THE LIST

DVDS

"Hannibal Rising" (available in R and unrated versions) is a prequel about how one of the most intriguing villains of pop culture, Hannibal Lecter of "The Silence of the Lambs" fame, came to be. Novelist and screenwriter Thomas Harris pieces together a story, and young French actor Gaspard Ulliel takes on the role of Lecter. Unfortunately, the story is no "Lambs," and Ulliel’s Lecter is a one-dimensional killer without any of the complexities embodied in Anthony Hopkins’ version.

Also available today: "Katharine Hepburn 100th Anniversary Collection" (Unrated); "Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds" (Unrated); "Visions of Scotland" (Unrated); "Kill House" (R); "Warlords" (Unrated); "Free Zone" (Unrated); "My Brother" (PG-13); "The Closer: The Complete Second Season" (Unrated); and "F-Troop: The Complete Second Season" (Unrated).

 

CDS

R. Kelly, "Double Up"

Windows will be fogged and bed springs will be tested, for R&B’s most notorious Lothario is back with another helping of oversexed come-ons and blush-worthy hot talk.

R. Kelly has earned his share of tawdry tabloid headlines in recent years, but there’s certainly no controversy when it comes to his sterling track record of cranking out sultry slow jams and hip-swiveling new jack soul.

Prepare your libido for war.

Also in stores: Jason Aldean, "Relentless"; Herb Alpert, "Rise"; Perry Farrell’s Satellite Party, "Ultra Payloaded"; Gary Moore, "Close As You Get"; and Richard Thompson, "Sweet Warrior."
