Speaking of Woody Allen, his last film is one of the films to drop on DVD today...

Yes, it's that time of the week again, and once again it's not a week to write home about. The movie I've chosen for my PICK OF THE WEEK is very good, but outside of that, not so much. My choice this week is:
Whatever Works
Woody Allen returns to New York with a very old script, and the result is an old fashioned comedy of his that is not his best work, but certainly above average. It's a charming enough film and passes the time very quickly. He directs his women extraordinarily well again, so if nothing else, see it for how he has them interact with himself, I mean Larry David.
-Also out this week we have a trio of average films. They are Orphan, Nothing Like the Holidays, and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. Orphan is an okay horror film that loses you with a sub-par twist, Nothing Like the Holidays is just like all the other holiday movies out there, and Ice Age is on the same level as all the other films in the series, so take that as you will. None of them get high marks from me, but if you think you'll like any of them, go ahead and give it a shot.
-My Vintage pick this week is, in honor of Friday's release of The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, the film that spawned this one: The Boondock Saints. It's a certifiable cult classic, and if you've never experienced it before, now is the time. It's certainly worth watching.
-What will you be watching on DVD this week?

  1. It's also a good week for horror movies, for obvious reasons...
