Enchanted

Take the hottest Disney Princess since Beauty and the Beast‘s Belle in Enchanted‘s Giselle, add a generous helping of Amy Adams’ charm, a dash of Dr. McDreamy himself (Patrick Dempsey) at his Grey’s Anatomy peak, and weave in some characters and themes from Disney classics, and you have yourself one of Disney’s most enjoyable movies in recent memory. Taken from her animated fairy tale world of Andalasia, where her days consist of the tasks of being pretty, singing with her animal friends, and waiting for Prince Charming (or Prince Edward, played by James Marsden), Giselle is tricked by an evil queen into falling down a well/portal that lands her in modern day New York City. While trying to find her way home to Andalasia, Giselle has to learn what it’s like to not be an animated character and also discover the real life meaning of true love, which begins to understand through, of all people, an emotionally detached divorce lawyer. Nearly all of Enchanted’s special features are presented in 1080P, with the exception of Carrie Underwood’s (another plus!) music video for “Ever Ever After.” The Blu-ray includes making-of clips, deleted scenes, a pop up story, and trailers for National Treasure: Book of Secrets and Sleeping Beauty on Blu-ray.

Monsters, Inc.

Monster’s Inc: the other black sheep of the Pixar canon? It’s their least discussed movie outside of A Bug’s Life, but not for lack of quality; this tale of monsters employed by a mega-corporation to scare children in the human world to harness the energy of their screams is a compltely solid, clever tale but somehow lacks a certain je ne sais quoi that keeps it from classic status. The characterizations may not run too deep and the universe of the monsters too overwhelming for most audiences, but it builds up to a stunning emotional finale and the climatic chase sequence is arguably the best action sequence Pixar has ever put out. The Blu-ray features a lengthy commentary feature from the filmmakers, an overview of the Monsters ride in Tokyo, two original shorts, “interviews” with the characters, deleted scenes, and is definitely packed with enough fun stuff for the kids.


[tomatometer]MuzeID=1164826[/tomatometer]

Ratatouille

It’s old hat at this point to praise Pixar for its innovation, for its attention to detail, for its emotionally satisfying storytelling. So let’s take slightly a different tack with Certified Fresh Ratatouille: has there ever been a more tactile, sensorial animated feature than this one? Nearly everything in Ratatouille seems tangible, from the pots and pans in the Parisian kitchens to the fur on its protagonist’s little rat body. And the tasty concoctions that our hero Remy (voiced by Patton Oswalt) cooks up are so vividly realized that you can practically smell them. How real does this movie feel in high-definition? You’ll have to find out for yourself, but to entice you, the Ratatouille Blu-ray has a 14-minute documentary on the intersection between cinema and cuisine, along with deleted scenes and two Pixar shorts: Lifted and Your Friend the Rat.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Contrary to what many have come to believe, The Nightmare Before Christmas was not, in fact, directed by Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, Big Fish); the stop-motion animated film was helmed by Henry Selick, who went on to bring us the similarly animated films James and the Giant Peach and this year’s Coraline. Burton did, however, produce Nightmare and come up with its story, and his fingerprints are all over the film, from its dark yet playful themes right down to the character design. The story focuses on Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloweentown, who happens upon a mysterious door in the middle of the forest that leads him to discover Christmastown. Enchanted by the charms of Christmas, Jack returns to Halloweentown and attempts to recreate the holiday for his own townsfolk, with disastrous results. In Blu-Ray, each character bursts with life onscreen in never-before-seen clarity, and Danny Elfman’s musical numbers pop in HD audio. There are also tons of special features, including featurettes, commentaries, an original poem narrated by Christopher Lee, Burton’s short film Vincent, and a lot more. The film is quickly becoming a holiday classic, and with the amount of stuff you get with the disc, this is definitely a Blu-Ray to pick up and store in your collection.

WALL-E

Forget the supposed eco-message about our dying Earth — “I just wanted to cover the world in trash,” said director Andrew Stanton, and never has an entire planet piled high with refuse looked so beautiful. From the opening seconds of WALL-E — as we zoom into a vacated world, the sound of a long-gone show tune collapsing into Thomas Newman’s eerie score — Pixar’s lonely robot movie casts an unforgettable spell, taking us at once back to the glory days of ’70s sci-fi and into the shiny future of CG storytelling. The movie’s bleep-and-clank first half (a sound design marvel from Ben Burtt) is as bold a piece of filmmaking as anything this decade, and if WALL-E resorts to more conventional storytelling for its denouement, it’s never less than superb. As you’d expect the film scrubs up fresher than an oil bath on Blu-ray, where you can really see the intricacy of Stanton’s compositions and his animators work on the robots’ expressions. Features include a picture-in-picture commentary, audio tracks with Stanton and Burtt and a load of making-of featurettes. Essential stuff.

If you loved Will Smith’s I Am Legend up until its final chapters, you’re in luck; a decidedly different denouement can be found on the special edition DVD, our top pick for you home video enthusiasts. For more subdued thrills, the Oscar-nominated romance Atonement is also new to shelves; Disney’s delightful princess pic Enchanted offers even lighter fare. More adventurous moviegoers have magnificent critical bungles to dissect in Richard Kelly’s science fiction Southland Tales, Guy Ritchie’s crime pic Revolver, also new this week.


I Am Legend – Two-Disc Special Edition

Tomatometer: 68%

While Will Smith‘s last-man-on-Earth pic broke box office records last December and proved yet again that the erstwhile Fresh Prince is worth his salt as an action hero, the final scenes of Francis Lawrence‘s adaptation (from the Richard Matheson novel) left many viewers cold. But Warner Bros. has the ultimate treat for those of you who left the theater shaking your heads: a wildly different alternate ending on the Two-Disc Special Edition of I Am Legend that might just redeem the theatrical cut’s last-act inanity. The muscled Smith acquits himself well as the last remaining survivor of a global outbreak, tromping the empty streets of Manhattan by day and battling the vampiric infected by night while slowly going crazy from loneliness. Catch the usual special features on an accompanying DVD-ROM, but again, the real reason to pick up this release is the film itself — and its bonus alternate ending.

Atonement

Tomatometer: 82%

Keira Knightley and James McAvoy star as young lovers torn apart by a single, devastating lie in director Joe Wright‘s stunning epic romance. When rich and beautiful Cecilia Tallis (Knightley) gets caught in a clinch with her childhood friend, Robbie Turner (McAvoy), their love must withstand a false accusation by Cecilia’s young sister, Briony (Saiorse Ronan) then prison, war, and separation. Wright’s critically acclaimed period pic — the epitome of the prestige piece, and movingly executed — is at once romance, mystery, war film and character drama, all set to Dario Marinelli‘s Oscar-winning syncopated, symphonic score. Deleted scenes, featurettes on adapting the Ian McEwan novel and making the film, and a commentary track by director Wright complement the release.


Enchanted


Tomatometer: 93%

The limitation of classic Disney films like Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty has been that, while perfectly…enchanting within the confines of their animated worlds, such stories couldn’t possibly translate with real actors. (Besides, where would you find real mice and birds that could sew Cinderella’s dress together without making a mess?) Enter Enchanted, Disney’s stab at a live-action princess movie complete with animal friends and impromptu singing; with the lovable Amy Adams as a cartoon heroine come to life in dirty, real-life New York City, the Mouse House gamble proved lucky. Critics liked the film’s relentlessly cheery sensibility and self-aware Disneyfications; we like a good blooper reel on any DVD release. Extras include Carrie Underwood’s music video for “Ever Ever After” and behind-the-scenes featurettes for two of the film’s Oscar-nominated songs.

Southland Tales


Tomatometer: 34%

Not a single American film in the past few years has piqued as much curiosity, or as much critical debate, as Richard Kelly‘s Southland Tales. A huge-scaled futuristic-philosophical romp about fate in post-nuclear Los Angeles starring the likes of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Seann William Scott, Justin Timberlake, and half the cast of Saturday Night Live, Kelly’s sci-fi opus was either an artsy, ambitious endeavor or simply the sophomore slump inevitably following Kelly’s similarly divisive Donnie Darko. Yours truly was in the infamous Cannes audience when Kelly unleashed his behemoth upon the world and will be among the obsessed watching the DVD over and over for any clue as to what he was thinking; alas, no explanation by way of director commentary appears on this initial disc.

The Seeker: The Dark is Rising


Tomatometer: 13%

Fans of author Susan Cooper’s children’s fantasy series The Dark Is Rising will likely be disappointed, if not downright outraged, by this big-screen adaptation of her second book. Why? Try skipping the first novel entirely and making a number of story alterations, the most obvious of which is Americanizing the 14-year-old protagonist. But critics say that even the uninitiated viewer should be wary, lest subpar computer graphics, a boring script, and a fantasy yarn that is decidedly un-fantastic — about a teen plopped into an ancient battle between good and evil — is your idea of a good time.

Revolver


Tomatometer: 16%

In his latest film, Guy Ritchie tackles gangsters and criminals — shocker, right? But Revolver, his last film since the disaster that was Swept Away, is more than just an uber-Brit shoot-em-up starring Jason Statham…ok, so it also stars Statham (who made his name in early Ritchie films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch). And it was a critical and commercial disappointment (just like Swept Away). That’s partially because Revolver, like Ritchie compatriot Matthew Vaughn‘s Layer Cake, is an existential kind of gangster thriller — perhaps over-indulgently so, say scribes. Con man Jake Green (Statham) leaves a long prison stint to seek revenge on the man who put him there (Ray Liotta). Throw in gambling, hitmen, Andre “3000” Benjamin, a blood disease, supposed Kabbalah references, and philosophical musings galore, and you’ve got one heck of a mess — just the latest in Ritchie’s filmography before his next crime pic.

Thus concludes our latest round-up of new releases. Remember your Latin: “Nam et ipsa scientia potestas es.”

First, Disney ordered you to Step Up, and you complied. Then, they demanded that you Step Up 2 the Streets — and you did that, too. You know what comes next, right?

Yes, gang, the House That Walt Built is brewing up Step Up 3-D.

Variety reports that Disney has inked a deal with Offspring Entertainment, the company behind the Step Up franchise, keeping the company under the Disney mantle for another three years. The move comes after Step Up 2 the Streets earned back its $20 million production budget in its opening weekend.

Of course, fancy footwork isn’t all Offspring’s got going for it; founders Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot also brought the studio titles such as Sandra Bullock‘s Premonition and the upcoming Zac Efron comedy Seventeen, not to mention the following crowded development slate:

Among the projects that Offspring is developing at Disney are “Undateable,” a comedy scripted by Jack Angelo and Sam Brown (with Fuse Entertainment also producing); “Monday, Monday,” a Flint Wainess-scripted comedy that is a teenage “Groundhog Day“; “Wish,” a live-action “Aladdin” scripted by Bill Kelly (“Enchanted“); a Jason Filardi-scripted “Topper” remake that Offspring will produce with Mandeville, with Steve Martin starring; and a Don Scott-scripted remake of “All of Me” that has Queen Latifah attached to star.

Critics have loved Amy Adams since her Junebug days, but now that she’s charmed audiences on a larger scale with Enchanted, she’s finding herself in demand for more high-profile projects.

Next on the list, according to Variety, is a role in Night at the Museum 2, the sequel to — you guessed it — 2006’s Night at the Museum, the Ben Stiller comedy that went on to over $573 million in worldwide grosses.

We repeat: $573 million.

Anyway, yeah, 20th Century Fox is excited for the sequel’s May start — and who wouldn’t be, with a synopsis like the one published by Variety?

Pic kicks off when the artifacts from the Museum of Natural History are boxed up and sent to the archives at the Smithsonian in Washington. Adams will play an undetermined historical figure who has a crush on security guard Larry (Stiller).

As with the first Museum, Shawn Levy will direct from a script by Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon — with help from Scott Frank, who, according to Variety, wrote “the most recent draft.”

Before making goo-goo eyes at Stiller, Adams will be seen in Sunshine Cleaning, which features no Dick Van Dyke or animated dinosaur skeletons, but earned positive reviews at Sundance anyway.
