DVD: New Year’s Eve (comes with digital Ultraviolet copy)
Publisher/manufacturer: Warner Bros.
“New Year’s Eve” celebrates love, hope, forgiveness, second chances and fresh starts, with intertwining stories told amidst the pulse and promise of New York City on the most dazzling night of the year.
What we thought
This is a feel-good, Christmassy (though it could be watched at any time of the year) chick-flick which has some similarities to Love Actually. It’s nothing to write home about, but good to sit down in front of with a glass of Baileys while you do some Christmas wrapping, or possibly for a girlie night in with a bottle of wine. I didn’t connect hugely with the characters and didn’t feel especially invested in the film, though.
Would we recommend it?
This is a film I’d watch on Netflix or if it was on TV, but I probably wouldn’t buy it. If you’re not a Batman fan, you will probably enjoy it. If you are, you might find it jarring. Amazon has it available for £8.00, which isn’t too much. I might consider buying it at £5.00. They also have a Blu-ray version available for £10.00, which seems a good price for Blu-ray. Both the DVD and Blu-ray versions come with Ultraviolet digital copies.
Disclosure: We were sent a free copy of this DVD by Warner Bros., but the opinions are our own.
