New DVD Releases
Posted 04.22.08 by reelz
The virally-marketed sci-fi blockbuster Cloverfield leads off this week's DVD Tuesday, allowing those of you who didn't stay till the end of the closing credits a chance to see what got audiences so excited. Other releases include the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror flick The Orphanage (which our own Heather Huntington positively adored); Tamara Jenkins' dramedy The Savages, featuring an Oscar-nominated performance from Laura Linney; and the Japanese horror remake One Missed Call.
Our pick for the week is the uproariously funny Charlie Wilson's War, starring Tom Hanks as the swaggering Texas congressman who almost single-handedly defeated the Soviets in Afghanistan. Included on the disc is a cool featurette profiling the real Charlie Wilson.
