This Week On DVD and Blu-ray: August 31, 2010

Harry Brown
I have heard a lot of good things about this movie and Caine’s performance, but I have not yet had a chance to see it. Over at RottenTomatoes the “Cream of the Crop” critics only give it a 56% rating, but while their opinion of the film may be a little down it seems there is a general consensus concerning Caine’s performance. Short of it… I’ve got it in the Netflix queue.

Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too?
Any Tyler Perry fans in the crowd? Any of you big enough fans to fork over some money for his films on DVD and/or Blu-ray?

Red Riding Trilogy
It’s obviously a weak week for new releases and this is the only one of the bunch I’ve featured that I’ve actually seen and reviewed. Broken up into three films directed by Julian Jarrold, James Marsh and Anand Tucker the only satisfying installment in this trilogy is the first one titled 1974, directed by Jarrold and featuring a performance by Andrew Garfield which I said in my review “reminds me a lot of a young Malcolm McDowell.” Fortunately for Netflix fans, you don’t have to worry about buying these before trying them as all three are available on Netflix Instant Play in high-definition. Give ’em a chance at the very least for the first film in the trilogy and then see what you think of the next two.
