Time to tee off, Patrollers! The DVD Patrol has been cruising the highways, byways, and fairways to make sure our game is as good as it’s ever been. The Hall of Famer of the Patrol himself, the Toddster, has been a bit busy but not too busy doing what he does best. Our next Toddster Team-Up is just a couple of weeks away with our salute to sequels. (There are some sequels out there that are quite good.) More on that down on the road. Here we go to set up our game. Let’s shoot!
New on DVD
From Paris with Love - Everybody dreams of getting their big break whether they’re competing on “American Idol” or starting the next big step on the job. That’s what James Reece (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) dreams of while working at the American Embassy in Paris. He gets his shot when they team him with Undercover Agent Charlie Wax (John Travolta) who does anything and everything to get the job done. James may be in over his head while working with Charlie. Does James have what it takes to finish it and keep up with Charlie at the same time? Some favorites of Travolta’s that the Toddster can recommend include “Swordfish,” “Broken Arrow,” and “Be Cool” (with Uma Thurman).
Shutter Island - There are always stories of places that can never be broken into or no one can escape from. Don’t believe them. There is always a way. Just ask Marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio). Based on the best selling book. Daniels is called to Shutter Island. The island is supposed to be a place where no one can escape from. An inmate has just escaped and Daniels and his partner Chuck (Mark Ruffalo) have been assigned to the case. Also, Daniels discovers that the man who killed his wife is also imprisoned at the Island. Can he solve the case and keep his mind on the job with an even bigger mystery looming on the horizon? DiCaprio has just teamed with Director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight) for a new suspense thriller called “Inception” coming to theaters in July. Also, my sources have just confirmed that not only is Nolan working on the next Batman movie set for 2012 but he is also part of a new Superman movie currently in development.
