Buddies, Boleyns and Bullies in DVD
In DVD this week, there's the buddy film The Bucket List. Two men with a cancer diagnosis go on the adventure of a lifetime. The medical scenes are intense, but this is worth seeing. The Other Boleyn Girl tells the brutal story of how Henry VIII treated women like objects. History in very simple terms. Funny Games is a remake of the German classic by the same director. A brutal home invasion is a manipulative turn from a director who screws with the audience and their thirst for violence.
