Another week, more DVDs. . . Some interesting ones, too, as we close in on the holiday season.
- Sleeping Beauty: 50th Anniversary
I honestly don’t have much love for these classics of Disney animation. I can appreciate the craft that went into them, but the stories tend to bore me, from what I remember of them. Nevertheless, the remastering process they did with this movie is very very impressive, and I’m half tempted to buy this (you know, for my daughter in the years to come) just to check out the before and after stuff in the bonus materials section.
- The Happening
For those who forgot, this is the latest bomb by M. Knight Shyamalan. There’s a director who needs to reinvent himself soon, badly. The box shown in the Best Buy ad this week is subtitled “L’Evenement.” I don’t remember seeing that title in the trailers.
Adam Sandler’s career continues on well past its prime. When will we get an “Opera Man” movie?
- The Smurfs: Season 1, Volume 2
What self-respecting 30-something doesn’t have fond memories of Saturday mornings with the little blue creatures?
- The Simpsons: Season 11
When the first season came out on DVD, the twice-a-year schedule seemed like it would take forever to get to later seasons. Wow, time flies.
