Published Sep 15, 2010With TIFF in full swing, film buffs are in movie heaven. But what about the DVD connoisseur? Well, Exclaim! has you covered; head on over to our Recently Reviewed motion section to find the perfect DVD pick for this week.
Inspired by the resourcefulness of MacGruber, we here at the Exclaim! offices found a way to play the DVD with only a box of matches, gum and toothpicks. The film stars Will Forte and expands upon the hit Saturday Night Live sketch. Don't hassle the Hoff about his 1979 film role in Star Crash. The Italian sci-fi film is the perfect so-bad-it's-good DVD.
Directed by Thomas Balmes, Babies is the documentary that everyone is talking about. The film follows four babies from Tokyo, San Francisco, Namibia and Mongolia, showing us their early adventures and experiences. Included in the DVD is a special feature, Babies-Three Years Later. Up next we've got the Argentinean thriller The Secret In Their Eyes, out on Blu-Ray. Directed by Juan Jose Campanella, the movie won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.
The made-for-TV film Who is Clark Rockefeller? is out on DVD this week as well. Starring Eric McCormack (Will and Grace), the movie tells the true story of conman Christian Karl Gerhartsreider, who impersonated a Rockefeller. Written, directed and starring Rob Stefaniuk is the star-filled, vampire-themed Suck. The film is about a struggling rock band that find vampirism brings them the fame they've been searching for. Look for appearances by Dave Foley, Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Moby and many more.
Last up, Tommy: The Movie is the star-studded 1975 musical film based on the Who's 1969 rock opera album, Tommy, and your favourite Kiwis star in Flight of the Conchords: The Complete Collection. The release comes with both seasons of the brilliant comedy-musical show, as well as the 2005 live special, One Night Stand.
