[DVD Review] The Tiger's Tail

20 August 2009 6:18 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Here's what The Tiger's Tail wants to be: a pensive meditation on the malleability of identity, and the complex journey to accepting and eventually embracing one's life choices in middle age. Here's what it actually is: hopelessly, excruciatingly, incorrigibly dull.

The initial premise -- that of a man randomly encountering his doppelganger -- has all the potential to provide for an interesting character study or an original, paranormal mystery tale. The themes such a plotline opens up for exploration are sundry: living life myopically versus seeing the big picture, gaining appreciation through another's envy for what is yours, hell, even natural human duality. Unfortunately, The Tiger's Tail decides not to go any of these routes, and instead paves its own horribly awkward and tedious way. Throwing in a bunch of unrelated theories and mythologies as an afterthought doesn't help much in terms of giving a convoluted, unexplained, nonsensical plot line any depth or even reason. »

This Week on DVD: I Love You, Man, The Class, Tmnt Collection

11 August 2009 9:59 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

If you're going DVD shopping today, there are a few decent choices, however I wouldn't really recommend either I Love You, Man or 17 Again unless you absolutely love Paul Rudd or Zac Efron. Instead, I can wholeheartedly recommend the Oscar-nominated French film The Class, and the indie comedy Gigantic is at least worth a look. Also in stores this week is the '50s sci-fi spoof Alien Trespass, the direct-to-dvd sequel to Road Trip, and a Michael Jackson documentary, plus all four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies on Blu-ray! Will you be spending your hard-earned cash on anything this week? I Love You, Man [1] (DVD, Blu-ray [2]) 17 Again [3] (DVD, Blu-ray [4]) The Class [5] (DVD, Blu-ray [6]) Gigantic [7] Alien Trespass [8] (DVD, Blu-ray [9]) Road Trip: Beer Pong [10] Gooby [11] Almost Heaven [12] The Last Resort [13] Steppin' [14] The Tiger's Tail [15] The Art of War III: Retribution [16] Dark Rising [17] Dead by Dawn 2: The Return [18] Moonwalking: The True Story »
