RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Plus, a couple of female-centric comedies, a couple of Certified Fresh docs, and Kevin Smith's horror movie.
The home video release trend as of late has been such that the majority of noteworthy titles have been rereleases of older films, with just a few brand new ones worth even mentioning at all. This week, the trend shifts a bit, with only a handful of notable old films (a Criterion edition of Kaneto Shindo's Kuroneko, new but not particularly special Blu-rays of The Goonies and Cape Fear) and some decent new films. The biggest one, of course, is the latest installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, followed up by the Cameron Diaz/Justin Timberlake school comedy, and a fantasy vacation featuring three young starlets. Then we've got three solid documentaries - one about the newspaper business, one about a hip hop supergroup, and one about a legendary rock band - and Kevin Smith's foray into horror. Read on to see if anything will make it to your shelf this week.
