and Blu-rays, I have run out of space on my bookcase. BTW, I received a movie kit for writing this review. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.
HBO is releasing season two of Ballers on Blu-ray and DVD next week. Ballers is about a former football player who now works as a money manager for football players. I love this series. It has a football feel, yet it rarely show athletes playing football. Ballers is more about the characters instead of the game of football. The characters grow on you and you become vested in their lives. Ballers: S2 is available now on digital HD, and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on January 31st. Note: the series is rated TV-MA for nudity and sex scenes.
