THE YARDS
Hot stars Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter), Joaquin Phoenix (I'm Still Here) and Charlize Theron (Hancock) power this riveting crime thriller. Released from prison after taking the fall for a group of his friends, Leo Handler (Wahlberg) just wants to get his life back on track. But when he takes a job with his powerfully influential Uncle Frank (James Caan) and reconnects with his old friend Willie (Phoenix), Leo finds himself unwittingly drawn into a world of sabotage, high-stakes payoffs and even murder. Then, he discovers a secret that makes him the target of the city's most ruthless family—his own.

THE LOOKOUT
Acclaimed screenwriter Scott Frank (Minority Report) makes a mind-blowing directorial debut in The Lookout, a gritty, high-tension crime thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception), Jeff Daniels (Good Night, and Good Luck) and Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers). Chris ""Slapshot"" Pratt (Gordon-Levitt), whose once-bright future has been dimmed by a head injury, is a night janitor at a bank. Lonely and frustrated, Chris falls prey to a con mans seductive promise of romance and a better life, and agrees to help rob the bank where he works. Filled with heart-pounding action, edge-of-your-seat suspense and a twist youll never see coming, The Lookout will grip you and never let go...

Two great movies put on one blu-ray minus the special features like director's commentary....I'd stick with the full disc - James Grey commentary on YARDS is exemplary and should not be missed. This is a missed opportunity - they should've put two James Grey movies together on TWO DISCS - I think this is ok - but a little shoddy - but my grade on THE YARDS itself? B +
THE LOOKOUT: B
no extras - 2 on 1 disc - but a decent price.

Judge Clark Douglas, DVD Verdict -- "I'm a fan of double-features, themed movie nights, movie marathons, and so on. I've always taken joy in finding an intriguing batch or two or three films and watching them back-to-back. Unfortunately, there's generally little thought put into double-features released on DVD or Blu-ray. However, Echo Bridge's pairing of James Gray's The Yards and Scott Frank's The Lookout is an exception. James Gray's The Yards is an immensely respectable film in a variety of ways: it boasts sturdy, occasionally artful direction, solid performances from an impressive mix of younger (Mark Wahlberg, Joaquin Phoenix, Charlize Theron) and older actors (Faye Dunaway, James Caan, Ellen Burstyn), handsome cinematography from Harris Savides, an impressively nuanced Howard Shore score and a screenplay pitched squarely at thoughtful grown-ups. And yet, something about it leaves me a bit cold. Perhaps it's the film's overbearingly grim tone, which drapes the entire affair in an air of Greek tragedy (when certain characters meet their fate, it feels predestined rather than surprising). It's fascinating to watch The Lookout directly after The Yards, as the former's seemingly effortless ability to accomplish its goals makes the latter look laborious in comparison. The Yards works so hard to make an emotional impact, but doesn't quite get there. Meanwhile, The Lookout tells a similar story with vastly more humor, a shorter running time and a generally lighter tone yet somehow also manages to pack the emotional wallop The Yards was striving for. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character may initially inspire memories of Guy Pearce's turn in Memento, but Gordon-Levitt's performance is so persuasive and three-dimensional that Chris quickly turns into a unique cinematic figure.Read more ›

These two movie Blu Ray discs come without subtitles or captions, lesson learned, the movies were both great, but I did miss most of the dialogues and will never ever buy a blue Ray movie again, unless it comes as a single disc and has all the additional language and subtitle features, lesson learned.
