One of the best movies of the first half of the year comes to DVD this week!

Indeed, one of the films that I listed as being one of the 5 best of the year so far in the inagural Podcast (and a new one is coming later today!) is on DVD today and is my obvious PICK OF THE WEEK. It's:
Two Lovers
I absolutely loved this grown up romantic drama, which features one of Mr. Phoenix's best performances (and hopefully not his last). It has a lot in common with a low key Woody Allen film, just without the comedy. I absolutely adored this film and imagine you will as well.
-Also out this week we have the dumb John Cena action flick 12 Rounds, Fred Durst's directorial debut (even though it's his second to come out) The Education of Charlie Banks, which is flawed, but not bad at all, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li, which is a legend I'd like to forget, The Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, which is what it is, and Uwe Boll's Tunnel Rats, which is an Uwe Boll movie, enough said.
-My Vintage pick this week is the classic comedy Real Genius. Val Kilmer absolutely cracks me up everytime as a slacker with a brilliant mind. It's a movie that never fails to pick me up when I'm feeling down, so it should do the same for you! (It's also one of my favorite movies to quote)
-What will you be watching on DVD this week?

  8. I may have been one of only 10 people to see The Education of Charlie Banks, but Durst is not without talent
