This week’s home video releases features no “Buy It!” recommendations but nostalgia rules as TV shows from the 70s and 90s that were rebooted for the big screen find their way back to the small screen. In addition to CHiPs and Power Rangers, there’s a Trainspotting sequel and 5 other movies for you to choose from. Here is what Movie Hot Take thinks you should buy, rent, stream and skip for the week of June 27th:
The Autopsy of Jane Doe –NO REVIEW–
Super Simple Synopsis: A father and son team of coroners try to figure out what the cause of death of a recent unidentified body is but the real mystery becomes is she actually dead?
The IFC Films release promises to be a supernatural thriller with an eerie premise and Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch in the role of father and son.
CHiPs —MOVIE HOT TAKE REVIEW—
Super Simple Synopsis: A 70s episodic cop drama reimagined as a lowbrow comedy with plenty of violent action.

Power Rangers —MOVIE HOT TAKE REVIEW—
Super Simple Synopsis: A 90s kids show reimagined as a “What if The Breakfast Club had superpowers?” exercise.
“I SAID GIVE ME ALL THE NOSTALGIA!!!”
The Belko Experiment —MOVIE HOT TAKE REVIEW—
Super Simple Synopsis: The result of combining Office Space with Battle Royale.
The premise is interesting enough to overcome some poor execution.
Money –NO REVIEW–
Super Simple Synopsis: The tagline of Wall Street but the feel of a movie destined for the USA Network.
Can a young, up and coming cast overcome a generic plot of double and triple crossing? You can only find out if you watch, right?

Super Simple Synopsis: The sequel to Trainspotting, 20 years later.
You liked the original.
Absolutely Anything –NO REVIEW–
Super Simple Synopsis: Aliens give a guy the power to make any wish come true. If he uses those wishes for good, Earth is spared. If not, Earth will be destroyed.
The original title was Don’t Make Me Watch This, I’ll Give You Absolutely Anything.
Grey Lady –NO REVIEW–
Super Simple Synopsis: There once was a Boston Detective who went to Nantucket whose… ummmm… never mind.
How can you trust a film made in 2014 but not released until 2017?
