New DVD Releases for 15 April 2008

Happy (Day Before) Tax Day (in the U.S.A.)!  What better way to spend your tax refund (I’m being optimistic for you all) than by buying a new DVD? Don’t tell the wife; just sneak out and do it.  Or, stay in, click on one of the great Amazon links incorporated so seamlessly into this post, and click away.  Use One Click shopping if you have Amazon Prime.  Go nuts!

  • Juno

This is really the release everyone is waiting for, isn’t it?  I think I’ll wait for the Apple TV rental.  Please note, though, that the two disc DVD edition seen above comes with a digital copy.  Pretty cool.

  • Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead

Never heard of it, but Sidney Lumet directs an all-star cast here including Ethan Hawke, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Alberty Finney, and Marisa Tomei.  Impressive.

  • In The Name of The Kind: A Dungeon Siege Tale

That’s a video game-based movie starring Jason Statham.  On the other hand, Uwe Boll directs it.  ::gulp::

  • Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem

Yes, they made a sequel.  Go fig.

  • American Dad, Season Three

I haven’t seen the show in a year, but I know I liked it early on.  FAMILY GUY is still far superior, though I haven’t watched more than the STAR WARS episode of that in a year, either. ::sigh::

  • Alien Nation: The Ultimate Movie Collection

I figure there have to be one or two fans of that series out there reading this.

Next week: I don’t know yet.  Tune in next Monday to find out!

  1. This week I am getting Aliens vs. Predator. I went to see it Christmas Day and enjoyed it. Not the greatest movie ever, but I was entertained enough to want to own it!

    Looks like the big release next week will be Cloverfiled. I also enjoyed that one, but am going to wait for it on Blu-ray.

  2. I think it is funny that the Ultimate Movie collection for Alien Nation does not include the first and best of the bunch! I enjoyed the show and the subsequent TV movies but the first is still the best.

  3. Juno is the best movie of last year — and Roger Ebert agrees with me. Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead blows — but not entirely, because Marisa Tomei is nude.

  4. Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead was probably my favorite movie of 2007 – the kind of raw, gritty drama they used to make in the 70s. Lumet still has it, and the performances were amazing all around. Hard to watch at times, but worth seeing.
