I also added a review of a small-budget film shot in San Francisco, the excellent Quality of Life, which is playing only in San Francisco at the moment, but will be opening wider. Don't miss it. Finally, I caught up with Serenity, which I missed because of haphazard press screening schedules.
As for new DVDs, I'm in love with the new Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection. I also checked out more Batman DVDs, Batman Returns and Batman Forever. Herbie Fully Loaded is a lot more fun than people give it credit for, and I even watched it a second time. The new House of Wax remake didn't, however, warrant a second viewing, and Martin Scorsese's No Direction Home: Bob Dylan isn't quite all it's cracked up to be. But Abbas Kiarostami's little-seen ABC Africa debuts on a suberb new DVD from New Yorker. Finally, High Tension, The Interpreter, Kicking and Screaming and Kingdom of Heaven all recently made their DVD debuts.
