Here are this week's new releases. There are some pretty decent titles this week, especially in the TV offerings. Word of warning however, just because you see Iron Man 3 on this list don't get too excited. I have no clue how so many people are so in love with this movie. I thought it was terrible. It reminded me a lot of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, in that it tried so hard to be funny and clever and it just ended up being the worst of the series.
I felt robbed after I left the theater when the trailer billed it as such a dark, probing and intense chapter of this previously great series. Once it was over, I was only left with rage, an intense and passionate rage that I had just wasted time and money on this crap movie.
I own all the Marvel films so far, and I will not be purchasing Iron Man 3, and for those of you who know me you know that's a big deal.
That's all I have to say for now on this week's releases, I just had to get that off my chest, guess I'm still a little more bitter about the whole thing than I thought, haha.
Take a look at what else releases this week in film and television below.

"Star Trek" Release Tuesday
Listen, I'm no "Trekie" and honestly I had never seen a single second of a Star Trek anything until I saw the first remake a few years ago. However, I think these movies are brilliant from top to bottom and I have been eagerly awaiting the DVD/Bluray release of Star Trek: Into Darkness since I left the movie theater.
There is no need for Buy, Watch, Wait or any other reviews this week. Stand up right now, leave your office, classroom, bedroom, Korean massage parlor, and get in your car, drive to your nearest DVD/Bluray retailer and spend your last few dollars on this movie. If you don't have a Bluray player, buy a new HDTV and Bluray player, then buy this movie a second time. It is that good.
Not that any other releases matter today, but just in case they do to you, here they are:

Pol's Pick for a Netflix Must-Watch...Give You One Guess Where It Is From...
So yes, another Korean show. Bear with me here. First let’s go over the basics. The show revolves around the story of Baek-rock. He is the leader of the Black Swords, which is a secret (black ops) military squad for the King of Korea. Baek-rock was a childhood friend of the King they grew up together because the eventual King was his adopted brother. Baek-rock has a biological brother named Baek-kyul (I will now be referring to Baek-rock as “Rock” and Baek-kyul as “Kyul”). There is also a love interest (of course). Her name is Jeong-yeon. Both brothers Rock and Kyul are in love with her.
As I mentioned earlier, Rock works for the King as the leader of the Black Swords. Kyul works for the Prime Minister as part of the Royal Guard, and is also the Prime Minister’s son-in-law. The King, and the Prime Minister don’t like each other. Each is trying to take the other’s political power by any means.
The Black Swords and the Royal Guard seem to run into each other a lot in this show. Now you ask, why would these two brothers fight each other? What happened between them?? Well, Rock knows that’s Kyul is part of the Royal guard. It’s a very high government position. Kyul has no idea Rock is part of the Black Swords. This leads to some very interesting situations. There are even times when Rock and Kyul are fighting each other in the dark and it leaves you in total suspense.
I’m sure this may all sound a little confusing, but as you watch this show, it makes total sense. There are very few main characters in the show, and they have very…VERY distinct looks.
Now, this was just the story I’m talking about. The action: incredible. Great sword fights. I’m not a fan of the CGI blood. Reminds me of Sparticus. I have no idea why it is used. I’m guessing it makes production of the show cheaper.
But in all honesty, it’s the story line that will make you continue watching. Each episode ends making you say, “Oh come on! It’s 3AM!! I need to sleep! Okay fine one more episode.” I highly recommend watching this series, and in true Korean fashion, It’s 1 season. You only get 12 episodes! Which means I need to watch some more stuff because you guys will finish watching this before I can probably finish another show!
Shoot us a message and let us know what you think. Did you like it? Did you hate it? Either way, we want to hear from you. Also, don't hesitate to send us your recommendations, we are always looking for new stuff to check out and write about, so let us know what you want to hear about.
