New DVD Releases To Rent This Weekend

The Adjustment Bureau
Feel like seeing a little romance, action, and science fiction all mixed together? Then pick up The Adjustment Bureau starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt this weekend. You won’t be disappointed to watch the complicated tale of two lovers unfold as a group of men, hired by a greater force to make sure we all stick with the plan, try and tear them apart.  NY Times Manohla Dargis writes of The Adjustment Bureau's director George Nolfi, "Mr. Nolfi keeps the film balanced between sincerity and self-conscious amusement, rarely faltering in tone."

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules

The follow-up to 2010’s big screen hit Diary Of A Wimpy Kid based on the popular comic novels by Jeff Kinney makes for perfect family movie-night material on this long 4th of July weekend. Watch as Rodrick and Greg deal with the pains of being in middle school. The Guardian’s Phillip French writes of the film, “Kids in their early teens will enjoy this comedy based on a popular children's comic book about the humiliations and cheering fantasies of a 12-year-old schoolboy in Los Angeles with a quarrelsome elder brother, a little baby brother, a loving but over-solicitous mother and a bewildered father (a rather underused Steve Zahn).”

Barney’s Version
The cast alone should get you to run out and rent this one. Paul Giamatti and Dustin Hoffman play father and son in this adaptation of Mordecai Richler’s novel. The story follows the sinful life of Barney Panofsky, played by Giamatti, who is an alcoholic TV producer carrying around the baggage from a slew of failed marriages. A review from NY Daily News  describes the film, “By the time Barney gets one final, heartbreaking chance to screw things up, this rich, satisfying film has you hooked."

    Was considering watching The Adjustment Bureau the other night but, just looks to strange and formulaic....
