Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?


Action

Swords and sandals: Once a matinee mainstay, the adventure subgenre is now all but extinct, kept alive by the occasional Conan movie or Titans clash. DVD helps, too, such as three new offerings from Warner Archive.

12 Years a Slave

Steve McQueen's emotionally jarring biopic depicts slavery in a way that few, if any, have ever dared.


Drama

Zach Hale
Slavery was a dark and shameful time in American history — unequivocally the darkest. Yet while the era has been portrayed on the silver screen in countless films, director Steve McQueen (ShameHunger) presents it with unprecedented realism in 12 Years a Slave — one of the most profoundly gut-wrenching, visceral works of 21st-century cinema you're bound to encounter.
