New Movies on Blu-ray/DVD
Pacific Rim: Uprising
John Boyega plays the son of Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost in this wild sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 kaiju monster mash. Although it may be completely silly, the fights between the giant robots and giant monsters are still just as earth shattering as they were in the first one, with more in broad daylight and with a youthful vitality that takes its cues from Tony Scott’s Top Gun.

Oscar winning director Steven Soderbergh shot this psychological thriller entirely on an iPhone 7 Plus. The story of a woman who may or may not be imagining her stalker stars Claire Foy, Joshua Leonard, Jay Pharoah, Juno Temple, Aimee Mullins and Amy Irving.
The Death of Stalin
This outrageous satire from Armando Iannucci (In the Loop, Veep) stars Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Rupert Friend, Jason Isaacs, Michael Palin, Andrea Riseborough and Jeffrey Tambor. The DVD release presents a comic look at the troubles that sprang from the death of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin in 1953.

Set in colonial Sydney, Australia during the early 19th century, this underrated Alfred Hitchcock thriller stars Ingrid Bergman and Joseph Cotten, and was filmed in a series of long 10-minute takes.
Night of the Lepus
Scream Factory issues this insane 1972 horror film about giant mutated rabbits that ravage a rural area over several days. The film features Dr. McCoy himself, DeForest Kelley in a typically gruff performance, as well as some oh-so-noticable miniatures in order to make the pre-CGI rabbits look large.
