New releases, 26 August 2003

DVD Journal has the complete release schedule for today. I’ll just be concentrating on the few that I have something snark to say about. =)

Chasing Papi (2003)

Chased him right to the rental shelves. Bombed, despite Jaci Valesquez, who has a great singing voice. Can’t vouch for her acting, though.

Cher: The Farewell Tour (2003)

We only wish she’d say farewell already. She’s like Wynonna Judd. She’s said good-bye so many times that nobody believes her. This good-bye just had a bigger budget.

From Justin to Kelly (2003)

Speaking of being chased to the rental shelves… They’d have to sell millions of copies of this bad boy to make up for the embarrassing display on movie theaters. If only they’d package it at a discount rate with CROSSROADS and GLITTER, I might pick it up for a weekend’s worth of bad movies.

John Denver and the Muppets: Rocky Mountain Holiday

John Denver and The Muppets go together like peanut butter and jelly. Like a horse and carriage. Like Bonnie and Clyde.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (widescreen) (2-disc set) (2002)

If you absolutely can’t wait, here it is. If you buy the pan-and-scan of this movie, though, you’re missing out twice over. The extended (extra half hour) cut of the movie is due out in theaters in October or November. I’ll wait for that, thanks. Plus, it’ll have a DTS soundtrack.

MTV Power Yoga
It’s bad enough that they don’t show videos anymore, but they have an exercise program now, too? Who knew?

The Simpsons: Season Three (4-disc set) (1989)

Prime Simpsons material here, folks. Third and fourth seasons are golden.

Stitch! The Movie

Unnecessary Disney direct-to-video movies continue to be made because they sell. So who’s to blame for this movie? You all are for buying them. Shame on you. ;-)

    You know…for the purists out there, buying this version of LOTR The Two Towers is the only chance you’ll have to own the theatrical version of the flick.

    Last year I picked this one up used at Blockbuster in mid September for ten bucks, it was a great deal, and I really enjoyed the extra features that were on the two disc set (which are different from the features on the 4 disc uuber set).

    Mind you, now that Blockbuster has their dumb “Fullscreen only” policy, I’ll probably wait for the 4 disc set.
