Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis continues his weekly look at what treats are in-store this week on Blu-ray in the US in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, hit teen-comedy The Duff, time-travelling with Project Almanac and Brian Yuzna’s Society…
Kingsman: The Secret Service
ORDER KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE VIA AMAZON
Both a critical and public darling, Matthew Vaughn’s hugely exciting spy adventure has been a massive success across the globe as well as in the UK and US. Colin Firth, Taron Edgerton, Mark Strong and Michael Caine are part of an elite British espionage team trying to track down the evil Samuel L. Jackson.
ORDER THE DUFF VIA AMAZON
A decent-sized hit on its release earlier this year, The Duff joins the ranks of Mean Girls and Easy A as one of the best teenage comedies of the last few years. Mae Whitman is superb as the titular Duff alongside Bella Thorne, Robbie Amell and Community’s Ken Jeong.
ORDER PROJECT ALMANAC VIA AMAZON
Another teen entry this week, this time with a group of teenage friends who discover the science behind time travel and set about changing things in their lives but without any regard for what their actions will mean for their future.
One of the greatest (and slimiest) cult classics of all time, Brian Yunza’s horror-satire is finally given the Blu-ray treatment by those awesome people at Arrow Films. Baywatch star Billy Warlock gets more than he bargained for when he suspects his neighbours aren’t all what they seem, particularly when they throw a party. A new transfer and lots of bonus feature goodness accompany the film, which still packs a punch over 25 years later.
