DVD Previews: Underworld and a Not-So-Happy Mother's Day

by at . Comments

This week's home video releases include some laughs, some love, some lethality, and some Lycans. There's even a film themed for next weekend's Mother's Day, though I would read the description before ordering it for Mom.

Underworld: Awakening: The fourth film in the Underworld series, Awakening saw Kate Beckinsale return to the fold as Selene after sitting out the third film (the prequel, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans). For fans of action, adventure, vampires, and werewolves, the Underworld series is a beloved addition to the genre. Underworld: Awakening is available in Blu-Ray and Blu-Ray 3D. 

The Vow: This love story based on the actual lives of Kim and Krickitt Carpenter, is not a Nicholas Sparks film, but it sure looks like one. It even stars Nicholas Sparks veterans Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams. The Vow is a tender romance about a woman who, after a car accident, loses all memory of her husband, forcing the husband to re-win the love of his own wife.

Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie: Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim of Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! bring fans this hilarious comedy. In it, Tim and Eric squander a billion dollars meant to be used toward a movie, and must restore an old mall in order to earn the money back.

Mother's Day: Despite the title, you may not want to get your mom this DVD for Mother's Day this year. Unless, of course, your mom is a giant horror fan. The creator of Saw II through IV presents this terrifying tale of a group of brothers who, after robbing a bank, seek solace in their childhood home. Once there, they discover that the home is no longer owned by their mother, and take the new occupants hostage. That is, until their mother shows up, and takes over the situation.
