NEW YORK – "Saved!" "Fahrenheit 9/11," "The Shawshank Redemption" and "Aladdin" are new on DVD in today's Foxlight.
Christian comedies aren't exactly a section at Blockbuster -- but the Mandy Moore film "Saved!" (search) is certainly funny and deserves a place in your collection. One critic says it should be called "Mean Christian Girls." Jena Malone and Macaulay Culkin are both great too.
Michael Moore said "Fahrenheit 9/11" (search) would be out in time to change the election. Uh-huh. I call it "Fahrenheit 411" because Moore needs some new information, but I admire a few things in the film, and obviously audiences went to see it.
One of my favorite all-time movies gets an anniversary re-release. It's "The Shawshank Redemption," (search) and even though they air it every day on TBS, I'll still pay real money for a copy.
Finally, the Disney gave Robin Williams a Picasso for making this film. It's "Aladdin," (search) and it still holds up 12 years later. By the way, before they gave him the painting, they talked Williams into doing the film by taking one of his old comedy records and having a pencil sketch version of Aladdin do Robin's act. He loved it and the rest is animated history.
