RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: The Invention of Lying and Gamer Opens in new window

Last week, we thought things might be looking better for home video releases, what with a few of the highest rated films coming out (the Golden Tomato winners for both Best Limited Release and Best Comedy, in fact). Unfortunately, it looks like it might just be business as usual again this week, as we've got a handful of releases that failed to gain much momentum with critics. Having said that, there are still a few noteworthy choices, so let's look ahead with a positive attitude and take a look at what's new on DVD and Blu-Ray. After all, it's only the third week of January! More...

Critics Consensus: Zombieland Is Bloody Good Opens in new window

This week at the movies, we've got zombie zaniness (Zombieland, starring Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg); derby dolls (Whip it, starring Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page); funny falsehoods (The Invention of Lying, starring Ricky Gervais and Jennifer Garner); financial follies (Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story); and a pair of Pixar classics (Toy Story and Toy Story 2, both in 3-D). What do the critics have to say? For those who think there's nothing left on the carcass of the zombie subgenre to pick over, guess again.

RT Visits the Set of Cemetery Junction Opens in new window

"He won't do it," says Ricky Gervais, striding over to RT. He's referring to his round-headed friend Karl Pilkington. Last time we sat down with Gervais he'd suggested Pilkington -- co-star of his phenomenally successful podcast series with Stephen Merchant - as a film reviewer for the Tomatometer. "I said, 'They'll pay you 50.' He wasn't interested. I said, 'We'll dress you up as a giant tomato.' He went, 'Oh, this is getting better and better.'" But while Gervais has failed in that particular recruiting mission, he and Merchant are on fine form today. It's late July and RT has come to the Shepperton Studios set of Cemetery Junction, their first feature film together after success on the small screen with The Office and Extras. More...
