MRQE Pick: City Island
MRQE Metric: 67

This indie gem went largely unnoticed when it opened in limited release in March, and garnered a bit of buzz following its premiere in the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival. Set in the Bronx neighborhood of the same name, City Island focuses on the Rizzo family and their web of lies that soon gets the best of them. When father Vince (Andy Garcia), learns that his illegitimate child, Tony (Steven Strait) is being held at the same prison where he's a guard, he employs Tony as his help at home. Just as the Rizzos learn about the crazy dysfunctions they're hiding from each other, so too does Tony learn his real truth.

Survival of the Dead
MRQE Metric: 52

Not exactly George A. Romero's best effort, Survival of the Dead brings back the appearance of a group of National Guardsmen who briefly appeared in Diary of the Dead. The guardsmen help battle more zombies, of course, as an epidemic spreads across the coast of North America effecting the local residents who hope to find a cure for their un-dead relatives.

The Back-Up Plan
MRQE Metric: 33

A number of pregnancy comedies hit theaters earlier this year, and this J-Lo effort was caught in the middle. The same day Zoe (Jennifer Lopez) decided to undergo artificial insemination, she meets Stan (Alex O'Loughlin). While they don't hit it off at first, fate continues to throw them back together until they decided to go on a date. When things go well, Zoe is left with the choice of having to tell Stan that she's pregnant, potentially running what could be a great relationship.

LOST Season 6 & Complete Collection
MRQE Metric: 86

Back in 2004 a plane crashed on what appeared to be a deserted island in the South Pacific. As we learned more about the past of the survivors, so too did we delve into the strange enigmas, and mysterious inhabitants living on the island. J.J. Abrams' television phenomenon, LOST, left viewers at the edge of their seats for six seasons. The final season, which completed this year, as well as the complete collection, is now available with tons of extras, including an epilogue that hopes to answer some of those remaining burning questions.

  1. Louis vuitton sent their fall/winter 2012/2013 collection down the Milan Fashion Week runway today and it featured a much darker, more gothic and vampire-like color palette than what was shown by the iconic design house for fall 2011. One year 
    ago louis vuitton Handbags showed bright colors and blocked them together, helping to explode the current color blocking trend. For fall 2012, Gucci moved away from the trend they started and let black rule the runway.
