Rotten Tomatoes rating: 15%
Bruce Willis is back in action – mind-blowing, heart-stopping, rip-roaring action – as John McClane, the heroic New York cop with a knack for being in the wrong place at the right time. John’s latest predicament takes him all the way to Russia to track down his estranged son, Jack (Jai Courtney), who has been imprisoned in Moscow. But the mission takes a deadly turn as father and son must join forces to thwart a nuclear weapons heist that could trigger World War III! This movie comes in both a two disc BluRay/DVD set and a single disc DVD set. The critics hated this movie, but let’s be honest…this movie isn’t supposed to be a critical darling. This is supposed to be about John McClane and his son acting like impossible white men going to Russia and blowing shit up. If you’re down with that, this is the movie for you.
Warm Bodies (PG-13)
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 80%
After a zombie epidemic, R (a zombie played by Nicholas Hoult) rescues Julie (a human survivor played by Teresa Palmer) from a zombie attack. The two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human – setting off a chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world. This movie comes in both a single disc BluRay and a single disc DVD version. This is actually a sweet movie, and it’s a completely different take on the zombie genre. I recommend checking it out.

The mystery deepens for the remaining survivors of the massive alien invasion as Falling Skies returns for its second season with mysterious new creatures. Three months have passed since former college professor, father of three and unlikely leader of the civilian resistance group Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) went willingly with the aliens on one of their ships to free his son and learn their plans. Nobody has seen or heard anything from him during this time, and his absence has taken its toll on his sons.
