New DVD Blu-Ray: ‘Project X,’ ‘The FP’

Moviefone’s New Release Pick of the Week
“The FP”

What’s It About? In a hyper-ridiculous society that bares a few similarities to our own, a mysterious eye-patch-wearing hero battles evil gang leaders in “Dance, Dance Revolution”-style combat where only one man walks away.
See It Because: Is it cheesy? Absolutely. Is it technically good? Not really. But an over-the-top midnight movie like this is perfect for a get-together with friends.

Moviefone’s Blu-ray Pick of the Week
“Evita,” “Newsies,” and “Sister Act 1” & “2” Anniversary Editions
What’s It About? They were crowd-pleasers then, and they’re crowd-pleasers now; four musical hits from the ’90s are already eligible for “Anniversary editions.”
See It Because: They’re entertaining as hell. (Also, did we mention you could win all four for free in our giveaway?)

New on DVD & Blu-ray
“And Everything is Going Fine” (Criterion Collection)
What’s It About? Steven Soderbergh’s documentary of Spalding Gray, the acclaimed playwright/performance artist who commited suicide in 2004, is a celebratory and bittersweet look into the artist’s psyche.
See It or Skip It: See it.

“Big Miracle”
What’s It About? This true story tale, of a small-town effort to rescue three whales trapped under Alaskan ice, features enough great character actors and better-than-you-expect writing to raise it above schmaltz.
See It or Skip It: See it.
(Also Available on Amazon Instant Video)

“Cat Run”
What’s It About? The director of “Into the Blue” and “Blue Crush” makes a crime caper starring the ridiculously sexy Paz Vega that is ridiculously shallow.

“Gray’s Anatomy” (Criterion Collection)
What’s It About? Along with “And Everything…,” Criterion has re-released Soderbergh’s collaboration with Gray: a filmed version of his one-man show dealing with his health problems and his comically neurotic pursuits for alternative medicine.
See It or Skip It: See it.

“Jeff, Who Lives At Home”
What’s It About? A great cast (Ed Helms, Jason Segel) is wasted on another quirky indie movie about old slackers and their views on life.
See It or Skip It: Skip it.
(Also Available on Redbox DVD & Blu-ray | Amazon Instant Video)

“Project X”
What’s It About? Making a teen sex party movie by framing it as a found-footage mockumentary, is the perfect way to amplify the R-rated crassness, logic be damned. But the fact that life has imitated art — and real kids have tried to ape the movie’s out-of-control party scenario — has turned this little comedy into a weird examination of modern teen id.
See It or Skip It: See it, for psychological insight.

“Seeking Justice”
What’s It About? Nic Cage. Action movie. We thought it was direct-to-video; turns out it wasn’t. Yikes.
See It or Skip It: Skip it.
(Also Available on Redbox)

What’s It About? It tanked at the box office, and it wasn’t as funny as Paul Rudd and director David Wain’s last team-up (“Role Models”), but it’s funny enough for a viewing.
See It or Skip It: See it.
