Love and Other Drugs:  Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal star in this clothing optional romantic dramedy.  The film revolves around Jamie (Gyllenhaal) a pharmaceutical rep who falls for Maggie (Hathaway), a Parkinson's patient who is not looking for love or a serious relationship.  The ending is extremely cliche, but overall the film is sweet and funny.  The DVD includes deleted scenes and featurettes with Gyllenhaal and Hathaway.

Burlesque: Cher stars as a veteran Burlesque performer who reluctantly hires new singer/dancer Ali, who turns out to be a huge star!  The film has great performances, but overall is totally corny and cliched.  If you're looking for a purely entertaining escape, this is a good one to see.  The DVD features include an alternate beginning, alternate musical scenes, and a blooper reel.

127 Hours: Best actor nominee James Franco stars in this riveting true story of hiker Aron Ralston, who gets trapped under a boulder during a hiking trip in Utah.  He doesn't tell anyone where he is going, so he spends 5 days trapped before he cuts off his own arm in order to free himself.  Franco's performance is perfect and there is a pretty gruesome amputation scene if you can get through it. DVD features include deleted scenes and a featurette with director Danny Boyle.

Faster: An ex-con (Dwayne Johnson) sets out to avenge his brother's death after they are tricked during a heist.  During his journey, he is followed by a cop and hit man.  He goes through many obstacles to find the people who killed his brother.  If you like Johnson and action/adventure movies, this one's for you.
