Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, The Pacific and Secret Origin: The Story of DC Comics Lead This Week's DVD Roundup
Published Nov 17, 2010Every Wednesday, Exclaim! gather up the most recently reviewed DVDs in one easy post to help you make sense of it all. Have a look at what's up for grabs in the Recently Reviewed section.
First up is the excellent Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, directed by Edgar Wright. Starring Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, the film takes us on an adventure filled with enough indie geekiness to make you squee. Then we have Vampires Suck, which comes from the same guys who brought us Date Movie and Scary Movie 1, 2, 3 and 4.
Directed by Mac Carter and narrated by Ryan Reynolds, Secret Origin: The Story of DC Comics is a documentary worth checking out for those interested in the history of the comics giant. The film grabs some plum interviews with some of DC's best talent and explores some of the lesser-known work from the '70s and '80s.
In TV, there's the Emmy Award-winning mini-series The Pacific, and then Julia Roberts is back with Eat Pray Love.
For some chuckles, check out Grown Ups, starring Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, David Spade, Chris Rock and Kevin James, and to get freaked right out, watch Michael Haneke's Funny Games or Lars Von Trier's Antichrist.
Last up is unauthorized music documentary, The Sacred Triangle: Bowie, Iggy and Lou 1971-1973, which aims to connect the three musical icons during the early '70s.
