New DVDs

Tuesday’s releases begin with “John Dies at the End” (does he?). Star ratings are by Seattle Times movie reviewers, freelancers or wire services. For full reviews, search the movie title at seattletimes.com. Release dates are subject to change.

3 stars“John Dies at the End” (R): Director Don Coscarelli’s loopy horror comedy crosses parallel universes and more in a quest to find the relationship between a powerful hallucinogenic and an apparent invasion of fluttering white creatures. Rob Mayes plays John, who “talks from the future to his friend Dave (Chase Williamson) via, among other things, a hot dog that functions like a telephone because, well ... because,” reviewer Tom Keogh says. “At some point, a viewer is encouraged to just let go and take the ride. The risk is worth it.”

2.5 stars“The Sweeney” (R): Based on a ’70s British TV police series, it’s got car chases, shootouts, beatings, killer crooks and Ray Winstone — as the tough-as-nails head of a London squad of street-level enforcers.
