Christmas always means few companies are willing to risk their new releases getting buried beneath the holiday hoopla, so we only have 113 listings this week - that's 95 DVDs, 18 Blu-rays and one UMD. Most of the truly big releases are delayed until after Christmas, so you can think of them as "early" releases for 12/30...but they're still covered here.

No pick of the week or movies for Kim this week - merry Christmas!

None of them are Tuesday releases, but we'll go ahead and start with the

BIG MOVIES OF THE WEEK

Eagle Eye (The W at Amazon) (USA/Germany, 2008) Shia LeBeouf, Michelle Monaghan, Roasio Dawson, Michael Chiklis, Ethan Embry, Billy Bob Thornton - www.eagleeyemovie.com (12/27)
Eagle Eye (Two-Disc Special Edition) No idea what's special about the second disc, unfortunately (12/27)
Eagle Eye (Spanish Dubbed Edition) "Control Total" (12/27)
Eagle Eye [Blu-ray] (12/27)

Ghost Town (2008) Ricky Gervais sees dead people - WITH HILARIOUS RESULTS. Greg Kinnear, Ta Leoni (12/27)
Ghost Town [Blu-ray] (12/27)

The Duchess (UK/Italy/France, 2008) Keira Knightley, Ralph Fiennes, Charlotte Rampling, Dominic Cooper, Hayley Atwell - www.theduchessmovie.com (12/27)
The Duchess [Blu-ray] Not to be confused with The Bishop (youtube.com) (12/27)

Resident Evil: Degeneration [Blu-ray] (12/27)
Resident Evil: Degeneration [UMD for PSP] (12/27)

Savage Grace (Spain/USA/France, 2007) Julianne Moore, Stephen Dillane, Eddie Redmayne - more info at IFC (ifcfilms.com)

Okay, I lied. ONE release listed as coming out Tuesday. Curses to you, IFC, for making a liar out of me!

In other news, we have a very close race for the worst, most useless direct-to-video sequel of the week:
Pulse 3 (direct to DVD, 2008) As the IMDb reviewer so eloquently states: "Pulse 3 is better than Pulse 2, but that's not saying much (ha ha!)." But it DOES come with a "behind the scenes featurette!!!!!"

Beethoven's Big Break (direct to DVD, 2008) I know...I didn't know they were still making sequels of this crappy movie, either - this is the sixth one, you wanna bet they go for nine so they can have a "Beethoven's Ninth?" AHahahahahahaha that title does everything but sell itself. I bet Charles Grodin RUES THE DAY he stepped off THIS money train (12/26)
Beethoven's Dog-Gone Best Movie Pack Only if you fervently believe that all six films are "best" (12/26)

Didn't Ghost World come out in September? And it's on DVD already?

If there's a Gervais commentary (preferably with Karl), that's a rental, maybe even purchase.

Ghost Town is the Gervais movie where he's a dentist who died a few mins and sees dead people.

Ghost World came out in 2001 and stars Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson and is based on a comic book.

It's probably one of those cases where the second disc is nothing but a digital copy of the movie.

No digital copies mentioned, crazy enough - it looks like a lot of bonuses and extras, including the gag reel. Click Here (hometheaterforum.com)

All the single disc version has are three short deleted scenes and an also short "making of" dealing with the many location shoots. (There's a longer "making of" on disc 2.)
