DVD/Blu-ray Releases — 5/8/2012

New options for your home viewing this week:

The Vow touches upon the possibility that Paige (Rachel McAdams) might be annoyed with life she’s forgotten.  After all, before she met Leo (Channing Tatum), she was a law student with a fiancé and a promising life ahead of her.  Then she decided she’d had enough (The reason is eventually explained) and started a less lucrative career as an artist and married Leo.  Now, she’s forgotten everything after a car accident and thinks her life the way it was pre-Leo.  The movie is circular in nature, since Paige must obviously return to were she was at the start.  By the time the only section of the story with dramatic potential arrives, it’s already over.  My review is here.  Available on DVD and Blu-ray.

An exercise in comic nihilism, Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie imagines it’s pushing boundaries of taste and comic sensibility.  The dullard pair relies so heavily on the most basic “rules” of comedy and an adolescent mindset that the movie is as tedious as it is bizarre.  My review is here.  Available on DVD, Blu-ray, and DVD/Blu-ray Combo.
