RT on DVD: 70 More Minutes of The Incredible Hulk on Blu-Ray??
Plus an exclusive clip from next week's Charlie Bartlett.
Well, it's no How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days; at least that contrived romantic comedy topped 40% on the Tomatometer. That said, Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey seem equally at home in this awful breezer -- she in clichéd rom-com territory, he without his shirt on.
One by-the-numbers behind-the-scenes featurette and a gag reel means there's hardly any reward for making it through the movie itself.
Be Kind Rewind
Michel Gondry is a wunderkind; sometimes, that wonderment is more accessible (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) than others (The Science of Sleep). His latest, an ode to communal movie-loving, is on the latter end of the spectrum, combining his trademark wackiness with saccharine sincerity -- and the scene-chewing antics of Jack Black.
If you're iffy about the film, the bonus menu isn't going to convince you to give Be Kind Rewind a shot. With only two features on the disc (And since when does a single trailer constitute a "feature"?) we recommend waiting for the inevitable special edition. Or "swede" your own version of the film and have more fun in the process!
Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins
Martin Lawrence continues in his quest to become the most commercially viable, yet critically derided comic actor known to man with a movie that proves you can go home again...with inane slapstick, shots to the groin, and dogs having sex. (Larry the Cable Guy would give Lawrence some tough competition, if only his movies actually made money.)
A wealth of bonus materials abound, including cast interviews, behind-the-scenes featurettes, a director commentary by writer-director Malcolm D. Lee (cousin to Spike), and more.
4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days
Word on the festival circuit last year had cinephiles buzzing one distinct catchphrase: have you seen the Romanian abortion movie? But this tense, gripping, and fearlessly acted drama about two women trying to arrange the illicit operation in 1987 Communist Romania is far more powerful and moving than any such reduction can convey. Shockingly passed over at the Oscars, the multiple award-winning 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days is a must-see.
The disc includes a 16-minute making-of featurette and an interview with writer-director Cristian Mungiu and his cinematographer, Oleg Mutu.
'Til next week, happy viewing!
