The story of Rio is more than enough to make up for the cheap 3D effects, and amazingly, propels this tale into anyone’s Best of list for 2011 (so far).
This week’s new releases on DVD and Blu-Ray include Michael Caine revenge actioner Harry Brown, Tyler Perry formula movie Why Did I Get Married Too and… Marmaduke.
Comic strip Great Dane Marmaduke is jumping to the big screen this summer. Voiced by Owen Wilson, George Lopez, Kiefer Sutherland and Fergie.
