Punch Drunk DVDs: 'Snatched', 'king Arthur: The Legend of the Sword', 'The Exception', And more!


Snatched stars cross-generational comedy icons Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer as a mother and daughter on an exotic South African vacation. Schumer plays a woman recently dumped by her boyfriend and on a hunt for excitement to help move past it. Her short sited adventuring soon leads to trouble, as she manages to get both her and her mother kidnapped.     

We Said: “If you enjoy Snatched at all it will be for one of two reasons, possibly both: you either really like Amy Schumer and her brand of comedy, or...well, okay that's the only reason. […] You wish [Schumer and Hawn] had better material to work with, but they make the best of it and find warmth and heart in some unexpected places.” Rating: 3 out of 5

Visionary director Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur reboot stars Charlie Hunnam as the legendary warrior, destined for greatness. When his ruthless uncle (Jude Law) seizes the thrown that’s rightfully his, Arthur goes on quest to gain back power and save his would be subjects with the aid of his legendary sword.

We Said: “The benefit of low expectations is that sometimes you are pleasantly surprised. […]  If you know [Director Guy] Ritchie and his signature speed-ramping, hard-knuckle style, then you definitely know this movie.” Rating: 3 out of 5

This WWII set period piece follows a German spy (Jai Courtney) on a mission to investigate the exiled former Kaiser Wilhelm II (Oscar winner Christopher Plummer). His mission grows even more complicated when he falls in love with the Kaiser’s maid (Lily James) who he suspects might be an undercover assassin.

We Said: “Overall, I did rather enjoy the film. Although it takes off on an incredibly rocky start, The Exception definitely picks up speed as it keeps going, and becomes a pretty engaging costume drama romance by its end.” Rating: 3 out of 5
