July 7th
A Day In The Life
Written, directed and starring hip-hop legend Sticky Fingaz (from the band Onyx), A Day In The Life is a hip-hop action-thriller about one man who is struggling to leave the street life behind but is caught between a war involving two crime families. Along with Fingaz, the film features an all-star cast including Mekhi Phifer (TV's "ER"), Michael Rapaport (TV's "Prison Break"), and Faizon Love (Idlewild). The DVD contains special features including a music video by Sticky Fingaz and a "Making Of" featurette.

A Day in the Life takes the audience on a wild journey through one day of an intense street war between two rival crime families. Stick's clan is the underdog of the two families that is pushed into the war by Black who is the head of the more powerful crime family. Black's family draws first blood by raiding one of Stick's drug houses and killing two of his men. From that point on, Stick struggles with the moral dilemma of either calling off his life of crime or seeking revenge and continuing the ongoing feud. Stick's decision becomes even more complicated when his girlfriend breaks the news that she's pregnant. The word is out that Black has put a contract out on Stick's life and on top of all his problems, two detectives are now hot on his trail. Stick decides to flee the country with his girlfriend but before boarding the plane, a vicious gun battle ensues and no one knows who will remain standing when the smoke clears.
Pricing: DVD $19.98

July 21st
Super Capers
A wannabe superhero joins a team of bumbling heroes-in-training on a mission to thwart an evil plot in this high-flying comedy for the entire family featuring Clint Howard (Frost/Nixon), Adam West (TV's "Batman: The Series"), Doug Jones (Pan's Labyrinth), and Tom Sizemore (Black Hawk Down). Recommended family entertainment by The Dove Foundation and awarded the Family Approved "Dove Seal," Super Capers tells the story of Ed Gruberman, who may not possess any actual super-powers, but his passion for fighting crime rivals that of even the greatest comic book do-gooders. When Ed becomes a member of The Super Capers, an oddball team of aspiring superheroes, it seems as if his dream of fighting crime for real is about to come true. Upon discovering evidence of an evil plot involving gold bullion, an alluring femme fatale and a powerful criminal mastermind, Ed travels back in time to prevent a disaster the likes of which the world has never seen. Special features include audio commentary with Writer/Director Ray Griggs, deleted scenes, a making-of featurette, a music featurette, a digital comic book and more!
Pricing: DVD $19.98

Retribution Road
Johnny Rios is the most sadistic outlaw in south Texas. After being captured during a foiled bank robbery in the sleepy town of Wardlaw, Rios is incarcerated. The town's courageous Sheriff awaits the return of Rios' family, who has given him twenty-four hours to release their brother, or else. Now it's good vs. evil as one man has to choose between honor and the possible destruction of an entire town. The laws they live by are the laws they'll die by on Retribution Road.
Pricing: DVD $26.98
