Punch Drunk DVD's

The Master:
The "is it or isn't it" L. Ron Hubbard pseudo biopic has been the subject of both acclaim and controversy  All of that aside it's a film that's definitely worth a look, great directing and better performances. Replay value probably isn't to high for most so a rental will probably do.


Silent Hill: Revelation
I know a lot of people didn't dig this film, I'm not one of them. While it's a bit of a step down for the creepily atmospheric and criminally underrated original adaptation of the popular video game series, Revelation still provides all of the visual horror that you'll need to occupy a Friday night on the couch. Bonus points for having Game of Thrones fan favorite Kit 'Jon Snow' Harrington in his first feature since becoming a household name.


Holy Motors
I tend not to include films I haven't seen on these lists, but I had to make an exception in the case of the French language (but English subtitled) film Holy Motors. I'll be 100% honest, I have no idea what the quality of this film may be but based on this synopsis I have to find out.

Over the course of a single day, Monsieur Oscar travels by limousine around Paris to a series of nine appointments, transforming into new characters at each stop. He is a captain of industry, a gypsy beggar, a digitized ninja warrior (and reptilian sex god!), a gibberish-spewing troglodyte, the melancholy father of a teenage daughter, a shadowy assassin, a dying old man, and a thwarted lover reuniting with a past flame.

If you caught the Oscars Sunday night then you've heard of this documentary that follows a group of activists who accomplished some downright amazing feats in the war against AIDS. There isn't much I can say that would give due credit to the enormity of their work, the best I can do is to say that this is one documentary that every person should view. Nothing is set in stone and even the most dire of situations deserves a fight!
