If you want to see truly effective, creative use of 3-D, run to the nearest theater playing this movie. The folks at DreamWorks Animation know what they’re doing in this arena, and their films are designed with 3-D in mind from the very start; it isn’t an afterthought, and I for one can tell the difference. (Even Monsters vs. Aliens, which I didn’t care for, had terrific 3-D visuals.)

With the long-awaited release of The African Queen on DVD this week, film buffs can check another prominent title off their want lists. That’s the good news…but there are still a surprising number of movies from every decade of the 20th century that aren’t commercially available.

If ever a movie was worth waiting for on DVD, it’s The African Queen. Because the film’s ownership was split among a handful of companies, on both sides of the Atlantic, and because it required an expensive restoration, it’s taken much longer than it should have to reach the marketplace…but now it’s here, and it’s great.

Sometimes a film takes time to sink in. I didn’t dislike Greenberg while I was watching it—although its central character did get on my nerves a bit. But in the days that followed, I found myself thinking about the people in the story, and how fully developed they were. They seemed genuine, as tangible as the carefully-chosen Los Angeles locations in which the story unfolds. One can’t help but admire that quality.

The Runaways doesn’t stray from the path that most making-of-the-band movies follow, yet it remains compelling from start to finish. Whether you know the story of the ground-breaking 1970s all-girl band called The Runaways or not, the opportunity to watch Kristen Stewart as fiercely determined rock and roller Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning as unlikely singer-turned-sexpot Cherie Currie makes this film worthwhile.

Like millions of other kids, I idolized Davy Crockett and the man who played him, Fess Parker…so this is a sad day for me and other lifelong fans, even though I know he lived a good life for more than 85 years.
