I'm a little early becuase it's SUCH a light list that I'm already done. This week I have 144 DVDs, 25 Blu-ray and 10 intangibles (downloads) to tell you about. READ ON! PICK OF THE WEEK - AKA "MOVIE STARRING STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN OF THE WEEK" Tactical Force (The W at Amazon) (2011) Steve Austin, Michael Jai White - they make it too hard to get information on Steve Austin's ouvre - don't you agree? Luckily, we found a YouTube trailer (youtube.com) and the only conclusion we can draw is...this movie must not have cost very much to make (but still looks awesome and I need to see it) Tactical Force [Blu-ray] MOVIES OF THE WEEK THE BIG ONES Listed roughly in top selling order...

JUST the DVDs The Fox and the Hound / The Fox and the Hound Two (30th Anniversary Edition) (2011) Your Highness Danny McBride, James Franco, Natalie Portman - includes theatrical and unrated versions Your Highness [Blu-ray + Digital Copy] Your Highness digital purchase (2011) Mars Needs Moms Perhaps the worst Disney animated feature in the history of Disney - and yet it's STILL all the way up here...

Originally posted by CRZ Raging Boll (Canada/Germany/Spain/USA, 2010) Your dreams have come true - it's TOTALLY about Uwe Boll! But I suspect, all you really need to watch is the trailer, and fortunately the website's got one: Why are you doing this to me? Hundreds of DVD bootleggers are crying over this release. I know of three different guys who go to comic conventions and this sells great for them. Well, not any more... Originally posted by CRZ Best of Bizarre: 1-5 Best of Bizarre: 6-10 (CTV/Showtime, 1980-5) Oh wow, I BARELY remember this John Byner series - you may remember it as the genesis of Bob Einstein's "Super Dave Osborne" character before he'd start regularly appearing on NBC's Letterman My local CBS station in Tampa Florida used to have an AWESOME programming block on Saturday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 that started with Benny Hill, then this show, then an awesome show called Wizards And Warriors. I loved Saturdays. Forget it Josh... it's Cerebustown.

That's my review. I'm dismayed that I've fallen so far behind on Stone Cold Steve Austin movies. Austin's really cranking these things out. Tactical Force? I still need to see Hunt to Kill. Speaking of still need to see, I've yet to see Batista's latest masterpiece House of the Rising Sun. @BackoftheHead
