CRZ Big Brother Administrator Since: 9.12.01 From: ミネアポリス Since last post: 2 hours Last activity: 2 hours # 1 Posted on 16.12.11 1420.22 | Instant Rating: 9.39 Welcome to the dead times. DVD makers have this crazy theory that releasing stuff RIGHT before Christmas tends not to sell very well, so they don't schedule stuff this week - or they schedule it and it mysteriously goes "unavailable" by the time I compile this list. (There are over fifty titles which you WON'T see because Amazon has marked them "unavailable" - and that may go up by Monday!) What we DO have are 59 DVDs, 27 Blu-rays and five "digital" releases...and there ARE some big titles in here, so don't just take the week off. JOIN US PICK OF THE WEEK (The W at Amazon) (Comedy Central, 2011) Futurama: Volume 6 A season so memorable nobody talked about it here: Futurama 6 [Blu-ray] THE REST OF THE TV OF THE WEEK (The CW, 2010-1) One Tree Hill: The Complete Eighth Season (+ UltraViolet Digital Copy) This is actually selling better than "Futurama" this week. I'm going to hope it's because there are both a DVD and Blu-ray version of "Futurama" and not that the DVD purchasing public is so heavy into "One Tree Hill" ...because that's what will get me through the night. (The Franchise: A Season with the San Francisco Giants - Showtime, 2011) The Franchise: Season 1 (Rescheduled from last week) The Donna Reed Show: Season 4 - The Lost Episodes (ABC, 1961-2) More info on this 5 DVD set at MPI (mpihomevideo.com) Prehistoric: Predators Of The Past (Discovery) NY Ink (TLC, 2011) MEXICAN TV OF THE WEEK Triunfo Del Amor (Televisa, 2010-1) telenovela AND FINALLY, "60 MINUTES" OF THE WEEK 60 Minutes - Hard Times Generation (DVD-R) 60 Minutes - The Flavorists (DVD-R) 60 Minutes - Angelina Or watch the entire 11/27 episode online for free at 60 Minutes (cbsnews.com) (DVD-R) Wow, that's really it. MOVIES OF THE WEEK I'm a little surprised - but I guess I shouldn't be TOO surprised - that the top selling title of this week is... (2011) Dolphin Tale (+ UltraViolet Digital Copy) Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, Morgan Freeman...and probably a dolphin Dolphin Tale (Movie-Only Edition + UltraViolet Digital Copy) [Blu-ray] Dolphin Tale (Blu-ray/DVD Combo + UltraViolet Digital Copy) Dolphin Tale (Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD / UltraViolet Digital Copy) Dolphin Tale (digital purchase) (Spain/USA, 2011) Midnight in Paris Kathy Bates, Adrien Brody, Carla Bruni, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Michael Sheen, Owen Wilson Midnight in Paris [Blu-ray] Midnight in Paris (digital purchase) (2011) Glee: The Concert Movie No website - Facebook Glee: The Concert Movie [Blu-ray] Glee: The 3D Concert Movie [Blu-ray] Glee: The Concert Movie (digital purchase) (2011) Warrior Tom Hardy IS, Joel Edgerton, Nick Nolte - I think Kurt Angle's in it too, right?

Cerebus Scrapple Since: 17.11.02 Since last post: 14 hours Last activity: 19 min. # 2 Posted on 16.12.11 1621.51 | Instant Rating: 0.95 Pics for Saint Nick and The Devil please. Saint Nick (Sint) was pretty good. It's certainly not gonna win any awards or anything like that, but if you wanna see a decent horror film about Christmas, this is good for a look. Make a movie night out of it and watch last years Rare Exports as well. Forget it Josh... it's Cerebustown.
