New to DVD September 21st

Alright people, unfortunately this week the new release are not plentiful, and what is out is painful, at least to me. First is Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe. I must tell anyone who reads this review and still rents it that the movie is a prequel to the Robin Hood story we all know and love. Having that knowledge is power and will definately shape how you take in the movie. Now as for whether you should rent the movie, I advise you not to. I found the movie dull, and it felt like Gladiator rather than Robin Hood. The plot was thin and I found my self bored and not caring. In fact, I fell asleep in the theatre. Truly that is a statement.

The other movies out this week are ones I have not heard of so I don’t know how to direct you, but I am nervous about them both. One seems too serious for me (read: depressing) and the other is a sequel I didn’t know was being made. The Experient stars Adrian Brody and Forrest Whitaker. Stomp the Yard: Homecoming which is straight to video. I am not a fan of straight to video, sure there are gems, but pseudo-dancing movie? Hmmmm, I will pass.

Sorry to be such a downer on the movies this week, but I think your money and time could be spent watching new tv shows this week (the majority premier!) or renting the TV shows you fell behind on last season, as a lot just came out. I just finished with Grey’s Anatomy myself and will be moving onto Fringe season 2 tomorrow.
