Holiday weekends mean extra time to cozy up around a fireplace, and what better way to spice up downtime than with some new DVDs?
Holiday weekends mean extra time to cozy up around a fireplace, and what better way to spice up downtime than with some new DVDs? This week brings a bunch of new crowd-pleasers, so you're sure to find something for everyone.
Eat Pray Love
stars in the big screen adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert's best-selling travel memoir of the same name. Determined to find herself after two breakups, Liz sets out on a journey to Italy, India, and Indonesia, where she engages in the activities outlined in the film's title. The film has its slower moments
, but it's worth it for the gorgeous landscapes and supporting performances from James Franco
and Javier Bardem
. DVD extras include a director's cut and some featurettes.
Sylvester Stallone directed and stars in this high-octane action flick about a band of mercenaries who head to South Africa to try to stage a coup d'etat of the country's leader. The beefed-up cast includes Bruce Willis
, Jason Statham, Jet Li, and Mickey Rourke. This isn't the thought-provoking film of the year, but the sheer novelty of seeing all these action stars in one place is where the entertainment value lies. DVD bonus features featurettes, a behind-the-scenes look, and the stars' panel at Comic-Con.
One more release after the jump.
