Let's see which films are hitting this shelves this DVD Tuesday March 8, 2010.
As it's only days after the Oscars ceremony, it's perfect timing for winning and nominated films to make their DVD debut. First up is Oscar winning Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire which took home the awards for adapted screenplay and actress in a supporting role for Mo'Nique. Also Oscar related is the 6-time nominated Up in the Air.
Get your thrills on with The Boondock Saints sequel with The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. I still need to see the original, which is on my current 101 in 1001 list.
Lots of festival savvy-like films this weekend starting with the highly acclaimed documentary/biography The Beaches of Agnes / Les Plages D'Agnes from director Agnes Varga. Next up is the Canadian pregnancy drama The Baby Formula. Also festivally is Gigante which I'm still kicking myself that I couldn't quite squeeze it in my TIFF schedule last year and last up for festival faves is Jerichow.
But if you feel like kicking it 80's style why not treat yourself to a blast from the bast with the John Cusack & Tim Robbins comedy Tapeheads. I need to see this film again. It's one of those films that was a completely random rental back in the day but ended up being a cult classic. I know that I'll still say lines from, even though I don't even realize that this film is the reference they come from.
Some more biggie titles this week include the cute looking animated film Planet 51 along with John Travolta & Robin Williams comedy Old Dogs.
