Haywire - The fight for truth and justice is never an easy one. Especially when you work in intelligence. Mallory Kane (Gina Carrano) always took the jobs no one else would take. She takes an assignment to save a man in China who has valuable information. She completes the job but finds out later that the people she works for are also dealing with terrorists. Now, she goes on the run and is blamed for killing the man she just saved. Can Mallory find the evidence she needs to clear her name and stop the people she works for? Directed by Steven Soderburgh. Some other DVDd of his include “The Ocean’s” trilogy (Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve, and Ocean’s Thirteen), “The Mexican,” and “Out of Sight.” now on DVD in stores now.
Joyful Noise - It’s never easy when you have two people who want the same thing but disagree on how to get it done. Vi (Queen Latifah) has just been appointed to direct the Church’s choir. Vi thinks that everything with the choir is just fine but GG (Dolly Parton) thinks the choir needs to be updated and it’s time to try new things. At first, the two stubborn ladies don’t really see eye to eye. As time goes by, things start to click and Vi thinks maybe some new ways might not be so bad. Can GG make Vi see the light? Check out a few DVDs of Parton in stores now including “9 to 5,” “Steel Magnolias,” and “Straight Talk.”
