Public Enemies and Inglourious Basterds, oh my!

My last few posts have been me rambling about how excited I am for Halloween, but now I have a reason to look forward to December!

My two favorite movies from the summer will be released on DVD within a week of each other.  SCORE.

“Public Enemies” will be available on Dec. 8, followed by “Inglourious Basterds” on Dec. 17.

Trust me, I could go on a rant of how awesome I think both are, but I will spare you my commentary.  For now, that is…

Instead, I’ll give you a two sentence summary and preview for each.

“Public Enemies” is directed by Michael Mann and stars Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Marion Cotillard.  It’s the true story of 1930s American gangster John Dillinger (Depp) and the cat-and-mouse game he plays with the FBI, most notably agent Melvin Purvis (Bale).

“Inglourious Basterds” is directed by Quentin Tarantino and stars Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz and Eli Roth.  It takes place in France during World War II, where a group of Jewish-American soldiers called “The Basterds” go on a Nazi killing spree.

Check back in December for DVD reviews!!
