DVD Kisses: The Latest DVD Release for Tuesday, 12/23/08 

First, we have "BURN AFTER READING." Not the best Coen Brothers' film, but it still entertains!

We also have "THE WOMEN" starring Meg Ryan and Anette Benning. Just a so-so flick that's inferior to the original George Cukor 1939 classic.

And of course, "DEATH RACE" the remake starring Jason Statham. The race scenes are well-shot and choreographed, and Joan Allen is fun to watch! Check my interviews with the cast right here.
