DVD Review LONDON TO BRIGHTON

LONDON TO BRIGH

The subject matter is pretty coarse but the performances from the two leads are remarkable, especially young Georgia Groome. Brutal, violent and completely riveting.

Highly recommended.

DVD Review AFTER.LIFE

AFTER.LIFE

Not perfect, but a worthwhile rental if you like occasionally stylish and moody films set in funeral homes, discussions of the afterlife and/or seeing Christina Ricci nude.

DVD Review MYSTERY TRAIN (BLU-RAY)

MYSTERY TRAIN (

A quirky cool love story to the mystique and allure of Memphis and its music, told via three interwoven stories.

DVD Review THE NATURAL (BLU-RAY)

THE NATURAL (BL

Despite the fact that it completely changes the ending and purpose of Bernard Malamud's classic novel, this Barry Levinson-directed period piece is a baseball love story from start to finish. It's not the director's cut, but I'm really okay with that, because this one always moves me.

If you own the SD director's cut you're not going to get any new measurable supplements here, but the image tweaks and the lure of Randy Newman's lossless score should be more than enough to tempt you for a double dip.

Highly recommended.

DVD Review PANDORUM

PANDORUM

What I fully expected to be a schlocky sci-fi film turned out to be a creepy, dark and atmospheric deep space thriller.

Recommended.

DVD Review GONE WITH THE WIND : TWO-DISC 70TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

GONE WITH THE W

This is an ageless Hollywood epicófour hours of drama, romance and waróand it remains a damn good yarn.

With the ideal 4-disc Collector's Edition now out of print and tougher to find (but worth the look), this stands as one to own if you need to add this to your library. And you do.

DVD Review THE SIMPSONS: THE COMPLETE TWENTIETH SEASON

THE SIMPSONS: T

I know there's a growing army who like to mutter that "The Simpsons stopped being funny after season (fill-in-the-blank)". Me, I still look forward to the show, and I think this twentieth year set backs me up on that, too. Plus, this is the season where things went HD, and even for this SD set that means anamorphic.

DVD Review THE SIX DEGREES OF HELTER SKELTER

THE SIX DEGREES

If you've an interest in the subject of the crimes of Charles Manson and his "family"—and have a need to see things like actual locations, crime scene photos, etc—then this somewhat self-serving but fact-filled documentary may merit a rental.

DVD Review WILL FERRELL: YOU'RE WELCOME AMERICA - A FINAL NIGHT WITH GEORGE W. BUSH

Will Ferrell as George W. Bush. I think you already know whether you'll think this is going to be funny or not, which is dependent on your stance on both Ferrell and Bush.

DVD Review A NOT SO SILENT NIGHT AT THE KNITTING FACTORY

A NOT SO SILENT

Perhaps one of the more unusual Christmas concerts I've seen, this family-and-friends affair anchored by Kate and Anna McGarrigle is oddly disarming, in an "I'm not sure this is charming or not" sort of weird way. It may not be the perfect fit for every household, but there is that elusive something on display here that I can't put my finger on that I found intriguing. Even perpetually craggy rock icon Lou Reed looked like he was enjoying himself.
