...hoping to make a bigger splash here than they did in theaters. It's not a great week for DVD in terms of quality or volume, but it's not the worst we've had, so there's that. For my PICK OF THE WEEK, I went with the only film this week I gave a positive review to. It's:
An interesting sci-fi take on the vampire story, this futuristic flick is a complete B movie, but a compelling and well made one. There's ideas to be found here, and while it's not a classic or anything, it's very solid genre fare that's worth a look for anyone into vampires or the future.
-Also out this week we have Edge of Darkness and Legion. The former is a decent Mel Gibson starring vehicle that never quite becomes as good as it could have been, while the latter is a stunningly mediocre to bad action movie that makes absolutely no sense. Between the two, definitely go with Mel, but neither did a whole lot for me in general.
-My Vintage pick this week is, in honor of the release of Ridley Scott's Robin Hood, Mel Brooks' alternate take on the legend. It's Robin Hood: Men in Tights, and it's a laugh riot. Though not the best Brooks ever put out, it's definitely amusing and well worth watching again (or for the first time).
-What will you be watching on DVD this week?
