Only two new Blu-ray and DVD movies this week: Despicable Me 2 (review | giveaway) and Fast & Furious 6 (review). We’ve seen both of these films at the theater and loved them. Fast 6 stars the late Paul Walker, and D2 is great for kids and families. Read on for a summary of the new DVD releases.
I have an awesome giveaway today. I’m giving a Blu-ray film on my movie blog.

BTW, a Blu-ray movie is an excellent gift for the movie lover in your family.
This Fourth of July weekend, it looks like it will be a battle between The Lone Ranger (Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer) and Despicable Me 2 (Steve Carell). I’ve seen both films. I enjoyed them both, but I think Despicable Me 2 will win out at the box office. It has a broader appeal than The Lone Ranger. Other new movies this week include Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain, A Girl and a Gun, Hammer of the Gods, Just Like a Woman (Sienna Miller), Stuck in Love (Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Connelly, Kristen Bell), and The Way Way Back (Steve Carell, Toni Collette). Read on for a summary of the new movie releases for this week.
The kids and I saw an early screening of Despicable Me 2 last week. We loved the film and thought it was hilarious. Gru is funny, the girls are still adorable, and the Minions made everyone laugh through out the story. The new animated movie is about 98 minutes long and is rated PG. Despicable Me 2 (Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment) opens today at a theater near you.
