THE HORDE

THE HORDE

If you're up on your 14th century Mongol-vs-Russian history this slow-moving 129 minute historical drama may be worth your while. As for the rest of us who think our absence of relevant historical knowledge can be assuaged by a lot of battle sequences (warning: it does not contain even one) it is a beautifully shot production that looks, feels and sounds period authentic.

PASSION (BLU-RAY)

PASSION  (BLU-R

I want to pretend that the great Brian De Palma never directed this tired, forgettable thriller. But then I remember that he did and I dislike this one even more.

WISH YOU WERE HERE

WISH YOU WERE H

This little-seen, yet fantastic, atmospheric drama is twisty and well-acted. Most importantly, it cuts deep, emotionally, and sticks with you long after its over.

THE LADY (BLU-RAY)

THE LADY (BLU-R

On the surface, it's difficult to believe that this is a Luc Besson film. I've repeatedly read over the cover and the booklet inside, and I still don't see anything that suggests Besson's involvement. This mystery, alone, makes this a must-see in my book.

THE SWEENEY (BLU-RAY)

THE SWEENEY (BL

A great group of actors are on board for this story of a London crime fighting force that promises plenty of action. Here's hoping the story behind the special effects and stuntwork is equally as engaging.

ESCAPE (BLU-RAY)

ESCAPE (BLU-RAY

This could just be the Norwegian, fantasy, Black Plague, action film that we've always been waiting for...or not. What I do know is the cover art couldn't possibly feature a closer look at the lead actor's face, and there are certainly quite a lot of arrows and knives involved.

LIZ & DICK

LIZ & DICK

Exploitive much? Lindsey Lohan brings her tabloid gravitas to a movie picking over the bones of the woman, whose life was the material of tabloid legend. Not very good as a biography, not very good as a movie, this film careens from cringeworthy to boring. For Lohan completists only (or maybe Grant Bowler fans).

FEMME FATALES: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

FEMME FATALES:

I like the premise of this sexy Cinemax anthology quasi-noir series more than I like the actual eps themselves, which is essentially attractive women taking control of various nasty situations, as well as being nude most of the time. They don't call it Skinemax for nothing.

COSMOPOLIS (BLU-RAY)

COSMOPOLIS (BLU

I'm a big fan of David Cronenberg, which makes it doubly hard to admit that Cosmopolis left me dulled and only occasionally attentive. The extras, on the other hand, are fantastic.

WAR OF THE DEAD

This sure seems like an interesting, shockingly original take on the soon-to-be-tired zombie film, but my gut tells me that there won't be much here to like.

WOLF LAKE: THE COMPLETE SERIES

WOLF LAKE: THE

Werewolves. Shapeshifters. That is usually enough to get my interest, but the hook for this set complete series set (nine episodes) of a show dropped after just five episodes were broadcast is the inclusion of the unaired pilot, which shows a path the show could have taken and didn't. Could things have been different?

This is the film that Sean Bean fans have been waiting for, as they finally get to see him take on the action-packed role of a British Secret Service Agent...that isn't named James Bond.

KATT WILLIAMS: KATTPACALYPSE

KATT WILLIAMS:

Kattapacalypse is pretty funny, but ultimately unsatisfying and not worthy of multiple viewings. Katt Williams is a funny dude but his material here is choppy and disjointed. He comes onto the stage like a lion abut by the end is laying down with the lambs.

WORRIED ABOUT THE BOY

While I'm not sure the masses were clamoring for a biopic about the infamous lead singer of 80s Pop group Culture Club, this flick promises to tell us everything we ever wanted to know about Boy George, and then some.

RETURN

RETURN

Linda Cardellini has been laying relatively low since her stint on ER, but, according to buzz surrounding this film's limited theatrical run, she's back with a vengeance. A strong supporting cast sure doesn't diminish my high expectations for this film either.

THE BROKEN TOWER

THE BROKEN TOWE

James Franco went right from a Best Actor Oscar nomination to the director's chair for this true story of Poet, Hart Crane. Here's hoping it's at least a little more engaging than his acting turn as Allen Ginsberg a few years ago.

THE DEVIL'S ROCK

THE DEVIL'S ROC

Don't be fooled by the awesomeness of the cover-art-image-that-doesn't-appear-anywhere-in-the-movie, because The Devil's Rock is still a terrific under-the-radar horror film about Nazis and demons. You like horror? You should really love this.

Highly recommended.

BOMBAY BEACH

Bombay Beach tells the stories of the residents of a once-thriving tourist resort now lost to the world. Director Alma Har'el's film, with its gauzy, dreamlike quality and choreographed sequences is at once beautiful and deeply problematic.
