(Click on the "DVD" icon to see previous weeks! We go all the way back to January, 2007!)

Hello.

The usual very light pre-Christmas list greets us for my wife's birthday, 12/22! Only - ONLY ninety DVDs, 24 Blu-ray and one UMD are represented by the links and information below.

(The low volume and some projected time constraints tomorrow and Friday means you get this list two days early! Hooray?)

PICK OF THE WEEK
When the pickings are slim, go to your default picks - and fortunately, we have one easy one...
Family Guy Presents: Something Something Something Dark Side (The W at Amazon) (FOX, 2010) Peter Griffin's double-length episode retelling of The Empire Strikes Back won't air for many months, so if you want to see it NOW, you're stuck paying for a DVD. Well... or other illegal methods we can't talk about here. If you can get past all the product placement and anti-conservative jokes, it'll still probably be pretty funny!
Family Guy Presents: Something Something Something Dark Side [Blu-ray] Seems a little silly to have a Blu-ray copy when it's still not even in a widescreen aspect ratio - also, if you care about such things, it appears you'll only get a "digital copy" if you go Blu-ray
Family Guy: Something, Something, Something Darkside/Blue Harvest At this price, you might want to go ahead and just get both of them, even if you already have "Blue Harvest" - give it to a friend and keep the PRETTY BOX that holds both of them...



MORE TV OF THE WEEK

Taxi: The Final Season (NBC, 1982-3) That'd be season 5, the NBC season
Taxi: The Complete Series Well....I may have to break down and pick this up now that it's all out there.

The Secret Life Of The American Teenager: Season 3 (ABC Family, 2009) Actually, "Volume 3," which means "first half of Season 2"

Kyle XY: The Complete Third And Final Season (ABC Family, 2009)

TV MOVIE (FROM CANADA!) OF THE WEEK
Torso (Torso: The Evelyn Dick Story - made for TV, Canada, 2002)

JAPANESE TV OF THE WEEK
Baian the Assassin: Complete (4pc) (Sub) (Shikakenin Fujieda Baian - Japan, 1990-1993) Four discs (eight episodes) - Ken Watanabe IS Dr. Baian

AND FINALLY, "60 MINUTES" OF THE WEEK
60 Minutes - Personal Foul (December 6, 2009)
60 Minutes - The Zone (December 6, 2009) See this episode at 60 Minutes (cbsnews.com)



MOVIES OF THE WEEK

THE BIG ONES

District 9 (Single-Disc Edition) (USA/New Zealand, 2009)
District 9 (Two-Disc Edition) Adds four featurettes - probably not worth eight bucks unless you're REALLY into the film?
District 9 [Blu-ray] Hmm, no digital copy except on the Blu-ray HERE either - could this be the new trend?
District 9 [UMD for PSP] Interestingly, the UMD isn't even MENTIONED at the Sony Home Video page for D-9 (sonypictures.com)

(500) Days of Summer (2009) Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zooey Deschanel
(500) Days of Summer [Blu-ray] with Digital Copy This must be the new Fox thing...no digital copy unless you go Blu-ray

All About Steve (2009) Sandra Bullock, Thomas Haden Church, Bradley Cooper
All About Steve [Blu-ray]

Extract (2009) Jason Bateman, Mila Kunis, Kristen Wiig, Ben Affleck - Kind of a stealth release for Mike Judge's latest box office underperformer (just under $11M over six weeks)
Extract [Blu-ray]

Call of The Wild - 3D (2009) Christopher Lloyd

It Might Get Loud (2008) Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White all talk about their guitars for around 97 minutes
It Might Get Loud [Blu-ray]

Beyond a Reasonable Doubt (2009) Michael Douglas, Jesse Metcalfe, Amber Tamblyn - remake of Fritz Lang's 1956 film of the same name grossed less in American theatres upon its release back in September than your salary - so...you know, THERE'S something good to feel about in today's economy
Beyond a Reasonable Doubt [Blu-ray]

Staten Island (France/USA, 2009) Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Seymour Cassel - I don't think this was ever in theatres, actually?
Staten Island [Blu-ray] The Blu-ray is actually a buck cheaper than the DVD!

MOST POINTLESS DIRECT-TO-VIDEO SEQUEL OF THE WEEK
American Pie Presents: The Book of Love [Blu-ray]
American Pie Presents: The Book of Love (direct to video, 2009) Is Eugene Levy hard up for money? Well, you can now win countless bar bets by knowing that amongst the many, many names of actors to appear in "American Pie" franchise, you can now add C. Thomas Howell, Dustin Diamond, Sherman Hemsley, Rosanna Arquette, Bret Michaels and Kevin Federline. (If any of these gentlemen have previously appeared in an "American Pie" - ha - film, I apologise for my oversight, because I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY OF THESE MOVIES.)

Noble Things (2008) Michael Parks, Lee Ann Womack, Ryan Hurst, Brett Moses, Dominique Swain - AND a soundtrack that includes BO BICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Blind Date (USA/UK, 2007) Stanley Tucci (also co-wrote/directed), Patricia Clarkson - remake - more info at Cinemavault (cinemavault.com)

Ghost Machine (UK, 2009) Sean Faris, Rachael Taylor, Luke Ford

Paranormal Entity (2009) Latest ripoff from The Asylum (theasylum.cc) hasn't made it into the IMDb yet. But, see, unlike "Paranormal Activity," THIS one is TOTALLY REAL. And EASILY not worth $22.49 - or possibly even $2.49.

Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day (Canada, 2009) I understand this passes for high humour up north
Trailer Park Boys: The Movie / Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day [Blu-ray] WOW this seems expensive, especially since I heard that the first movie (Canada, 2006) wasn't even that good

BIG COLLECTION OF THE WEEK
Audrey Hepburn Couture Muse Collection "Unique collector's package!" I guess it's a...hatbox? Includes Breakfast at Tiffany's, Sabrina, War and Peace, Roman Holiday, Paris When it Sizzles, My Fair Lady and Funny Face and ten postcards - sorry, "designer cards"

The Philadelphia Experiment (1984) This would be an Anchor Bay rerelease, most likely...
Flowers in the Attic (1987) ...as would this

DOCUMENTARIES OF THE WEEK
Ginevra's Story: Solving the mysteries of Leonardo da Vinci's first known portrait. (1999) More info at Microcinema (microcinemadvd.com)

I just saw another ad for it on TV and I really, REALLY wish they hadn't...


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
...blown the reveal of the Giant Chicken as Boba Fett.


Seeing it for myself during the movie would have been a huge mark out moment. Still is, but now it's slightly diminished.

I know it's a few days late, but I wanted to get people's thoughts on the first episode, if you saw it. It was billed as something completely different than anything on TV right now, and I gotta agree. The color scheme, the shots....
