The middle of March delivers some fantastic movie releases on Blu-ray/DVD and theatrically. Here are the top must-see movie and TV show releases for week of March 13. Some are fan favorites and other are under-the-radar picks. A little bit of everything for everyone.

I, TONYA

There was a reason why Margot Robbie received an Oscar nomination (should have won) for her portrayal of Tonya Harding in I, Tonya. She was fantastic. It’s not easy by any means to portray the loose cannon that Tonya Harding was in her skating prime, but Robbie nails every aspect of it. Allison Janney managed to secure an Oscar for playing Harding’s imposing mother in the movie. This is as well acted film as you’ll see.

The plot is pretty fascinating in itself. It’s told from Tonya’s perspective, no Nancy Kerrigan doesn’t get her side, but she’s by no means excluded from the film. Interestingly it’s a movie that will make you laugh and gasp in awe at the antics that Harding creates. I felt it was a entertaining and detailed look at Hardings life and the world famous incident with Nancy.

I, Tonya delivers in all fronts. Well directed, acted and presented. It’s a shame it didn’t earn a Oscar nomination for Best Picture, as it certainly deserved it. This is a must-see see movie Kudos to Robbie for many of the skillfully executed skating stunts.

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).
