The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Expendables and Exit Through the Gift Shop Lead This Week's DVD Review Roundup
Published Dec 08, 2010Every Wednesday, Exclaim! gathers the most recently reviewed DVDs from our Recently Reviewed motion section. So if you're looking to sit back and press play on that DVD player, have a look at which new flicks are up for grabs.
First up is the third instalment in the Twilight series, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (pictured). In the latest film, we find heroine Bella Swan, played by Kristen Stewart, making a choice between her glittery vampire and beefed-up werewolf love interests. Included within the Blu-ray extra features are a six-part documentary and music videos from Muse and Metric.
In an action-packed ode to the '80s, we find Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables. Stallone teams up with Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Steve Austin, Randy Couture, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren and Bruce Willis to make a super action film full of explosions, tough guys and evil villains. Even a certain California governor makes a cameo.
Exit Through the Gift Shop has made waves in the documentary world in the past year and has finally been released for at-home viewing, while fans of the long-running British series Doctor Who are in luck, as Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series is also out.
Finally, in music DVD reviews, there are two choices for your consideration. Frank Zappa's The Torture Never Stops takes live concert footage from around 1981 when Zappa was at his hairy best to make a film that can only be described as a "Zappa masochist's wet dream." Also, there is the new DVD release by Polish extreme metallers Behemoth called Evangelia Heretika.
