'The Duellists', 'Seven Psychopaths' and 'Paranormal Activity 4' On DVD and Blu-ray This Week

This Week On DVD and Blu-ray: January 29, 2013

The Duellists [Blu-ray]
I first saw Ridley Scott's The Duellists last April and I enjoyed it enough to write up a three-page feature. What stood out most was the cinematography from Frank Tidy and the DVD came with a fantastic audio commentary with Scott and a "Duelling Directors" featurette with Scott discussing the film with Kevin Reynolds (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves). This new Blu-ray comes with both of those features as well as a new interview with star Keith Carradine. Visually, the Blu-ray is a definite upgrade from the DVD and this is one title I certainly recommend you consider. You can get a lot more on the story and my thoughts on the film in my three-page feature right here, but there are some spoilers so be warned.

Seven Psychopaths

I found this movie to be more about telling jokes than telling a story. As a result, I thought it was funny yet tedious. That said, I saw this as one of my favorite Christopher Walken performances ever and will still await anything writer/director Martin McDonagh has up his sleeve. You can read my review from the Toronto Film Festival here.

Paranormal Activity 4

I liked it and yet, I'm not really sure any of these Paranormal Activity films are really worth buying. As of right now the second and third films are available on NetFlix Instant and I'm sure this one will be soon enough. You can read my full theatrical review here.

Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey Season 3
Everyone loves the "Downton Abbey". I haven't seen a second of it, but for those of you that love it... here it is, season three.

The Awakening

The fact it stars Rebecca Hall has me interested and a 69% rating at RottenTomatoes tells me this thriller may be worth a look.


The Cold Light of Day

Alternatively, I have heard this is one of the worst movies of the last 12 months.

    I already own that Terminator Anthology on blu-ray for some time now (live in Canada). Is this not released in U.S. yet?

    I've only seen The Duellists once a few years back but I remember liking it as well. Perhaps if the Blu-ray is at a decent price I'll pick it up.

    Cant wait to buy Seven Psychopaths, easily the most entertaining movie of 2012.

  • Winchester

    The Awakening is OK. It's nothing more than a rental though. I haven't seen The Duellists advertised on region 2. I may be looking in the wrong place but it would interest me if it were.

    I'll rent PA4.

    While I agree that there was not much of a point to seven psychopaths, I still really liked it. The cast completely made up for any weakness of the script, and it was mainly their performances that kept me entertained for the two hours. I had no idea that this movie was even made until a friend that I work with at DISH recommended it to me. I am not the biggest fan of Mc Donagh, but with DISH’s Blockbuster @Home service I can just exchange it in the store if I don’t like it, so I had nothing to lose. I am really glad that I looked into it out because had me laughing pretty hard during some parts.

    Therefore it is very important to check the exact benefits
    that the casino offers before signing up. That way you have
    your initial deposit plus a bonus amount which you can withdraw
    to make a nice profit. We all love to get a big, juicy bonus when we sign up a new player account at an online casino, and getting a free no deposit
    casino bonus makes it all the sweeter.
