Ong Bak 3 - Buy from Amazon: DVD, Collector's Edition DVD, or Collector's Edtion Blu-ray
The first Ong Bak wowed critics, but the second film was a disappointment. Did the third film recover? Won't know till the screener arrives.
Paranormal Activity 2 - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
Still waiting on the screener for this film. Hopefully it will arrive shortly, because I received a bundle of late DVDs / Blu-rays yesterday and I don't want to get too far behind.
Project Runway: The Complete Eighth Season - Buy from Amazon
A very popular Reality TV series, and while I'm not a fan of the genre, or of fashion, I will admit this is a good show, especially if you are a fan of both.
Repo Chick - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
Written and directed by Alex Cox, who previously wrote and directed Repo Man. This is an unofficial sequel and it has Cult potential, but it is certainly not made for mainstream success. If you are interested, I would recommend starting with a rental.
The Romantics - Buy from Amazon
When The Romantics opened in limited release, it took top spot on the per theater chart. But the next weekend it collapsed in a way you don't normally see, and it disappeared completely after just its third week of release. Perhaps when the screener arrives I'll be able to explain why this happened.
The Super Hero Squad Show: Quest For The Infinity Sword Volume Three - Buy from Amazon
A Marvel cartoon aimed at kids, and chemically altered college students. I reviewed volume two and found it quite enjoyable and I'm looking forward to reviewing the third volume, which is late.
Tamara Drewe - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
Gemma Arterton stars as the titular Tamara Drewe, who left her small town and... blossomed, and has now returned. The film earned 65% positive reviews which is great for a romantic comedy, but not so good for a limited release. Now that it has been released on the home market, it should find another life. Add in extras that include an audio commentary track and a making featurette, and it is worth picking up. The Blu-ray is a little pricey compared to the DVD and it is right on the border between being worth the upgrade or not. It depends on if you've given up on DVD.
Thelma & Louise - Blu-ray - Buy from Amazon
Just a quick note that the screener did arrive, but it arrived late. I'll get to it ASAP.
Wild Target - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
Despite a cast that includes many recognizable faces, this film never found an audience during its limited release run. Will it perform better on the home market? Or will it likely be ignored there as well? Check out our review
for my opinion.
You Again - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
Even compared to the average September release last year, You Again
's box office numbers were weak. Does it deserve to find a second life on the home market, or is it best ignored? Check out our review
to find out.
