RT on DVD: Oliver's W, Spike's St. Anna, and My Name is Bruce!
What better way to celebrate the inauguration of President Barack Obama by watching Oliver Stone's W. this week on DVD? While a handful of middling studio releases hit home video this week (Nights in Rodanthe, Soul Men, Blindness), the Certified Fresh pick (and Oscar nominee), Frozen River, hits as well. Celebrate Black History Month with the latest from Spike Lee (Miracle at St. Anna) or go indie with the moving directorial debut of actor Giancarlo Esposito (Gospel Hill). Finally, peruse the week's more eclectic offerings for a break from the norm -- and a well-placed roundhouse kick or two (Chocolate, Street Fighter Extreme Edition, and Bruce Campbell in My Name is Bruce).

It was just over 20 years ago that Capcom released the first game in the Street Fighter series -- so how better to celebrate than a report in Variety detailing plans for the new Street Fighter film adaptation?

Jessica Biel: "Street Fighter"?
Remember that pretty rotten Jean Claude Van Damme movie that was based on a video game called "Street Fighter"? Well, you can bet the producers of the new version wish you'd forgotten.

"Street Fighter: The Movie!" (Yes, another one.)
Hey, remember that really goofy "Street Fighter" movie that starred Jean-Claude Van Damme and (in his final role) the great Raul Julia? Remember how it pretty much stunk? Yeah, well get ready for an all-new adaptation of that particular video game.
