This Week on DVD & Blu-ray (12-20-11)

December 20, 2011

This is the rare week where I don’t feel the need to catch up on any new releases, which is a good thing since I have to catch up on reviewing films that are now in theaters. Those of you who are still scrambling for holiday gifts – look no further! Uncle David is turning this week’s releases into great gift ideas for those movie fans in your life. In the list below, there are 6 movies (all released this year) that I have seen, 3 of which I have reviewed here (see links), and 3 of them I enjoyed. I’ll be breaking down these titles in genre, so you can better decide who should receive these as gifts.
Let’s start with “Dolphin Tale”, a based-on-a-true-story movie that would be a satisfying watch for any family. For those seeking mindless video game-style action, “Columbiana” is a safe bet, since that’s about all you’ll find there. Woody Allen’s latest “Midnight in Paris” has been embraced by seemingly everyone except myself, but it’s still a film that can be easily enjoyed by just about anyone, especially those with an affinity for the classic style rom-com. If you know anyone who enjoys Westerns, “Blackthorn” is an interesting take on the legend of Butch Cassidy starring Sam Shepard. For those with narcolepsy, the financial crisis drama, “Margin Call” is sure to put anyone to sleep. So, you could be doing someone a favor, by saving the cost of meds. And finally, those who gravitate toward sports dramas but also like some genuine family tension would appreciate “Warrior” as a gift.
Well, there ya have it – hope that helped! Enjoy the movies and whatever festivities you partake in, and as always – Enjoy the Rundown!
