(Click on the "DVD" icon for previous weeks!)

Hello.

This week, it's another slooooooow summer Tuesday with none of the big distributors figuring people are indoors enough to bother with brand new DVDs....at least that's my guess. Only 217 DVDs, 14 Blu-Rays, nothing terribly notable, and only a sick compulsion keeps me even bothering to put a list together. Well, to be fair, when the numbers are this low it's a heck of a lot easier to get excited about starting and finishing knowing that it will be HOURS less than usual.

So enough of me talking, let's get right to it!

EVERYTHING comes out Tuesday (8/12) except where noted!

The pickings were so slim that I pretty much went totally random in pulling a title to call my

PICK OF THE WEEK
Ninja Cheerleaders (The W at Amazon) (2008) That title certainly helped me, though. But I dunno, maybe those concepts should have remained separated - BUT AGAIN! George Takei AND Max Perlich are in it! So...there you go. Trailer at www.ninjacheerleaders.com

I can recommend "Smart People" as a pretty decent film. Thomas Haden Church is excellent in it, Dennis Quaid does Dennis Quaid things and that never can be too bad. Ellen Page plays another totally unrealistic teenage character, but she doesn't annoy me nearly as much as she did in Juno. And Sarah Jessica Parker actually comes close to acting.

I know this sounds kind of dismissive, but it really was a pretty good movie. Church's work alone is enough to justify a watch.

You know as much as I do on this one. For a while, there seemed to be people doing cheap direct to video movies using CMLL wrestlers in starting rolls - if you click thru Dos Caras' profile, there's someone selling a double feature of another Dos movie and Atlantis feature.

Atlantis' movie got some decent press, because (being Atlantis) it was about kids and how spending time with dolphins was helpful therapy for developmental disabled children. Much more common was a quick note in a lucha column about so and so wrestler having been busy the previous week filming a movie, and that's the last you hear about it. I presume that's what this is.

Laugh if you want, but I could take this to my son's 3rd grade class and all of the boys would love it as well as a fair percentage of the girls. It may be a South Georgia thing, but I doubt it. Kids that age are fascinated by big machinery, farm equipment, and stuff like that.

Not just in Georgia, kids love that stuff. My buddy Ben's son is 4 and has videos of dump trucks and heavy equip that he watches while getting ready to play. Then he assaults the outdoors with a variety of Tonka-type trucks in the yard and the sandbox for hours. Where my brother lives in Jersey, when the Fire Department rolls the big trucks in the Fourth of July parade, the kids go bananas.
