The indefatigable Tyler Perry once again leads this week's pack of DVD releases in the FOXLight. His loved and lovable Madea character gets robbed by a family of juvenile delinquents, and, true-to-form, she tracks down their only living relative, Auntie Taraji P. Nelson, and ships them off to her, in I Can Do Bad All By Myself.
The Rob Zombie-directed Halloween II picks up from the moment the first film left off, in the aftermath of the carnage left in the wake of lunatic killer Michael Myers' rampage. Zombie intended to dwarf the shock and horror of the re-booted first film. Did he succeed? You can see for yourself.
Fame was supposed to "live forever", but in this High School Musical and Glee filled world, this 2009 remake was more like "dead on arrival".
Also out this week...
The critically-acclaimed The Hurt Locker depicts a highly-trained bomb disposal team in 2004 Iraq newly led by Jeremy Renner, who plunges his team into some unwelcome and deadly combat. Bravura-filled performances include Ralph Fiennes, Guy Pearce, and David Morse.
