This Week’s Must See Movie Releases (Week of Feb 6)

ONLY THE BRAVE:

Brave individuals that protect our communities and neighborhoods that are first in line to run into fiery danger in order to save lives, these men and women that I speak of are our firefighters. Only The Brave tells a story of a group of elite firefighters named “Hotshots” brought together to combat intense wildfires. This is an inspiring true story of very brave people who put everything on the line to protect others.

A terrific ensemble cast consisting of Josh Brolin, Miles Teller and Jeff Bridges lead the way. It’s the kind of movie that will make you feel sadness and pride. These are important stories that sometimes get overlooked, but luckily director Joseph Kosinski brings it to life. The story is ultimately about the camaraderie, brotherhood and sacrifices of these special individuals. The scenes are tension packed and very intense. Great performances and a stellar story. Undoubtedly this is a must see movie.

  • Deleted Scenes

Must See Movie Releases Of The Week

The last week of January leads into February on this week’s must see movie release calendar. This week’s Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and theatrical releases offer some under-the-radar surprises.

LAST FLAG FLYING:

Forget anything about Steve Carell being a comedic actor, after yet another terrific dramatic performance from him alongside the equally fantastic Bryan Cranston and Laurence Fishburne in Last Flag Flying. The film is about three friends reuniting 30 years after serving together in Vietnam in support of one of their sons being killed in the Iraq War. As mentioned, a great ensemble of top-notch actors directed by a top-notch storyteller in Richard Linklater. The subject matter of the movie is heavy, but there is a good amount of comedy that lightens the mood. Just seeing these three actors together is reason enough to check out this film, but the story of friendship and kinship will give you the feels also.
