New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave: Smurfs with Benefits in 30 Minutes or Less

View Chris Kavan's Profile

It's a Smurf-tacular week for new releases - in fact, you just might get a little blue at all the money you could spend on everything in all-out blitz.

1) Even though I personally find it an affront to my childhood memories, for some reason The Smurfs was incredibly popular at the time of its releases. I blame sugar and uncaring parents. Still, I bet there are a lot of babysitter looking forward to this release - enthrall those kids for a little while anyway.

2) If little blue creatures aren't your scene, maybe Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake can heat things up as Friends with Benefits. I'm never one for romantic comedies, but give something just a little edge and outside of that cliched comfort zone and I would be willing to give it a shot. Plus, if the women get something nice to look at, it's good to have the reaction on the guys' side of things as well.

3) If you're going the comedy route, nothing says hilarity like a life-threatening situation - 30 Minutes or Less is based on an actual event (that didn't turn out so funny) but made into a slapstick comedy. I have a feeling this will turn out to be just another middle-of-the-road, a few chuckles here-and-there kind of comedy, but I like Jesse Eisenberg, Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari, so more power to them.

4) If you want something that truly a visual feast for the eyes then Werner Herzog's Cave of Forgotten Dreams should not me missed. This film is actually a very good case for 3D, as even Blu-Ray might not be enough to give this spectacular film justice. For the right audience, this may be the movie of the year.

5) If 30 Minutes of Less just isn't a zany enough comedy for you, why not spend some quality time with Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, in which a group of country bumpkins are mistaken for backwoods killers by a group of preppy teens and then a bunch of them wind up dead through a series of inane accidents blamed on our two "heroes". It sounds extremely stupid, but for some reason I am intrigued. I may just have to rent this some day.

6) If you still haven't quite had your fill of comedy, then Paul Rudd is here to portray the ultimate laid-back dude in Our Idiot Brother. I think he plays it a bit too laid back for my taste. I much prefer it when Rudd does his usual shtick, and doesn't get too hippy-dippy on me.

7) Finally, if you just must go with a sap-tastic romance, then I leave you with One Day. I personally have nothing against Anne Hatheway and Jim Sturgess but this is exactly the type of film I avoid at all costs simply because the premise makes me want to gag. I'll leave this one to women who like the weep and the men stuck with them.

After all that, there aren't really any Blu-Ray only movies of note coming out other then the films mentioned above. Don't worry, I'm sure they'll make up for it in the coming weeks.
