Check Out Reviews of Public Enemies, The Girl in the Park and More in Exclaim!'s DVD Round-Up
Published Dec 10, 2009We have a slew of reviews for some great new DVDs this week, and to check them out, all you have to do is head to our Recently Reviewed motion section.
First up, we have The Five Lives of Criss Angel Mindfreak, a collection from the A&E TV series of Angel's elaborate, death-defying stunts and illusions.
Next, we travel back in time with Public Enemies, the film about the life of John Dillinger, one of the most notorious criminals in American history, featuring Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. Then we have The Girl in the Park featuring Sigourney Weaver playing a distraught mother who constantly returns to the park where she lost her daughter years before.
Following the recent trend of releasing only half-season DVD collections, Rescue Me: Season Five, Volume Two follows a team of firefighters and their distraught relationships, while director Robert Rodriguez's Shorts on Blu-Ray is a kaleidoscope of weird stories and inventive special effects featuring strange creatures and fantastic scenarios.
Also, in new music DVDs, we have Thin Lizzy's Are You Ready, a performance from 1981 for German TV series Rockpalast showcasing the late Phil Lynott and company at their peak. Billy Idol's In Super Overdrive Live is a performance by this seminal punk rocker at Chicago's Congress Theatre.
Find all of these and much more in our Recently Reviewed motion section and perhaps come up with some gift ideas for those special people in your life.
