Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008) I see they have wisely attempted to sell it as "from the producers of SAW" rather than "Paris Hilton SINGS!" Believe it or else, this was out in November but never made it into more than 11 theatres - coincidentally, eleven, I believe, was the number of talk shows Hilton went on to attempt to promote this thing

Oh yeah! Time to bump up my SAW collection with #5 and maybe Max Payne. My father loves the games but was bummed out by the movie. I have been told I am a rather sick puppy with my likey of the SAW flicks. Who else don't wanna see one of the New Kids on the Block get maimed?

I can't speak to the DVD, but the cd is actually very good, assuming you like that style. In addition, the 116 Clique's theology is surprisingly good on the album and in their other work associated with this project. Any artist who name drops John MacArthur and James Boice in their discussion of Romans, as Shai Linne does, gets a big thumbs up from me.

NEWLY ADDED FOR 1/20:
A Voice From Eternity (The W at Amazon) Louix Dor Dempriey

NOW SHOWING UNAVAILABLE:
Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner [Import] [Blu-ray]
Animals & Beyond
Step Party 2: Let's Step It Up Workout with Katina Hunter
Kick That Habit
The End of America
13 Letters with Book(s) and DVD
Revving @ 4500 Rpm's & Justified: Unauthorized
Kill Buljo
The Ultimate Fancy RATS

STILL INEXPLICABLY SHOWING UNAVAILABLE:
Saw V (Unrated Director's Cut)
Saw V (Unrated Collector's Edition)

I hope you didn't have your heart set on ordering "Saw V" from Amazon. I have no idea why you can't get them there. Clearly from all the TV ads I've had to endure it IS still coming out Tuesday...and you can still get the Blu-Ray or full screen versions.

Here's the Top 24. Notice that "Saw V" is STILL in there even though Amazon says it isn't available. It's one of those CONUNDRUMS - like in the SAW movies!

1 1 Moonlight - The Complete Series
3 2 Repo! The Genetic Opera
2 3 King Kong [Blu-ray]
4 4 Emergency!: Season Five
5 5 The Rockford Files: Season Six
9 6 MGM: When the Lion Roars
- 7 Ghost (Special Collector's Edition)
6 8 Max Payne [Blu-ray]
7 9 Saw V [Blu-ray]
- 10 The Powerpuff Girls: The Complete Series - 10th Anniversary Collection
13 11 Spain... On The Road Again
8 12 The Express
10 13 City of Ember
-- 14 At the Coliseum
12 15 Max Payne
14 16 Saw V (Unrated Director's Cut) (unavailable?)
16 17 MI-5, Vol. 6
21 18 My Three Sons - Season One, Vol. 2
15 19 Repo! The Genetic Opera [Blu-ray]
19 20 Jonathan Creek: Season Three
17 21 The Notebook (Limited Edition Gift Set) [Blu-ray]
18 22 Igor
24 23 Waking the Dead: The Complete Season Three
22 24 Center Stage: Turn It Up

Dropping out are Magnificent Obsession - Criterion Collection, the "discontinued" Saw V (Unrated Collector's Edition) and Henry Poole Is Here [Blu-ray].

The Powerpuff Girls set showing up from nowhere over the course of a week means the Cartoon Network ad campaign must have worked. So too must the push for Repo! as "from the producers of SAW" in the "Saw V" ads, since it's now up to #2 - I wonder how many of those people actually know what that movie IS - or how awful it is. My guess is a lot of folks are getting hoodwinked and in two to three weeks you'll be seeing a lot of sub-$5 copies available from the usual Amazon resellers. Not that it matters, because you should not pay ANY price for this movie. I cannot stress that enough.

Let's all fear for the country even further as we examine the early top 24 for NEXT Tuesday...

1 Fireproof
2 The Bourne Trilogy (The Bourne Identity | The Bourne Supremacy | The Bourne Ultimatum) [Blu-ray]
3 Vicky Cristina Barcelona
4 Warner Bros. Romance Classics Collection (Palm Springs Weekend / Parrish / Rome Adventure / Susan Slade)
5 Cheers - The Final Season
6 The Invaders - The Second Season
7 Lakeview Terrace
8 Pride and Glory
9 Pride and Glory (+ Digital Copy) [Blu-ray]
10 Far from the Madding Crowd
11 Vicky Cristina Barcelona [Blu-ray]
12 Goodbye, Mr. Chips
13 Hulk Vs. [Blu-ray]
14 RocknRolla (Single-Disc Edition)
15 Hulk Vs. (Two-Disc Special Edition) (Widescreen)
16 Amazon.com-Exclusive Faith-Based 3pk Bundle (Facing the Giants, Fireproof, Flywheel)
17 Waterloo Bridge
18 Groundhog Day [Blu-ray]
19 The Yellow Rolls Royce
20 Cannery Row
21 Mary Poppins (45th Anniversary Special Edition)
22 RocknRolla (+ Digital Copy) [Blu-ray]
23 The Love Boat - Season Two - Vol. 1
24 Zodiac [Blu-ray]

...and here's this week's look at #1s in our deeper futures...

* 2/3: Yentl (Two-Disc Directors Cut)
2/10: Nights in Rodanthe
2/17: High School Musical 3: Senior Year
2/24: The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice

I like that in this list the #13 movie for next week is listed as "Hulk vs. Blu-Ray"

I assume Hulk bought a lot of HD-DVD movies and is still not happy about the demise of the format?

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"Mangini might not have had balls, but he DID have soft, supple breasts." (SEADAWG)


As I understand it, the whole push behind Repo! originally was to spin it as a Rocky Horror Picture Show-style cult classic. So if that's what they expected, that's probably how the studio pushed the movie: limited theatrical release, make assloads of money on DVD. Still doesn't explain the premiere in the Planet Hollywood casino (on the floor, no less), although I would've loved to see the reaction from mindless slot players a few days earlier, when they premiered Saw V the same way...

Another "Family Guy" special brand of episode - in other words, a joyless thud. Absolutely no funny was brought. Even "Iraq Lobster" felt like a retread of the LAST time Peter sang "Rock Lobster."
