New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave: Take Me Home Tonight? The Possibilities are Limitless

View Chris Kavan's Profile

While it's not the strongest week for releases, you might find a few worth watching, especially in the Blu-Ray department.

1) Leading things off this week is Bradley Cooper, finding out what it's like when you go on the mother of all drug benders, as he takes the starring role in Limitless. He goes from loser to ultimate master of the universe thanks to a drug that unlocks 100% of the brain's function. Cooper is pretty much perfect for the role - he can go from smarmy bastard to charming nice guy in the blink of his perfectly-blue eyes. Plus you have Robert De Niro too. It will get a rental out of me just from the idea alone, I just hope Cooper can deliver.

2) Another entry in the "remember the 80s", Topher Grace, Anna Farris and Dan Fogler try to get to the mood right in Take Me Home Tonight. Despite a bitchin' soundtrack, I'm guessing this is just another by-the-books comedy but I enjoyed Hot Tub Time Machine a lot more than I was expecting, so I'll at least give it a shot, though my expectations are pretty low.

3) The only other new film of note is the French comedy Potiche. This is well outside my comfort zone of films, but it looks like it does have an impressive line-up of actors: Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu and Karin Viard to name a few. If this sounds like something you would enjoy, by all means, check it out.

There are a few big hitters for Blu-Ray. A movie that is born to be seen in high definition thanks to the variety of colors that pop and some amazing visuals is the precocious Amélie. I know I'm contradicting myself saying I don't watch French comedies, but I finally watched it for the first time this year and I loved it. Audrey Tautou is just perfectly cast - a strange, wonderful little film. For a more gritty, urban experience you can also find Boyz 'N The Hood, which may show some signs of age, but still has an impact. Finally, fans of romance can enjoy the one-two punch of Chocolat and Bridget Jones's Diary. Excuse me while I gag - but, hey, not my style. Feel free to enjoy to your hearts content.

There are plenty more films to explore, just check out the FilmCrave New DVD Releases and FilmCrave New Blu-Ray Releases pages today.
