for Sept 5 DVDs
  • ALL ABOUT STEVE

    Sandra Bullock as a rather obnoxious woman looking for love with Brad (The Hangover) Cooper.
  • GAMER

    Gerard Butler in a near-future world where online games are fatal.
  • EXTRACT

    Mike Judge (Beavis & Butthead) directs Jason Bateman as a frustrated husband who tries to make his wife cheat first so he can do so with a clear conscience.
  • 1. STATE OF PLAY:

    Russell Crowe is a crusty old-fashioned print journalist embroiled in a story of a politician’s infidelity and a high-profile murder in Washington, DC, while Rachel McAdams is the young upstart journalist who is an internet blogger – past meets future as they work on this story together.  Great newspaper yarn – Helen Mirren is outstanding as the paper’s publisher – great cast, super story! http://www.dvdunlocker.com/movies/ Rated PG.

  • 2. EARTH:

    James Earl Jones (the voice of CNN) is the narrator of this Disneynature film that profiles several animal families (from polar bears to dolphins) in this tribute to Earth Day and a spectacular look at our planet … except that many who paid to see this were disappointed because there was nothing here that kids hadn’t seen on Discovery Channel many times over.  The DVD price is easier to handle than the theatre price on this one. Rated G.   

  • 3. ROAD OF NO RETURN:

    Good cast of tough guys here as Michael Madsen and David Carradine head up a tough group of hitmen who are secretly working for law authorities on a big drug bust.  Or are they?  Well, maybe yes, maybe no in this taught crime thriller. Rated 14A.

  • 4. STATE OF PLAY:

    Brad Pitt was originally pegged to star in this one but had to bow out when the writer’s strike occurred and made rewrites impossible to meet his time line.  So we’re “stuck” with Russell Crowe.
ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN (1976): 
Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford are superb as Woodward and Bernstein in the classic tale of Watergate.  Holds up to this day as a great gripper!
  • THE FINAL DESTINATION

    Not often do I laugh out loud during a horror movie, but this one has more unintentional laughs than cloudburst at an outdoor wedding – and in 3D yet.  It works hard to have the blood and guts spew … but it’s funny!  I liked it fine, but short at 82 minutes, mercifully!
  • HALLOWEEN II

    Opposite for Rob Zombie’s gut-spiller which is just ugly … but in a good way.
