I Want My DVD: Tuesday, July 13, 2010

We can see the wedding announcement now: "Chloe Greenberg." A match made in heaven.

Chloe
Either you're renting this movie for the complex interpersonal politics involved as a woman comes to distrust her husband and hires a prostitute to test him who then proceeds to threaten the integrity of her family unit, or you're renting it to watch Julianne Moore and Amanda Seyfried make out. Those are pretty much the two schools.

Greenberg
Ben Stiller won acclaim for playing a housesitter who recently suffered a nervous breakdown in this Noah Baumbach film. Fans of The Squid and the Whale and Margot at the Wedding know what to expect.

The Bounty Hunter
What sucks the most about this movie is that someday, a really kick-ass movie about bounty hunting will come along, and they won't be able to call it The Bounty Hunter. Well, they could, but who would want to after Jennifer Aniston crapped all over it? Hell, even that Dog guy is thinking about calling himself something else now. It just would have been nice to have the option, is what I'm saying. (Also available via Movies on Demand.)

Our Family Wedding
What do you say about a movie where Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker plays the father of the groom who hilariously clashes with the father of the bride, played by Carlos Mencia? Nothing. You say nothing about that movie. Just sweep it under the rug. (Also available via Movies on Demand.)

The Greatest
"Hey, how was that movie you rented last night?"
"Which one?"
"The one with Pierce Brosnan and Susan Sarandon and Carey Mulligan?"
"The Greatest?"
"Wow! That good, huh? Okay, I'm renting it now. Later!"
"No, that's just the name of the--!" [Dial tone. End scene.]

Saint John of Las Vegas
Steve Buscemi plays an insurance investigator in Albuquerque who has to return to Sin City for his job, and decides to face his demons. Luckily, those demons are played by John Cho, Tim Blake Nelson, Romany Malco, Sarah Silverman and Peter Dinklage. Best. Demons. Ever.

Also out this week:
Selling Hitler In the latest Hitler comedy, someone is faking Der Fuehrer's diaries and selling them. Das ist hysterical!
Formosa Betrayed Congratulations, James Van Der Beek -- you are in the most boringly titled spy movie ever made.
Terribly Happy A Danish No Country for Old Men? Sounds like something is awesome in Denmark.
The Girl By the Lake What's Valeria Golino doing nowadays? Appearing in critically acclaimed Italian movies.
Middle of Nowhere Susan Sarandon again, as a beauty pageant mom who blows her other daughter's college fund on pageants.
How to Make Love to a Woman Just rip it off like a band-aid, Ian Somerhalder. Someday, no one will remember you were in this movie.
Diary of a Nymphomaniac Thankfully not a companion piece to How to Make Love to a Woman. This one's French!

On Demand: Valhalla Rising
Mads Mikkelsen plays an unbeatable, one-eyed pit fighter who may or may not be Odin, and may or may not join a band of Crusaders traveling to the Holy Land. This movie may or may not be totally insane. (Available via IFC On Demand and in theaters June 16)
