Today's New DVDs- 6/23/09

Waltz with Bashir: A terrific hybrid of documentary, narrative, and stunning animation; it's quite unlike anything I've ever seen, and I mean that in the most purely complimentary sense. Well worth picking up, and the Blu-ray is gorgeous.

The Code:See exactly how far Morgan Freeman will go for a paycheck in this laughably bad heist caper. Co-starring a nearly-unintelligable Antonio Banderas and the usually great Robert Forster, in a role so bad you literally feel sorry for him.

John Lennon & The Plastic Ono Band- Live in Toronto '69: Half of a great show, as classic rockers precede John, Clapton, and Klaus Voorman to the stage for a rip-roaring set of chestnuts. And then they let Yoko get in on the action.

Pink Panther 2: I didn't actually see this one. But I learned my fucking lesson from the "original" Pink Panther remake; it's not only the worst movie Steve Martin has ever made (and that's quite an accomplishment these days), but it's particularly bad compared with even the worst of the other "Panther" pictures.
