New DVD Releases for 29 Jan 2008

For a change of pace, let’s do this on Monday instead of Tuesday this week.

It’s a pretty darn good week, with some exciting releases.

  • Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Season 5

I know some of you will be looking forward to this one.

  • Curb Your Enthusiasm, Season 6

I’ve only seen Season One, but it’s a darn hilarious show.

  • The Invasion

Remember this one? Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig? Yeah, most people don’t. (Also available in both HD-DVD and Blu Ray.)

  • Daddy Day Camp

They only wish they could forget about this movie, though it does make for a funny punchline.

  • Lake Placid 2

Unnecessary Sequel of the Week! If Betty White isn’t in it, does anyone care?

  • Damages, Season One

FX must really like it, despite the low ratings it got last summer. They’ve renewed it already for a couple more seasons. This is the legal show starring Glenn Close and Ted Danson. Really wanted to see it, but didn’t have the time. (It’s also available in Blu Ray.)

I am looking forward to making the time for the final season of THE SHIELD in a couple of months, though. THAT is the best show on television that never gets the rewards it deserves.

  • The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters

This is the documentary tracking the controvery over who holds the World Record for best Donkey Kong score of all time. If you haven’t read about this one yet, go Google for it. I think WIRED had a pretty good article on it, and I think I linked to it on this blog before. Call me a geek, but this might just be the Release of the Week.

  1. The King of Kong is at the top of the my Netflix queue and I hope to get it this week when I send in my 2 discs today. Curb should also be added to my list as well.

  2. Cool I was unawares about the King Of Kong DVD. Damages started over here a couple of weeks ago and I have to say that I am enjoying it. Glenn Close is putting in really great performances.

    Also thank God they got The Shield wrapped up, Vic Mackey saves your summer television. Yeah, hopefully it will get a ton of Emmy nods especially since it will be the last series.

  3. Paul – I hope you’re right about THE SHIELD, but the Emmys are such a meaningless institution at this point, that I’m not terribly sure they would get their heads unimplanted from their arse long enough to consider the show. Sad, but true.

  4. I would definitely check out Damages. I thought it was the best show of the last season (though I don’t watch The Shield). It’s very complex and has a new turn every episode. However, some of the episodes are a bit slow. It took me a while to get into it but I think the last half of the season was top notch legal thriller. Makes Grisham novels look very tame (not like that’s too hard though).
