This week's 271 titles break out to 225 DVDs, 42 Blu-rays and four "digital" releases. As usual, you can click on icons respectively representing links to a movie's IMDb listing, a TV season's tv.com listing, a film's website, The W discussion or John Orquiola's review.

Cerebus Scrapple Since: 17.11.02 Since last post: 25 days Last activity: 21 days # 2 Posted on 10.3.12 1155.22 | Instant Rating: 0.94 If I were to buy ANYTHING this week, it would be the long, anxiously awaited, American release of Olaf Ittenbach's The Burning Moon. I have this on a very worn and used VHS tape. It's picture is grainy and faded from it's being, I'll guess, a 5th or 6th generation dub. It's got terrible subtitles that isn't timed to match what the actors are saying correctly. the sound is also low on the tape, to where you have to turn your television up all the way to actually hear the sound. When I've watched this film, it's like I have to work at it to enjoy it. Having said that, putting in all that extra effort just to watch a German film is very, very well worth it. This classic gore masterpiece is yet another 'Holy Grail' of the DVD age. Seeing THIS film released on DVD in ANY quality, is a Godsend. Seeing it come out come out with a clear, crisp picture, proper subtitles, AND uncut... well, to a gorehound like myself, that's like having Olivia Wilde offering me anal and saying she's a virgin. I'm saying this is something I NEVER thought would EVER see the light of day. If you are so inclined to purchase anything this month... buy this. Forget it Josh... it's Cerebustown.

Torchslasher Knackwurst Since: 17.1.02 From: New F'n Jersey Since last post: 21 days Last activity: 15 hours # 5 Posted on 12.3.12 1844.01 | Instant Rating: 5.65 I love that they expect you to buy the American Pie series NOW, with the fourth (!) movie coming out in April. This will of course render your purchase null and void when they have the American Pie 4 pack by the fall. Still, I do love the series, so I might bite on this when all four are available. Of the new movies, I want to see Descendents, Tintin, and especially Young Adult. And next week is the Muppets! "Put on your helmets, we'll be reaching speeds of 3!"

theremin Head cheese Since: 31.1.12 Since last post: 99 days Last activity: 15 days # 6 Posted on 12.3.12 2021.01 | Instant Rating: 6.68 I saw Tintin, Descendants, Melancholia and Young Adult. None were really up to par with people's previous work (Young Adult wasn't anywhere near as good as Juno or Thank You for Smoking, but might be somewhere close to Up In The Air - Descendents was half the movie that Sideways was, etc.) Tin Tin had a couple of nice scenes and Young Adult definitely had some laughs (mostly courtesy of Patton Oswalt). I'm looking forward to the Swell Season doc, and I'm vaguely thinking about watching The Killing. Also, there's a movie called Abscentia, from a filmmaker whose short film I love. I'm not big into horror but I'm thinking about watching that.
