Published Oct 19, 2011The DVD roundup this week features something for everyone: mind-numbing, action-packed films, realistic dramas and popular TV sitcoms. To read the full reviews of what's up for grabs, head over to our Recently Reviewed section.
First are two action-adventure films with the usual explosions, epic car chases and scantily clad women. Michael Bay's Transformers: Dark of the Moon (pictured) is now available for you to relive the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons again and again. If Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (aka the new Megan Fox) does not suit you, check out our review of Fast Five. The fifth instalment of this boys' flick, with the original main cast, furthers the lives of each original character. In fact, the DVD includes a featurette explaining the character development throughout the series.
Next, we have two films tackling serious and realistic narratives. Terri, directed by Azazel Jacobs, observes the socialization of people. It is an unusual comedy about an obese teen dealing with criticism and struggling to fit in. Another emotionally tolling film is Beautiful Boy, which follows a married couple dealing with the loss of their mass-murdering son, and takes a look into the battle of nature versus nurture.
We also have reviews of some recently released television series, including the quirky cop show The Mentalist: The Complete Third Season, staring Simon Baker as a former faux psychic and investigative cop. Another hugely successful series out now is How I Met Your Mother Season Six. This season satisfies fans with more of womanizer Barney's (Neil Patrick Harris) sexual antics.
Lastly, if British comedy is your thing, be sure to check out Snuff Box: The Complete Series. This two-man show features Matt Berry and Rich Fulcher playing black comedy versions of themselves.
