Blu-Ray and Digital HD Releases
Jason Bourne
The much anticipated return of Matt Damon as Jason Bourne is here to own, released on Blu-ray and 4k Blu-Ray.

The film finds Jason Bourne, sans amnesia, living under the radar when an old contact presents new information about Jason’s past and his father. The sensitive information places a target on Jason once again as he goes on the run once more, and fights anyone who gets in his way.

Purely as an action film, this installment is packed with the action and insane chase scenes we expect from the Bourne films. The editing and cinematography is spot on. Despite the shaky cam and non-stop scene switches, the sequences are great and easy to follow. However, while hints of Bourne’s relationship with his father surfaces, it never seems to dive any deeper on the character level, which may be ok to some who are looking for just non-stop action.

The film looks slightly different from scene to scene, which is probably attributed to the many different cameras and shooting styles of the film, however, they all work together and look noticeably crisp. The audio is presented in DTS:X which provides a great full surround sound that is greatly accentuated in an action film.

Extra features include a look into the franchise and its main character, a break down of 3 fight scenes from the film, and a 2-part feature on how two action sequences were filmed in Las Vegas.

While this installment is arguably the weakest in the Bourne saga, if you loved the action in the others, you’ll come to appreciate the same in this film. Enough for you to rewatch the others again and rejoice that Bourne is back again.

The Secret Life of Pets
Illumination Entertainment helps answer what our pets must be doing when we’re gone in the new animated film The Secret Life of Pets, out on Blu-Ray and Digital HD today.

The film follows a dog names Max, affectionately voiced by Louis C.K., who loves his city life with his master, Katie. All of that changes when Katie adopts a new dog named Duke. The two dogs then attempt to ditch each other to only find themselves in a predicament that threatens to separate them from Katie forever.

The film is filled with the same kind of humor and action that we expect from Illumination Entertainment, the makers of Rio and Madagascar. Overall, this family movie will delight the kids with enough humor for parents to keep the film going.

The film looks superb in 1080p and is particularly accentuated by the colorful nature of the film. The audio is presented in Dolby Atmos soundtrack and rounds out the film.

Extras include 3 cute mini-movies, quick interviews with the cast and producers, a feature starring Kevin Hart working with animal trainers, and other featurettes that break down scenes from the film. This is a great pick up for families for a nice weekend movie.
