The Invention of Lying (also Blu-ray). This movie is based on an interesting idea. It is too bad the concept does not go as far or as deep as it could. Instead, it lingers on the surface. It is not bad by a long shot, but it is not as good as it could have been. Still, Ricky Gervais is a funny guy. I hope his next project takes it to the next level.
Che (also Blu-ray, Criterion Collection). Steven Soderbergh's epic biography of the revolutionary Che Guevera did not get a very wide release and in some cases its 261-minute length was cut into two parts. Criterion has put together what will likely be a very nice package. I am not terribly interested, but I suspect I will check it out at some point.
Magnolia (Blu-ray). I never saw this P.T. Anderson film. I suppose I should get around to seeing it at some point. He is a fascinating and original voice and one of the finest directors working today. Now, tell me, why else should I see this?
Defying Gravity. I have heard good things about this Canadian science fiction series that was cut way too short (aren't they all?). In any case, I have every intention of catching up with the show.
Smokin' Aces 2: Assassin's Ball (also Blu-ray). The prequel to the Joe Carnahan-directed film is another exercise in style over substance. It has a very good shootout, but that is about it. Still, worth a peek for the curious.
The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum (Combo Disk). Universal is releasing the great series on their new flipper disk. I believe they were doing this when they supported HD-DVD. They have adapted the process to the Blu-ray format. I am looking forward to checking it out. It doesn't hurt that I still need these on Blu.
Blood Creek. This Joel Schumacher film has been kicking around for a while now. I have actually heard pretty good things about. Yes, it is Schumacher, but he isn't always bad. This film follows a man on a path of revenge who gets caught in an occult experiment that began with the Third Reich.
Across the Hall (Blu-ray). One of Brittany Murphy's last films, it tells the story of a standoff between a man, his fiancee, and his best friend. Hotel rooms, murder, and betrayal. Could be fun.
