Logan’s Home Video Update provides more summer ...
With many sequels, prequels, reboots and homages hitting the screen this summer, Logan’s Home Video Update is here to help with suggestions to catch you up on what needs to be seen.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes (PG-13, 105 minutes- starring James Franco and Andy Serkis)
Since Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is one of the best reviewed and highest-grossing movies of the year so far, it is the perfect time to catch up on the first film in the rebooted Apes franchise. Rise is one of the best franchise reboots of the current reboot craze in Hollywood. It smartly infuses nods to the previous films in the series with a solid foundation to kick-off a new story arc. Andy Serkis’ motion capture performance was top-notch as usual.
Cars (G, 116 minutes- starring the voices of Owen Wilson and Paul Newman)
The upcoming Planes: Fire & Rescue, the newest film in the Cars franchise, comes out on Friday. As a refresher, check out or revisit the original movie in the series: Cars. With inspiring vocal performances and a well-developed universe, usual highlights for a Pixar film, Cars makes for a good family viewing.
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (PG, 115 minutes- starring Henry Thomas and Robert MacNaughton)
With yet another homage to this classic film (Earth to Echo) in theaters, it is time to pop in E.T. into the DVD player whether it is your first or hundredth viewing. Considered one of the best science fiction films ever made, E.T. is the perfect film to gather the family together and watch.
Hope you enjoy the recommendations. Check back for more Home Video Updates throughout the summer.
