It's time to take some movies home, my friends, movies to watch again and again. This week: Vampires! Angels! Mel Gibson! No, not all in the same movie. Here's this week's new releases on DVD and Blu-Ray.
Legion - This somewhat religiously confused action flick was a lot of fun in a "big dumb cheese" way. Paul Bettany plays the last hope for Humanity, the Archangel Michael, who's trying to protect the new Messiah against the Heavenly Host, along with a bunch of stereotypes in a diner somewhere in the dusty desert West. Sure, you're not going to find a lot of this in the Bible (unless it's the Rob Liefeld bible), but whatevs. We don't go to movies on Sunday morning anyway. Watch the trailer.
Edge Of Darkness - Mel Gibson takes on his first starring role in years in this gritty thriller where he plays a Boston homicide detective obsessed with solving his daughter's seemingly senseless murder. Of course, there's a web of conspiracy, corruption and lies at the root of it - there's one of those at the root of everything! This remake of a British TV drama is worth watching, not just due to Gibson aging into a fine creaky noir hero. Watch the trailer.
Daybreakers - This high-concept vampire action flick didn't make a dent in the Twilight machine, but I thought it was pretty fun. In the far future, vamps are the majority, and the last few remaining humans are farmed for their blood. When a scientist discovers a cure for blood addiction, an all-out civil war breaks out. Read the full review.
Celine: Through The Eyes Of The World - If vampires, demon angels, and murdered kids don't scare you, you might be man enough to sit through this feature-length Celine Dion documentary. Good luck!
