BREAKING BAD (SEASON 2)
Season 2 of Breaking Bad opens with a disturbing but seemingly innocuous shot of a charred stuffed bear floating in a pool, and its relevance is not made clear until the season finale. When provided full context, the remains of that bear is a brutal, in-your-face emblem of the destructive consequences of Walt’s moral decay. Consider the characters we met in Season 1: Walt a mild-mannered chemistry teacher, and Jesse an obnoxious, irresponsible punk. Season 2 finds these characters reaching emotionally devastating new highs and lows, and experiencing those moments with them is as compelling as it is stressful. Between this season and its last, Breaking Bad has solidified itself as one of the greatest shows ever made. If you aren’t watching it, you are missing the best that serialized drama has to offer.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD & Blu-ray – Cast & crew commentaries, deleted scenes, Inside Breaking Bad – 13 Featurettes About The Making of Each Episode, Walt’s Warning Featurette, “Negro y Azul” Music Video, “Better Call Saul” Commercial, 11 Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes, Cop Talk with Dean Norris, a gag reel, 6 Breaking Bad Original Webisodes, Season 3 Sneak Peek, and Vince Gilligan’s Photo Gallery.

Armored

Somebody over at Sony is surely going to get spanked today. At some point yesterday afternoon, Nimrod Antal’s Armored — a film which is still in theaters (and distributed by Sony Pictures) — was released on the Playstation Store in both Playstation 3 and PSP formats. Worst of all, they didn’t even make any money from the blunder — the film was free to download for any sharp-eyed PS3 owner. It was pulled after about five hours, but in that time it was downloaded by many.

Sony has yet to comment on the blunder, but I think it could hint at some of their future plans for digital offerings. Specifically, it reminds me of their plan to offer Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs on Sony televisions and Blu-ray players a month before it’s supposed to hit DVD and Blu-ray.

Armored Movie Trailer 2

Armored

Screen Gems has released a second trailer for the action-thriller Armored. This film looks like one of those middle of the road action movies you don’t hear about before or after it hits theaters – it just seems to float in and out of existence. But since director Nimrod Antal is signed up to direct Predators, the Robert Rodriguez-produced Predator reboot for 20th Century Fox, everyone is taking a bit more notice.

The film tells the story of “a crew of officers at an armored transport security firm risk their lives when they embark on the ultimate heist….against their own company. Armed with a seemingly fool-proof plan, the men plan on making off with a fortune with harm to none. But when an unexpected witness interferes, the plan quickly unravels and all bets are off.” Starring Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Skeet Ulrich, Amaury Nolasco, Andre Jamal Kinney, Milo Ventimiglia, Fred Ward and Columbus Short. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Armored Movie Trailer

Screen Gems has released the first trailer for Nimrod Antal‘s heist thriller Armored. To be completely honest with you, I haven’t really heard much about this film before the trailer was just released on Apple. And for good reason, this film looks like one of those middle of the road action movies you don’t hear about before or after it hits theaters – it just seems to float in and out of existence.

The movie tells the story of “a crew of officers at an armored transport security firm risk their lives when they embark on the ultimate heist….against their own company.  Armed with a seemingly fool-proof plan, the men plan on making off with a fortune with harm to none.  But when an unexpected witness interferes, the plan quickly unravels and all bets are off.”

The film stars Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Skeet Ulrich, Amaury Nolasco, Andre Jamal Kinney, Milo Ventimiglia, Fred Ward and Columbus Short. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
