Looks like there are a handful of new DVD and Blu-ray movies this week. They include Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Daisy Ridley, John Boyega), Identicals (review | Lachlan Nieboer, Nora-Jane Noone), #Horror (Chloe Sevigny, Timothy Hutton), Mojave (Mark Wahlberg, Oscar Isaac), and The Hallow (Joseph Mawle, Bojana Novakovic). I saw the new Star Wars movie at the theater. I loved it and can’t wait to see the film again. Continue reading for a summary of the new Blu-rays and DVDs for this week.
I watched Identicals (Samuel Goldwyn Films and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment) recently. The R-rated movie is about a world where Identicals exist. Identicals are people who look like you, walk like you, and talk like you, but they live different, better lives. In the story, people upgrade their lives by replacing their doppelgangers. I like the idea behind the story, but the ending was on the confusing side. It’s what I call an artsy fartsy ending. Identicals is available now video on demand, and will be available on DVD on Tuesday (April 5th).
