Crazy, Stupid, Love
When a 40-something guy (Steve Carell) is dumped by his wife (Julianne Moore), it’s up to a handsome player (handsome Ryan Gosling) to get him back into the dating game and, more importantly, into Marisa Tomei. (Warner Bros.)

Tabloid
Errol Morris documents the strange-but-true-but-still-damned-strange story of Joyce McKinney, a former Miss Wyoming embroiled in dirty pictures, stalking, Mormon kidnapping, bondage and, of course, cloning. (IFC Films)

Bunraku
A mysterious drifter (Josh Hartnett) rolls into a terrorized town and, with the help of a bartender (Woody Harrelson), acts to take down the local crime boss (Ron Perlman) and his old lady (Demi Moore). Not anime, but close. (Arc)

Californication: Season 4
Hank’s (David Duchovny) in trouble with the law, which makes his new book a hot item and brings out even more women to bang (including Carla Gugino, Addison Timlin and Callie Thorne). It’s tough being Hank. (Paramount)

An Invisible Sign
Jessica Alba stars as an introverted, quirky math teacher who inspires her school and finds love with an equally ridiculously good-looking science teacher (Chris Messina). It’s Dead Poets Society meets Honey. (IFC Films)

More New DVD Releases (Nov. 1)
Amazon Falls, Boy Toy, Cars 2, The Craigslist Killer, Luther: Season 2, The Nutcracker: The Untold Story, Snow Flower & The Secret Fan, Trespass, Water for Elephants

I know there are a lot of Steve Carell fans out there, but I
don’t normally get into anything he does, but in Crazy, Stupid, Love, I found
him to be pretty amusing. So was the rest of the cast too. I was actually hesitant
to even rent this one, what with Steve Carell and that it was yet again,
another romantic comedy. But I went ahead and put it in my Blockbuster Movie
Pass queue anyway, which
is great ‘no risk’ service because if it had been really bad, I could have
simply taken it in for an in-store exchange. Luckily though, I was pleasantly
surprised, it delivered a lot of laughs. As a DISH Network employee, I was
really excited when the Blockbuster Movie Pass came out, it’s an awesome
service that includes DVD’s, Blu-rays, and video games all by mail, instant
streaming to my receiver and computers, and 20 movie channels for $10 a month,
and with the in-store exchanges option, I feel totally confident taking risks
on movies I wouldn’t normally bother with. It’s really rounded out my
entertainment options.
