I’ve Got The Blus – New Blu-ray & DVD Releases 6/17/2014 – Almost Human, 13 Sins, Joe, The Monkey’s Paw, Joy Ride 3, The Machine, Adjust Your Tracking

ivegottheblus

Since Kevin has done many things for Liberaldead.com, I thought I would help him out a little bit, and share this new weekly Blu-ray and DVD roundup with him on his site as well. Keep in mind that this will only be a compilation of releases that I have been sent for coverage. On occasion, if a major release is coming out that I haven’t been provided, I reserve the right to include it as well. Because, as much as I like to think that I am sent practically anything my little black heart desires, every now and then a PR firm runs out of copies before they get to my name. Anyway, these are what I would refer to as “noteworthy” Blu-ray and DVD releases for the week of 6/17/2014.

Synopsis:

The original 3D computer-animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as The Special, the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world.
