Old Dogs

Like clockwork, I’m back with another round of high definition goodness with This Week in Blu-ray. It’s a fairly light week, as several major Oscar nominees seek to capture your home video dollars by piggybacking onto the hype from this past Sunday’s ceremony. We’ve also got a few awful films that I won’t hesitate to smack around a bit, mostly because they made me feel as if my time was completely worthless.

Rob Hunter loves movies. He also loves flying. These two joys come together in the form of cash money payments that he receives every week and immediately uses to buy more DVDs. This week we go Up In the Air with The Boondock Saints, Matt Houston, and some terribly unfunny Old Dogs.

Hello again movie fans! You may have noticed that there was no Movie Watcher’s Guide to October. There are several completely legitimate reasons for this, but instead of boring you with details please allow me to give a quick recap of the month’s box-office releases… The Invention of Lying, Whip It, Amelia, Astro Boy, Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, and Saw VI all pretty much bombed, while Zombieland, Couples Retreat, Law Abiding Citizen, Where the Wild Things Are, and Paranormal Activity all did fair to brisk business. There, now you’re caught up through October. On to November! November 6th The Box Who did it? Directed and written by Richard Kelly; starring Cameron Diaz, James Marsden, Frank Langella What is it? A young couple receives a mysterious box containing only a button and a note. Press the button and two things will happen… one, they’ll receive $1 million dollars, and two, someone in the world will die. Will they press the button? Duh… What about it? Kelly has taken a classic short story by Richard Matheson (“Button, Button”), which was previously made into an episode of “The Twilight Zone,” and turned it into a movie. It’s not always a wise move to stretch something from a much shorter medium to a feature film, and early reviews (like the one at Gone Elsewhere) have been fair to meh about it which doesn’t bode too well for the movie. Or for Kelly… who some are starting to suspect was nothing but lucky with his debut film, Donnie Darko. Watch […]
