I Want My DVD: Tuesday, May 17, 2011

We are all about movies whose titles get straight to the point this week.

The Mechanic
I am pretty sure that I was promised a gun made out of guns by the posters for this movie, and considering some of Jason Statham's other films, that shouldn't have been much to ask for. Without that, they could have at least made the movie as dark and disturbing as the Charles Bronson original. As it is, this movie feels like nothing more than filler until Crank 3.

The Rite
We hope this fills the quota for exorcism movies for at least a few years.

The Roommate
You know a movie like this is bad when even the official Amazon.com review pans it. (Also available via Movies on Demand, starting May 24.)

The Other Woman
Last year Natalie Portman was able to make us feel sympathy for skinny dancers in Black Swan, but didn't quite make us feel as sorry for younger mistresses.

Ju-On White Ghost/Black Ghost
Ju-On's English title is The Grudge, but keep calling this film series by its Japanese name so we don't have to think about that Sarah Michelle Gellar train wreck.

Also out this week: Pale Flower and Diabolique.

New to Blu-ray: The Hustler, The Comancheros, and Beverly Hills Cop.
