New on DVD & Blu-ray "Chasing Mavericks" What's It About? Gerard Butler doesn't quite shine in this "inspirational" surfing drama that seems all too familiar. See It Because: Skip it.
"Freaky Deaky" What's It About? It's a Christian Slater movie... Hang on kimosabe! Christian Slater in 2013. See It Because: Skip it.
"Holy Motors" What's It About? Eva Mendes and Kylie Minogue co-star in this French film about a mysterious man who walks through a secret door in his home and travels through a series of alternate lives, posing as a variety of figures. That's probably the easiest way to describe this trippy, but visually-engrossing fantasy. See It Because: If you can handle it... see it.
"How to Survive a Plague" What's It About? It didn't win the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature this weekend, but this look at the efforts to raise awareness for those afflicted with HIV/AIDS is an emotional, intense, and ultimately inspiring examination of activism. See It Because: See it.
"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2" What's It About? It's... it's like diamonds. See It Because: Critical reviews are irrelevant for this grand finale to the "Twilight Saga."
