Ryan Reynolds naked!

We’d leave it at that, but we don’t want to short thrift the other week’s home entertainment highlights. Besides the insanely violent, snarky, Ryan Reynolds-in-the-flesh Deadpool movie, we have drag documentary Dressed As A Girl and a biopic about the legendary gay, silent movie director Sergei Eisenstein, Eisenstein In Guanajuato (above).

Scroll down for more details and trailers!

 

Deadpool

($39.99 Blu-ray, $29.98 DVD; 20th Century Fox)

Ryan Reynolds has been dying to play this X-Men antihero, a snarky gun-toting assassin known as “the merc with a mouth,” for at least a decade now. His first attempt to portray Deadpool, in the disastrously lame 2009 X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie, saw a character barely like the one from the comics, and he finally gets a chance to roast that failure in this balls-out, cartoonishly violent, ultra-meta funfest in which a wiseguy mercenary, Wade Wilson, is transformed into a badly scarred yet quick-healing mutant. Determined to track down the men who stole his life and love from him, Deadpool is eventually joined by a couple of X-Men… Did we mention Reynolds gets naked, too? A massive set of extras includes five featurettes, deleted and extended scenes, gag reel, commentaries, and more.

 

 

Dressed As A Girl

(VOD)

The producers of RuPaul‘s Drag Race, World of Wonder’s Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey, bring us a documentary about London’s underground drag scene. Following six incredible gender-benders over six years, Dressed As A Girl features some incredible performances, crazy ensembles, and a lively peek into a truly unique, rarely seen scene and set of folks, one of whom happens to be a biological girl!

 

 

Eisenstein In Guanajuato

($24.99 DVD; Strand)

Visionary UK director Peter Greenaway, whose The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover is a must-see for its Jean-Paul Gaultier costumes alone, returns with this biopic about groundbreaking gay Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein’s 1931 venture into Mexico. Completely in love with the sun drenched country, and far from his homeland’s rabid homophobia, the filmmaker finally finds himself… and loses his virginity to a studly Mexican guide. Fascinating, operatic stuff, with stunning art direction, sets and costumes. Extras include an interview with the lead actors.
