The Death and Life of John F. Donovan doesn’t play like a work from one of the most confident filmmakers in the world today. It comes across more like three films of varying quality stuffed uneasily and unconvincingly into a single package.
Arriving this week on store shelves: Disney debuts their latest animated princess story, Tangled, starring Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi; Academy Award-winner Natalie Portman stars in Darren Aronofsky’s psychological thriller, Black Swan; plus reviews of 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Riddick Collection on Blu-ray.
This week’s new arrivals on DVD and Blu-ray include Roland Emmerich‘s epic disaster, 2012; Spike Jonze‘s adaptation of the children’s book, Where the Wild Things Are; plus a look at The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, and Ponyo.
Opening this week in a theatre near you: Roland Emmerich directs the epic disaster, 2012; Philip S. Hoffman stars in the music comedy, Pirate Radio; plus a look at Prom Night In Mississippi, and The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day.
