New on Blu-ray and DVD for January 23, 2018 "Thank You for Your Service" and "Geostorm"

Starring: Gerard Butler and Abbie Cornish
Rated PG-13 

When the network of satellites designed to control the global climate start to attack Earth, it's a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide 'geostorm' wipes out everything and everyone.

Geostorm” is a well-paced white knuckle CGI disaster movie with Gerard Butler heading a multi-national team to stop whomever has hijacked the Earth's weather control satellites.

Although "Geostorm" is somewhat cartoonish and stereotypical, the film does entertain and offers up some surprisingly heartfelt moments.

It gets a B and is rated PG-13.

Thank You for Your Service
Starring: Amy Schumer and Miles Teller
Rated R  

A group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they've left the battlefield.

"Thank You for Your Service" is a look at how war affects our modern soldiers who have returned home and are 
struggling with physical and emotional injuries as well as survivor guilt.

The film focuses on the difficulty of our men and women cutting through the red tape getting treatment and support from the government and family.

The film makes no apologies in conveying the hopelessness of the men and women who on one had we cheer and thank for their time protecting us, and then are abandoned by a system that is hugely inadequate to handle them.

"Thank You for Your Service" deserves a B and is rated R.
