Published Nov 03, 2010Every Wednesday, Exclaim! gathers up the most recently reviewed DVDs in one easy post. Please have a look at what's up for grabs in the Recently Reviewed section.
First up is the second film in the immensely popular Stieg Larsson Millennium series, The Girl Who Played with Fire (pictured), which is now out on Blu-Ray. We find our mysterious protagonist (Noomi Rapace) on the run in the second entry of the trilogy and get a glimpse into her complicated childhood.
Agora stars Rachel Weisz as Hypatia, the philosopher ahead of her time in ancient Alexandria. Though filled with non-stop action, director Alejandro Amenabar refuses to treat audiences like fools, making this a film well-worth checking out. Also reviewed this week is the Michael Moore Collection. With five of Moore's films included in the collection, you will find plenty of material to either love or hate.
The always excellent Catherine Keener and Oliver Platt star in Please Give, directed by Nicole Holofcener. The movie mixes realistic characters with genuinely funny comedy to bring us Holofcener's best work to date. Playing an anti-hero cowboy, Josh Brolin stars in Jonah Hex, out on Blu-Ray. John Malkovich and Megan Fox also star in this comic book adaptation.
If the 1987 Schwarzenegger classic left you itching for more, you're in luck because Predators is out on Blu-Ray.
