CATEGORIES Movie NewsMoviefone's Blu-ray of the Week "Naked Lunch" Criterion Collection What's It About? William S. Borroughs's landmark ode to drug use was never going to be coherently adapted for the big screen, so visionary sci-fi director David Cronenberg did the next best thing with a surreal, meta take on the writer's own hallucination-filled life. See It Because: It's probably one of the most underrated movies of the 1990s and visually on-par with the weirdness of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas"; the Criterion Collection upgrades the movie's rich color palette, and packs this edition with looks at the movie's unsettling special effects and its real-life inspiration.
New on DVD & Blu-ray "Down the Shore" What's It About? James Gandolfini stars in a New Jersey-set drama about small-town lives, that sat on the shelf for years before finally finding its way on DVD; if you watch it, you'll see why. In or Out?: Out
"The Girl" What's It About? Toby Jones stars in the other Alfred Hitchcock biopic from 2012 -- this one an HBO film following his complicated relationship with Tippi Hedren -- that focuses less on the director's unique, quirky life story, and more on soap opera-level Hollywood "drama." In or Out?: Out
"Hyde Park on Hudson" What's It About? Bill Murray as FDR in a comedic re-telling of the President's meeting with King George VI seems like a cannot-miss movie... but it misses big time, by being oddly boring. In or Out: Out
"The Kitchen" What's It About? "That '70s Show" star Laura Prepon headlines an indie ensemble comedy about a young woman celebrating her 30th birthday and the "wacky hijinks" caused by her friends and family. Unfortunately, her birthday's ruined by film school-level moviemaking littered with professional actors. In or Out: Out
"The Sorcerer and the White Snake" What's It About? In this CGI-heavy martial arts film (that's light on real stunt choreography), Jet Li stars as an ancient wizard that battles with a snake woman over a man's soul. Oh, so the title wasn't a metaphor. In or Out: Out
