The boys and their guns are back in 22 Jump Street.

Jonah Hill (Moneyball) and Channing Tatum (Haywire) return to idiotic action in the comedy action flick 22 Jump Street, a sequel to you-know-what from 2012…

After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership.  Now they don’t have to just crack the case – they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshman to real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them. »

Blu-ray Release Date: Oct. 14, 2014

Price: Blu-ray $29.95

Studio: Twilight Time

Beware the glob that is The Blob!

The 1988 gooey horror movie The Blob is a remake of the equally gelatinous 1958 film of the same name which starred a young Steve McQueen.

The new version of the movie follows the same general plot of the original: A deadly mucilaginous ( a Google thesaurus function word) creature from another planet (possibly…) makes its way to Earth, where it makes its way into a small town, envelops everything in its path and grows at a startling rate. A pair of teenagers (Entourage’s Kevin Dillon and the Saw franchise’s Shawnee Smith) try in vain to warn the townsfolk, who refuse to take them seriously.

Co-written by Frank Darabont in one of his earliest projects prior to The Shawshank Redemption and Walking Dead fame, the movie also stars Donovan Leitch, Jeffrey DeMunn (another Walking Deader), Bill Moseley, »

Of particular interest to him is a distraught Nasa astronaut (Scott Wilson) who aborted his mission during the final countdown.
