Review: ‘Public Enemies’

Public Enemies was probably the only movie I was actually waiting for this summer with any sense of excitement or anticipation. Johnny Depp is on a real tear right now, so is Christian Bale, and director Michael Mann, for my money, has never made a bad movie. Some of his movies are better than others but they are all extremely well made and usually very interesting.

DVD Tuesday: ‘Sweeney Todd’, ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks’

This week we have what you might call a slow week in new DVD releases, with just two notable films arriving in stores. On the one hand you have the creepy, menacing, and bloody Sweeney Todd, with Johnny Depp starring as the man with the straight razor himself. For those of you not looking for a film about jugular-splitting revenge, Alvin and the Chipmunks also arrives this week, although you might wish Mr. Todd was paying you a visit if sticky-sweet remakes aren’t your thing.
