If you're interested, just click here to pick it up. There's also an interesting ten-film John Wayne DVD collection featured in the "Even More" section of today's post.
Underworld: Awakening I like this film and they sent me the Blu-ray, but I haven't yet had a chance to watch it. All the Underworld films starring Kate Beckinsale I find quite fun. It's big, loud and dumb fun as far as I'm concerned and I don't really know if I make a special exception for this franchise over others, but based on how this one ends I do hope they go forward with one more, but as Underworld: Rise of the Lycans proved, »

DVD Playhouse – May 2012
By Allen Gardner
Shame (20th Century Fox) Director Steve McQueen’s harrowing portrait of a Manhattan sex addict (Michael Fassbender, in the year’s most riveting performance) whose psyche goes into overload when his equally-troubled sister (Carey Mulligan) visits unexpectedly. Exquisitely-made on every level, save for the screenplay, which makes its point after about thirty minutes. While it tries hard to be a modern-day Last Tango in Paris, this fatal flaw makes it fall somewhat short. The much- ballyhooed sex scenes and frontal nudity are the least-interesting things about the film, incidentally, which is still a must-see for discriminating adults who seek out challenging material. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Featurettes. Widescreen. Dolby and DTS-hd 5.1 surround.

Moviefone's Blu-ray of the Week "Gremlins 2: The New Batch" What's It About? Billy Peltzer and Gizmo wind up in New York City, where a Donald Trump-like mogul tries to experiment on the Mogwai, inadvertently unleashing a whole new gang of even more advanced gremlins. See It Because: One of the most underrated sequels of all time gets the hi-def Blu-ray treatment. Director Joe Dante turns the whole affair into a bizarre "Looney Tunes" parody of the first "Gremlins," and the end result is one of the most clever dark comedies of the past 25 years. Watch a Deleted Scene from "Gremlins 2: The New Batch" Moviefone's New Release of the Week "Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie" What's It About? Um... well... Tim and Eric are given a billion dollars to make a movie by Robert Loggia, but they waste it, so they have to go on the run. »
