DVD Picks of the Week – “The Town”, “Despicable Me”, and more
This is a huge week for DVD releases. I guess all the studios want to get their titles out by Christmas. Boost sales a little bit. Normally I try to give a couple sentences on each film on why you should or shouldn’t see it, but due to the number I am just gonna hit you with some quick facts. So let’s dive in.
Starring: Bradley Cooper, Liam Neeson, Jessica Biel
My Take: There are better action titles available. Move along.
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Eva Mendes
My Take: I thought it was hilarious and one of the better dumb comedies I have seen in awhile.
Starring: Emma Thompson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Ralph Fiennes
My Take: Having never seen the first one, I was pleasantly surprised. A film that I think the whole family can enjoy.
Starring: Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand
My Take: A great year for animated films. Not the best, but certainly not the worst. Kids will love it and adults will tolerate it.
Starring: John C. Reilly, Marisa Tomei, Jonah Hill
My Take: Funny at times, more awkward in others. Not as good as I was hoping for.
Starring: Ben Affleck, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Hall
My Take: One of my top ten of the year. I highly recommend you seeing this if you have yet to.
Starring: Jim Sturgess, Hugo Weaving, David Wenham
My Take: Zack Snyder’s first trip into animation is a fail. It looks pretty good though visually.
