DVD Releases for February 15, 2011

Tuesday Time, which means it's time to look at the DVD releases of the week and here is a look at the releases for February 15, 2011,

  • Cactus (DVD Review) absolutely sensational Australian abduction thriller that's perfect on all counts - writing, directing, acting... everything. A total must-see.
  • Unstoppable Possibly the biggest happy surprize of 2010 (and made the perfect list!) was this runaway train action flick starring Chris Pine, Denzel Washington and directed by Tony Scott.
  • The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu WOOT! This was the 2010 Toronto After Dark Festival Opener and is a lot of fun, although I know nothing about Lovecraft I can imagine fans will adore this take on the lore.
  • Ong Bak 3 (DVD Review) Tony Jaa is back to attack in this third in the series, historically-set martial arts with a spiritual spin show down.
  • Hatchet II (DVD Review) The only film I've ever heard of actually getting pulled from theatres in Toronto in it's limited release, now hits DVD in it's Unrated as-it-should-be-seen bloody slasher fest.
  • Bitter Feast (DVD Review) A very critical food blogger gets into trouble when a chef comes down on him, hard.
  • 10 1/2 This one is on my too see list for sure, it's received 8 Genie nominations this year including best picture!
  • Kites Bollywood flick hitting DVD, and I missed this one theatre and hoping to catch up with it now on DVD.
