We FINALLY start digging ourselves out of the backlog of DVDs and Blu-Rays we received over the past month with the first of two special home entertainment columns this week. Today we look at the hilarious Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, the intense Captain Phillips, the Adam Scott comedy A.C.O.D., Kuosawa's classic Throne of Blood on Criterion, and Dylan McDermott trapped in a Freezer.

It might not be the most original addiction narrative ever created, but James Ponsoldt's Smashed succeeds thanks to some painful moments of intimacy, dark humour, and excellent performances.
Since we don't get days off on weeks like this, here's part five of our TIFF 2012 coverage with looks at The Place Beyond the Pines, Seven Psychopaths, Hotel Transylvania, A Royal Affair, Thermae Romae, Smashed, Rebelle, and Laurence Anyways.
Action packed, utterly hilarious, and sure to be divisive, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter balances thrills, outright silliness, and ludicrous revisionist history to create an experience where you'll either get the joke or you won't.
