This Week's DVD/Blu-ray Choice, 19th July

Excluding The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (a film i have yet to see), the rest of this week's releases are surprisingly decent. The remake of George A. Romero's The Crazies and the sequel to hit family comedy Nanny McPhee gaining honorable mentions, but the joint two i have picked are as follows.

My joint two are:
-Donnie Darko: Theatrical & Director's Cut

Seductive, sexually-charged thriller Chloe is released this week, with Amanda Seyfried (from Mean Girls and Mamma Mia fame) channeling her inner adult as she is hired by curious wife Julianne Moore as she suspects her husband, Liam Neeson, having an affair. Moore and Seyfried sizzle in every scene they're featured in, with a delightfully devious, but sensually dazzling, performance from Seyfried. A DVD purchase is fine.

Donnie Darko, a cult favourite, is being re-released this week on blu-ray, containing both the theatrical and director's cut editions of the much-loved indie flick. The end of the world is near in Richard Kelly's critically acclaimed feature, with Jake Gyllenhaal earning his stardom as Donnie, a troubled teen whose visions of a large bunny rabbit named Frank manipulates him to commit a series of crimes.
