This Week in DVD: 10/2/12

This week on video store shelves we take a look at Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, The Babymakers, Sean Bean in Cleanskin, and some indie film called The Avengers.

Dark Shadows Review

While definitely closer in tone to what director Tim Burton should be making with his vivid imagination, wit, and eye for detail, Dark Shadows shouldn’t be heralded as a comeback for the director just yet. The potential for this film to serve as a middle ground between the big haired auteur’s beloved Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice feels somewhat squandered by a lightweight script and a really terrible final 20 minutes.
