A less-than epic edition of: New on DVD

Tuesday, August 20, 2013 | by: Mat DeKinder

This time of year is as thin on DVD releases as it is on theatrical releases. I'm sure the marketing gurus have deduced that everyone it too swamped with back-to-school goings on to be throwing around entertainment dollars. Welcome to the dumping ground. 


Just think, if you crossed "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" with "FernGully: The Last Rainforest" you would get ... a pretty average family movie. Such is "Epic," where tiny creatures in the forest are locked in a timeless battle of good vs. evil. Ponder this: if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around does it make a sound? And if a lifeless kids' movie is released on dvd on the second-to-last week in August does anyone care?
