Jennifer Garner is in an interesting point in her career. On the same day this week, she has two films being released on video after short-lived theatrical releases. And the ideas behind both of the movies are, umm, well a little odd. Which in itself is not necessarily a bad thing, there have been many off-beat movies that are fascinating.

Apparently there is a thriving world of artists creating exquisitely detailed statues completely from huge blocks of dairy spread.
