DVD/BLU-RAY RELEASES (31 JAN - 6 FEB)

Alice In Wonderland (Two-Disc 60th Anniversary Blu-ray/DVD Combo)Alice in Wonderland (Two-Disc 60th Anniversary) - The animation classic that doesn't require any introduction. A true gem that still amazes regardless of age, a reminder that animation is more than just fancy 3D technology. A fountain of imagination and creativity that does justice to Lewis Carroll's work. If you don't own it, you really should.


STRONGLY RECOMMENDED



Let Me In [Blu-ray]Let Me In - A surprisingly effective adaptation of the acclaimed swedish horror "Let the Right One In", directed by Matt Reeves of "Cloverfield" fame, a remake that stays faithful to the source while showing off some original inspiration of its own.  A solid horror experience. Fans of vampire flicks should have no problem with this one.

RECOMMENDED
 
                                      



Never Let Me GoNever Let Me Go - Based on the novel by Kazuo Ishiguro is a profound coming-of-age story with subtle elements of science fiction. The dystopian vision of the novel/movie and the intriguing romance make for an eerie, yet emotionally affecting viewing.  It won't appeal to everybody however, so make sure you're into this kind of movie before acquiring it.


CAUTIOUSLY RECOMMENDED


                                                    
Monsters (Two-Disc Special Edition DVD + Digital Copy)Monsters (Two-Disc Special Edition) - The new wave of science fiction is here. This low budget work of cinema verite sci-fi is nothing ground-breakingly original, but it does its minimalistic job. Part road trip movie, part creature feature, "Monsters" is too experimental to really be enjoyable, eventually turning into an underwhelming. experience. In the end, the coolest thing about it is how small the budget was.


JUST RENT IT
