DVDs of the week: Unknown, Just Go With It
Pick of the Week: Unknown
Cast Liam Neeson, January Jones, Diane Kruger, Aidan Quinn
Director Jaume Collet-Serra
Liam Neeson returns to the older action man niche he's proved rather brilliant at, starring as Dr Martin Harris, who awakens from a coma following a car crash in Berlin, to discover that his wife Elizabeth (Jones) doesn't recognise him, and that a man called, well, Dr Martin Harris (Quinn) appears to have taken on his identity. Soon there are assassins on his tail, and he picks up an unlikely ally in the shape of Kruger's Gina, along the way. Adding a European twist to the action movie genre, there's a little bit of everything in the mix, from Hitchcock and Film Noir, to the best of the Cold War thrillers.
DVD extras Delve further into the mystery with the ‘Unknown: What is known?' special feature, which offers up more insight into the plot and characters.
Just Go With It
Cast Jennifer Aniston, Adam Sandler, Brooklyn Decker, Nicole Kidman
Director Dennis Dugan
Reports had us believe Jen Aniston was so scared of appearing alongside Sports Illustrated cover girl, Brooklyn Decker, in a bikini in this flick that she embarked on a crazy diet and fitness routine to shape up. Well, if she did, it certainly paid off, as Jen is her usual smokin’ hot self in this tale of plastic surgeon, Danny Maccabee (Sandler),
who convinces his assistant Katherine (Aniston) to pretend to be his soon-to-be-divorced wife, in order to cover for a lie he told his younger girlfriend Palmer (Decker). Also keep an eye out for Nicole Kidman actually doing ‘funny’ in her cute cameo.
DVD extras Get a peek at the deleted scenes, as well as a blooper reel and ‘Jen and Adam’ featurette.
