Tuesday DVD Rundown
Okay, so I’ve really got nothing new to offer you this week aside from a brief overview with corresponding links to movies I’ve already reviewed. They can’t all be winners now, can they? At least all three of these movies are pretty solid options.
Worth a rental:
With Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski.
I don’t have much to add to my theatrical review, so just read that if you haven’t done so yet. It’s just a really funny, sweet and thoroughly likable movie. I don’t see how anyone couldn’t enjoy it. It’s too bad I can’t say that for more romantic comedies.
RIYL: As Good as it Gets, Something’s Gotta Give, Rumor Has It.
With Heath Ledger, Christopher Plummer, Verne Troyer, Lily Cole, Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell.
If I had to recommend one movie for purchase this week, it would be this one. There isn’t much I can say about it that I haven’t already said in my review that I posted just a few short days ago. Read that.
RIYL: 8 1/2, Big Fish, Being John Malkovich (really anything from Charlie Kaufman).
With Liam Neeson and James Nesbitt.
Apparently when I posted my mini-review (get it here) for this one a few weeks ago, it was a Blockbuster exclusive. Well, now it’s available everywhere else. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone in the mood for 85 minutes of unrelenting tension.
RIYL: Munich, Hunger, Frost/Nixon.
