Published Dec 15, 2010It's Wednesday, which means Exclaim! has gathered the most recent DVD reviews from our Recently Reviewed section. So, if you are looking to spend a night in with some nog and gingerbread, check out which new DVDs are lining the video store shelves this week.
First up, you know what never sleeps? Money. At least, that's according to Gordon Gekko. In this year's sequel to the '80s classic Wall Street, Oliver Stone catches up with the aged billionaire (Michael Douglas) as he takes a young upstart (Shia LaBeouf) under his wing. Is Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps a worthy continuation of the tale? Did Gekko finally get a new cellphone? Find out answers to these questions and more by reading our review.
For those in the mood for a romantic comedy, read what we have to say about Going the Distance, starring Drew Barrymore and Justin Long as a madly-in-love pair who weather the trials of long-distance love in a digital age, with a side of fart jokes. Also, we have a longhaired Nicholas Cage starring in The Sorcerer's Apprentice, a modern-day reworking of Merlin.
Next up, Trailer Park Boys fans, rejoice. This week's DVDs include not one, but two new releases from the Boys. The first, Trailer Park Boys: Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys, is an extended version of the show's final episode. Also, read our review of Trailer Park Boys: The Movie/Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day, which is essentially a twofer of both films with no bells or whistles -- a prefect stocking stuffer for the uninitiated fan.
Finally, it is possible you've never heard of this straight-to-DVD film, but you would do well to check out the smart, edgy comedy ExTerminators, starring Heather Graham as a scorned women who meets some quality ilk after being forced into rage management classes.
