The Note 3 (drama, Genie Francis, Ted McGinley) – The cover of this shows photos of the stars that look about 20 years old. But it says it’s new. So confused, but this “abandoned baby awakens maternal instinct” TV movie looks to suck no matter when it was actually made.

Bad Ass (Danny Trejo, Charles S. Dutton) – A Vietnam vet is takes on thugs on a bus. Based, somewhat, on real life. Instant Streaming available.

21 Jump Street (action comedy, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum) – I suppose if you can’t think of a new idea it’s best to recycle old TV shows into spoofs instead of serious movie attempt. No, it’s not – do better, Hollywood.
