This Week On DVD and Blu-ray: January 29, 2013

The Duellists [Blu-ray]
I first saw Ridley Scott’s The Duellists last April and I enjoyed it enough to write up a right here, but there are some spoilers so be warned.

Seven Psychopaths

I found this movie to be more about telling jokes than telling a story. As a result, I thought it was funny yet tedious. That said, I saw this as one of my favorite Christopher Walken performances ever and will still await anything writer/director Martin McDonagh has up his sleeve. You can read my review from the Toronto Film Festival here.

Buy Seven Psychopaths


Paranormal Activity 4

I liked it and yet, I’m not really sure any of these Paranormal Activity films are really worth buying. As of right now the second and third films are available on NetFlix Instant and I’m sure this one will be soon enough. You can read my full theatrical review here.

Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey Season 3
Everyone loves the “Downton Abbey”. I haven’t seen a second of it, but for those of you that love it… here it is, season three.

Hotel Transylvania

I really had no desire to see this, so I haven’t.

The Awakening

The fact it stars Rebecca Hall has me interested and a 69% rating at RottenTomatoes tells me this thriller may be worth a look.


The Cold Light of Day

Alternatively, I have heard this is one of the worst movies of the last 12 months.
