...with some interesting options, though nothing that blew me away personally. For my PICK OF THE WEEK, I went with a film that I enjoyed, but one that was enjoyed far more by our own Myles Hughes (and my girlfriend for that matter...and yes, they're separate people). It's:
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
I liked much more of this flick than I disliked, but I still didn't dig it as much as some (including the aforementioned two people) did. That being said, it's the best that Terry Gilliam has been in a while, and features a nice performance by Heath Ledger to close out his career. The tragic passing changed this movie, and we'll never know what it might have been, but what it is is pretty good. If you're a fan of the actor or filmmaker, this is a good addition to your collection, mildly flawed as it may be.
-The release of note this week is It's Complicated, which is essentially porn for middle aged women. It does have some very funny scenes and a great comedic performance by Alec Baldwin, but overall I found it lacking. If you didn't, go right ahead and pick this one up.
-Also out this week is the John Malkovich drama Disgrace, Liam Neeson's crime drama Five Minutes of Heaven, the action flick Distict B13: Ultimatum, and the very mediocre horror comedy Transylmania. If any of these appealed to you, grab them and enjoy!
-My Vintage pick is, in honor of Friday's release of A Nightmare on Elm Street, the original Freddy flick. It's also called A Nightmare on Elm Street, and it's bound to be better than the new one, so if you haven't seen it, see it now!
-What will you be watching on DVD this week?
