DVDs Last Week

Posted in DVDs by Sam Unsted on May 19, 2008

I missed putting this up last week… sorry!

Pick of the Week: Indiana Jones Special Editions – Brand-spanking new editions of three classic adventure films preceding the upcoming fourth instalment.

Also Out:
PS I Love You – Rom-com with Hillary Swank and Gerard Butler. Apparently, not great.
Alien vs Predator: Requiem – An inferior sequel to a terrible movie.
American Dad: Season 3 – Ever-improving Family Guy off-shoot.
Mr Magorium’s Wonder Emporium – Colourful toy shop fantasy with Dustin Hoffman and Natalie Portman.
Local Hero – New edition of brilliant Scottish masterpiece from Bill Forsyth.
Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story – Disappointing Apatow-stable effort with a couple of laughs.
The War Zone – Heavy Tim Roth-directed autobiography. Not for the faint-hearted but worth it overall.

Region 1:
I’m Not There – Terrific, imaginative biopic of Dylan by Todd Haynes.
The Great Debaters – Denzel-directed inspirational true-life drama. Got a couple of Golden Globe nods.
Untraceable – MySpace tech thriller which you could rent if you literally had nothing else to do. Literally nothing.
