Three big releases this week, but if you want something to prep for The A-Team (opening Friday), the complete TV series releases this week on DVD, as well as UFC’s Rampage: Greatest Hits. So something for the kids, too.
From Paris with Love – John Travolta continues his downward spiral with a loud and annoying spy thriller/action flick that was roundly panned upon release. But hey, what do I know? I thought Look Who’s Talking would have ended his career.
Shutter Island – Let the naysayers say nay, but I loved this Scorsese film with regular Leonardo DiCaprio as a federal marshal caught up in a web of deception and madness at an isolated asylum. Visually gorgeous, powerful and clever, it’s a terrific film.
Shinjuku Incident – Some serious Jackie Chan from across the sea. At its heart an immigration drama, the film has its share of action too. Definitely a must-see for fans of the man himself.
