New DVD Tuesday

Slim pickins this week, friends.

Limitless (2011) - Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Abbie Cornish
A down on his luck writer (Cooper) is given a pill that allows his to access his entire brain. Soon he's raking in the cash and traveling the world until he discovers that the pill comes at a price. Definitely in the running, along with "The Lincoln Lawyer" for "The Shockingly Better Than You Might Think" movie of the year. I like Cooper; he's charismatic and appealing and I rarely dislike what he does. And anyone who's spent a few minutes on this site knows I have genuine love for De Niro and desperately plead for a career renewal. I'll be seeing this at some point in the near future.

Take Me Home Tonight (2011) - Topher Grace, Dan Fogler, Anna Faris
An 80s throwback about...you know what, no one liked this movie. NO ONE. It tanked miserably and has a 28% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. I'm not overly in love with the films of the 80s but if you want an 80s flashback, "Hot Tub Time Machine" would suffice. Or better yet, just skip the middle man and watch an 80s movie!

New to Blu
Amelie (2001) - Audrey Tautou, Mathieu Kassovitz
Chocolat (2000) - Juliette Binoche, Johnny Depp, Judi Dench
Boyz 'N the Hood (1991) - Cuba Gooding, Jr., Lawrence Fishburne
Bridget Jones Diary (2001) - Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (2008) - Asa Butterfield, David Thewlis

Also New
