SHE’S OUT OF MY LEAGUE
Nobody will ever acknowledge this, but She’s Out of My League is likely to do more good for the world than a movie like Precious or Milk ever could. The latter are films that, while well-intentioned, have almost no chance of broadcasting their message to an audience that doesn’t already agree with what they have to say. She’s Out of My League, however, sells itself on the exact premise it seeks to admonish. The marketing campaign was built entirely around the conceit of applying a number value to people (“How could a 10 go for a 5?”), apparently playing on our current generation’s abhorrently shallow societal outlook for an easy laugh. Instead, it tells the story of how that sort of bullshit causes a self-doubting nice guy to nearly sabotage his relationship. Its examination of the effect that this unfortunate cultural development has been having on people’s sense of self-worth doesn’t overshadow its affection for goofy humor, but it’s far more honest and intelligent than its moronic trailer would have you believe. And funnier, too.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD & Blu-ray – Commentary by director Jim Field Smith, deleted scenes, an extended ending, a blooper reel, and a Devon’s Dating Show dating guide for guys.

The Last Station Movie Trailer

The Last Station

Sony Pictures Classics has finally released a trailer for Michael Hoffman‘s The Last Station, a biopic about Russian author Leo Tolstoy. Described in the promotional material as being a “complex, funny, rich, emotional, and true story about the difficulty of living with love and the impossibility of living without it”, the movie stars Christopher Plummer as Tolstoy and is joined by an all-star cast including James McAvoy as Valentin Bulgakov, Paul Giamatti as Vladimir Chertkov, and Helen Mirren as Sofya Tolstoy. I’m not a big fan of most dramatic period pieces, so I’ll leave the commentary to you (although, it would hard to go wrong with a cast that strong). Watch the trailer after the jump and leave your thoughts in the comments below.
