This week sees the release of the years later G.I. Joe sequel no one clamored for, but was better than expected, Retaliation. The remaining DVDs are a collection of mostly straight to the shelf titles with names like Filly Brown, Demented, and Assault on Wall Street. Given the grab bag available there won't be any reviews set in stone for this week, so tune in Tuesday through Thursday to see if there are any surprise gems.
Andrew and Kyle are wrapping up their look at Oliver Stone's movies this Friday with another podcast to tie up the latter half of his career. Their response on this latter half to films like Alexander, Savages, and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps hasn't been as positive but there's still plenty to discuss.
The sequel to The Smurfs and the Denzel Washington / Mark Wahlberg vehicle 2 Guns both arrive this weekend. The first Smurfs film, aside from a wonderfully gonzo performance of Gargamel by Hank Azaria, was a dull wash and 2 Guns does not look very promising as well. Reviews coming this Saturday.
Sunday continues the In Appreciation series with Ryan picking up after Andrew's tribute to the great Viola Davis.
