View from the Couch: 21 and higher February 28 2012

Here's this week's View from the Couch DVD-review column by Creative Loafing/Charlotte's own Matt Brunson, who reviews releases of 21, In Bruges (which Curt Holman reviewed for us) and more. Unfortunately, Matt didn't touch on the Criterion Collection's spiffed-up release of Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1932 classic, Vampyr. (Don't worry; I'm squirreling away ghoulish-movie DVD reviews for Halloween. Stay tuned.)

I actually found what appeared to be a full-length clip of the movie on YouTube, but in deference to Dreyer and Criterion, I'll just post this clip of the first four minutes of the movie. Oooh, scary!
