Why did Millennium Entertainment just release trailer for a film David O. Russell shot in 2008?
This week brings out some heavy hitters at the video store including Life of Pi, The Master, Hitchcock, Smashed, Playing for Keeps, This Must be the Place, and A Late Quartet.
Enter for a chance to win one of five copies of the romantic comedy Playing for Keeps on Blu-Ray courtesy of Dork Shelf and VVS Films.
With films coming to home video two days this week (Tuesday and Friday) here's part one of our look at the latest releases including Beasts of the Southern Wild, Killer Joe, Total Recall, Premium Rush, and Arbitrage.
The romantic comedy Playing for Keeps has an excellent first 45 minutes mostly because it isn’t trying to be a standard rom-com. What starts off as a curiously winning mixture of a kids sport’s movie and a racy, adult sex farce, however, gives way somewhat suddenly to become something that’s merely okay and not at all surprising.
Dork Shelf sits down with Playing for Keeps leading man Gerard Butler to talk about working with kids, his great cast, his fading accent, and trying to make a film with soccer as a backdrop in the United States.
While it was inevitable that someone would make a big screen biopic about one of the world's most prominent directors, Hichcock is only a mildly entertaining and watchable film with a complete and utter disregard for the history of the man at the centre of it so the filmmakers can create drama that wasn't there originally.
