DVD releases for June 5, 2012
There are three DVD releases today that interest me, none of which I have seen but will be either buying or renting very soon.
Falling Skies: The Complete First Season
Falling Skies was created by Robert Rodat and produced by Steven Spielberg. The story is set six months into a world that has been devastated by an alien invasion. Noah Wyle stars as Tom Mason, a former Boston University history professor who becomes the second-in-command of the 2nd Massachusetts Militia Regiment, a group of civilians and fighters fleeing post-apocalyptic Boston.
Based on a series of novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs about a Civil War era veteran who is transported to Mars to aid in the wars that are existing on that planet. The movie did poorly at the box office and received mixed reviews. Many of the people I have talked to that have seen it did say it is good.
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
A sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth and also based on another Jules Verne novel and stars Dwayne Johnson, Michael Caine. A movie with a lot of special effects that is lighthearted and family friendly.
