Beasts of the Southern Wild

One of the great child performances anchors an imaginative fantasy.


Drama

Kathryn Jenson White
Rather than going to Beasts of the Southern Wild, you should approach the theater with the idea of going with it.

A Three Stooges Celebration

Sample the Stooges for not a lot of scratch.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Hopefully, the new-to-DVD Three Stooges movie — which is actually pretty decent, unless you're a humorless mother-nyuk-er — spurs more viewers to try the real thing. For those wanting to sample their black-and-white brand of slapstick with minimal investment, many bargain-DVD collections exist containing only their material that has fallen into the public domain.

Girls Gone Dead

T&A that earns a D.


Comedy

Rod Lott
I'm torn between whether the horror comedy Girls Gone Dead is misogynist or merely plays pretend. That it’s written by a woman boggles the mind.

Michael / Silver Tongues

Two great films, if you can take them.


Drama

Rod Lott
My wife barely can stand — and sometimes refuses — to watch TV shows like The Office and Curb Your Enthusiasm because they make her too nervous. Therefore, she would hate Michael and Silver Tongues, two new-to-DVD entries in discomfort cinema. I recommend them both, while acknowledging they are far from the easiest of watches.

No Mercy

No, but thanks.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Straight out of South Korea, No Mercy shows exactly that. But too bad it's only for the first act.

The Last Challenge / The Hanging Tree

Fairly nice shootin', Tex.


Western

Rod Lott
Two Westerns from the days when Hollywood relied on them pull into the DVD-R outpost from Warner Archive. Neither is essential, but its wide landscapes and reliable tropes make for comfortable-enough watching.
