(Believe it or not, there are almost 21 months' worth of weekly releases here at The W. To find previous weeks, click on the ol' "DVD" icon.)

Hello.

This week's list of 476 (!) new releases includes 22 on Blu-Ray and that makes...dang, 454 DVDs. I'd love to say there were large chunks of things I could just ignore, but really there were only two or three. Get a snack - we may be here a while, ESPECIALLY if you find yourself clicking on the IMDb and tv.com logos to learn even MORE about what's coming up...and I hope you are.

Amongst so many choices it was actually rather easy to select a

PICK OF THE WEEK
Never Say Macbeth (The W at Amazon) (2007) I have a confession to make...Joe Gold, the writer/producer/star of this film, generously offered to send me a screener MONTHS ago so that I wouldn't bury his film deep into the AND THE REST section, so I took him up on it, because I am a cheap bastard who loves getting free screeners (or anything else, for that matter). Now, even though I dutifully carried that thing around with me on SEVERAL vacations, I never seemed to get the time to sit down and actually WATCH the thing. Still, I don't want to punish him for MY inability to make free time, so I will duly plug it at the top of the page. The important plot point is that the "M" word is one of the biggest curses in the theatre - I know it's true because I'm pretty sure I read about it in one of Uncle John's Bathroom Readers - or maybe it was just this webpage (home.flash.net). (By the way, it is NOT part of the curse that I never got around to watching the screener. I think.) More info at Vanguard and of course www.neversaymacbeth.com - Joe, I SWEAR I am going to watch this movie and tell everyone what I thought of it before I die. And if I don't....well, what are you gonna do? I'll be dead, after all.



MOVIES OF THE WEEK

FIRST, THE BIG ONES

What Happens in Vegas (2008) Ashton Kutcher, Cameroz Diaz marry - WITH HILARIOUS RESULTS

What Happens in Vegas [Blu-ray]

Postal (USA/Germany/Canada, 2007) Zack Ward, Dave Foley - from the fertile mind of Uwe Boll - 2 discs, even, so they can give you the "Postal 2" PC game - wasn't Cerebus really excited about this movie (and then never posted a review?)
Postal (UnRated) TWO MINUTES LONGER!!!
Postal [Blu-ray]

D'Autres Nouvelles des E'toile, Vol. 1 [Region 2] Serge Gainsbourg

FROM THE DISNEY VAULT
Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas: Collector's Edition - Ultimate Collector's DVD Set + Digital Copy (1993) Includes swag - Disney is hoping just ENOUGH swag so that you swallow that "Digital Copy" garbage and willingly shell out $120-180 for it

Holy shnikes. We are through the whole big ol' list. Aren't you glad I put it all on one page instead of in groups of 12 like Amazon? Well....*I* am.

I should point out that this list is as of Thursday, as I spent most of Friday at the state fair trying very hard to get sick. What this REALLY means is I'm sure there will be a bunch of adds and edits for me to tell you about on Monday. Until then, however, we have plenty to talk about...or more like ignore, mostly, yeah.

Any replies?
