My local RB had WC2 on dvd but I am going to save that for October, but the suitable sub albeit not Horror, but plenty of blood is The Raid 2.
I am saving both WC's and Afflicted for October. Not because I think they are extra special but am a little concerned with how much decent, new content I might have and want to get some titles set.
The Raid was fun and Raid 2 is on my radar as well. In the Blood is showing up for this weekend. Gina Caruno kicks butt and would be fun to see her in a horror flic - and put up a fight against whatever spirit, slasher, animated doll...

I am not a Whedon fb and you can see alot of his style in Resurrection. His banter with no chills, does not fit the Alien universe well imo. I did like Avengers. I think folks get sick of it's success because of all the praise, and box office it received, when it is not the 2nd coming or anything. But that's the point. Avengers is just a competent, summer blockbuster and manages spectacle with decent characterization, writing and minimal face palms. Transformers franchise has too many face palms, poor characterization and bad, poorly concieved attempts at humor. It's not about "shutting your brain off it's a Bay movie". It's his style of trying to make it as low brow as possible and too many wtf's that take me out of the film. I'm no prude. Nobody
embraces bathroom humor, and action over substance more than me. But his crap, and MANY other "blockbusters", do not deliver on even a minimal level for story etc. Avengers did, and was rewarded - about as much as Bay movies were...
