Published Oct 28, 2009With Halloween this coming Saturday and winter just around the corner, it's time we start preparing for those long, cold nights cozied up at home. So whether you're handing out candy, avoiding ghouls and ghosts all together, or just training for hibernation, Exclaim! is here with all the latest DVD reviews to keep you entertained indoors and out of the cold.
Live concert fans can look forward to the exceptional The Moody Blues: Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970, which is a rare must-own in the land of music DVDs. Case in point, the unauthorized The Beatles: Rare and Unseen is a lacklustre effort hoping to capitalize on the recent Beatles reissues.
For those looking for movie-movies, The Proposal is a fun romantic comedy that is filled with the typical hi-jinx found in this genre. Where I Love You, Beth Cooper tries to recapture the old John Hughes teen drama formula and actually does a half-decent job of it. Sadly, legendary comedy director/writer Harold Ramis can't capture his old magic with his latest film, Year One, starring Jack Black and Michael Cera.
Finally, if you're just looking for something to help get you in the mood before you're Halloween party, check out the independent zombie flick Dead Snow. What could be more evil than Nazi zombies?
Of course you can check out all of these and more in our Recently Reviewed section.
