Are you in the mood for an action fest? How about a sweet animated children's movie? Perhaps you prefer something with more heft, like an Italian arthouse flick. Whatever your taste, this week's DVD releases have you covered. Take a look.
Based on the DC Comic character, Josh Brolin stars as Jonah Hex, a bristly outlaw with a hole in his face. His mission: to seek vengeance on Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich), the man responsible for the murders of his wife and child. Oh, and Hex can also speak to the dead. Megan Fox steps in as the antihero's rough and tough leading lady, but it's Brolin who stands out. As Hex, he's more interesting to watch than the action of the film itself. The DVD extras include deleted scenes.
How to Train Your Dragon
Jay Baruchel provides the voice of Hiccup, a young Viking who befriends a dragon — the very creature he's supposed to be hunting. The animated film stayed at the top of the box office for weeks and garnered good reviews. With a sequel in the works already, we might have a franchise on our hands. Bonus features include a filmmakers' commentary and two featurettes.
