It's time to watch Darwin evolve from man to angel. Paul Bettany stars as the archangel Michael, who feels bad for the humans when God decides that it's time for that plague known as man to be wiped out. So, Michael cuts off his wings and joins the fray, trying to save the usual savior-of-man baby. In his review, Peter Hall wrote: "There is a want for ideas, for concepts, for cool 'oh, the audience will love this' moments, but there's no mind behind the typewriter to motivate it nor is there talent behind the camera to bring it to life." Skip it on DVD or Blu-ray.

Edge of Darkness
Mel Gibson's first starring role since The Singing Detective and his trouble with the law. Adapting his own '80s miniseries into a feature film, Martin Campbell throws Gibson back into the fray as a detective on the hunt for clues into his daughter's death. Hall noted in his review: "It's a star vehicle that makes clear he's still a commanding presence, able to summon up frightening emotions from the depth of his soul. ... He's always seemed like an outsized personality, but here he's closer to an average man fighting against giants, David versus Goliath." Rent it on DVD or Blu-ray.

The world has been overrun with vampires. But rather than an apocalypse, it's business as usual with one big twist -- almost everyone in regular society are vamps, except those humans on the run. The red stuff is running out and a vamp hematologist (Ethan Hawke) might be the key to everything -- not with a method for farming more blood, but to save the human race. William Goss wrote in his review: "it's a smarter and more refreshing take on the vampire genre than most of late, and a solid action flick in its own right." Definitely Buy it on DVD or Blu-ray.
