Blood and sex mix on a hot rainy night at Merlotte’s, when Sookie and her friends are trapped by a vengeful spirit who feeds on shame. People die and dirty secrets are revealed as Sookie, Bill, Eric, Sam, Tara, Jason, and Lafayette and are all coerced to dig deep and tell painful memories from their past – those things we all have locked within us that we never tell another living soul! Bon Temps, Louisiana has never been stranger, or more twisted, in a story co-plotted by “True Blood” series creator Alan Ball, with a script by David Tischman (“Bite Club”) and Mariah Huehner, and lush art by David Messina (“Star Trek: Countdown”).
3 copies of The King’s Speech on Blu-ray
Here’s the official synopsis:
After the death of his father King George V (Michael Gambon) and the scandalous abdication of Prince Edward VII’s (Guy Pearce), Bertie (Colin Firth) who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life, is suddenly crowned King George VI of England. With his country on the brink of war and in desperate need of a leader, his wife, Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), the future Queen Mother, arranges for her husband to see an eccentric speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). After a rough start, the two delve into an unorthodox course of treatment and eventually form an unbreakable bond. With the support of Logue, his family, his government and Winston Churchill (Timothy Spall), the King will overcome his stammer and deliver a radio-address that inspires his people and unites them in battle. Based on the true story of King George VI, THE KING’S SPEECH follows the Royal Monarch’s quest to find his voice.

Mesrine: Public Enemy #1 –3 Copies
In the early 1970s, following his crime spree and incarceration in Canada—and subsequent escape from prison—Jacques Mesrine (Vincent Cassel) returns to his native France to continue his life of crime, while manipulating the media, government and law enforcers. Taken into police custody in France and facing justice for his crimes, Mesrine escapes a courtroom during sentencing, kidnapping the judge at gunpoint. Declared “Public Enemy Number 1” and eventually condemned to a maximum-security prison, he writes his memoirs and establishes himself as a household name and the anti-hero across France. Mesrine stages another daring escape and disappears into the lawless underworld, taunting the police and reinventing himself as a celebrity criminal through his savvy handling of the press. After such a monumental rise, comes the inevitable fall as the police close in, bringing the life of Jacques Mesrine to full bloody circle.
