New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave: An Unknown Adjustment for a Wimpy Kid

Looks like it's time to load up on the action this week. If you can't find something to satisfy that urge, you better check your pulse.

1) Up front, Liam Neeson takes all that pent up aggression he had in Taken and applies it once again in Unknown. Plus Unknown has the added benefit of adding a bit of mystery to the action, actually allowing Neeson to flex a bit more of those acting muscles. Hey, I'm game - I think he's a good actor and allowing him to rough it up a little only makes me that much more intrigued.

2) If you want to enjoy a movie as much as your wife (or girlfriend) then luckily Matt Damon and Emily Blunt are here to liven things up. With The Adjustment Bureau you have a bit of sci-fi, a bit of action and a bit of romance all thrown in together. The concept sounds pretty awesome - a group of shady characters who control the fate of people, and the one couple who constantly thwart their well-laid plans by 'GASP' falling in love! An interesting concept that I hope pans out well on screen.

3) If you prefer your action with a historical twist, then look no further than The Eagle. Channing Tatum plays a Roman looking to restore his family's honor by finding the military standard his father lost on an expedition into the wilds of Britain. While it might not quite achieve epic status, there is bound to be plenty of swords and, if not sandals, a bit of grit underneath that armor.

4) If you would prefer more family-friendly fare, not need to fear - that's covered too. After showing up Sucker Punch at the box office, don't underestimate Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules. I can't say I saw the first one, nor do I have any real desire to watch it anytime soon but as far as decent series go for a younger audience, this is probably not too bad to sit through.

5) Finally, for straight-up comedy, Ed Helms and motley crew including John C. Reilly, Sigourney Weaver, Rob Corddry and Anne Heche show the lighter side of business conventions in Cedar Rapids. The cover itself it brilliant - Ed Helms goofy face already brings a smile to my face. While The Hangover Part II may have got all the attention, I think this has as good of, if not better, chance to be funny.

On the Blu-Ray front, things are led by The Island, which was a box office disappointment. Plus, I heard a rumor that Scarlett Johansson offered to go topless for the one sex scene, but Michael Bay turned her down to keep a PG-13 rating... and I will never forgive him. Still, the movie itself isn't a complete failure - well, compared to say Cutthroat Island or Waterworld but considering the caliber of talent involved, it should have been much better. The only other Blu-Ray of note is the minor Jackie Chan film The Medallion, which I would only check out if you're a die hard fan of the man.

I can't catch them all, but you sure can: just visit the FilmCrave New DVD Releases and FilmCrave New Blu-Ray Releases pages today.
