New On DVD/Blu-ray: 'Flight,' 'Alex Cross,' 'Yelling To The Sky,' 'Celeste And Jesse Forever'


All films we've highlighted on this blog; if you haven't seen any or all of them, pick them up on DVD and Blu-ray this week. Note: some of them have been on VOD/digital download for some time, and still are. So, that's another viewing option for you, if you're not into DVDs and Blu-rays.

 Flight (starring Denzel Washington, directed by Robert Zemeckis, from a script penned by John Gatins). The acclaimed drama also boasts an exceptional supporting cast including John GoodmanDon CheadleKelly ReillyBruce GreenwoodMelissa Leo and Brian Geraghty. Denzel is nominated for the Best Actor Oscar for his performance in the film.

– Tyler Perry's Alex Cross, which features a supporting cast of solid actors in Cicely TysonGiancarlo EspositoMatthew Fox, and Ed Burns. I actually never saw this at the theater, so I just might give it a look now that it's on home video.

– Victoria Mahoney's Yelling To The Sky – the coming-of-age drama that stars Zoë KravitzAntonique SmithGabourey SidibeTim Blake NelsonJason ClarkeYolonda Ross, and Shareeka Epps. I believe this has been available on iTunes for some time. So, look for it there as well.

– Rashida Jones' Celeste & Jesse Forever, which she co-wrote and co-stars in, alongside Will McCormack, as a young married couple who find themselves going in different directions in life, decide to get divorced and try to remain friends. I haven't seen this either, so I'll check it out as well.

That's it on the new list for this week!
