DVD Releases for Tuesday December 14, 2010

Getting closer and closer to the holidays and we are getting more and more DVDs out that will hopefully make it under people's trees for happy film times over the holidays!

Tuesday December 14, 2010 DVD releases:
  • Despicable Me: One of the big surprizes this year was how delightful and funny this film was, lots of giggles, cutness and an awesome trio of girls too.
  • The A-Team: little more violent than I expected but solid action reboot
  • XXY: amazing film with a fantastic peformance by Inés Efron in a film that explores gender & identity
  • Gasland: highly acclaimed doc from festival circuit
  • The Immaculate Conception Of Little Dizzle: I'm so surprized I didn't see this one in the theatre, looked quirky & bizarre - so much so I thought it was Canadian.
  • Mesrine Part I: Killer Instinct crime biopic starring Vincent Cassell (Part II comes out Dec 28 2010)
  • Quintessential Guy Maddin: 5 Films from the Heart of Winnipeg I seriously heart Guy Maddin for this exuberant and bizarre artistic vision, this complication includes Careful (1992), Twilight of the Ice Nymphs (1997), Archangel (1990), Dracula: Pages from a Virgin's Diary (2003) and Cowards Bend the Knee.
  • The Other Guys: Surprizingly funny, although I've seen all but the last 10 minutes of the film (watched in flight from San Francisco)
  • Nanny McPhee Returns: Family fun goodness in urban meets rural and all hands are on deck against the crazy Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson).
  • The American: George Clooney stars as a hitman in Italy doing that one, last job.
  • Cyrus Going out on a limb and saying this felt like the big sleeper comedy of the year.

Friday December 17, 2010 DVD releases:
  • Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole - This is the one that got away from me this year, animated and 3D and looks like quite the sweeping epic fantasy tail
  • The Town Ben Affleck stars and the lead bank robber that falls for the FBI agent whose looking for him & his crew. I want to see it sheerly because Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) is in it.
