Published Jan 27, 2010Lots of sci-fi and a little bit of claymation make up this week's Recently Reviewed DVD selections, as well as bit of Hilary Duff.
Our Exclaim!-recommended release this week is Moon, the psychological sci-fi film starring Sam Rockwell, as well as Kevin Spacey as the voice of a computer. Not escaping the realm of sci-fi is also Pandorum, starring Dennis Quad, in what we called "the most underrated film of 2009."
Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson stars in Little Ashes, which attempts the complicated story of Salvador Dali, Luis Buñuel and Federico García Lorca during Madrid in the early 1920s, while Gamer stars Gerard Butler as a prison inmate stuck in a real-life videogame.
Drew Barrymore's roller-derby flick Whip It, starring Ellen Page is out this week, and Hilary Duff takes a stab at teenage angst in According to Greta. And even if claymation isn't your cup of tea, give Mary & Max a try. Philip Seymour Hoffman lends his voice to the role of a social reject with Asperger syndrome, who forms an unlikely pen-pal bond with an eight-year-old Australian girl.
Finally, if you'd rather settle in with some good ol' fashioned horror, Saw VI, the latest in the Saw franchise is now out on DVD. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Weeds: Season Five are also up for grabs this week.
