In new DVDs, I'm excited about the new Greta Garbo box set, and I updated my reviews of Queen Christina and Ninotchka accordingly. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy happiliy stood up to a second viewing at home, but The Longest Yard remake is better suited for the cut-out bins. In other classics, I added reviews of Ernst Lubitsch's To Be or Not to Be and Werner Herzog's incredible directorial debut Signs of Life. Two non-fiction films make their DVD debut as well, both disappointing outings from famous comedians: Sam Kinison: Outlaws of Comedy and the lightweight, likeable John Cleese:Wine for the Confused.
Have a great weekend!
