DVD Tuesday: ‘Baghead’ & ‘Ghost Town’

With the studios taking a break for the holidays, we take a peek ahead this week at some of the DVDs coming out before the year’s end. There’s the horror parody Baghead, Ghost Town starring Ricky Gervais, and the popcorn-brained actioner Eagle Eye starring Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan. Plus, we look at two releases you may have missed recently: the original classic, The Day The Earth Stood Still, and Orson WellesTouch of Evil.

Film Friday: ‘The Duchess’ & ‘Lakeview Terrace’

Hot off the Toronto International Film Festival, and there are three more films coming to theatres from the annual event. In Toronto only, and select cities in the United States, the western Appaloosa moseys into town with Ed Harris directing and starring alongside Viggo Mortensen. The Duchess also debuts with Keira Knightly in another period drama, while Ricky Gervais stars in the comedy, Ghost Town.

Also opening this week, Samuel L. Jackson stars in the thriller Lakeview Terrace, the animated film Igor gets the young ones ready for Halloween, and for a dose of juvenile comedy, My Best Friend’s Girl also debuts.
