It’s a week of cinematic re-teaming!

Ryan Gosling and his Drive writer/director travel to Thailand for crime, fighting and vengeance in Only God Forgives, while Insidious director/writer James Wan places that film’s Patrick Wilson into another horrifying, haunting situation with The Conjuring. Finally, Wedding Crashers goofballs Vince Vaughan and Owen Wilson crash the youthful world of Google in The Internship.

 

Only God Forgives

($34.99 Blu-ray, $29.98 DVD; Anchor Bay)

Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn and star Ryan Gosling reunite for another stylish, atmospheric, electronic music-filled, sometimes ultra-violent drama set in Thailand. Gosling plays an on-the-lam drug dealer running a Bangkok boxing club whose mother, a criminal figurehead, tasks him with acts of bloody vengeance. No, it doesn’t go so well. Extras include a commentary, behind the scenes, interviews, and “The Music of Only God Forgives with Cliff Martinez.”

 

The Internship

($39.99 Blu-ray, $26.96 DVD; 20th Century Fox)

In this Wedding Crashers re-teaming of Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughan, the two stars play recently unemployed watch salesmen who attempt to get hired by Google via an internship competition. Barely even capable of operating computers and competing with code-literate kids half their age, hijinks ensue… and a requirement of more suspension of disbelief than anyone has a right to ask of an audience. The Google plugging is way OTT, too. The unrated edition’s extras include deleted scenes, a commentary, and featurette.

The Conjuring

($35.99 Blu-ray, $28.98 DVD; Warner Brothers)

Saw and Insidious director James Wan bases his latest horror yarn (and likely franchise) on a 1971 haunting investigated by real-life paranormal experts Ed and Lorraine Warren (who rose to fame thanks to their investigation of the Amityville house). This one’s got plenty of jolts, tension, and scares as a family is terrorized and the Warrens bite off a bit more than they can swallow. Extras entail a trio of brief featurettes.

      I will buy ONLY GOD FORGIVES and LEVIATHAN, and run it as a double-bill called VISUALS THAT WILL MAKE YOU THROW UP.

      You’re invited.
