Saturday was one of the better days for me at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, and that's really the way it usually goes because, for whatever reason, things tend to be front-loaded at TIFF. The first three or maybe even four days pack in more activity than most of the other days combined. While that means I often had to choose between a number of stars in different places, thanks to a decently organized schedule I ended up doing interviews, red carpets, and the chance to be in the presence of the great Stan Lee.
New arrivals on DVD and Blu-ray this week include: Pom Wonderful Presents The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, director Morgan Spurlock's tongue-in-cheek heavily self-referential documentary about advertising in movies; plus a look at Jodie Foster's The Beaver, starring Mel Gibson.
Fresh on DVD this week, Morgan Spurlock goes hunting for Earth's most wanted man in Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden? Plus Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher play two gambling, drinking fools in the romantic comedy, What Happens in Vegas; Tim Burton's classic The Nightmare Before Christmas gets a new special edition; the Blade trilogy has Wesley Snipes fighting vampires; and comic books come alive on television in season two of Heroes.
