RT on DVD: High School Musical 3 or Midnight Meat Train?
It's a good week for mediocre films (Body of Lies, Changeling, Quarantine and Flash of Genius, which all walk a fine line between Fresh and Rotten) and an even better one if you're a Wildcat at heart -- or a fan of Zac Efron (High School Musical 3: Senior Year)! Horror fans have an enticing two-fer to consider (Quarantine and the better-reviewed Midnight Meat Train, based on the Clive Barker short story), while left-wingers get the faith-skewing Borat (Bill Maher's Religulous). Curious thrill-seekers can also check out Dakota Fanning's controversial Sundance pic (Hounddog) and nab a Certified Fresh Czech import (I Served the King of England). See what else is new this week on DVD.
