DVD Elf [DVD Boxset]  [2 discs] [Region 2]
"...A disarming holiday comedy....The sweet-natured outsider fantasy neither skimps on nor overplays its sentimentality..."Variety "...ELF returns to the hip but warm-hearted spirit of SWINGERS....[With] sophisticated glee and a sense of innocent fun..."Los Angeles Times "...Mr. Favreau's direction has a relaxed, swinging rhythm..." New York Times "...The disarming comedic tone -- silly and novel in its lack of cynicism -- is driven by the fearless, cheerful unself-consciousness of Will Ferrell..." Entertainment Weekly "...There's a devil of comedy in Ferrell, and he lets it out to play..." Rolling Stone "...Ferrell and Favreau have engendered enough goodwill to allow for a finale that glows like winter coals. A gleeful, cracked fairytale..."Total Film "Will Ferrell's man-child in tights is a surprisingly affecting figure." Sight and Sound "This is one of those rare Christmas comedies that has a heart, a brain and a wicked sense of humor, and it charms the socks right off the mantelpiece."Chicago Sun-Times
Blu-ray Iron Man 2 [Blu-ray/DVD] [Includes Digital Copy] [3 discs] [Region 1]
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Favreau keeps it all balanced and pulls off some tremendous set pieces....Best of all is Rockwell who plays the low-rent rival of Stark to the hilt..."Box Office 3 stars out of 5 -- "Things rally in time for an all-out finale, with a power-suited Downey and War Machine Cheadle taking on Rockwell's droids and Scarlett's SHIELD vixen..."Total Film 3 stars out of 4 -- [A] total blast....Rourke is a bloody wonder, spitting out his lines in an outrageous Russian accent to rival John Malkovich in ROUNDERS.Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "IRON MAN 2 is a polished, high-octane sequel....Sam Rockwell gives a wry comic performance as Hammer..."Chicago Sun-Times "Mr. Rourke composes a fugue of malevolence in his own demented key....Mr. Rourke takes possession of the movie every time he shows up."New York Times "Robert Downey Jr. is still spirited and affably snide in IRON MAN 2 as Tony Stark, the brilliant and fabulously rich inventor/superhero."USA Today "Sam Rockwell gives a lively, wry performance as Justin Hammer....Mr. Rourke is a formidable physical presence, just as he was in THE WRESTLER..."Wall Street Journal "[D]irector Jon Favreau and screenwriter Justin Theroux treat most of the scenes with a light, glancing wit....Downey is reliably funny in his runaway egotism, and Rockwell's Hammer proves the ideal adversary..." -- Grade: BA.V. Club 3 stars out of 4 -- "Like the original, IRON MAN 2 is a good time from start to finish....The action sequences are vastly improved this time, but it's the character moments you'll walk out remembering..."Premiere "[T]he film picks and mixes elements from 40 years of storylines, combining several villains to create a role for Micky Rourke as a tattooed, gold-toothed Russian genius/brawler....Rourke is interestingly matched against Robert Downey Jr..."Sight and Sound
Blu-ray Iron Man [Blu-ray]  [1 disc] [not used]
3 stars out of 4 -- "In IRON MAN, Downey's likably snide playboy character is cut from the same anti-hero cloth as Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow..."USA Today "[Favreau] draws on his humanistic gifts to make IRON MAN a compellingly down-to-earth superhero fantasy..." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly "There's winning comedy in Stark's suit-making misadventures, involving a dash of Wile E. Coyote slapstick and some terrific deadpanning from Downey Jr.. And the acting-powerhouse cast doesn't disappoint."Empire "The well-crafted IRON MAN is one of the smartest superhero films to come down the pike in some time....Robert Downey Jr. again reveal why he is one of the best actors of his generation..."Chicago Sun-Times "[A]n unusually good superhero picture....The film benefits from a script that generally chooses clever dialogue over manufactured catchphrases...and also from a crackerjack cast that accepts the filmmakers's invitation to do some real acting..."New York Times "It has Downey's spirited turn going for it, as well as rousing sequences of various models of Iron Man armour in action....It makes a lot of clever decisions..."Sight and Sound 3 stars out of 4 -- "Seeing Downey and Bridges duel is one of the film's primary delights..."Premiere "[I]t's got an energetic, engaging performance by Robert Downey Jr....This part has been nicely tailored to Downey's talents and is a great deal of fun as a result."Los Angeles Times 4 stars out of 5 -- "A cad-to-crusader origin story, it's funny, smart, charming -- all the attributes of its star."Total Film
DVD The Break-Up [DVD] [Widescreen Edition]
3 stars out of 4 -- "Credit Vaughn and Aniston for dropping the glam act and joining writers Jeremy Garelick and Jay Lavender in the risky task of turning a formula sex comedy on its empty head....This is WAR OF THE ROSES, where laughs take no prisoners." Rolling Stone "[Vaughn] is reliably fleet and funny....The movie is at its most limber in the scenes between Vaughn and Jon Favreau..." Los Angeles Times 3 stars out of 5 -- "Vaughn and Fav are still money when it comes to comic improv: check out the gold they mine in their final shared scene." Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "THE BREAK-UP is an interesting, often surprising film....The barbs are quick, nasty and real....The stars' chemistry is compelling to watch."Premiere
