THIS WEEK'S MOVIE RELEASES:


There's four surprisingly good thrillers hitting the shelves this week, headed up by the sleeper "Side Effects," directed by the prolific Steven Soderbergh. The film starts out as a prosaic psychological thriller about a young woman, Emily (Rooney Mara), who begins suffering from terrifying anxiety attacks and bouts of sleepwalking after her husband (Channing Tatum) is released from prison. She turns to psychiatrist Dr. Banks (Jude Law) for help, but when Banks prescribes an Rooney Mara is one of the top thrillers of 2013, Side Effects. experimental drug, the side effects have chilling and deadly consequences, putting the doctor on the hot seat. From this point on, the film becomes a deluxe mystery-thriller as Banks becomes a detective to uncover the motives behind a conspiracy to discredit his name. There's plenty of unexpected twists and turns as Side Effects winds down towards its unexpected ending. Also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones as a rival shrink.

Next up is "The Last Stand," notable for the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger to the big screen in a starring role, and for the first English-language film by South Korean director Jee-woon Kim, who gave us the nasty but fantastic gore-mystery-thrillers "A Tale of Two Sisters" and "I Saw the Devil" and the unreleased gangster drama "A Bittersweet Life." Many U.S. debuts for foreign directors aren't auspicious, and this one falls into that category. It revolves around the escape of a vicious drug kingpin from an FBI prisoner convoy in Las Vegas who -- with an army of henchmen packing as much firepower as a small country -- heads south to the U.S.-Mexico border. No one can stop him -- except for the obstinate Sheriff of the only town that stands between the kingpin and freedom: Ray Owens (Arnold Schwarzenegger), who gathers his small ragtag police force to stop the bad guys, setting the stage for a classic showdown. It's predictable and fun, but certainly not as stylish as the director's previous outings. Co-stars Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Rodrigo Santoro, Jaimie Alexander, Luis Guzman, Eduardo Noriega, Peter Stormare, Zach Gilford and Genesis Rodriguez.

"Beautiful Creatures" is a supernatural love story set in the South, about two star-crossed lovers: Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich), a young man longing to escape his small town, and Lena (Alice Englert), a mysterious new girl who, it turns out, is a "caster" who, on her 16th birthday, either goes over to the good or bad side of witchcraft. Together they uncover the dark secrets of their respective families, their history and their town. It's gothic-teen-romance along the lines of "The Twilight Saga" but brought to a higher level by a pair of British stalwarts -- Jeremy Irons and Emma Thompson -- who thoroughly enjoy their turns before the camera. Based on the best-selling book (and book series) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Directed by Richard LaGravenese and also starring Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum, Thomas Mann and Eileen Atkins.

Jason Statham in one of the top action films of 2013, Parker "Parker" is a by-the-book action-thriller starring Jason Statham as Parker, a professional thief who lives by a personal code of ethics: Don't steal from people who can't afford it and don't hurt people who don't deserve it. When his crew double crosses him after their latest heist, steals his stash, and leaves him for dead, Parker tracks them to Palm Beach, playground of the rich and famous, where he evens the score. Along the way he takes on an unlikely partner, Leslie (Jennifer Lopez), a savvy insider who's short on cash, but big on looks, smarts and ambition. It's pretty predictable but it's always fun to watch Statham smash heads and Lopez strut her stuff. Based on the novel "Flashfire," one of the series of bestselling novels by Donald E. Westlake (under the pen name of Richard Stark). Directed by Taylor Hackford and co-starring Nick Nolte, Michael Chiklis, Clifton Collins Jr., Wendell Pierce, Micah Hauptman, Patti LuPone, Emma Booth and Bobby Cannavale.

Also this week: "Stand Up Guys," a tough but touching action comedy about retired gangsters who reunite for an epic night together after one of them is released from prison for taking a fall for one of his criminal associates. A lot of grit and talk and short on meat. Stars Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin.

THIS WEEK'S BEST BETS:


With Summer on it's way (Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner), looks like the studios are giving us a plethora of viewing choices to keep us out of the hot, blazing sun. First up is a picture that was hotter off the screen than on: "Cleopatra" (1963), directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and starring Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Rex Harrison, Hume Cronyn, Cesare Danova, Martin Landau and Roddy McDowall. This two-disc 50th Anniversary Blu-ray edition features the 243-minute premiere version of the film -- meticulously restored -- with never-before-seen missing footage. A limited edition comes packed in a full-color book featuring rare images from the making of the film. The historical epic shot in 70mm was the highest Cleopatra 50th Anniversary Edition DVD Cover grossing film of 1963, bringing in more than $24 million in its initial release ... but the film cost an unprecedented $42 million to make (equivalent to over $300 million today) and nearly bankrupted 20th Century Fox. In addition to elaborate sets and costumes, production delays and the relocation of principal filming from London to Rome added to the skyrocketing budget. A very public love affair between Taylor and Burton that blossomed during the three-year production meant that there was as much romance and intrigue off-screen as on-screen. The film later won four Academy Awards, and was nominated for five more, including Best Picture. Extras include "Cleopatra Through The Ages: A Cultural History"; "Cleopatra's" missing footage; "Fox Movie Channel presents Fox Legacy With Tom Rothman"; commentary with Chris Mankiewicz, Tom Mankiewicz, Martin Landau and Jack Brodsky (author of a book "The Cleopatra Papers"); "The Cleopatra Papers: A Private Correspondence"; "Cleopatra: The Film That Changed Hollywood"; "The Fourth Star of Cleopatra"; Fox Movietone News: archival footage of the New York premiere, archival footage of the Hollywood premiere; trailers. From Fox.

At the other end of the spectrum is "Medium Cool" (1969), famed cinematographer Haskell Wexler's take on the counter-cultural and political revolutions of the 1960s. It's 1968, and with the whole world watching the social upheaval in the U.S., Wexler decided to make a film about what the hell was going on. His debut feature, "Medium Cool," plunges us into that moment. With its mix of scripted fiction and seat-of-the-pants documentary technique, this story of the working world and romantic life of a television cameraman (Robert Forster) is a visceral, lasting cinematic snapshot Medium Cool Criterion Collection Blu-Ray Cover of the era, climaxing with an extended sequence shot right in the middle of the riots surrounding the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. An inventive commentary on the pleasures and dangers of wielding a camera, "Medium Cool" is as prescient a political film as Hollywood has ever produced. In a new 4K digital restoration, approved by Wexler, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition. Extras include two audio commentaries, one featuring Wexler, actor Marianna Hill, and editor Paul Golding, the other featuring historian Paul Cronin; a new interview with Wexler; "Look Out Haskell, It's Real!" a 55-minute documentary about the making of "Medium Cool," produced by Cronin and featuring interviews with Wexler, Golding, actors Verna Bloom, Peter Bonerz and Robert Forster, Chicago historian Studs Terkel, and others; excerpts from "Sooner or Later," a documentary by Cronin about Harold Blankenship, who plays the adolescent Harold in the film; original theatrical trailer; a booklet featuring an essay by film critic and programmer Thomas Beard. From The Criterion Collection.

On the lighter side we have everyone's favorite vacation comedy, "National Lampoon's Vacation" (1983) in a 30th Anniversary Blu-ray edition. Relive the crazy adventures of the Griswald family as they head west to visit the "Walley World" amusement park in Los Angeles, along the way encountering crude relatives, a sexy temptress, a dead aunt, and much, much more. Stars Chevy Chase, National Lampoon's Vacation 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Cover Beverly D'Angelo, Imogene Coca, Randy Quaid, Anthony Michael Hall, Dana Barron, Eddie Bracken, Brian Doyle-Murray, James Keach, Eugene Levy, John Candy, Christie Brinkley and Jane Krakowski. Extras include a new A&E Special: "Inside Story: National Lampoon's Vacation"; an introduction by Chevy Chase, Randy Quaid and Matty Simmons; commentary by Harold Ramis, Chevy Chase, Randy Quaid, Anthony Michael Hall, Dana Barron and Matty Simmons. From Warner. The studio will back that release up with the sequel, "Vegas Vacation" (1997), done 14 years later, older but not wiser (and a lot less funnier that the original). Stars Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Marisol Nichols, Ethan Embry and Randy Quaid. And for kitsch buffs, there's the Blu-ray debut of "Captain America: Collector's Edition " (1990), starring Matt Salinger, Ronny Cox, Ned Beatty, Darren McGavin, Michael Nouri and Scott Paulin, from Shout! Factory.

And here's the 800-pound gorilla for the week: Warner Home Video is releasing to Blu-ray the "Ultimate Gangsters Collection: Classics," a five-disc set with four of the greatest gangster films ever, remastered for their Blu-ray debuts. They include "The Public Enemy" and "White Heat" with the legendary performances of James Cagney; "Little Caesar" with Edward G.

BUZZIN' THE 'B'S:


"The ABC's of Death" (2013) is a very interesting experiment in programming filmmaking: Twenty-six directors were each assigned a letter of the alphabet and then given free reign in choosing a word to create a story involving death. The result: Twenty-six provocative, funny, shocking and great ways to die (A is for Apocalypse, E is for Exterminate, H is for Hydro-Electric Diffusion, K is for Klutz, N is for Nuptials, P is for Pressure, S is for Speed, U is for The ABCs of Death Blu-Ray Cover Unearthed, Z is for Zetsumetsu, etc.) Some are gruesome and horrible, some are funny and satirical; their brevity makes each one interesting since none are long enough to get bored and, though there are a lot more misses than hits, its all very watchable. On DVD and Blu-ray form Magnolia Home Entertainment ... "Nightfall" (2012 -- Hong Kong), starring Simon Yam and Nick Cheung, is a grisly thriller that pits a bitter, aging detective against a recently released murderer in a mystery surrounding the killing of a popular opera singer who, it turns out, was a brutal misogynist. What starts out as a clear-cut case of revenge gets murkier and convoluted with the truth becoming harder and harder to uncover as the case progresses. Who is really guilty in the murder? A fast-paced, enjoyable procedural highlighted by swooping visuals and colors. A promising second outing for young director Chow Hin Yeung Roy. On DVD and Blu-ray from Well Go USA ... In "Mold" (2012), a classified government project to create a new weapon to combat the drug cartels -- a fast-growing, genetically engineered strain of mold designed to wipe out coca fields that turns out to prefer feeding on human flesh -- is released in a secret lab, where a group of unsuspecting scientists and military officials are forced to fight their way to safety while trying to contain it before it's unleashed on the world. Stars Edward X. Young, Ardis Mold DVD Cover Campbell, Robert Fattorini, Chris Gentile, Lawrence George and Rick Haymes. From MVD Entertainment ...
