It's DVD day again, and let's jump right into it. My PICK OF THE WEEK is actually a movie that came and went in a flash in theaters, but is an extremely well made piece of horror/suspense filmmaking. It is:
Director Greg McLean's second film (following the terrific Wolf Creek) is essentially a serious version of Lake Placid that's also better acted, shot, and just, well...better. Definitely worth a look.
-Last year's winner for Best Foreign Film is out as well, and it's The Counterfeiters. This is a very good drama, and if subtitles don't bother you, seek it out.
-Nim's Island is also out, but that's nothing special, despite the presence of Jodie Foster and Abigail Breslin in the cast.
-My old-school pick this week is The Mist, but more specifically, the black and white version that is available on the special edition version of the film. It adds a whole new level of terror to the proceedings and is something to behold.
-What will you guys be watching?
