‘Tag’ and ‘Book Club’ reviews for DVD/Blu-Ray Tuesday

Local News

It’s Blu-Ray and DVD Tuesday, which means there are new movies out that you can take home or download. Film Critic Tony Toscano, joined Brian Carlson, in studio with the reviews for ‘The Book Club,’ and ‘Tag.’


Based on a true story, a small group of former classmates organize an elaborate, annual game of tag that requires some to travel all over the country.
“Tag” is a silly, summer fun film aimed at adults. The storyline is as simple as the rules of tag, but there’s something wonderfully exuberant about the way Jeremy Renner, Ed Helms and the cast approach their roles.
What could have ended up being another soulless frat-house film ends up to be a likable summer distraction.
“Tag” gets a B and is rated R.

Book Club

The members of a ladies’ conservative book club decide to read E.L. James’ erotic book, “50 Shades of Grey.” 

And reading it might be just the thing these women need to make over their love lives, from the bedroom to getting back into dating and rekindling an old romance.

“Book Club” is a predictable senior comedy centering around four women who have been best friends most of their lives. 

The film is aimed at an older crowd, as a viewer in their 30’s might not get the humor about growing older and most likely would feel uncomfortable with the subject matter.

That being said, if you’re in you’re in your later years, “Book Club” will hit its mark.
It gets a B and is rated PG-13.
