New DVD Releases for 24 June 2008

There’s only one serious contender for Release of the Week:

  • In Bruges

An action flic set in a town in Belgium.  Doesn’t get much better than that.  I may have to go abuse some Amazon credit on this one.

For completists, you can also buy the Charlie Rose episode in which they talked about the movie, between Super Tuesday and Alice Waters.

  • Persepolis

For serious comic fans, on the other hand, this is the only Release of the Week possibility, animated from the best-selling and critically-acclaimed comic.

  • 10,000 BC

I’ve seen more of the movie in the DVD commercials than I ever did the theatrical trailers.  They don’t impress me any more.

  • Futurama: Beast with a Billion Backs

This is the new direct-to-DVD production.  I get the feeling that this will be the best-seller amongst this blog’s audience.

  • The Spiderwick Chronicles

Seemed to be popular with the kiddies.

    I actually saw 10,000 BC ion the theaters and really enjoyed it. I know it wasn’t the best reviewed movie, but I was entertained. So much that I ended up buying it on Blu-ray this week. I would recommend it for at least a rental.

    What a shame that the Futurama producers are using the direct-to-DVD format to make the content more bawdy. I’m having a hard time explaining to the kids why they can’t see this one.
