New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: The American Afterlife
By Chris Kavan - 12/28/10 at 10:10 AM CT
Now that Christmas is over, it looks like the mountain of releases is also taking a break.
1) Out in front is George Clooney as The American. While audiences were taken a bit aback a gloomy Clooney, at least he has some character. Hey, a winning smile and twinkle in your eye can only get you so far - sometimes to have to dig a little deeper.
2) Action gluttons and zombie fans alike will be thrilled with the arrival of Resident Evil: Afterlife. While I think the films have just gotten more and more ridiculous as they've gone along, there is a certain appeal - or maybe I'm just a sucker for any zombies I can get. Anyway, you know I'll be renting this one.
3) If you like gritty movies about today's youth, lucky for you Twelve has come along to give you another fix. Drug dealing and addiction, murder, sex - it's not wholesome at all, but it's probably way too close to the truth than people want to admit.
4) If you want something a bit more uplifting, wrestler John Cena delivers with Legendary. You know "inspirational" and "WWE superstar" usually don't go in the same sentence, but I would take this over most of the other pap so-called wrestling stars have made.
And that's really all she wrote for this week. If you want a complete rundown of all the new releases, visit the FilmCrave New DVD Releases and FilmCrave New Blu-Ray Releases pages today.
