Much Ado About Nothing
Brad Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis reunite for The Hangover Part III, the final installment of the trilogy. One of their crew gets kidnapped leading to another Vegas adventure to recover their friend.
In After Earth, Will and Jaden Smith end up stranded on Earth a millenium after humanity’s forced evacuation, due to a crash landing. As his father is injured, Jaden (Kitai Raige) has to navigate unfamiliar territory and avoid obstacles in order to call for help.
Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing combines his sarcastic wit with the timeless Shakespeare comedy. Two modern-day couples reflect on love and relationships.
Ain’t in It for My Health: A Film About Levon Helm, documents the Band’s founding member’s process as he creates his first studio album in 25 years. The film captures “a living legend before his time was up.” You can read my review here.
Richard Fleischer’s (Soylent Green, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea) 1966 classic Fantastic Voyage is now available on Blu-ray. A diplomat is almost assassinated and a submarine crew is shrunken in order to navigate his bloodstream to save him.
In the same vein, you can also pick up Irwin Allen’s (Lost in Space) Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, about the problems encountered during the diving trials of a new state of the art submarine.
My favourite Monty Python flick is also comin’ to Blu-ray: The Meaning of Life. The film examines all facets of our day to day — eating, sex, working — in the usual Monty Python way.
Two con-men (Michael Caine and Steve Martin) compete for a “winner takes all” prize in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. The French Riviera isn’t big enough for the both of them, so they agree that the one who loses their challenge must leave.
And you can also pick up the first three Ice Age flicks in a nice box set. A perfect rainy day solution if you ask me.
