VIEW FROM THE COUCH: 'Epic' features star-studded cast

Posted: Updated:

Time for a look at some of the interesting highlights making their way to DVD and Blu-ray and streaming on the Internet this week.

EPIC

"Epic" is an animated fantasy family adventure is from the makers of "Ice Age" and "Madagascar" A star-studded cast voices the assortment of humans, leafmen, snails, slugs and frogs that populate an unassuming suburban neighborhood.

After being shrunk and transported to a magical world (aka: her backyard), a teenager (played by Amanda Seyfried) is recruited by Beyonce's nature spirit, to help the "leafmen" save their forest from Waltz's evil warriors.

This got great reviews when it was released last spring, and is a welcome addition to the family movie library.

THE KILLING SEASON

What do you get when you put two established and accomplished actors in a movie, but forget to promote it? You get "The Killing Season" starring John Travolta and Robert DeNiro. To quote the summary "deep in the Appalachian Mountains, a reclusive veteran (DeNiro) and a European tourist (Travolta) strike up an unlikely friendship. The review? Actors are great, the plot, not so much.
