"I've got that flying horsey in my sight" He-Man & the Masters of the Universe was a massive hit toy line and a massive hit animated TV series. He-Man ruled the airwaves in the 80s and it would only make sense to not only make a feature length theatrical film but also a new spin-off series with a new character! The film follows Price Adam/He-Man as he embarks on the search for his twin sister. Turns out that a new villain by the name of Hordak had kidnapped He-Man's twin sister shortly after birth and taken here to another dimension on a planet called Etherea. No one knows what happened to the little girl, Adora. But, with this information and with a magical sword, He-Man is on his way to find Princess Adora.  What much can be said of "The Secret of the Sword", it's not necessarily a film for cinemas as there is nothing special enough about the movie for it to warrant a theatrical release, other than the length of the film.

John Wick Chapter 2 Coming to Blu-ray This June


Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced that they will be unleashing John Wick Chapter 2 on to Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Blu-ray on June 13th, 2017

Chapter 2 is the sequel to the sleeper hit John Wick, released in 2014. The original grossed $88 million worldwide on a $20 million budget. The film would go on to become one of the best selling blu-rays of that same year. Chapter 2 would go on to do even better, grossing $159 million on a budget of $40 million.

Chapter 2 picks where the last film left off. John Wick is called out of retirement again by a former associate who Wick has a blood oath with. This blood oath leads Wick to Rome where he is to take out a seat holding member of a group of high power assassins. Once Wick takes out the target, he returns to New York where he finds that he has become a target himself.

Chapter 2 is a fine sequel. It takes what the first did well and improves on it. The film is filled with amazing action sequences that need a second view to really appreciate.

The blu-ray looks to be packed with special features, but this is going to be a day one purchase for me anyway.

The special features for the Blu-ray and the 4K disc are as follows:

-Audio Commentary with Keanu Reeves and director Chad Stahelski
