New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: Tangled Up in Black (Swan)

View Chris Kavan's Profile

While there are a wide array of titles to choose from, there is no doubt that two rise above the crowd:

1) From director Darren Aronofsky comes Black Swan. I've been a fan of Aronofsky ever since he broke into the scene, and this movie is no exception. Only he could transform ballet into something so dark and dangerous. Plus, Natalie Portman deservedly won her Oscar for her tour-de-force performance as Nina, the perfect White Swan who must decide how to bring her Black Swan out of depths of her mind and soul. One I recommend.

2) On the lighter side of things, Disney tackles another classic fairy tale with Tangled - this time putting a twist on the Rapunzel story. I eventually come around to seeing pretty much every Disney film at some point in time, and this will be no different. Plus, it looks like this princess has a little attitude - and who doesn't like a good adventure now and then, especially when Zachary Levi is along for the ride.

3) The anime fan in me has been anticipating the release of Evangelion: 2.22 You Can [Not] Advance ever since I was impressed by the original film's successful reboot. So much so that I actually chose the Blu-Ray over the DVD version - a rare occurrence coming form me. If you're in any way, shape or form interested in anime, this is one film you should not pass up.

4) In the ripped-from-the-headlines drama department comes Fair Game, a movie based on CIA operative Valerie Plame, whose outing as an agent following her husband's critique of war in Iraq was a scandal that not only ended her career, but could have threatened her life. I suppose your enjoyment (or anger) at this film will be attributed to your political bent.

5) Finally, if you're in the mood for a little mystery, then curl up next to Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst as they explore All Good Things. This is also inspired by a true story about a wealthy man whose wife goes missing - and although suspected, she was never found and no charges brought against him. Sounds intriguing enough for a night when nothing's on.

On the Blu-Ray front, the cry of "Let my people go!" will be clearer than ever as The Ten Commandments comes to Blu-Ray. Or, if you're feeling really biblical, you could splurge on the Limited Edition set (100,000 copies only!) of the film, including the original 1923 film on Blu-Ray, a commemorative 50-page booklet and original 1956 souvenir program along with other assorted vault goodies. If you haven't gotten your fill of religion, you can also pick up King of Kings and really get your blood flowing. Moses and Christ? I guess the only word to describe it is... heavenly.

If Charlton Heston as Moses isn't your cup of tea, perhaps you prefer him in another iconic role in Soylent Green. Remember, if there's a food shortage in the future, maybe it's best not to look into the mystery meat. Two other films worth mentioning is the 80s staple Teen Wolf, in which things get a little hairy for Michael J. Fox and also Scream, in which self-referential horror has never been done better. The sequels are also available, but we know the first one is still the best.

There are plenty of other great movies coming out, check them out on the FilmCrave New DVD Releases and FilmCrave New Blu-Ray Releases pages today.
