It’s the lightest week in some time on the home video front highlighted by the third biggest box office film of 2017 (so far) in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Only 2 others will join GotG2 this week, so let’s get right to what to buy, rent, stream and skip for the week of August 22nd:
Buy It! (Or Rent It!)
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 —MOVIE HOT TAKE REVIEW—
Super Simple Synopsis: The sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy.
You loved the first one and need a complete set.
You liked the first one and somehow didn’t go see the second one in theaters OR you did and just want to see it again but don’t need to own a copy for all eternity AND you’re probably a little bit cheap. Just sayin’.
Showing Roots –NO REVIEW–
Super Simple Synopsis: It’s about an attempt to integrate a small Southern town after the airing of the miniseries Roots but it’s also about hair.
The film features an excellent cast and an interesting plot.
Scales: Mermaids are Real –NO REVIEW–
Super Simple Synopsis: A young girl learns she is destined to turn into a mermaid and must say goodbye to her family and friends while being chased by hunters.
Unless you’re an adolescent girl, I think this one should stay off of your television.
