Love means never having to say ‘you’re sorry’ ... because your partner can’t hear you, anyway.

If Contagion were exported to Scotland — and injected with a dose of speculative fiction in customs — the result might make Perfect Sense. The film fails only to fit snugly into one genre, being a thriller, a romance and sci-fi, but sci-fi only in the sense that Children of Men and Never Let Me Go were. This is equally brainy, and maybe just a smidge less bleak.

A guy walks into a police station to report a murder: himself! With that
setup, one could make a tight, terrific crime film — and D.O.A.
is that movie ... in 1950. The 1988 remake doesn't fare as well, but at
least it's been preserved on Blu-ray by Mill Creek Entertainment.
Sci-Fi Rod Lott Alien has no shortage of rip-offs, but Sector 7 has the distinction of hitting video while Prometheus is in theaters. While Prometheus isn't great, it's better than Sector 7. Heck, even the much-maligned Alien vs. Predator is better than Sector 7.
Don’t go near the directorial debut of Vincent D’Onofrio.

New to DVD, 2010’s Don't Go in the Woods is not to be confused with 1981’s Don't Go in the Woods.
That one was a cheap slasher movie; this one is a cheap slasher movie
in which characters wonder what John Fogerty and the Donner party have
in common, and then sing songs.

With little exception (National Treasure, Kick-Ass, about one minute of Grindhouse),
there’s no denying that Nicolas Cage has spent the better part of the
past decade in a career slump. Witness such critically lambasted
underperformers as The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Season of the Witch, Bangkok Dangerous and, most recently,Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.
