The Contractor/The Fan double feature Blu-ray release isn’t anything remarkable as these aren’t high-quality movies to begin with, however both films do have their moments and Wesley Snipes at least never felt like he was phoning it in.
I’m not exactly sure why Underworld: Blood Wars was necessary and especially with the knowledge a sixth one is in the works, but as much as I disliked the previous entries (finding Awakening tolerable apparently, though I can’t remember one damn thing from it), this is probably the worst of the bunch.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced the date and released artwork for the sci-fi action sequel, Underworld: Blood Wars starring Kate Beckinsale, Theo James and Charles Dance and directed by Anna Foerster (“Outlander”).

Me Before You is a film adaptation that attempted to capitalize on the massive success of The Fault in Our Stars not to mention it’s the latest rom-drama in the vein of a Nicolas Sparks adaption sans an overabundance of sappiness, though the heavy-handedness doesn’t quite mesh with some of the more levity of light-hearted scenes that came before.
It just doesn’t seem fair that it would seem subsequent seasons of “Game of Thrones” gets better but it’s happened… yet again. After a third season ripe with more violence, and blood, than the previous two probably combined (and that’s saying something), season four might take it up a notch, but it’s at least a lateral move.
“Game of Thrones”: The Complete Third Season is once more great culminating in one of the more memorable episodes in television history whether or not you’re a fan of George R.R. Martin’s novels (never read them myself). Now, as far as this “Limited Edition” release is concerned, it’s a tough call on the worthiness of a double dip; unless you can unload your current set.
The Imitation Game probably gets a solid “B+” for sheer entertainment value but a “D+” for accuracy, something that is an unforced error as the real life story of Turing, as well as co-inventor Gordon Welchman, is interesting enough without having to introduce non-existent plot points and changing around characters to fit the dramatic story the filmmakers wanted to tell. Even so, the acting still is top notched especially by Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley.
Underworld: Awakening actually isn’t that bad of a movie, albeit it’s not that great either. It’s probably on par with the previous movies just with slightly lower quality in terms of the cast (Bill Nighy even in a small role is irreplaceable). As it stands, the movie is really short and the visual effects, despite an upgrade in the budget, is mediocre at best, although the make-up and monster effects are alright in an old school kind of way.
