Cloverfield

(2007) PG-13
A going-away party in Manhattan is interrupted when a mysterious, giant-sized monster launches an attack on New York City. With camcorder in hand, a small group of friends make their way out into the chaotic streets, scrambling to stay alive. Mike Vogel, Lizzy Caplan, Jessica Lucas, Michael Stahl-David, Odet Jasmin and T.J. Miller co-star in this action-thriller produced by J.J. Abrams, creator of the hit television series “Alias” and “Lost.” Blu-Ray and DVD. Maxim’s review.

There Will Be Blood

(2007) R
At the turn of the 20th century, Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis, in an Oscar-winning role) becomes a tycoon when he buys the oil rights to a California family’s ranch. Meanwhile, as the simple village becomes a boomtown, a charismatic young preacher (Paul Dano) fights his community’s growing greed. Kevin J. O’Connor, Ciarán Hinds and Russell Harvard co-star in writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson’s Oscar-nominated adaptation of Upton Sinclair’s novel Oil! DVD, Blu-Ray, Two-Disk special collector’s edition. Maxim’s review.

Patton

(1970) PG
Gen. George S. Patton (George C. Scott) earned the nickname “Blood and Guts” for his determination on the battlefield. This epic-scale production follows the commander as he guides his troops across Africa and Europe, illuminating a man whose life was defined by war. Director Franklin J. Schaffner’s multiple Oscar winner is a character study masquerading as a World War II film, with astonishing combat scenes and reflection on Patton’s inner life. Blu-Ray.

Dirty Harry: Ultimate Collecto’s Edition

(1971) R
When a madman dubbed the “Scorpio killer” terrorizes San Francisco, hard-boiled cop Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) — famous for his take-no-prisoners approach to law enforcement — must hunt down the psycho. In the course of rescuing a kidnap victim, Harry collars Scorpio, but he walks on technicalities. Not to worry … the maverick detective aims to nail the maniac himself. Blu-Ray and DVD.
