The unique and often rather dark Canadian comedy The Kid Detective is the best movie of its kind since Fletch.
The effectively simple and fast paced survival thriller Ready or Not offers up one final blast of giddy, gory fun just as the summer is wrapping up.
Painfully stilted, cliched, and sometimes unintentionally funny, the Canadian ghost story Isabelle is yet another uninspired indie horror that only works if the viewer hasn’t seen another movie in their life.
New releases this week on Blu-ray and DVD include: the steamy Tamara Drewe, starring Gemma Arterton as a journalist looking to say goodbye to her home town; Middle Men, with Luke Wilson as a problem solver trying to make a fortune off of the early days of Internet pornography; the light drama, The Romantics, with Katie Holmes and Anna Paquin; plus a look at the comedies You Again, and Life As We Know It.
Coming out this week on DVD and Blu-ray: Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan star as zany cops in Kevin Smith‘s action-comedy, Cop Out; a group of framed CIA agents try to clear their names in The Losers; plus a look at season two of Lexx on DVD.
New this week at a theatre near you: Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan star in Kevin Smith‘s action comedy, Cop Out; plus a look at the horror film, The Crazies, starring Timothy Olyphant.
Happy New Year, everyone. The holidays are safely behind us now, and the epic pile of new releases that came out at the end of 2009 is slowly starting to dwindle. There are a few notable new films on DVD and Blu-ray though, including the wonderfully silly, The Final Destination, the animated sci-fi adventure, 9, not to mention the campy Jennifer’s Body, and the animated movie, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs.
This will be a quick update, but I just wanted to post some info about my night so far. Yes, the fun has begun and I’m just in-between my gigs for the first night of the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
