New Movie & DVD Reviews from Combustible Celluloid.com
I thought I finally saw a good Hollywood film this year, Freedomland, but as of today, something like 8 out of every 10 reviews is negative (even Ebert's). I think it has such superior performances that it's worth checking out...

Unfortunately the overhyped Night Watch from Russia is not...

Otherwise, we have the excellent Hong Kong action film Breaking News, the terrible indie Illusion, with Kirk Douglas, and a pretty good new documentary opening in the San Francisco area, That Man: Peter Berlin.

As, as discussed before, Date Movie did not screen for the press. Let that be a warning to you...

In new DVDs, I was lucky enough to get a copy of The Virgin Spring: The Criterion Collection, which is just breathtaking. The Hong Kong horror flick Ab-Normal Beauty keeps its edge up until the end. Ferris Bueller's Day Off: Bueller... Bueller... Edition is worth seeing just because of the Ben Stein extra feature, and finally, The Thing About My Folks is worth seeing just to see why everyone hated it so much...
