New on Blu-ray & DVD August 21, 2018 "Show Dogs" and "Deadpool 2"

Show Dogs
Starring: Will Arnett & Ludacris
Rated PG   

Max, a macho, solitary Rottweiler police dog is ordered to go undercover as a primped show dog in a prestigious Dog Show, along with his human partner, to avert a disaster from happening.

“Show Dogs” wants to be a cute, family friendly kid's movie. And on the outset it does entertain but, if the film is aimed at kids, it offers some mixed messages, especially when it comes to scenes involving groping. In my opinion these scenes needed to be left on the cutting room floor along with the accompanying message of “just grin and bear it.”

I think in this day and age, this type of comedy needs to be left out of a kid's film entirely.

Because of that “Show Dogs” gets a D and is rated PG.

Deadpool 2
Starring: Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin
Rated R   

Wise-cracking mercenary superhero Deadpool must assemble a team of mutants to fight Cable, a no-nonsense, dangerous cyborg from the future. Additionally, Deadpool must learn the most important lesson of all, to be part of a family again.

“Deadpool 2” is a solidly funny sequel which fans of the franchise will love. The film is irreverently funny, action packed and I love that the character breaks the 4th wall consistently.

Now, that being said. I can see where this type of film can get long in the tooth and stale rather quickly and the producers should make every effort to keep this franchise fresh.

“Deadpool 2” gets a B and is rated R.
