A little bit of everything on DVD this week!

Once again we don't have any masterpieces hitting home video this week, but there's more or less something for everyone, making it a week where everyone's PICK OF THE WEEK might be different. Mine is not going to be the most popular one, but it's the one I'm going to go with anyway. It's:
My Bloody Valentine 3D
This comes with a caveat though, since the film probably will not play as well on DVD. In theaters it was a fun time at the movies, cheesy in all the right ways. In another lifetime it would have been the perfect movie for a drive in. The 3D is gimmicky, but works for the most part. Check it out if you think it's up your alley.
-Also out this week worth looking for is Tom Cruise trying to kill Hitler in the somewhat underrated Valkyrie, a group of nerds trying to see Star Wars Episode 1 early in the cute Fanboys, the strange but somewhat satisfying sci-fi flick Outlander (Vikings vs Aliens essentially), and the first season of True Blood, a show on HBO I absolutely love that gives a new spin of vampire lore.
-Unfortunately, we also have Paul Blart: Mall Cop on DVD today. There's nothing really wrong with this flick, it's just so bland and inoffensive that it almost dissolves as you're watching it. You have better things to watch with your time.
-My Vintage pick this week is Game 6. Michael Keaton gives a wonderful lead performance as a writer fearing the review an infamous film critic (played by Robert Downey Jr.) will write for his new play while being a Boston fan in New York City in 1986 during the World Series between the Red Sox and the Mets. It all comes together brilliantly and is an underseen masterpiece worth looking for!
-What will you all be watching on DVD this week?


  1. True Blood it is

  2. Gonna be watching the first two Terminator films (part 3 is rubbish) in anticipation of Terminator Salvation. I am so geeked for the new film its insane. I can't remember being this excited for a movie in a while.

  4. Game 6 sounds worth a look...thanks!
