Underworld: Awakening

Kate plus bait.


Action

Rod Lott
After sitting out the 2009 prequel, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, Kate Beckinsale and her skintight, black-leather outfit return for Underworld: Awakening, the fourth and likely not-final entry in the mindless but massively popular vampires-vs.-werewolves franchise. Also back? That omnipresent blue tint. Not so lucky? Scott Speedman.

Flareup

Raquel-a-go-go!


Thriller

Rod Lott
Raquel Welch never quite landed on the A list, but not for a lack of trying. It's just that so many of her projects (Bedazzled, One Million Years B.C., Fathom, Myra Breckinridge, et al.) required little more of her than her assets. At least she shakes those with the best of them as a go-go girl on the go — and on the run — in 1969's Flareup, fresh from the MOD ovens of Warner Archive.

Mimic 3 Film Set

A triumvirate of vermin.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Assuming you’ve yet to acquire the director’s cut of Mimic that Lionsgate unleashed to Blu-ray last fall, I’d suggest opting for its new, franchise complete 3 Film Set. Only Guillermo del Toro’s 1997 original played theaters, while the two sequels went the direct-to-DVD route, on purpose.

Knights of the Round Table

Good ‘Knight’? Not quite.


Drama

Rod Lott
From 1953, Knights of the Round Table proudly boasts the CinemaScope logo as it opens, trumpeting itself as an epic Hollywood costumed drama on a massive scale: no expense spared, no detail ignored. And no story engagement.

Cinema Verite

Be glad their family isn't yours.


Drama

Rod Lott
In 1971, the all-American, Nixon-loving clan known as the Loud family made history without even trying. They just allowed cameras into their lives for six months, and the result was PBS' An American Family, television's first reality series.

The Aggression Scale

Home, sweat home.


Thriller

Rod Lott
True to its title, The Aggression Scale begins quite aggressively: A woman just done with her daytime jog enters her home, whereupon a gunshot blasts her back out to her front yard. A hit man emerges and snaps a Polaroid for proof.

Rogue River / The Collapsed

All washed up, all fall down.


Horror

Rod Lott
Two new direct-to-DVD horror thrillers begin with much promise, but fizzle before they’re able to provide any sizzle.

The Deep Blue Sea

Rachel Weisz commits the vice of adultery in The Deep Blue Sea, a drama so pedestrian-paced, it makes sex look boring.
