This week's picks largely focus on movies and music, with plenty of crazy thrown in.
In Fear I Trust, $2.99, Universal gameThis new game has everything: awesome puzzles, the power of the Unreal Engine 3, and a story that will force you under the covers.
“Blue Jasmine,” $4.99, Movie Rentalhttp://youtu.be/FER3C394aI8 None of the nine Best Picture Academy Award nominees are yet available to buy or rent in iTunes. While we wait, be sure to take a look at “Blue Jasmine,” featuring the frontrunner for Best Actress, Cate Blanchett. Now available to rent, the Woody Allen film features Blanchett as a crackpot socialite whose world has collapsed. Best Supporting Actress nominee Sally Hawkins costars, along with Alec Baldwin, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, and Bobby Cannavale.
"Frozen (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)," $11.99, AlbumI've added this for two reasons. It's 5 degrees Fahrenheit outside my window, and the album features Idina Menzel, who I adore.
"Flowers in the Attic," $4.99, TV movieCampy yes, but this 2014 television movie is much better than a previous attempt. Is that saying a lot? You decide. Based on the controversial 1979 book by V.C. Andrews.
