After a pretty mild few months of winter, it is finally starting to get cold enough to just want to stay home and watch a movie. So here are the new releases for Tuesday, January 22nd, 2002.
KISS OF THE DRAGON (VHSr & DVD)- This Jet Li action-fest is a good but not great Luc Besson-produced film about a Chinese government agent who becomes trapped in a deadly conspiracy while on assignment in Paris. The DVD offers audio commentary from Jet Li, co-star Bridget Fonda, and director Chris Nathon, as well as a few featurettes and storyboard to scene comparisons. What the DVD does not do is explain why Bridget Fonda is in this movie.
ROCK STAR (VHS & DVD)- The once Marky Mark, Mark Wahlberg, and Jennifer Aniston star in this story of a “…wanna be, who got to be.” You got to be skipping this one. Unless you like pure cheese. Then you should give it a shot! Just don’t shoot your TV!
