New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave: Source Code has Ironclad Lock on Dog of a Competition

What if the next eight minutes are the most important eight minutes in your life? Oh, and you just happen to have to keep repeating those same eight minutes over and over and over and over again until you can figure out how to stop something terrible from happening.

1) Well, it that's your idea of how to spend your life(s), there you have Source Code in a nutshell. Well, along with some kind of connection between Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Monaghan - who happen to be on the same train that's about to explode unless our eight-minute man can stop it in time. It seems a strange mix of sci-fi and drama with an air of mystery. While it wouldn't be my absolute "must-watch" movie of the year, it sound intriguing enough that I will check it out.

2) While it didn't quite get the theatrical treatment, I still think Ironclad looks to be a fun medieval romp with some heavy hitters like Paul Giamatti, Brian Cox and Kate Mara amongst others. No sorcery here, just swords; and, I'm hoping, a fair bit of blood. Medieval warfare was brutal; I just hope they get things right.

3) A movie that came and went so fast, you probably didn't even know. That would be Brandon Routh in Dylan Dog. The premise is based on another graphic novel with an interesting story - a supernatural detective dealing with all manner of nightmare creatures in the Louisiana Bayou. Yet with an underwhelming budget and lackluster cast, it's no surprise it tanked.

4) Finally you have every parents technological nightmare Trust in which an online relationship turns dangerous. What kind of parents would even let their 14-year-old daughter into an online relationship? It seems more "Lifetime Original Movie" to me - even with Clive Owen and Kathleen Keener around. I guess you can say I just don't trust this movie to be good.

On the Blu-Ray front, one of my personal all-time favorite comedies is getting the upgrade. That would be the fratastic National Lampoon's Animal House. It doesn't matter how many times I see it, I enjoy it more each time. John Belushi in top form and raunchy fun all around. You can't go wrong. Coming in a close second is the best SNL film ever to grace the big screen - Belushi is back with Dan Aykroyd as The Blues Brothers. Featuring amazing characters and even better music, this is one road trip you'll want to enjoy again and again. A couple of other films of note: if you like disaster films, then you're in luck as Dante's Peak hits this week. While you have to suspend a lot of disbelief, it's passable, though by no means a great disaster flick. Even though I personally loathe this one, I'm mentioning it because other people like it (for whatever reason). That is Red Planet in which you really have to suspend disbelief - too much for my taste - and deal with Val Kilmer and Tom Sizemore. It came out the same year as Mission to Mars - another film about Mars I hate. They should both be sent on a probe straight into the sun.
