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.
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.

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.
I really had no desire to see this, so I haven't.
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.
