New DVD Releases for 19 Feb 2008

And what’s going on this week?

  • He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: Season One

I’ve seen the lines for toys based on He-Man at the San Diego Comic-Con. I have no doubts that this will sell decently.

  • American Gangster

Russel Crowe. Denzel Washington. Oscar bait. They didn’t bite on it too hard, though, did they?  (Ruby Dee got a supporting actress nom and I think has a good chance of winning it.  There’s also an Art Direction nomination in there, where it’s up against SWEENEY TODD and THERE WILL BE BLOOD, amongst others.)

  • Michael Clayton

Oscar Bait Part II, now with more George Clooney.

  • Chaos

Definitely NOT Oscar bait, but I have no idea what it is, aside from that it stars Jason Statham.

  • Margot at the Wedding

I’ve heard of this one, vaguely. Nicole Kidman headlines the cast.

Next week: The Smurfs invade DVD!!!
