RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: Law Abiding Citizen and Black Dynamite

Welcome to another week in home video. Many of the films that made big impacts before the winter movie season of 2009 have already found their way to DVD, so there isn't as much out there as one might hope. Nevertheless, we've been able to comb through the list of new releases to find some interesting choices for the discriminating consumer, and we're happy to report that only one of this week's choices has been reviewed as a Rotten film! The biggest (at least, probably best known) release this week is Law Abiding Citizen, starring Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx, but films like Black Dynamite, Good Hair, and Revanche were all highly regarded films that also hit shelves this week. Have a look at our full list and decide for yourself which might be worth checking out.More…

Critics Consensus: Where the Wild Things Are Is A Wild Rumpus

Five Favorite Films with F. Gary Gray

Director F. Gary Gray began his career creating music videos for several big name R&B and hip-hop artists in the early 90s, including Ice Cube, TLC, and OutKast. In 1995, Gray made a big screen splash with a little stoner comedy called Friday, starring a pre-Rush Hour Chris Tucker and an up-and-coming Ice Cube, a friend of Gray's. Friday was a surprise hit, opening the doors for future high profile projects such as The Negotiator, 2003's The Italian Job remake, and Be Cool. This week, Gray continues his strong track record in the crime/action genre with Law Abiding Citizen, and we got the chance to sit down and chat with him about his favorite movies, his career, and what it's like to sit in on a viewing of one of his films.More…
