“We’re the other grandparents!” So exclaims Diane Decker (Bette Midler) after she discovers that her daughter’s family has only a single picture of she and her husband, Artie (Billy Crystal) over the fireplace. Though invited to watch over their grandchildren while Alice (Marisa Tomei) and her husband go on a much-needed vacation, Artie and Diane quickly come to the conclusion that they were a last resort, and that frankly Alice doesn’t really trust them with her three young kids. Can Artie and Diane take advantage of this opportunity to finally bond with their daughter’s children and earn Alice’s trust, or have they bitten off more than they can chew?

Rating: 4 / 5 stars
Peter Jackson’s long awaited adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved fantasy novel is finally here, nearly a decade after the last installment in Jackson’s magnificent Lord of the Rings trilogy was released to cinemas in 2003. That’s quite a wait. The question is, was it worth it?

December 18 is another big date for the home video market, as the new version of Total Recall is set to be released on DVD. Total Recall circa 2012 is yet another Hollywood remake, this time of a popular film from 1990 starring the great Arnold Schwarzenegger. The original Total Recall may not be Schwarzenegger’s best action film, but it is highly entertaining with a clever script and remains quite popular today.

The Dark Knight Rises
DVD Release: Dec. 4, 2012
This week, the biggest new release isn’t coming out in the cinema. Not by a long shot. At long last, The Dark Knight Rises, the concluding chapter in director Christopher Nolan’s ambitious trilogy of Batman films, explodes onto the home video market. I almost envy those of you who didn’t see it on the big screen earlier this year, because you have the joy of watching it for the first time to look forward to. Some of you may be nonplussed. You fear it can’t possibly be as good as 2008’s The Dark Knight, with its legendary turn as the Joker by the late, great Heath Ledger.
