New DVD/VOD Tuesday, Dec. 3


The Wolverine - FOX
  • Fox
  • The Wolverine

The Wolverine
In the not-sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Logan (Hugh Jackman) travels to Japan to take on the Yakuza and the Silver Samurai—but he’s no longer immortal! Seems as dumb a mistake as not titling this Wolverine: Tokyo Drift. (Fox)

Drinking Buddies
Funny people Olivia Wilde, Ron Livingston, Anna Kendrick and Jake Johnson star in the inexplicably, painfully unfunny love-quadrangle story of pals who work at a craft brewery. Punchline: There isn’t enough beer to make this tolerable. (Magnolia)

All the Boys Love Mandy Lane
When teen girl Mandy (Amber Heard) heads out on a weekend booze ‘n’ drugs getaway with a bunch of horny boys, things go bad and bros get dead. Made in 2006, long before Heard’s thespian tour-de-force in the cinema classic Drive Angry. (Radius)

An FBI agent with an impressive collection of tight white shirts (Jasmine Waltz) goes to Florida to solve several bloody murders, possibly perpetrated by a government-created(?) chupacabra. How the hell did Syfy miss this? (Maxim Media)

Duck Dynasty: Seasons 1-3
Sure, after you’ve seen one episode you’ve seen ‘em all—but now you can own all 41 episodes of the first three seasons! And the set even comes with a Duck Dynasty bandana! You know someone who’s getting this for Christmas, don’t you? (A&E)
