Still too nice outside to stay INside watching DVDs....although the heat wave may convince you otherwise (so long as you've got good air conditioning in the room with the DVD or Blu-ray player!) We're breaking down a new 120 DVDs and 23 Blu-rays out the week of Tuesday, 8/17.

PICK OF THE WEEK

Not much here, but something DID pique my interest...

Cemetery Junction (The W at Amazon) (UK, 2010) Written/directed by Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant, which means "automatically gets me interested" - didn't get much a theatrical run (if at all) over here and I SURE hadn't heard about it until now... Christian Cooke, Felicity Jones, Tom Hughes, Jack Doolan, Emily Watson, Ricky Gervais, Matthew Goode, Ralph Fiennes
Cemetery Junction [Blu-ray]



TV OF THE WEEK

(top ones here are listed roughly in order of how fast they were getting pre-ordered as this list was compiled)

Dexter: The Complete Season Four (Showtime, 2009) Hope you like naked John Lithgow!
Dexter: The Complete Fourth Season [Blu-ray]
Dexter: Seasons One-Four
Dexter: Seasons One-Four [Blu-ray] MOST EXPENSIVE ITEM OF THE WEEK

One Tree Hill: The Complete Seventh Season (The CW, 2009-10)

Friday Night Lights: The Fourth Season (NBC, 2009-10)

Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends: Season Four (NBC, 1962-3) tv.com doesn't have that great a listing, so here's one from Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org)

Ugly Betty: The Complete Fourth and Final Season (ABC, 2009-10)

Cougar Town: Complete First Season (ABC, 2009-10)

Wolverine and the X-Men: Final Crisis Trilogy (Nicktoons, 2009) Episodes 23-26...and that'll complete the series

Keeping Up with the Kardashians: The Complete Third Season (E!, 2009) Hey so that one girl sure has a big butt huh

Inside Hurricane Katrina: Commemorative Edition (National Geographic, 2005)

Citizen Architect (Citizen Architect: Samuel Mockbee and the Spirit of the Rural Studio - KLRU, 2010) (8/23)

Batman: The Brave and the Bold - Season One, Part One (Cartoon Network, 2009) Hmm - I think it's a compilation of the previously released three volumes - maybe instead of breaking up the season, they could RELEASE THE WHOLE THING SOONER OR LATER

COLLECTIONS OF WHATEVER LOOKED PUBLIC-DOMAINY ENOUGH

These are all from Mill Creek Entertainment (millcreekent.com), who no longer let me direct link to their titles, so screw 'em. Fortunately, you can save yourself a visit as most of these titles are run down in detail over at Amazon. Unfortunately, many AREN'T.
