I hereby decree May 11th, in the year of 2010, to be the new Obligatory Save Your Money Release Post day! Yes, ladies and gents, one look at this week's new dvd lineup, I'd highly recommend you just save any money you have....
Have you tried investing in Ostrich farms?
Edge of Darkness: It's always a dangerous thing when someone gets close to the edge of darkness. If you don't time your double clap right they'll walk right into the wall. Damn you clap-on clap-off lights, damn you!!!!!! Unfortunately for this movie, the only thing dark about it was the back of my eyelids as they quietly nodded off. My Review
Legion: Paul Bettany..... Dennis Quaid..... I know paychecks are nice, but could you at least try and look harder. Quaid's stuck with the "who the hell is shining that light in my eye" look the entire time while Bettany seems to have phoned in his dialogue from down the street. They're both among my favorite performers to watch, but this movie is just garbage. I couldn't even enjoy its campiness. You can listen to my discussion of the film on podcast #9, here.
Daybreakers: They tried. They really did try. I give them that much at least. But with such an overbearing coldness to the personalities, compounded with one of the more laughably cheesy "twists," Daybreakers limps to the end taking every Matrix (and Equilibrium) shot it can hoping to squeeze by. Signs your movie sucks: it has a redneck unnecessarily named Elvis (I'm putting that in the books). My Review
Other Releases: Malice in Wonderland, Elysium, One Deadly Summer, How I Got Lost
Now, here we have some things worth mentioning.
Robin Hood: Men in Tights (Blu-Ray): God I love this movie. Compound that with the simultaneous release of another Brooks blu-ray film, History of the World Part 1 and you've got me hooked in for the weekend.
Toy Story 1 & 2 Special Editions: What do they have in them? I don't know. It's Toy Story! If you need to know anymore, then you're barking up the wrong tree.
M (Criterion Collection): For a time there I had labeled this film the anti-Google film. How does one look up a movie with just M in the title! Thankfully now more sites have applies movie/film to it, making it easier to look up. Be sure to check out this classic thriller :)
That's all I got for you lovely people today. Ciao.
