Flick Picks 11/26/13: Red 2, Jobs, final season of Breaking Bad

New at the library on DVD this week

ENTERTAINMENT: Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and Brian Cox are once again forced to leave the bingo parlor and reenter the espionage game in order to find a lost nuclear bomb and save humanity in Red 2. Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta Jones are along for the ride and John Malkovich is his usual eccentric self in this made-to-please sequel to the 2010 hit. Expect plenty of action, a little romance and many jokes about growing old. Also this week, Ashton Kuchter dons the black turtleneck in Jobs, a look at what made Steve Jobs tick as he changed the world with the Apple computer.

SERIES: The explosive ending of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman's adventures as drug dealers arrives this week as we reach the final season of Breaking Bad. Also up is season 6 of Murdoch Mysteries.

SUBTITLED: An actress comes out of rehab and tries to reconnect with her family and her audience while also dealing with her personal demons in the Danish Applause.

DOCUMENTARIES: The rock doc Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, focuses on Alex Chilton's influential and formerly obscure rock band.

All of our new and upcoming DVD releases are available on Bibliocommons.

Thanksgiving DVDs

It's time to give thanks for family, friends, health and videos! If you're looking for a film for Thanksgiving then you've come to the right place. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is always a hit with the kids and brings back some great memories for parents. If you're struggling with ideas for what to cook then you'll want to pick up Jacques Pepin's Thanksgiving Celebration. Did you know that The Last Waltz - Martin Scorcese's film of The Band's final concert - was filmed on Thanksgiving Day? The classic Woody Allen film Hannah and her Sisters begins and ends at the Thanksgiving table. Some other movies with key Thanksgiving scenes? Pieces of April, Funny People and The Blind Side!
