Circuit Round-Up, 08/21

* Last week, Michael Ward reviewed Soul Surfer, 30 Minutes or Less and The Help, while Joey Magidson shared his thoughts on Peep World, Another Earth, The Change-Up, and Fright Night. He also declared Bellflower the best film of the year so far.

* Joey showcased a decent variety of releases for his DVD Picks of the Week.
