Ton of fun releases this week so wake up!

Elephant White - Don't know much about this one except that it comes from action grindhouse Millennium Films (Expendables) and stars Kevin Bacon as a ruthless weapons dealer. Expect car chases, one liners and running away from explosions. This is a must watch for me.


The Mechanic - Another Millennium joint, this is the remake of the old Bronson film that sort of went unnoticed at the box office (at least by me). However, good source material and Ben Foster as an assassin's apprentice make me want to check it out.

Vanishing on 7th Street - After getting ravaged by two of our reviewers here on Quiet Earth (here and here) this one's a "enter at own risk" kind of thing. Reasons to include it here are that it's apocalyptic and was directed by Brad Anderson who did The Machinist and Transsiberian.

Red White and Blue - Simon Rumley's shocking Red, White and Blue finally comes to DVD only this week. Ben gave this one a 9 out of 10 while I really liked his last film The Living and the Dead so this is a must watch.

Deep Red - Dario Argento's Deep Red gets a Blu-ray upgrade from Blue Underground. I love this film, but it still can't quell the wait for Suspiria on Blu-ray.


Other films of note out this week are:
The Rite
Daydream Nation
Diabolique on Criterion Blu-ray
The Roommate
The Twilight Zone: Season 4

Red White & Blue is one of the best films I've seen this year.
