An Offer on DVD This Week That You Can't Refuse!

Hi all, and shockingly enough my PICK OF THE WEEK is related to The Godfather, as if the title of this article wasn't a dead giveaway. It's:
The Godfather: The Coppola Restoration
Simply put, if you love movies and don't own this trilogy on DVD, it's time to correct that. Enough said.
-Also out this week worth a positive mention is the George Clooney directed football film Leatherheads, which is unambitious but a lot of fun, the Simon Pegg running comedy Run Fatboy Run, which was seemingly thrashed by everyone except me...sue me, I dug it....give it a chance and you might too, as well as The Foot Fist Way, which launched Danny McBride, and Sex and the City, which I had no interest in but works well for fans of the show.
-We also have Pathology out on DVD, which tried to put a new spin on the serial killer but didn't succeed much with it, and Deception, which has a fitting title considering they had to somehow trick Hugh Jackman to be in this.
-My vintage pick this week is a downer of a film, but a powerhouse nonetheless. It's In The Bedroom, and it contains some of the best acting you'll see in a film. If it doesn't completely depress you, you'll love it.
-What are you guys watching this week?


  1. In the Bedroom is excellent, great performances all around. this week i'm planning on rewatching Dazed and Confused and Blue Velvet, both one of my all time favorites and i'm picking up the Russian Dolls which i haven't seen yet which is a sequel to another one of my favorite films, the Spanish Apartment.

  2. Dazed and Confused is one of my 10 favorite films of all time

  3. In the Bedrooom is pretty much Tom Wilkinson's finest hour.

    The Godfather: The Coppola Restoration is totally worth getting even if you already own the first release of the films, if for nothing else, the video and audio quality is incredible.
