How to Train Your Dragon 2

Sure it's for kids, but the How to Train Your Dragon series is pretty good. The second and most recent movie is now out to rent on Xbox Video. [PG, 1 hr 42 min]


It's a dumb comedy, but it's one of the few new movies out to rent this week [R, 1 hr 37 min]

Jersey Boys

Jersey Boys tells the story of the American rock and pop band The Four Seasons. Directed by Clint Eastwood, the movie was hit and miss with critics. Thankfully Xbox Video has a ten minute preview available if you think you might want to check it out. [R, 2 hr 15 min]

Bonus - UFC 180

UFC 180

Daniel wanted me to make sure nobody missed UFC 180 this weekend! You're not going to want to miss the interim heavyweight title fight between Fabricio Werdum and Mark Hunt.

UFC on Xbox isn't available for the Xbox One just yet, so don't retire your Xbox 360. Who are you pulling for this weekend?
