Welcome back to a weekly feature here at Movies With Abe. I'm going to be providing a handy guide to a few choice movies currently playing in theatres as well as several films newly released on DVD. I’ll also aim to comment on those films I have not yet had the chance to see, and I invite you to add in your thoughts on any films I haven’t seen in the comments below. Understandably, some weeks will have considerably fewer releases to address than others.
Nothing exciting to report this week!
New to DVD
No (recommended): This Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Film from Chile provides an in-depth look at the advertising campaign for a crucial vote at the end of the 1980s in Chile’s history. This subtle film is unassuming and manages to enthrall its viewers by slowly drawing them in to the passion and purity of those involved in its cause.

The Avengers (recommended): This mega-spectacular has to be exciting simply because it amasses such a terrific collection of superheroes. Its action-centered moments are stellar, and the character interaction is excellent too. A must-see for any Marvel comics or superhero fan, and the sequels are going to be superb as well.
