Gran Torino
In his last acting stint, Clint Eastwood dances behind and in front of the camera playing a racist Korean War vet who faces his prejudices after a Hmong teen tries to steal his beloved Gran Torino. James Rocchi said: "Gran Torino is, bluntly, a pretty good film -- sleek and brawny like the title car, but a little clumsy on the corners and with no small amount of knock in its dramatic engine." Rent it on DVD or Blu-ray.

The International
When you mix Run Lola Run helmer Tom Tykwer and Clive Owen, you get The International -- an action thriller where Owen plays an Interpol agent itching to battle corruption in the world's largest banks. In his review, William Goss said: "Throughout, The International is a thankfully, skillfully mature effort by Tykwer to produce a proper thriller for adults, that of a man on a mission, and one lent little extra resonance in our cash-strapped times." Buy it on DVD or Blu-ray.

Crossing Over
Not all Harrison Ford films get slapped on the big screen with a bang. There's the multi-story immigration drama Crossing Over. But it's not exactly a little-known gem, according to Jeffrey M. Anderson: "Crossing Over is a bad movie ... about as airless and preachy as movies come." Skip it.

Were the World Mine
Winner of Outstanding US Dramatic Feature at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, Were the World Mine follows a boys' school production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Better yet, an all-boys musical version led by the wonderfully weird Wendy Robie (Twin Peaks).

Spinning Into Butter
Sarah Jessica Parker isn't always building big closets for her shoes. In 2007, her indie film Spinning Into Butter opened the National Conference on Race, Reparation, and Reconciliation, a film that Variety called "the kind of earnest, talky, modestly scaled social-issue pic that seems predestined for the smallscreen."

Fatal Attraction
The classic, disturbing thriller of marital infidelity, Fatal Attraction gets only an okay release on Blu-ray. According to HighDefDigest, the video has transferred nicely, but the sound is problematic and the supplements are just copied from the 2002 release.

Indecent Proposal
More lasciviousness from Fatal Attraction director Adrian Lyne with this release, but even less to chew on beyond the film -- just a commentary with Lyne.

Powder Blue

Blu-ray.com calls the film "a meandering, anticlimactic dry-heave that attempts to examine loneliness and heartache with all the finesse and subtlety of a toddler with an air horn." But if you like that sort of thing, the video and sound are solid, with the same special features as the DVD.

Also Out: Baby on Board, Fired Up! Unrated, The Siege, Predator 2
