New DVD Releases for June 8, Including Shutter Island and From Paris With Love

What to Rent: New DVD Tuesday

Not a ton to choose from in this week's DVD releases, but here are the two big titles hitting shelves. Give them a look and if they're not for you, you can always join my Netflix challenge to broaden your selection.

Shutter Island

Leonardo DiCaprio plays a US Marshall sent to investigate a mental hospital for the criminally insane. As he gets further into finding the truth, he starts to distrust the wardens who are obviously hiding something — and he gradually starts to feel a little crazy himself. Though not as captivating as some of Scorsese's other work, I found Shutter Island to be a mix of intrigue and some beautiful imagery that makes it a solid rental. The twist ending also makes it the kinda movie I'd like to see again under a magnifying glass. If the movie leaves you feeling more inquisitive than scared, try the Blu-Ray version, which includes an informative look at psychiatric therapy in the 1950s.

From Paris With Love

John Travolta sports a bald head and goatee as an American spy trying to stop a terrorist attack; Jonathan Rhys Meyers is the young guy in the US Ambassador's office who becomes his partner in crime fighting. I was a little leery about the film when it first came to theaters, but perhaps I'll give it a go since this week's pickings are so slim. One thing in its favor: the DVD extras include a featurette look at real-life spies, which appeals to the Alias-lover in me.

"Shutter Island" has interested me for awhile so that will probably be my weekend film choice. Rarely rent films these days (DVR's are addictive, leading to many films building up! :P ) however the one mentioned should be worth it.
