This week’s number one must-rent DVD is This Means War, the sexy, romantic action film about a woman who must choose between two gorgeous guys. Now, that’s a choice we’d all like to have, Reese!
No. 1 — This Means War
This Means War is the story of two guys, played by Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, who both fall in love with the same woman, Reese Witherspoon. Sounds like quite the conundrum. Well, it is. Especially since these two guys are secret agents used to doing undercover work. When they go head-to-head for this beautiful blonde’s heart, things definitely get interesting.
Rotten Tomatoes: 25% splat

No. 2 — The Secret World of Arrietty
The adorable tale of “borrowers” who are the tiny people living in the walls of your house comes to life with brilliant animation by the makers of Ponyo. The Secret World of Arrietty is bold, surprisingly touching and stars Carol Burnett.

Hold onto your mate while watching this creepy screen adaptation of the popular novella of the same name. Daniel Radcliffe departs from his Harry Potter days to helm this horror film sent in a 19th century village. Muhahaha.
