Wanna cozy up to a good flick after work? Here are some new options:
Release o’ the week: Sound City. I’ve heaped praise on this documentary from Dave Grohl, and I won’t stop until you see it! Great story with amazing music to match.
- Willow. Grab the special edition, then chat about it with Ron Howard and Warwick Davis.
- This Must Be the Place. Sean Penn does his best Robert Smith impersonation, and I’m so there.
- LIfe of Pi. It’s been so long since I read the book that the ending will probably surprise me.
- Smashed. This intense film about a young alcoholic boasts an excellent cast, including Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aaron Paul, Octavia Spencer, Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman.
- Hitchcock. Anthony Hopkins portrays the legendary director.
- The Blob. Criterion releases the cult classic on Blu-ray.
