Halloween is officially behind us and November is here. The month is off to a good start with some interesting selections. The following are the must see Blu-ray/DVD, VOD and select theatrical under-the-radar latest releases.

THE GLASS CASTLE:

Woody Harrelson, Brie Larson and Naomi Watts star in the movie version of Jeannette Wall’s memoir of the same title. The story centers around Larson’s character Jeannette who recollects her poverty stricken childhood with her eccentric family. Harrelson plays the father, Rex, an alcoholic who paints a positive and hopeful life outlook for his children, amid their struggles to make ends meet. This film had a bit of a Captain Fantastic flare to it, but it’s filled with emotionally heavy moments. The characters are strong in their own right. Even though their situations may not be relatable to everyone, the struggles they each endure are relatable. This is a well acted movie, little long, but intriguing enough to keep you engaged throughout. Have some tissues ready, you might need them.

The Glass Castle is out now Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and On Demand

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
