DVD Review: A Great Job
Tired of bloated blockbusters? See this movie today. | Photo courtesy of Lionsgate
They really don't make movies like The Bank Job anymore. In fact, it almost feels like a relic from another age with its focus on plot and character development instead of...well, lingering takes on movie stars (see Hancock). After a surprisingly strong theatrical run, The Bank Job is hands-down the movie you should be renting/buying today. If it has nothing else (and it probably doesn't). Step Up 2 the Streets at least has a few great scenes of Briana Evigan sex-dancing. Shutter is another remake of a better Asian original. Do the world a favor and skip it. Help end this awful trend! Any movie with "College" in the title should be rated R.

Relive the Boston Celtics glorious run to the NBA Championship with this superb DVD. Watch Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen "give the business" to Kobe Bryant and whoever else is currently playing on the Lakers. I wouldn't know. Why do cool British actors constantly turn up in equally cool, completely counterintuitive programs? If you liked following Michael Palin around Europe, you will probably love tooling around England with Robbie Coltrane. Beach Party at the Threshold of Hell seems like a high-brow title for what is essentially a jiggle fest, don't you think? Heavy Petting seems more on-the-nose.
