First up, we must apologize for not updating the new DVD releases last week so we’re doing a bumper update this week and boy is it an update. Let’s start of with the biggest addition to the Netflix DVD release. Game of Thrones. For Netflixers this will be the only opportunity for you to catch up with the latest season as it certainly isn’t going to Netflix streaming anytime soon. Season 5 stepped up the ante and was by and far the best season of the biggest show on television. With season 6 just around the corner, now’s the time to watch it.
The first of two Russell Crowe movies featured on this list of new DVD releases, Fathers and Daughters is a powerful drama about a widowed father and famed author who retreats to a mental health center to cope with his loss. His daughter, years later, falls for an aspiring author. This movie received mixed reviews by critics, but the majority of audiences enjoyed this film. Perhaps not worth buying on DVD, it is still worth the rental cost at the local Redbox and was released on August 9.
