Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - MOVIES - with Craig Miller

RAN­CID ( MA)

Stars: Michael Thomp­son, Bran­don Auret Di­rec­tor: Alas­tair Orr Avail­able: Wed­nes­day on DVD and BD A quar­tet of strangers vol­un­teer for a med­i­cal treat­ment trial in a mys­te­ri­ous fa­cil­ity and get more than they bar­gained for in this low bud­get hor­ror/ thriller which starts off ef­fec­tively enough but weak­ens as the plot and blood- let­ting un­folds.

WARM BOD­IES ( M)

Stars: Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer Di­rec­tor: Jonathan Levine

Avail­able: Wed­nes­day on DVD and BD Ro­man­ti­cis­ing vam­pires is one thing but zom­bies ... c’mon, just let them eat. That said this un­usual and unique tale of a zom­bie fall­ing for a young woman he saves from an at­tack is a charm­ing genre mash- up.

IDEN­TITY THIEF ( M)

Stars: Ja­son Bate­man, Melissa McCarthy Di­rec­tor: Seth Gor­don Avail­able: Now on DVD and BD A high con­cept com­edy that suf­fers from the Hol­ly­wood way of do­ing things, this story about a goodie- two- shoes fam­ily man try­ing to track down the crim that has stolen his iden­tity is light, dumb and most frus­trat­ingly un­funny.

OBLIV­ION ( M)

Stars: Tom Cruise, Mor­gan Free­man Di­rec­tor: Joseph Kosin­ski Avail­able: Now on DVD and BD Though it has key ele­ments in com­mon with other bet­ter sci/ fi sto­ries this Tom Cruise lead ad­ven­ture/ thriller about a fu­ture Earth aban­doned by hu­mans who are at war with scav­enger aliens is a vis­ual stunner.
