Your Mid-Week Guide To DVD And Streaming: '6 Souls' Leads A Really Slow Week

6 Souls

Once again, my dear friend Morton Salt is away from his desk with more pressing matters – his car is rolling down a hill and he’s running after it in just a bath towel – so I’m here to let you know what’s new at the old Red Box and NetFlix this week. It’s a… light week. In fact, it’s so light that I really haven’t heard of any of these movies. But I’m also an eccentric shut-in, living in fear of the government, so I’ve just been watching old VHS tapes of MTV’s Alternative Nation for the past 10 years, waiting for the aliens to rescue me.

That said, hitting shelves this week are:

6 Souls

Venus and Serena

Inescapable

Tai Chi Hero

The House I Live In

Least Among Saints

Blood Runs Cold

Wiener Dog Nationals

Tower Block

Best of Warner Bros. 20 Film Collection Comedy

So why don’t we slip into something more comfortable and decide what we should watch tonight? Here, have some more Zima.

6 Souls 2

6 Souls

After the death of her husband, Dr. Cara Harding’s (Julianne Moore) faith in God has been shaken, but not her belief in science. In an attempt to open her up to accepting unexplainable psychiatric theories, her father introduces her to Adam, a patient with multiple personalities who takes on some of the physical characteristics of his other personalities. Cara quickly discovers that Adam’s other personalities are murder victims and the more she finds out about him and his past, the closer she and her loved ones are to becoming murder victims themselves.

Should You Watch It? I had no clue this was ever even made. That can’t be a good sign. Then again, someone just told me that I “have to watch” something called Citizen Kane, so I guess anything is worthy of a shot.

Venus and Serena

Venus and Serena

Venus and Serena takes an unfiltered look into the remarkable lives of the greatest sister-act professional tennis has ever seen. In a sport where they were not welcomed, the indomitable Williams sisters faced the opposition with grace and courage not only breaking new ground for female and African American athletes everywhere, but dominating the women’s game for over a decade. The film tells the inspiring story of how these two women, against all odds, but with the help of visionary parents, made it to the top. Venus and Serena also explores the struggle of these two aging superstars during the 2011 tennis season as they battle life and career-threatening health problems. In Venus and Serena we gain unprecedented access into the sisters’ lives – both in the spotlight and behind closed doors – and we watch as they draw their greatest strengths from one another to overcome countless adversities.

Should You Watch It? It’s not like you can watch them play at Wimbledon right now. BURNNNNNNN.
