Welcome 2018, lets hope you have a lot of great releases in store for us. The first week of January offers some of my personal favorites of 2017. So check out the following movies that are finally out on Blu-ray and VOD.

AMERICAN MADE:

This was probably my favorite movie of 2017. An incredible true story of Barry Seal, a real-life pilot turned drug runner turned government spy. Yes, this man ruled the 1980’s, and no very few knew about it. Tom Cruise is fantastic as Seal, he brings the Cruise charm, energy, but also an authentic side you don’t get to see in his films often. This is one of those films that’s so entertaining and insane from start to finish that you keep thinking if all of this could have possibly been real? A little tidbit, the drug dealer that Seal is a runner for is none other than Pablo Escobar. Just one of the many twists and crazy turns you’ll witness that you never knew about happening. If you liked movies like The Wolf of Wall Street and War Dogs, then this is a definite must-see movie for you.

American Made is out now on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD
