  • Mila Kunis and Jason Segel in Forgetting Sarah Marshall

This week CL Charlotte's Matt Brunson discusses the DVD releases of Cool Hand Luke, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Leatherheads and more.

COOL HAND LUKE (1967). In a career filled with iconic anti-heroes – including what I deem the "4-H Club" from the 1960s (Hud, Harper, Hombre and The Hustler) – Lucas Jackson just might be the most popular of all the societal misfits played by Paul Newman. After drunkenly destroying parking meters in a small Southern town, Newman's wisecracking loner is shipped off to a prison whose inmates break their backs working on a chain gang. Read the rest here.
