What to Watch!!!!!!! Oh, and DVD releases. Below the break!
DVD Oct. 19th.
| 1. Predators |
Alex and I both had a pretty decent time at this one, so if you didn't catch it in theaters and like some Predator action, check it out, won't you?
| 2. Oceans |
An apparently wonderful-looking film that's a bit weak in the narration department. Still, might be something to keep the rugrats distracted for an hour or two. You know, if you have kids, and you need to distract them while you do...other stuff.
| 3. Please Give |
I know she's a serious actress and all, but I would totally buy Catherine Keener a beer if I saw her in a bar.
| 4. Until the Light Takes Us |
Any film that has a credit for someone named "Hellhammer" playing "Himself" is alright by me. This documentary on Norwegian black metal only serves to illustrate that I have no clue how to spell "Norwegian". Thanks, spellcheck!
| 5. Smash His Camera |
A documentary on the paparazzi who are both killing the noble aspects of our society and thoroughly entertaining us when it's slow at work.
| 6. Agora |
The latest from multi-talented writer/producer Alejandro Amenabar was a smash success in Spain, but didn't quite catch on in America, grossing less than a million dollars. It's understandable; I think we're all a little worn out on films that dramatize the conflict between science and religious fundamentalism by examining the life of Hypatia, said to be the first female mathematician.
| 7. Apocalypse Now |
Three-Disc "Full Disclosure Edition". Sure.
| 8. Seven Samurai |
Possibly my favorite film comes to Blu-Ray in a three-disc Criterion edition, complete with two commentary tracks and a fifty-minute documentary.
| 9. Psycho |
Another classic comes back in a 50th anniversary edition.
| 10. Mirrors 2 |
Wow, a direct-to-dvd sequel to Mirrors starring Nick Stahl. You're better than this, Stahl!
| 11. Night of the Demons |
A remake of the classic 1988 horror film. Guess that's...good?
| 12. Giallo |
Dario Argento somehow managed to get Adrian Brody to star in this apparently dire serial killer film. Star power didn't prevent it from going direct-to-dvd, however.
