This Week on DVD

posted by Nell Minow

DVD pick of the week: The Grace Card This unpretentious but sincere film about the power of anger and the greater power of forgiveness has quiet power, and its final scenes are moving and inspirational.

Also on DVD this week:

Battle: Los Angeles Destined to be remembered primarily as yet another step toward closing the gap between games and movies, the essence of “Battle: Lost Angeles” is a lot of boom-boom and a bunch of “ooo-rah.”  But the action scenes in this military vs. alien invaders saga are fun and the one-the-ground and on-the-fly portrayal of operational strategy and honor is stirring.

Hall Pass A vile mess that wastes the talents of everyone involved, this is an un-funny comedy about married men who want to be cool and single again, just for a week.

Red Riding Hood Oh, Grandmother, what a big, bad movie you have.  I invoked my famous “Gothika Rule” on this one.

    TV is mostly reruns this week, and even the DVD releases are not very interesting. So I went to the Director’s cut, Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring Tuesday night. It was indeed amazing and worth the extra admission price. Every detail in the amazing sets and costumes was clear. The story holds up even more with the additional minutes of film. I hope to get to the “Two Towers” next week, but will have to miss “Return fo the King”.

    I still want to see Super8, but I think I can get someone to go with me. No takers on the hobbit fix.
