The DVDs to Crave This Week: Post Apocalyptic Blues and Revolting Youth

View Chris Kavan's Profile

It's not such a bad week for movie fans. I know there are at least films worth watching that are coming out.

Top of my list: The Book of Eli, while not Denzel's greatest effort, it is still a pretty good action flick. Watch it for Gary Oldman chewing the scenery as the villain - not since The 5th Element has he been so deliciously evil. Best scene - watch for the cameo of Harry Potter vets Michael Gambon and Frances de la Tour as a couple in the middle of nowhere who invite the heroes in for tea. Worth to watch the film for that scene alone. While the special features are somewhat slim, you do get the digital graphic novel Lost Tales (chapter 1) as a teaser.

On the lighter front is Youth in Revolt. While I haven't seen this yet, it is one I would be interested in. I realize there is a Cera backlash building, but dang if I don't like him in just about everything else. Sure, he plays pretty much the same character over and over again, but it fits him perfectly so why mess with a good thing? Plus you get a commentary from Cera (oh, and the director), so it's got that going for it.

Also coming out is the romantic comedy When In Rome. Granted, you would have to either threaten me or offer up a great incentive (wink, wink) for me to sit through this one. I think Kristen Bell is cute as a button, but I refuse to watch this unless certain conditions are met (see above). Alcohol may have to be involved as well.

On the Blu-Ray front it's cult classic fun all around. I would be remiss if I didn't include the guiltiest of guilty pleasures: the 15th Anniversary of Showgirls. Do you really need to see this in HD glory? I guess that depends on how deep your love for trash runs. Get the right group of people together, and you'll have a party ready to go.

Another cult favorite is the Liam Neeson/Sam Raimi collaboration Darkman. While not up to heights of Evil Dead, Darkman was always a nice fringe anti-hero film. It's not on everyone's radar, so I highly recommend checking it out, especially if you're a fan of Raimi's work.
