I Feel Pretty (Blu-ray Review)

Amy Schumer scored herself a nice little hit before the summer season snapped open and turn the competition to dust with I Feel Pretty. Consider me a fan of the comedian’s cinematic output thus far. I was a huge fan of Trainwreck and while it was pretty average, I didn’t mind Snatched last summer. I Feel Pretty seemed to stir up controversy merely based on its trailer, but I guess I’m a jerk because I thought it looked like it was going to be a lot of fun. Plus, knowing Schumer, it probably wasn’t going to be exactly what the surface was telling us. Universal is bringing the comedy to home video on July 17th, skipping 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray and just settling for a standard Blu-ray combo pack. If you’re looking to check it out or a fan ready to snatch it up, you can order yourself a copy from the Amazon link at the bottom following the review.

Isle of Dogs (Blu-ray Review)

Wes Anderson has built a filmography full of work that could never be mistaken for another filmmaker, and he’s managed to take ambitious chances as well. That said, Isle of Dogs feels like a notable departure from Anderson’s comfort zone. Beyond being another stop-motion animated effort, the use of Japanese culture and a healthy dose of political commentary provide the film with a larger scope. What could have been a simple animated delight focused on the story of a boy and his dog becomes much more layered. Now the film is available on Blu-ray for all to see.
