This is not a week to inspire much drive to get out the door to hit Best Buy. But I’m committed to you people, anyway.
Or maybe I should just be committed…
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Giftset (2-disc set) (unrated) (widescreen) (2004) Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (unrated) (widescreen) (2004)
It took in $85 million when nobody was looking, though didn’t make #1. It did become the #2 and #3 movie in its first couple of weeks at the beginning of July — a tough time for anything other than a pre-planned Summer blockbuster to flourish.
Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries (2003)
Apollo is female this time, right? Doesn’t that just screw with your mind?!?
Cyber Bandits (1995)
With a title like that, you know it has to suck. IMDB mostly agrees.
Did I mention that it stars Adam Ant and Robert Hays? Woe be to this film.
The Fantastic Films of Ray Harryhausen: Legendary Monsters (5-disc set)
He has his fans.
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (2004)
I should see the first one first, I think. but it looks spiffy. In a magnificent fit of scheduling, though, there’s a special edition of the first movie due out on DVD in two weeks. BRILLIANT! Shouldn’t they learn to have such a thing come out on the same week as the sequel? Marketing idiots.
Open Water (2004)
Shark season! I really want to see this one. Stick a couple of people alone in the ocean. Watch their fright as sharks circle for an hour. Fun fun fun.
Resident Evil: Apocalypse: Special Edition (2-disc set) (2004)
This is your special effects extravaganza movie for the week.
Tour of Duty: Season Two (4-disc set)
It seems this is a TV series set in WWII. I’ve never heard of it before. What channel is it on? Cable, I presume?
Wimbledon (widescreen) (2004)
In the middle of all this ugliness, there’s always Kirsten Dunst.
Next week: I’m still not excited.
Update: Thanks to Jason for pointing this out in the comments section: Garden State, Zach Braff’s movie co-starring Natalie Portman, is also out this week. OK, so it’s looking like a slightly better week now than it was a couple hours ago. I’m still locking myself in this afternoon to watch LORD OF THE RINGS: RETURN OF THE KING today, though.
