This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. Salt Salt barrels forward at a relentless pace, and stops only for the most perfunctory of emotional beats. You know they're emotional beats because somber music plays in the background while characters gaze longingly at each other. 30 seconds of that, and it's back to more running, car hopping and violently-inflicted bodily injury. None of the action is especially impressive or inspired, but what it lacks in polish it makes up for in sheer volume. The mystery of Evelyn Salt is meant to keep the audience on their toes as the action unfolds, but it's all so ludicrous and predictable; if there is a compelling mystery at the core of Salt, it's learning just how much casual ass-kickery »

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. Exit Through The Gift Shop Describing the engrossing, frequently hilarious Banksy-directed Exit Through the Gift Shop as one of the best story-driven documentaries I've ever seen would almost certainly be misleading, as its veracity has been a point of contention since its Sundance premiere. To delve into the topic further would require detailing plot details that I'd be remiss to give away, so I'll just say this: The strength of the film is that whether or not it's authentic doesn't matter. The ultimate take-away from the picture comes from a place of complete truth, and that truth only resonates in the way that it does because the story was told in this form. Not only does »

When I was a kid, I wanted to belong to a group like The Goonies. Like most creative types, I was an outsider, so the film and characters spoke to me. Smartly, there was one of every type to make all sorts of misfits feel at home. Does it stand the test of time? Can you go home again? Find out after the jump:
The Goonies follows a group of kids on a great adventure, but it springs from something that rings true in today’s world (and global economy). Mikey and Brand, two brothers, are going to have to say goodbye to their home in Astoria as they’re about to be foreclosed on so a country club can be built. Mikey’s gang of friends assembles to spend some quality time with them: Mouth, the prankster, Data the inventor and Chunk, the resident fatass (long before Cartman). While »
The troubled starlet was to make her comeback playing the famous porn star in "Inferno," but director Matthew Wilder told E! Online he could no longer wait for Lohan as she continues her treatment at the Betty Ford clinic.
"We are withdrawing our offer from Lindsay Lohan," Wilder said. "We are currently in negotiations [with another actress] and working out the legalities of bringing her onboard. »
Writer Shane Black’s absence provides this third film in the franchise with a major headache. Widely recognised as the worst of the four movies (although, to be fair, some would say that of the fourth), Lethal Weapon 3 suffers from an over-reliance on comedy, rather than letting the action take the brunt of the plot, and I can’t help but feel that’s down to Black’s lack of involvement in the story.
He might be credited as a writer for the characters, but the plot is all down to Jeffrey Boam and Robert Mark Kamen, and while each has form (The Lost Boys, Transporter to name but two of their past output). it doesn’t shine through here.
Editor's Note: Unfortunately this promotion has expired and the service has reverted to trade-ins only for Warner Brother titles. DVDs from other studios are no longer accepted - hopefully they'll do this again soon though.
Warner Brothers' push to have consumers fully embrace the Blu-ray format started in April of last year when they announced their Red2Blu program, which allowed anyone who'd purchased a WB title on HD-DVD to exchange it with about $5 per disc and they'd receive the exact same title on Blu-ray. For anyone who'd sunk some cash in the defunct HD-DVD format it was a pretty nice deal; unfortunately other studios never jumped on board with quite the same gusto.
Then, at about this time last year, Warner Brothers announced an addition to the Blu-ray exchange concept: they put out a selection of 55 titles which, if you owned the DVD version, could be exchanged for the »

One of the big elements of the King Arthur/ Merlin mythology is that the legendary wizard ages backwards. He certainly seems to be nearly immortal in pop cultural terms, because he keeps popping up on TV shows, and in films every now again, most recently in the BBC series. Now Working Title thinks he could work his magic on the big screen once again, conjuring up a pitch from writer Jay Basu that gives the character a twist. Ready for this one? Merlin… In the modern world! Oh, don’t look like that! Yes, there aren’t that many versions of the character that tried work in a contemporary setting (the Heat Vision blog digs up the example of short-lived Sitcom Mr Merlin, which saw The Lost Boys’ Barnard Hughes as the wizard working as a mechanic in 1980s San Francisco), and the more recent, Merlin-influenced take on The Sorcerer »
Talking to MovieWebb, Feldman seems to be the sole figure (particularly after the death of previous co-star Corey Haim earlier this year) spearheading the return of the franchise and after only a two year gap between ‘Thirst’ and the first sequel (Lost Boys: The Tribe) he’s interesting in jumping aboard again if the market for yet another sequel is there.
“Next time around hopefully we can incorporate even more stuff that I was looking to get in. I definitely don’t want to be going backwards so I want to make sure that each time we do it, if we are going to do it again, its got to be bigger and better than the last one.”
Feldman should focus his energy »

With Trespass set to wrap its nine-week shoot in Shreveport, Louisiana this weekend, we have a slew of new images from the film as well as quotes from Nicolas Cage, Nicole Kidman, and director Joel Schumacher to share with you today. For those in the dark about the thriller, Trespass takes place over the course of one day and tells the story of a wealthy husband and wife (Cage & Kidman) who fall victim to a home invasion. In addition to Cage and Kidman, the film also stars Cam Gigandet, Ben Mendelsohn, Jordana Spiro, and Liana Liberato. It is currently looking at a 2011 release.
While it’s no secret that Schumacher has put out some clunkers in the past (I’m mostly looking at you, “Nipple Batman,” although I’ve heard less than stellar things about Twelve as well), it is equally true that the director has been responsible for solid »

With Halloween right around the corner and vampires being all the rage this year, is it any wonder why I have vampires on the brain? So without further ado, here is Tmp’s roster for the 10 best movie vampires of all time!
#10 - Edward Cullen and the vampires of the Twilight Saga
With Eclipse about to be released on DVD and Blu Ray, Edward Cullen and the Twilight gang just had to make the list. With their vegetarian diet and their diamond studded, dazzling-in-the-sun skin, these vampires certainly gave us a lot to talk about. Edward Cullen in particular made females swoon with delight all over the globe with his brooding good looks and his undying and fervent love for the awkward Bella Swan. Even this humble writer was not immune to his charms. Talk about a vampire dream come true.
#9 – Marlow and the vampires from 30 Days of Night
Absolutely terrifying. »

I know what you’re thinking: great, he’s going to trash Twilight. Well you’re right, but I’m going to explain why it’s offensive and how the 80’s had a solution. So in honor of Halloween, we’re taking a brief look at the history of the Vampire in cinema.
The traditional vampire begins with Nosferatu (Dracula with a different name, pictured right) and ends with the gory Hammer Films with Christopher Lee. The vampire here often lived in Eastern Europe around the 1800’s and features all the traits we come to think of from burned by sunlight to burned by anything holy. Bela Lugosi became the definitive vampire actor then and now.
During the 80’s a decision was made to stop having vampires be exclusive to period pieces and make a modern day vampire. The two most memorable films were The Lost Boys »

Vampire Lovers; Screen’s Seductive Creatures of the Night
Vampire Lovers, now your probably thinking why in the world am I reviewing a book with a title like that. Well my friends titles can be deceiving.
In Gavin Baddeley’s Vampire Lovers, he documents the history of the sexiest vampires in film and TV.
If you are a lover of the vampire genre this is a must for your collection. From the newest vampire phenomenons like Twilight and True Blood, to the classics like Dark Shadows, The Lost Boys, Christopher Lee and Bela Lugosi, Mr. Baddeley gives every vampire lover something to like in this book.
Mr. Baddeley did his homework, this is a meticulously researched and informative book. I learned more about Twilight in it’s few short pages than I would have cared to. Not that, that is a bad thing, it gives me a different perspective on the newest sparkly vampire fad. »

Lost Boys: The Thirst has been released straight to DVD and Blu-ray.
The original film, released in 1987, starred Haim, Feldman and Jason Patric. Its premise about regular, suburban teens who take on a gang of local vampires in their town was a box office success.

Continue to cry, little sister, because another installment of the growing The Lost Boys franchise is heading to DVD today. The sequel, Lost Boys: The Thirst, sees the reunion of the Frog brothers, Edgar (Corey Feldman) and Alan (Jamison Newlander), for the first time since they joined the late Corey Haim to battle the surf-side bloodsuckers in the 1987 original. While Feldman returned for Lost Boys: The Tribe, Newlander only appeared in an alternate ending. For the third installment, Feldman has promised that The Thirst will deliver for the fans, and recently told Collider what to expect from the Frog brothers this time around.

In the latest sequel for the franchise, Lost Boys: The Thirst brings the vampire-slaying Frog brothers back to the forefront, nearly 25 years after they were introduced to audiences in the first film, The Lost Boys, which went on to become a cult classic and pop culture phenomenon. Now, Edgar (Corey Feldman) and Alan Frog (Jamison Newlander) have joined forces to kick some alpha vampire butt and save a young boy from a gang of night crawlers in San Cazador, a sleepy Northern California town. These bloodsuckers are growing a vampire army by handing out The Thirst, a drug made out of vampire blood, at raves all across the country. To stop it, the Frog brothers will have to enter a battle that will test their strength and finally put an end to the undead.
