DVD Picks – June 24, 2008

A lot of great independent films are coming out on DVD this week. My main pick of these would be In Bruges, the darkly humourous heist film, which I found a pleasant surprise earlier in the year.

(Edit: I found out the hard way — i.e. no DVDs in the store — that the Canadian release of the DVD is not until next week – at least according to Amazon.)

Also being released this week are the Academy-nominated animated film Persepolis, the high school film Charlie Bartlett, and John Sale’s musical drama Honeydripper.

For those of you looking for the more mainstream releases, this week sees the release of Roland Emmerich’s 10,000 BC, the family-oriented Spiderwick Chronicles, and the romantic comedy Definitely, Maybe.

Finally, for Futurama fans, this week sees the release of the new direct-to-dvd movie The Beast with a Billion Backs.

And that’s the DVD picks for this week.
