Acclaimed comedy Drinking Buddies was an official selection of the SXSW Film Festival.
Olivia Wilde (Deadfall) and Jake Johnson (No Strings Attached) star in the movie as co-workers Kate and Luke at a Chicago brewery where they spend their days drinking and flirting. The beer makes the line between friends and more than friends blur, but that causes problems with Luke’s almost fiance (Anna Kendrick, End of Watch) and Kate’s music producer boyfriend (Ron Livingston, The Odd Life of Timothy Green).
Drinking Buddies screened in only a couple of theaters but got rave reviews. Critics gave the R-rated film 80% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Moviegoers weren’t as bowled over, giving the movie only 59%.
The DVD and Blu-ray contain a few special features. Here’s the list:

Production has begun in southwest France on The Hundred-foot Journey, based on the best-selling novel by Richard C. Morais. Starring Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren, and directed by Oscar nominee Lasse Hallström, the film will be released on August 8, 2014 in the U.S.
In The Hundred-foot Journey, Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), gets wind of it.

Smart, stylish horror flick, though a standout more for its elegant performances than any original scares. I’m “biast” (pro): adore the cast
I’m “biast” (con): don’t tend to find horror movies scary
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
There seems to be this notion that “based on a true story” makes a haunted-house movie more scary, somehow. It doesn’t work for me, because I do not buy into the paranormal — at all. Try to convince me that phenomena for which we have no evidence whatsoever — and lots of evidence to the contrary — is really real and actually happened, and I will scoff. (Make no pretense about a similar story as fiction, however, and I can play along just fine, same way that I can believe in trolls or magic rings or lightspeed for the duration of a well-told tale.) So it »
