2020 has left many of us pining for reunions with friends and family, but the borderline unbearable and distressingly unfunny star-studded comedy Dinner with Friends might make anyone unfortunate enough to see it prefer their alone time.
Arriving this week on DVD and Blu-ray: the classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s debuts on Blu-ray starring Audrey Hepburn as the one-and-only Holly Golightly; Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph joke it up in the comedy, Bridesmaids; Disney’s animated classic, Dumbo, celebrates its 70th anniversary; plus reviews of Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal and Thor.
New arrivals on Blu-ray and DVD this week: Jason Statham stars as the assassin Arthur in the remake of The Mechanic; Kat Dennings plays a sardonic teenager in lust opposite Reece Thompson in Daydream Nation; and Anthony Hopkins takes on the powers of the devil in The Rite.
The cast of writer and director Michael Goldbach’s latest movie, Daydream Nation, walked the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival. Stars in appearance included Kat Dennings, Reece Thompson, Josh Lucas, and Katie Boland.
Yesterday was the start of the 35th Toronto International Film Festival and the big events were the opening gala film (Score: A Hockey Musical) and the opening night party.
New arrivals on DVD and Blu-ray this week include the comic-book mashup, Defendor, starring Woody Harrelson; plus the 1960s rock comedy, Pirate Radio, with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Bill Nighy.
