Time to take a look at a selection of DVD releases for Tuesday July 12, 2011!
[REC] 2 Follow up to the awesome Spainsh found footage horror film [REC], which is one of the only films I've seen in past several years where I've truly been scared. The sequel does a great job of pulling together what worked in the first without overly relying on it. If you can't get enough [REC] or want to catch up with both films you can with combo of [REC] 1 & 2 on BluRay (Amazon.ca only) -nothing like found footage films in glorious BluRay!
Insidious Well made & scary paranormal horror film that's got a really good pulse on what the paranormal fans are looking for, especially the non-fiction fans.
Dinocroc vs Supergator I love a good monster verses and I can't wait to see this one, not only for the monsters, but for David Carradine who stars in the film!
Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives I really, really want to see this fantasy/drama film from highly acclaimed Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, especially as it's title looks like a very literal description of the film. But until I see it, won't know for sure.
The Tempest there are a few versions of The Tempest in and around the culture worlds recently, and this one is from the stage at Stratford and stars Christopher Plummer.
The Lincoln Lawyer Based on the book of the same name following a lawyer who works out his Lincoln car.
Miral I'm not too familiar with this one but the cast is enough to get me interested as it stars Freida Pinto, Willem Dafoe & Hiam Abbass.
White Irish Drinkers this one did get a limited theatrical release here in Toronto although I didn't get a chance to see this 70's set crime drama staring Nick Thurston, Geoffrey Wigdor and Karen Allen. Maybe now is the time!
