CRZ Big Brother Administrator Since: 9.12.01 From: ミネアポリス Since last post: 5 days Last activity: 19 hours # 1 Posted on 14.1.11 1743.03 | Instant Rating: 9.80 Hello once again. Our purpose, as it is every week, is to give you a giant list of what's coming out on DVD this Tuesday, along with enough background to try to con you into making a purchase and putting a referral fee in our bill jar. Whether or not we actually SUCCEED in this purpose is irrelevant, because I was gonna watch a whole bunch of trailers with our without you, so I might as well write some stuff down while I'm doing it. You know the routine. 141 new DVDs, 23 new Blu-rays, and away we go... PICK OF THE WEEK Triggerman (The W at Amazon) (direct to video, Italy, 2010) Terence Hill, Paul Sorvino, Ornella Muti - "Wow, Terence Hill and/or Paul Sorvino is/are still alive!" Trailer and not much more info at Lionsgate (lionsgateshop.com) - I must say, this trailer actually kinda gets me interested in this film - you'd never know Hill was over 70 - in fact, for lack of anything better for me to pick let's spotlight THIS title, why not. You're welcome, Terence. Call me. (...in Italian, please) TV OF THE WEEK The top selling item of the week as I type this IS... (FX, 2010) Justified: The Complete First Season I am obligated to remind you that Timothy Olyphant went to Beyer High! Justified: The Complete First Season [Blu-ray] (CBS, 1990-1) [tvcom (CBS, 1989-90) Dallas: The Complete Fourteenth Season The complete FINAL season, so thankfully we're only a couple reunion movies away from closing the books on "Dallas" (NBC, 1996-7) Dark Skies: The Declassified Complete Series This is where we all met Jeri Ryan, right? More info at Shout! Factory (shoutfactorystore.com) (CBS, 1988) Hey Vern, It's Ernest!: The Complete Series It sure is amazing what some folks pine for DVD releases of, ain't it Vern? At least the price is right. Ernest Goes to Camp / Ernest Scared Stupid / Ernest Goes to Jail (Triple Feature) If you liked that, you'll probably also want... (Travel, 2009-10) Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations Coll 5 Pt.2 11 episodes (mostly season 6) plus bonusssses - list at Amazon Stingray - The Complete Series (NBC, 1985-7) Garfield Show: All You Need Is Love & Pasta Six shorts Inside the State Department (National Geographic, 2010) Simon & Simon - The Best Of Season 2 10 episodes Thirtysomething -Season 1 Volume 1 10 episode set, if you're too cheap to have already picked up Shout! Factory's Complete Season 1 21 Jump Street - The Complete Fourth Season (FOX, 1989-90) My Two Dads - You Can Count on Me! 10 episodes Nite Tales: The Series (BET, 2009) Presented by Flavor Flav - probably just season 1? Price Is Right-Very Best of Probably a repackage of the earlier set BRITISH TV OF THE WEEK (BBC, 2009) Merlin: The Complete Second Season Also aired here on Syfy in 2010 (BBC, 1986) Last of the Summer Wine: Vintage 1987 Series 9 - 1986, 1987, who's counting? (ME!) (BBC, 2005) Waking the Dead: Season 5 AUSTRALIAN (SORTA) TV OF THE WEEK (ABC3, 2010) Co-produced by Marvel with BET...but only ever aired in Australia. I'm confused! NERD ALERT! Not much more info at Marvel Knights: Black Panther Shout! Factory (shoutfactorystore.com) MOVIES OF THE WEEK THE BIG ONES (2010) Stone Robert DeNiro, Edward Norton, Milla Jovovich - barely released in October...I sure never heard about it; given the cast, I'm a little surprised - it must be...awful? Stone [Blu-ray] (2010) Takers Most names on the cover this week, I think... Matt Dillon, Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Jay Hernandez, Michael Ealy, Tip "TI" Harris, Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen Takers [Blu-ray] (Australia, 2010) Animal Kingdom Ben Mendelsohn, Joel Edgerton, Guy Pearce, Luke Ford, Jacki Weaver, Sullivan Stapleton, James Frecheville Animal Kingdom [Blu-ray] (direct to video, South Africa, 2010) Death Race 2 Luke Goss, Ving Rhames, Danny Trejo, Sean Bean - I ... must have missed the first one Death Race 2 [Blu-ray] Death Race 2 & Death Race Two Movie Pack Oh! I can get them both now! ....naaaah. Paper Man (2009) Jeff Daniels, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Lisa Kudrow - funny how Jeff Daniels' name finds it to the #1 spot on the box these days Paper Man [Blu-ray] The Penitent Man (2010) Lance Henriksen (1/24) The Virginity Hit (2010) Hey, remember all those great "viral" ads for this one? Yes, I'm kidding. WOW, did this ever bomb. I mean, SPECTACULARLY. Jack Goes Boating (2010) Philip Seymour Hoffman (also directed), Amy Ryan, John Ortiz, Daphne Rubin-Vega - ALMOST grossed as much as "The Virginity Hit" Jack Goes Boating [Blu-ray] Jack Goes Boating Same as above, different distributor, $1 cheaper? The Dogfather (Canada, 2010) Chris Parnell - there's probably a dog involved - heck, just go find out at Image (image-entertainment.com) - they even have a (really, really awful, awful, AWFUL) trailer which includes - I'm not making this up - a hiarious gag where dude steps on a rake and smacks himself in the face. Yes. Poor Chris Parnell.

(Spain/USA/France, 2010) Buried (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) Ryan Reynolds - This is actually the top selling movie of the week as I type this...perhaps part of that is because I don't see a DVD release, so you may have to pick up this Blu-ray to get it...that is, if you REALLY wanna see this movie on DVD...I heard it's not so great Nomad: The Warrior [Blu-ray] (France/Kazakhstan, 2005) Checking Out [Blu-ray] (1989) Jeff Daniels like you've never seen him before!

This is SO mine. I don't even think it held up at the time it aired. Yeah...it does not. Brought back memories, that's for sure. I'd forgotten how much of a sketch show it was. One of the few memories I had of the show was the "Hey Vern, it's Sports!" episode, because it's basically about wrestling and Ernest challenging Chainsaw Chester for a few thousand dollars.
