‘Amour,’ ‘Epic’ Arrive on DVD, Blu-ray

Forrest Hartman

The adoration heaped on writer-director Michael Haneke's "Amour" is one of the great mysteries of the 2012 movie awards season. The intimate drama, which is presented in French with English subtitles, won best foreign language film at the Oscars, Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. It was also named best overall film by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and National Society of Film Critics. 

‘Devil’s Backbone,’ ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ Arrive on DVD, Blu-ray

Forrest Hartman

With “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” – a sequel to 2010’s “The Rise of Cobra” –Reese, Wernick and director Jon M. Chu seem to resign themselves to the fact that the project is so over-the-top that a truly great movie would be impossible. So, they do the best with what they have. The result is a smash-bang action film that shoots first and thinks later. This doesn’t make “Retaliation” good, but it does make it moderately entertaining.
