SURROGATES (2009)

SURROGATES avoids most of the interesting questions in exchange for shoddy action sequences.  And Bruce is wasted — they could’ve plugged anyone into this role.

THE LOVED ONES (2009)

Venue:  Home (Blu-Ray)

A great extreme horror movie from Australia.  I heard quite a bit of hype prior to checking it out, but it lived up to my expectations.  It manages to be both glossy and depraved in a way I can’t recall another movie pulling off.
