Published Mar 16, 2011It's another week and another batch of DVD and Blu-Ray releases are lining shelves, hoping to imbue you with a message, or at least a marketing ideal. And until the next Police Academy movie makes its way to home video, we will have to make due with the latest releases, which we have reviews of in the Exclaim! Recently Reviewed section.
Marking the second time that Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal got their pelvic on in film, Love and Other Drugs (pictured) tells the unfocused love story of a superficial pharmaceutical rep and an artist suffering from Parkinson's. Fortunately for Hathaway, Gyllenhaal isn't a closeted homosexual cowboy this time out.
On the documentary front, we have a review of the so-so Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister documentary, aptly titled Lemmy, which attempts to demystify the Motörhead frontman. Even though the film itself may not be perfect, you may want to check out our take on the Blu-Ray release to see why this is a must-see. Also worth a look on the small screen is the Academy Award winner for Best Documentary, Inside Job, wherein one perspective of the recent financial crisis is explored.
For something a little less expositional, we have reviews of fluffy Network wannabe Morning Glory, which features Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton embarrassing themselves, along with Burlesque, which has Cher, Christina Aguilera and a lot of twirling around.
If poorly done soft-core porn is more your thing Barely Legal Lesbian Vampires: The Curse of Ed Wood! might hit the mark, and if bizarre early '80s adventures turn your crank, maybe the Blu-Ray release of Excalibur will appeal.
