Blu-ray/DVD release: Just Go With It Blu-ray/DVD – Watch Just Go With It Blu-ray/DVD Freely

The 2011 romantic comedy film starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, Just Go With It, will be on Blu-ray and DVD disc on June 7th. The film is based on the 1969 film, Cactus Flower, which was adapted from an earlier Broadway stage play, written by Abe Burrows, which in turn was based upon the French play Fleur de cactus.


Plot Synopsis:
On a weekend trip to Hawaii, a plastic surgeon convinces his loyal assistant to pose as his soon-to-be-divorced wife in order to cover up a careless lie he told to his much-younger girlfriend.

A short Just Go With It trailer:


This comedy film is really a fun comedy and has been popular worldwide. The two main stars of Just Go with It, Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, thankfully, have chemistry to spare. Both actors have plenty of sheer likability and honest ease, as well as sparks in just the right places, which helps propel Just Go with It to its satisfying (if a bit predictable) conclusion.

Review on Thor: Halloween principle - Choose not the expensive actors, but the suitable ones

Thor has got great success since its theatrical release. It has received nearly 80% of positive critic response after its release. This superhero film based on comic book character of the same name published by Marvel Comics and is the fourth film released in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, and Stellan Skarsgård with Kenneth Branagh directing a script by Ashley Edward Miller, Zack Stentz, and Don Payne.
The characters in this movie reflect the Halloween industry principle: select the most suitable actors, rather than expensive ones. The director Kenneth Branagh is best known for directing and starring in several film adaptations of William Shakespeare's plays. He handles all the effects work with aplomb, and treats the property with respect, even though the movie's tongue is consistently planted firmly in its cheek. Nothing is ever taken too seriously.

Chris Hemsworth has a nice, easygoing presence, and is hugely likeable in the lead role. But before Thor, he was in fact complete unknown to public, even not as well known as Tobey Maguire. Tom Hiddleston was also nobody even though he graduated from Eaton and Cambridge. But in this movie, the two handsome freshmen both get excellent performance and have been greatly popular.
And also, when Thor was about to start shooting, the Black Swan had not been finished. Natalie Portman arrived in New Mexico desert once she took off the dance shoes and turned to be a completely fresh and pure beauty from an evil black swan. And if Anthony Hopkins was ten years younger, he might have transferred the crabbed murderous characteristic to be the invisible mighty of Odin, but for sure he would not be able to reflect the aging and tiredness under the invisible mighty. Now, to the 74 years old Anthony Hopkins, everything happens without extra effort.
All the cast and the directors of this movie make it quite clear that Halloween is choosing the right actors, but not those expensive famous people.

There is rumored Thor news that the Thor Blu-ray/DVD would come out this fall. If you are going to have a Thor Blu-ray/DVD disc, then you may need the following tools:
