Arriving this week on store shelves: Disney debuts their latest animated princess story, Tangled, starring Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi; Academy Award-winner Natalie Portman stars in Darren Aronofsky's psychological thriller, Black Swan; plus reviews of 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Riddick Collection on Blu-ray.
As you can likely tell by my absence, the Toronto International Film Festival has eaten me alive. We're now on day 6 of TIFF and I've barely had time to write anything, aside from in my notepad (provided oh-so-kindly by the folks at Fox) during screenings.
Two amazing, Oscar-nominated dramas make their debut on DVD this week: The Wrestler, featuring Mickey Rourke as an aging, down-on-his-luck star of the ring; and Ron Howard's film adaptation of the stage hit, Frost/Nixon. Also out this week, the biopic Notorious, Toronto Stories, Swing Vote, Smart People, and Into the Blue 2: The Reef.
