Here are the DVD Releases scheduled for the week of October 23rd, 2012:
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. (Matthew Schuchman's review) Starring Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie. Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, discovers vampires are planning to take over the United States. He makes it his mission to eliminate them.
Magic Mike. Starring Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey. A male stripper teaches a younger performer how to party, pick up women, and make easy money.
While director Steven Soderbergh managed to create a film with actual weight, we know what the audiences were really lining up for. We expect a lot of freeze framing on this one.
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Starring Steve Carell, Keira Knightley. As an asteroid nears Earth, a man finds himself alone after his wife leaves in a panic. He decides to take a road trip to reunite with his high school sweetheart. Accompanying him is a neighbor who inadvertently puts a wrench in his plan.
A comedy about the end of the world. With someone like Steve Carell in the lead, how can you not love such a cheery concept?
Take This Waltz. Starring Seth Rogen, Luke Kirby, Michelle Williams. A happily married woman falls for the artist who lives across the street.
Not as high profile as some of Seth Rogen or Michelle Williams' other work, this is a small indie that nonetheless may be worth a rental.
Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection. Starring Tyler Perry, Eugene Levy, Denise Richards and Doris Roberts. A Wall Street investment banker who has been set up as the linchpin of his company's mob-backed Ponzi scheme is relocated with his family to Aunt Madea's southern home.
Basically, if you like Tyler Perry's movies, this is for you. If you don't, the presence of Eugene Levy is unlikely to change your mind.
