New On DVD for the Week of 8/31/08


One of my favorite films from the 2008 Phoenix Film Festival-- Helen Hunt's feature filmmaking debut Then She Found Me gets ready for its digital close-up today on DVD. Vastly superior to another new rental, Steve Conrad's atrocious dramedy The Promotion, starring John C. Reilly and Seann William Scott, when all is said and done, Found may be one of the best films released this year. As Oscar season officially begins this month (some say with the release of the next offering from The Coen Brothers who dominated the Oscars), only time will tell but until then, do yourself a favor and discover Then She Found Me starring not only Hunt but Colin Firth, Matthew Broderick, and Bette Midler.

P.S. A Note to the Feedblitz subscribers-- to answer a recent e-mail question-- lately I've been inserting video clips and trailers into my reviews.
