Meryl Streep's 10 Best Movies
She's earned seven Golden Globes, three Oscars, two Emmys, and a Tony nomination -- almost a real-life EGOT! -- and this week, Meryl Streep gets the Total Recall treatment in honor of her appearance as Chief Elder in The Giver, Phillip Noyce's adaptation of the classic Lois Lowry novel about a boy (Brenton Thwaites) whose encounter with a mysterious figure (Jeff Bridges) shakes his understanding of his seemingly idyllic community. From comedies to dramas, Meryl's done it all -- and tried on countless accents along the way. Let's take a look at the best-reviewed films from her illustrious career, Total Recall style!

RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: An Iron Lady and a Sleeping Beauty
We've got a relatively unremarkable week on home video, so the list will be pretty short. To kick things off, we've got Meryl Streep's latest award-winning effort, an artsy erotic drama, an alien invasion flick that got no love, and Werner Herzog's latest documentary (he's so good at those, isn't he?). Wrapping things up are two reissues: the Elia Kazan film that made Brando a star and the complete box set of a strange daytime soap from the '60s. Click through for the full list!

Critics Consensus: Streep Carries The Iron Lady
Happy Holidays! This week at the movies brings no new wide releases, but we've got one hotly anticipated limited -- The Iron Lady, starring Meryl Streep as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. What do the critics have to say? Meryl Streep's playing Margaret Thatcher - sounds like The Iron Lady is bound for awards season glory, right? Well, the critics say Streep does a great job with the role - it's the movie around her that doesn't quite know what it wants to say. The Iron Lady delves into the personal and political life of the pioneering and polarizing British prime minister on the eve of the 1982 Falklands War.
