CATEGORIES Movie NewsMoviefone's New Release Pick of the Week "The FP" What's It About? In a hyper-ridiculous society that bares a few similarities to our own, a mysterious eye-patch-wearing hero battles evil gang leaders in "Dance, Dance Revolution"-style combat where only one man walks away. See It Because: Is it cheesy? Absolutely. Is it technically good? Not really. But an over-the-top midnight movie like this is perfect for a get-together with friends.
Moviefone's Blu-ray Pick of the Week "Evita," "Newsies," and "Sister Act 1" & "2" Anniversary Editions What's It About? They were crowd-pleasers then, and they're crowd-pleasers now; four musical hits from the '90s are already eligible for "Anniversary editions." See It Because: They're entertaining as hell. (Also, did we mention you could win all four for free in our giveaway?)
New on DVD & Blu-ray "And Everything is Going Fine" (Criterion Collection) What's It About? Steven Soderbergh's documentary of Spalding Gray, the acclaimed playwright/performance artist who commited suicide in 2004, is a celebratory and bittersweet look into the artist's psyche. See It or Skip It: See it. (Also Available on Amazon Instant Video)
"Big Miracle" What's It About? This true story tale, of a small-town effort to rescue three whales trapped under Alaskan ice, features enough great character actors and better-than-you-expect writing to raise it above schmaltz. See It or Skip It: See it. (Also Available on Amazon Instant Video)
"Cat Run" What's It About? The director of "Into the Blue" and "Blue Crush" makes a crime caper starring the ridiculously sexy Paz Vega that is ridiculously shallow. See It or Skip It: Skip it. (Also Available on Amazon Instant Video)
"Gray's Anatomy" (Criterion Collection) What's It About? Along with "And Everything...," Criterion has re-released Soderbergh's collaboration with Gray: a filmed version of his one-man show dealing with his health problems and his comically neurotic pursuits for alternative medicine. See It or Skip It: See it.
"Jeff, Who Lives At Home" What's It About? A great cast (Ed Helms, Jason Segel) is wasted on another quirky indie movie about old slackers and their views on life. See It or Skip It: Skip it. (Also Available on Redbox DVD & Blu-ray | Amazon Instant Video)
"Project X" What's It About? Making a teen sex party movie by framing it as a found-footage mockumentary, is the perfect way to amplify the R-rated crassness, logic be damned. But the fact that life has imitated art -- and real kids have tried to ape the movie's out-of-control party scenario -- has turned this little comedy into a weird examination of modern teen id. See It or Skip It: See it, for psychological insight. (Also Available on Amazon Instant Video)
"Seeking Justice" What's It About? Nic Cage. Action movie. We thought it was direct-to-video; turns out it wasn't. Yikes. See It or Skip It: Skip it. (Also Available on Redbox)
"Wanderlust" What's It About? It tanked at the box office, and it wasn't as funny as Paul Rudd and director David Wain's last team-up ("Role Models"), but it's funny enough for a viewing. See It or Skip It: See it. (Also Available on Amazon Instant Video)
