Punch Drunk DVDs: ‘Peter Rabbit’, ’12 Strong’, ‘Winchester’, And More!


The classic story of Peter Rabbit finally makes its way to
the big screen in this larger than life family adventure. The film follows
Peter (James Cordon) and his three sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-Tail (Daisy
Ridley, Elizabeth Debicki, and Margot Robbie), who want nothing more than to
relax and enjoy the vegetables of Mr. McGragor’s garden. Unfortunately for
them, the McGregors, particularly their adult son Joe (Domhnall Gleeson), are
fed up with the rabbits antics, and will stop at nothing to get them off their
land. An all out battle soon breaks out, as Peter tries time and time again to
outsmart the McGregors.  
We Said: “I can honestly say
I’m looking forward to July when this movie inevitably hits Netflix and I have
to watch it 357 times over a span of three weekends thanks to my kids, or at
least I’m looking forward to the first day before it wears out it’s welcome on
me.” Rating: 4.25 out of 5

Set in the early days of the war in Afghanistan, 12
follows Capt. Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth )and his  Special Forces team as they develop an uneasy
partnership with the Northern Alliance to take down the Taliban and its
al-Qaida allies.

We Said: “The [film’s]
only mission is to show the war in Afghanistan the way we imagine it to be,
just good guys killing bad guys, like it used to be in war movies all the time
before we started asking questions.” Rating:
3 out of 5
