Well, this is interesting. This week it also seems as if the studios are just as afraid of releasing anything good on DVD close to The Dark Knight Rises as there is really nothing fantastic released either. The best option looks like Friends with Kids which is an ensemble comedy that actually puts a new spin on parenting, relationships and RomComs. With Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott, Chris O'Dowd and Maya Rudolph, sign me up.
In other news, The Three Stooges and Lockout were also released this week. When it comes to DVD, I think I might just prefer to watch the original Stooges, but perhaps it might be worth checking out what they did. Lockout, is screaming to be a rental, but I still am not convinced not it is even worth that.
DVD/Blu-Ray July 17th
|1. The Three Stooges|
It ended up making $44 million in the theaters, which was probably way more than a lot of people expected. Now it will be interesting to see how the re-booted version of Larry, Curly and Moe fair on DVD. Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk.
Space + Guy Pearce + Maggie Grace + Kidnapping should be great, right? Then you realize there is all premise, no story, and no logic and it just falls apart. Sad.
|3. Casa De Mi Padre|
Will Ferrell made a Spanish language film and that is not a joke.
|4. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen|
I think this is one of the only films that could make fly fishing interesting. Interwoven with a love story, Britain's leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is approached by a consultant (Emily Blunt) to realize a sheikh's vision of bringing fly fishing to the desert of Yemen. It sounds absurd, but ends up being charming.
|5. Friends with Kids|
I think we know how this is going to end, but looks like an original, fun way to get there and with that cast, I'm willing to put in any time necessary.
Clive Owen, what are you doing?!?
|7. Singin' in the Rain|
For the first time on high definition blu-ray, this musical is one of the best of the genre, and will have you bouncing around and singing in no time. It's a classic that stands up to this day.
