I suppose Sex Tape had good intentions to be a racy adult comedy and on the surface with Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, not to mention supporting roles by Rob Cordory and Ellie Kemper, one would think it’d work on some level but instead it’s a laugh-less flick with maybe only one memorable scene while the rest is throwaway material.

Any Given Sunday is an engaging movie that many sports, especially NFL, will enjoy and not only holds up today, but kind of predicts a few trends that have permeated college and pro football. The Blu-ray released by Warner is a retread of the previous release only adding a single bonus feature which, while nice, is hardly worth the price of a double-dip.

The Other Woman takes its time at the start but picks the pace up once Diaz and Mann join forces making for a fun movie with some funny scenes amidst a few heartfelt moments as well. The performances from Diaz and Mann are both fantastic and got to give kudos to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau for having to play a thoroughly bad douche with no redeeming values whatsoever.

Much like the “DreamWorks Spooky Stories” released a few weeks back, this Holiday collection is great for the entire family. It’s especially cool to get the main actors to reprise their roles for the animated shorts while the animation looks amazing. The audio/video transfers are great and a fine upgrade over the DVD versions. It’s light on features but if you can snag this for under $10, then it would be worth it.

The DreamWorks Spooky Stories has a nice collection of shorts that the entire family will enjoy. The Blu-ray offers up excellent audio and video transfers but the features have much to be desired. While most of these were previously available on DVD, it’s still nice to have them all on one disc.

By no means is Bad Teacher a good film but Cameron Diaz, as well as Jason Segel for his limited part, gave it their best in spite of a script with few laughs and a flat plot that never really came to life. The Blu-ray itself has an OK set of features but good audio/video transfers. I suppose if you’re a fan of the movie, it might be worth checking out… but only via rental.

This “Halloween Party DVD Pack” containing Scared Shrekless and Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space are both fun animated shorts for all ages. Not sure if they’ll become some sort of a yearly ritual viewing but both are worth checking out if you haven’t already. While the combined running time is under an hour, the set is prices around $15 and might be worth picking up especially if you’re a fan of either films.

Shrek: The Whole Story 4-disc box set may not be perfect in terms of features, but the audio and video transfers are all great and worthy of an upgrade over their DVD counterparts. As for the movies themselves, it may not be to the level of Pixar’s Toy Story movies but even the weaker third entry was at least bearable.

Knight and Day is a fun action flick that knows what it is and is not. The plot isn’t the least bit complicated and the primary villain, despite being played by a capable actor, is hardly a worthy adversary to the heroes. Meanwhile, as Cruise approaches into his 50s, the man probably hasn’t looked better playing the action hero we all know and love from the 90s and seems to be having a great time.

Here are the preliminary box office numbers for the weekend of July 25th to the 27th:

  1. Toy Story 3 – $59.0m (-46.5%) / $226.6m
  2. Grown Ups – $41.0m (new) / $41.0m
  3. Knight & Day – $20.5m (new) / $27.8m
  4. The Karate Kid – $15.4m (-48.5%) / $135.6m
  5. The A-Team – $6.0m (-58.3%) / $62.8m

….

10. Jonah Hex – $1.6m (-70.3%) / $9.1m

Personal Thoughts:
Ouch for Jonah Hex, at this point Warner must be praying that Saint Christopher Nolan comes through for them again after he made 2008 a year to remember after The Dark Knight‘s massive box office. I’m certain Inception won’t be that big, but it certainly has the possibility of breaking out, but seeing how this summer has been, I’d be surprised to see it make it past even Batman Begin‘s $205 million domestic take. Will it follow Summer 2010’s trend or be next to Toy Story 3 as a breakout? Good news for Warner is, they’ve got part 1 of the final Harry Potter movie coming this November…

Richard Kelly is a talented and unique writer. Even his disappointing sophomore picture, Southland Tales had vision and flare and although it never could measure up to Donnie Darko, I could at least appreciate portions of it. Outside of some individual scenes, The Box doesn’t have much going for it.

This is truly an awful movie, and the only reason I gave this half a star is due to Diaz trying to fake a southern accent. It truly is the only reason to bother with viewing this muck.

Here is the trailer for the Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz action/comedy, Knight and Day, coming July 2, 2010.

 

Well, apparently someone doesn’t want this trailer be to be embedded, I checked 4 or 5 others and those were disabled as well. Sorry about that, but at least you can click the link and view on YouTube.com
