DVD Roundup: Easy Pay Check edition

Bryan Cranston! Wooooo! Maybe the one reason to watch this otherwise bland looking romantic comedy. Cranston plays an over-protective father. James Franco plays a well meaning but goofy Silicon Valley billionaire who just so happens to be in a relationship with his daughter and, guess what, he's planning on proposing! Cue a film full of hilarious misunderstandings, excessive consumerism, and resolution of differences at the films end. Well, I don't know if that's going to happen, but Why Him?'s cast at least promises something watchable.

When I saw the cover for I.T., my initial thought was "Pierce Brosnan? Ergh... what?" We've not seen Brosnan in anything major for ages. Unfortunately, I.T. doesn't look like the film to put him back in the spotlight, as at the moment its scoring an abysmal 10% on Rotten Tomatoes, as the film resorts to stereotypical fist fighting to deal with an enemy hacker. Go figure.

I just want to remind you that there are some good films out at the moment. Get Out was amazing. Train to Busan is an excellent zombie movie. Wolf Cop is an underrated gem. Hell, if you've not seen Hitchcock's classic Psycho or even the original 1968 Night of the Living Dead, you need to get on it. Just don't indulge Syfy and their intense foray into schlock horror. Yeah, Lavalantula: its exactly what it sounds like. Or watch it, why do you care what I think. They've made over 200 of these movies, I don't think they'll be stopping any time soon.
