[Press Release] Burbank, CA, January 28, 2016 – Experience one of the greatest true stories ever told when “In the Heart of the Sea” arrives onto Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD. Oscar® winner Ron Howard (“A Beautiful Mind”) directs the action adventure “In the Heart of the Sea,” based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex, a New England whaling ship.
Christmas is coming and so is Star Wars, so the timing for In the Heart of the Sea could have been better – it was the only thing that came out this week (at least in Lethbridge). This isn’t normally the type of movie I’d spend time and money on, but I’m glad I went anyway. Fair warning, this review might be a bit more spoilery than usual, but if you don’t at least have a passing knowledge of what Moby Dick is about, you kind-of deserve what you get, spoiler-wise.
From New Line Cinema and Horrible Bosses writers Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley comes the brand new Vacation film starring Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Chevy Chase, Leslie Mann, Skyler Gisondo, Steele Stebbins and Chris Hemsworth. The film is available on Blu-ray now!
It’s been 20 years or so since I saw the original Vacation and I have to admit, I wasn’t a fan. I just didn’t find Chevy Chase funny (still don’t). But movies have changed a lot since then and so have I. Seeing this Vacation makes me want to go back and see it again in case I missed something. I went into this just for the Chris Hemsworth scene (you know the one I mean) but I ended up liking the whole thing.
