Here we go again. But tell me this — what DVDs have you bought lately? The most recent one I laid out the cash for was MI-5 Season Four, which I’m watching right now. That same day, I bought the Barenaked Ladies’ first concert movie DVD. I’ve seen about 2/3rd of it and am enjoying it.
Lotsa notable releases this week:
- Perfect Strangers: The Complete First and Second Season
The Release of the Week. There is no competition. Great series.
- The Brave One
This is the Jodie Foster With A Gun movie from last fall. I remember the trailers for it. Did anyone here see it?
- Across the Universe
This is the musical with all the Beatles songs in it.
- The Legend of Butch and Sundance
Because Hollywood likes to stomp on its own grave. That might not be fair. It’s a TV movie, and I’m not terribly sure it’s even a direct prequel to the classic 70s movie with Redford and Newman. Go watch that one, instead. I’m sure it’s ten thousand times better.
- The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford
It’s a Brad Pitt movie. And a western. Cool!
- The Aristocats: Special Edition
A mostly forgettable 80s animated feature from Disney, though it included the likes of Thurl Ravenscroft (The Grinch) and Scatman Crothers (Hong Kong Fooey).
- You’ve Got Mail: Deluxe Edition
Ah, journey back to a simpler time when people still thought AOL was useful.
