This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s.
The true tale at the core of The Informant! is not one that would appear to lend itself very well to comedy, and yet in taking that approach, director Steven Soderbergh managed to craft a sly, unusual little satire that both amuses and perplexes in all the right ways. Soderbergh’s interests appear to lie less in the lysine price-fixing conspiracy that the story revolves around than in the peculiar actions of high-ranking executive Mark Whitacre, presenting an ever-evolving portrait of a goofy, naïve, affable and possibly deranged whistleblower. Viewers will likely feel uneasy at the way the film is presented from Whitacre’s perspective, providing endless stream-of-consciousness anecdotes about corn, polar bears and ’90s corporate thrillers, and yet never giving you a strong sense of what his motives are or what exactly he’s trying to accomplish. The longer the film moves forward though, the more it becomes clear that that’s exactly the point; not even Whitacre is sure why he does the things he does, and it isn’t until he runs out of lies to tell that he stops running his mouth long enough to let that notion dawn on him. Matt Damon’s hilarious, Oscar-deserving performance conveys these facets of Whitacre perfectly, and in doing so, assists Soderbergh in the creation of one of recent cinema’s most fascinating, oddball characters.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD – Deleted scenes. Blu-ray – Includes everything on the DVD, as well as a commentary with director Steven Soderbergh and screenwriter Scott Burns, and a digital copy of the film.

Hey look, it’s another horror film for the Ed Hardy and Axe Body Spray set. The first trailer for Sorority Row, the remake of 1981’s The House on Sorority Row starring Carrie Fisher and Rumer “Jaws of Life” Willis, is ready for your hungry eyes. It’s probably not worth a quibble, but why remake this film if the fun premise of the original is being ditched: Sorority girls kill their elderly “house mother” accidentally, still reluctantly throw a bitchin’ party as scheduled, and the old bag comes back to cane them all to death? As pathetically seen here, Rumer & Co. have one of their girls play dead and then she gets hilariously tummy-stabbed IRL. Cut out the title’s “House” and cue a generic, vengeful murderer-in-hooded-poncho straight out of Like, I Know What You Did Last Summer. How much do you think this will open with at the box office? Check out the trailer after the jump.
