New DVD Releases For Sept 14 Include Prince of Persia, Letters to Juliet, and Just Wright

What to Rent: New DVD Tuesday

It's a happy Tuesday if you're looking for new movie rentals that are as light as freshly-popped popcorn. Check out the new movie releases out today and pump up your DVD player with some Summer 2010 flicks!

Prince of Persia

A beefed-up, shirtless Jake Gyllenhaal stars in this adventure fantasy as Prince Dastan, a street urchin-turned-royal who embarks on a desert-set escapade after he's framed for murder. Gyllenhaal takes on an accent and smokin-hot love interest (Gemma Arterton), and ultimately, I found the movie entertaining if forgettable. But if that's not the recipe for a rental, I don't know what is. The specials on the DVD include a featurette on the making of the film.


Letters to Juliet

Girl-of-the-moment Amanda Seyfried top lines this romantic flick as Sophie, a starry-eyed idealist who discovers a letter in Verona, Italy (setting of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet), written years earlier. She then sets out to reunite the woman who wrote it (Vanessa Redgrave) and her long-lost lover. Predictably, sparks fly when the woman's nephew and Sophie fall for each other while he accompanies her on the journey. Though Pop wasn't impressed with the romantic drama, it could still make a cute centerpiece for a girls' night in. DVD extras include commentary with Seyfried and the director, deleted and extended scenes and a making-of featurette.

Just Wright

Queen Latifah and Common are paired up in this romantic comedy about a physical therapist, Leslie (Latifah), who falls for the basketball player she's treating for an injury. Pam Grier and Paul Patton also costar as Leslie's family members. It has enough in common with one of my favorite romantic comedies — 2000's Love and Basketball — that it warrants a rental from a die-hard rom-con lover. The DVD extras include a gag reel, trailer, a making-of documentary, and a featurette.

Guess I am turning to the reliable DVR to watch a film as none of the mentioned releases create an interest. Especially "Letters To Juliet"; I like the cast quite a bit, it is the storyline that seems overly mushy for my tastes. (Maybe I will get bored some rainy day months from now and watch the film when it airs on tv.)
