Share news for movie Fans: DVD films of this week - June 24 2014

There are many wonderful DVD movies last week. what kind of DVD will come out? Are you a movie fan like me,I have been searched online but not sure which is the best one. so, the following list are the movies that audiences will be able to enjoy this weekend. 
After a great movie “Endless Love” , here are list of three good evaluation movie you can have a see:   
1.300: Rise of an Empire    June 24 
"300: Rise of an Empire" - The Warner Bros sequel is the biggest release of the week. The movie tells the story of Greek general Themistokles who leads the charge against invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes and Artemisia. The film, which was directed by Noam Muro, scored mixed reviews and grossed $106 million at the box office. The sequel was not as successful as the 2006 actioner which made $210 million. The reason for a lackluster box office was the result of little buzz and no hype. However "Rise of an Empire" has a chance of gaining some traction on DVD and on demand as it is the perfect summer blockbuster that audiences are into at the moment. It also serves as an option for those moviegoers who are not in mood to go to the movies. 

2. Winter's Tale              June 24 
"Winter's Tale" - Warner Bros will also release the fantasy tale starring Colin Firth, Jessica Brown Findlay, Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly. Directed by Akiva Goldsman, the film tells the story of a burglar who falls in love with an heiress as she dies in his arms. When he learns that he has the gift of reincarnation, he sets out on a journey to save her.  The movie was released on Feb 14 in hopes that it would be the perfect date movie but the results were poor. The movie not only received negative reviews but only made $12 million after having opened to $7 million. Warner Bros will attempt to regain some of its losses on DVD and try to attract females who have been very active movie goers during the summer season. The release is good counter programming especially with the lack of female driven films and with none coming out in the next few weeks, "Winter's Tale" could easily recuperate some of the money it lost at the box office earlier this year.  

3. Repentence     June 24 

"Repentence" - This Lionsgate drama was one of the most ignored releases in February. The movie, starring Forest Whitaker and Anthony Mackie, tells the story of a successful author and spiritual advisor who takes on a troubled man as a client, completely unaware that the man's fixation on his mother's death will soon put his life in jeopardy. The movie opened in 152 theaters and ended its run making only $1.1 million. The drama is likely to attract Whitaker fans but at a time when movie goers are looking for a fun action film, this movie is unlikely to get any more fandom. 

Hope this guide help you choose your favorite one and enjoy it with your family. Do you agree with me? Movies make our life colorful!

Nice movie review: Maleficent- “do not miss it!”

A fairy who was deceived by human in pursuit of his dream of living in a castle – to be a king. Soon the King and the Queen had their first baby. During the grand christening, everyone in the kingdom was invited including the pixies when except for Maleficent. Unknowingly Maleficent came to join with the celebration and gave her gift to the Princess – she’ll prick her finger in a spindle before the sun set at the age of 16 and she will fall asleep just like death. Nothing can ever awake her except for a true love’s kiss. This curse can never be retracted even by the strongest force on Earth. Princess Aurora was then was left by the King and Queen in the custody of the pixies confident that the curse will never happen.

As Princess Aurora grows, Maleficent became fond of Princess Aurora that she loved her as if her own daughter however; no matter how she tried to revert back the curse; she’s always a failure. True enough, no force can ever take it back.

The time has come and the oath has happened. A prince charming came and kissed Princess Aurora but she never woke up. With all regret and sorrow, Maleficent kissed the Princess and she awoke – the kiss of a true love.

Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 is better than Apple's MacBook Air -- here's 5 reasons why

Nowadays, if you buy a brand new laptop, it is hard to buy an absolute lemon. Unless you scrape the bottom of the barrel at Best Buy and get some god-awful $200 underpowered computer, you should be fine. Hell, even that inexpensive computer may meet some people's needs. However, some of us spend many hours of each day on a computer, so it makes sense to invest in something great. If you are reading BetaNews, I'm sure you fall into that category. If you ask me which computer to buy, I would recommend many (depending on budget), but two stand out among the rest. 

The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and Apple MacBook Air are great balances between portability, power and cost. Yes, there are more powerful computers, but they are often very heavy and have terrible battery life. Portability cannot be underestimated when it comes to a laptop's value and both of these machines are super thin and light. Last month, my colleague Mihaita pondered the question of which was better based on specs alone. However, as someone who has used both, hands-on, for long periods of time, I am ready to definitively tell you that the Surface Pro 3 is better. Do you agree?

1.Screen Quality 

The MacBook Air 13.3-inch (the model I am using for comparison) uses a washed-out non-IPS display that simply looks horrendous by today's standards. It uses a 1,440 by 900 resolution that makes pixels easily visible. Apple usually makes great hardware, but the screen on the Air is simply not up to its normal standards. It also uses a 16:10 aspect ratio that just is not ideal for surfing the web. 

The Surface Pro 3 however, offers a gorgeous 2,160 x 1,440 resolution display with vibrant colors that hides pixels from the average eye. It even uses a 3:2 aspect ratio which is better suited for surfing the web. I smile every time I look at the beautiful display on the SP3. 


Speaking of the screen, the Surface Pro 3 is also a touch-screen hybrid device that also serves as a tablet. This essentially kills two birds with one stone. Apple users will have to buy a MacBook Air and an iPad for the same experience found on SP3. This is a huge inconvenience for travelers that must pack two devices, two chargers and worry about keeping data synced between the two. 

Even in laptop mode, the touch screen comes in handy when sitting at a desk or table. Many people find a touchscreen on a laptop to be cumbersome and not ideal. True, you wouldn't want to use the touch screen exclusively at a desk, but having the option is better than not having it, and you'd be surprised at how many times I reach out and touch the SP3 display. The stylus is just icing on the cake. 


The Surface Pro 3 without the Touch Keyboard attachment weighs 1.76 pounds. With it, it weighs 2.41 pounds. The 13.3-inch MBA? 2.96 pounds. Pretty much, Apple's machine weighs a half pound more -- that is significant.
But hold on, an iPad Air weighs 1 pound. So, to get a similar experience to the SP3, an Apple user would have to carry a MBA and iPad Air, which would weigh almost 4 pounds. This means your backpack or briefcase will weigh a pound and a half more with Apple's product. The Surface Pro 3 is so light, that I often have to check my backpack to see if I forgot it. 

4.More (and Better) Software 

I love both OS X and Windows 8.1. However, Windows has the edge, because it has more quality apps and programs. To take it a step further, programs are better too. Don't get me wrong, there is some fine software for Apple's OS, but for someone wanting to get work done, on the go, it is no comparison. Office 2013 is far superior to Office 2011. 

But wait you say, that's not fair because Microsoft makes Office, right? OK, fair enough. I encourage you to read this article that lists suggested apps and programs for the Surface Pro 3. You will see many selections, not only from Microsoft, that blows away the offerings on OS X. 


Some people will say the MacBook Air is less expensive, but that is debatable. A Surface Pro 3 with an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD and Type Cover would cost $1430. A 13.3-inch MacBook Air in the same configuration would cost $1300. 

So, the MacBook Air is cheaper right? Not so fast. You still do not have a tablet. To get the same features from Apple you also have to buy an iPad Air at $499. This means going Apple would cost an extra $370 and you would be juggling two device -- ouch! 

Overall, both the Surface Pro 3 and MacBook Air are great laptops -- the Surface Pro 3 is simply better. For the money, you are getting more features and access to more apps and programs. Even though the MBA overall is solid, the fact that Apple in 2014 can sell its customers a laptop without a touchscreen is beyond me. Not to mention, the display quality is so poor in comparison to the Surface Pro 3, that it is hard to believe they are both being sold in the same year. As someone who has spent a lot of time with the Surface Pro 3, I can assure you it is the real deal. 

The MacBook Air had a long run as the king of thin and laptops, but now it must be said -- All hail the new king, Surface Pro 3!

‘Jump Street’, ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’ at top 2 spots

Sequels ruled the cineplex this weekend as young cops and a young dragon duked it out at the box office. 

"22 Jump Street”,  the follow-up to the 2012 comedy, scored a surprise win at theaters with $60 million, according to studio estimates from box office crunchers Rentrak. 

The debut exceeded the projections of analysts, who expected a neck-and-neck race between "Street"and the animated comedy "How to Train Your Dragon 2."Both were expected to collect about $50 million. 

But audiences were in the mood for a laugh. "Neighbors"marked the last broad comedy of summer, and that came out more than a month ago. Since then, moviegoers got a steady diet of action and drama. 

"Street"hit the funny bone of critics and fans, earning an 83 percent approval rating from critics, says Rotten Tomatoes. According to Cinemascore, audiences gave it a collective A-minus. 

"Dragon"was no slouch, taking second place. And it could have legs, thanks to reviews and word of mouth. About 92 percent of critics gave that movie a thumbs-up, while audiences gave it a straight A. 

Both films also ended the two-week run of original films ruling the box office. Along with "Maleficent,"the teen drama "Fault in Our Stars"topped theaters. Still, analysts say, studios did sequels right this time. 

"Hollywood may be mostly out of ideas,"says Reagan Sulewski, analyst for Box Office Prophets. "But the ideas they’re reusing, at least this weekend, are pretty strong.” 

"Maleficent"was third with $19 million, followed by the Tom Cruise action film "Edge of Tomorrow"with $16.2 million. "Stars"rounded out the top five with $15.7 million.

The Rover review – an Australian road movie that runs out of road

Robert Pattinson proves his acting chops in David Michod's mysterious follow-up to Animal Kingdom – it's just a shame it squanders its early promise. 

It’s time to put away those Robert Pattinson jokes – the kid can act. He showed more attachment to the elephant in Water for Elephants than co-star Reese Witherspoon, but then he probably knew better how it felt:Twilight turned him into the most gawped at mammal on the planet. He cut like a blade through the first film, cheekbones set to stun, as pale as a rock star in recovery, summoning a palpable sense of threat. 

The series emasculated Edward as it wore on, shoving him to the side of the action, while Bella grew increasingly impatient – it was the only vampire series in which the vampires were afraid of the virgins, and exploited Pattinson’s greatest flaw as an actor: his passivity. He was coolly dissipated in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, as a megastar essaying the end of the world in blacked-out limo shades, but the film, and the role, both stayed well within the confines of the comfortably numb. In his new film, The Rover, Pattinson tries a different tack in his pursuit of a world seen without yellow contact lenses: he acts his socks off. 

When we first see him, he is face down in the Australian outback, bleeding out into the dirt. He’s been abandoned by his brother (Scoot McNairy), who heads up a gang of thugs making their getaway in a truck, with another member bleeding in the back. What they have done, or even who they are, is never made clear. The film, directed by David Michod, is set “10 years after the collapse”, in a future where resources like petrol and water have gone much the same place as the world’s reserves of narrative exposition. 

The whole thing is told in the mythic-elliptic style first pioneered in the spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leone and later retrofitted as pulp by George Miller in the Mad Max films, where the post-apocalypse means never having to explain yourself. This movie gives nothing up. 

So we never find out the exact circumstances that led to Pattinson being left for dead, or why he is speaking in a southern white trash accent, while everyone else speaks Australian, or why he is being hunted by squadron of American soldiers. Did he desert? What is important is that he crosses paths with Guy Pearce, about whom we know even less, except that a) he never cracks a smile, b) he looks pissed even before the gang make off with his car, and c) he wants it back. That’s how mythic he is: his character is carved out in the dust cloud left by his actions. He’s the Man With No Ride Home.

Film Review: ‘Burning Blue’

Top guns in love struggle against institutional homophobia in a tone-deaf melodrama well past its sell-by date. 

When Quentin Tarantino riffed on the homoeroticism of “Top Gun” in his famous cameo from the otherwise forgotten 1994 indie “Sleep With Me,” little could he have known that, two decades later, the LGBT community would get a fighter-jock opus to call its very own. Optimistically dubbed “Brokeback Top Gun” in some quarters of the Internet, writer-director DMW Greer’s “Burning Blue” certainly harbors such outsized ambitions, but they’re poorly matched by Greer’s leaden direction and a didactic screenplay about the tortured lives of military personnel living in the shadow of President Clinton’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. Bearing a distinctly musty odor confirmed by its 2011 copyright date, this day-and-date Lionsgate pickup never achieves dramatic liftoff.

Poorly concealing its origins as a stage play (first produced in London in 1995), “Burning Blue” unfolds mostly as a series of stilted, talky scenes set in and around a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier where a couple of hotshot pilots find themselves getting too close for Uncle Sam’s comfort, in and out of the cockpit. To all outward appearances, Lts. Daniel Lynch (Trent Ford) and Matthew Blackwood (Rob Mayes) are a couple of straightlaced — and straight — young recruits with loyal wives/girlfriends waiting for them at home and, if they play their cards right, a couple of highly competitive slots at the Navy’s Test Pilot School. But all those smoldering glances Lynch keeps trading with the guitar-strumming Blackwood in their shared barracks come to a head during a night of shore leave in New York that begins like “On the Town” and ends up somewhere close to “Cruising.”

Greer, who was a Navy chopper pilot himself, certainly deserves credit for wanting to shine a light on the difficult lives of LGBT servicemen working in a climate of thinly veiled persecution — a situation, an end title card informs, that has only marginally improved since the repeal of “Don’t ask, don’t tell” in 2011. But good intentions don’t count for much in art, especially when Greer muddies his own with a fairly ludicrous subplot involving a dogged NCIS investigator who suspects that a “gay cult” may be responsible for three seemingly unrelated fatal flight accidents (the implication being that a gay soldier would rather crash and burn than risk being outed).

It doesn’t help matters that Ford and Mayes both seem to have been chiseled from the same block of wood, with no fairy godmother around to turn them into real live boys. Even if they did, they’d still have to speak or react to dialogue like “Taxpayers get nervous if they start hearing their warriors sniveling” and “We are warriors paid to defend the country, not spill our guts and frolic in the daisies” — a mission that might have stymied even Laurence Olivier.

Given its subject matter, “Burning Blue” turns out to be a surprisingly chaste affair, though nearly all of the actors — even those playing allegedly straight characters — seem to have been directed by Greer to leer at one another with the intensity of sex-starved Victorian maidens. Of the principals, only William Lee Scott shows signs of a real personality as a coy Southern pilot who doesn’t ask or tell, but always seems to be one step ahead of the game. Staged with a complete lack of visual energy, the pic manages to make even its occasional shots of fighter jets in flight about as exciting as a minivan rounding a corner.
