Hello.

A nice round 333 listings grace this week's version of the "new for the coming week" DVD list that I find myself compelled to put together. They are pretty loosely organised this time around, mostly because there weren't a lot of big groups this week.

For those of you who haven't endured one of these lists before, it works thusly:

Hovering over links should provide you with Amazon's current price.

CLICKING on those links will take you to the Amazon shopping cart with a friendly referral from The W - consider making your purchase through us and it'll place a few coins in our tip jar!

Because Amazon sometimes can't come correct with the information, you will see some exposition from me (or, more likely, a bad joke) in addition to the listing along with IMDb icons (which can be clicked to take you to a movie's IMDb listing) or tv.com icons (which can be clicked to take you to the relevant episode list from tv.com)

All links should open in new windows so you can come right back here after your research! (If you want - we're totally flexible about that!)

Please tell a friend (or vote 'em up Digg/Netscape/&c. with a click of the icon of your choice at the bottom) about this post because it takes me a long time and I'm a big fan of more eyeballs!

Please feel free to add a reply and share your two cents about any of the listings you see here - show off your impressive knowledge, share your opinion about something you've seen, something you're looking forward to seeing, or make your own crappy jokes which are better than mine!

We also hope that if you buy something, you come back and tell us what you thought about it!

If you have something to say but don't want to say it publicly (or register for the board), you can also email me direct at CRZ.DVD@gmail.com!

Without further ado...

Good flick. Chris Cooper was awesome, but it just felt like the movie left something out (I don't think they delved enough into Hanssen's psyche, I guess).

Hrrmmm

Well, in a way, you could say that the short story is a sub-set of what happens in the film...

And in a way you could say that it is completely different.

In the film, the crazy scientist sending the boxes of toys back to the past is doing so for a reason. The film is set in and around the Pacific Northwest and there is an environmental message to the film as well as a lot of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy thrown in.

(The psychologist in the story is replaced by the boy's teacher, a Buddhist who dreams the future. Every time he does his equally spiritual girlfriend bugs him for the lotto numbers. This I found hilariously real.)

There are also some out-right changes. In the story, there is Mr. Bear and a bizarre anatomically (sort-of) correct doll. In the movie those two dolls get combined into one character a bunny rabbit called Mimzy that creates an additional connection between Lewis Carroll and the story.

Also the boy develops the ability to control insects by whistling which is not in the book at all.

I liked the film quite a bit although in places the film echoes E.T. to its detriment. And I love Michael Clarke Duncan but he's no Peter Coyote.

If it's Sharks versus Lions, this could be the best DVD ever.

Or maybe that would be Sharks Vs. Loins.

I thought that this was Zyzzyx Road, the $30 grossing movie, but IMDB lists them as two different things. Weird. I'll bet "Zyzzyx Road" had to change it's name because of "Zzyzx". Who would have thought that they'd make two different movies about a road named after an unincorporated town located off of I-15 between Los Angeles and Las Vegas? Hollywood really is out of ideas.

Fair enough! I have a strict policy NEVER to argue with actual executive producer types about DVDs I haven't actually viewed, because they always know whereof they speak, whilst I'm talking out of my ass. ;-) It brings a sense of order to my world just knowing that you Google your own stuff just like everybody else does.

It does my heart good, in this sea of Sporanos chaff, to see Deadwood Season 3 at the top of the pre-order list.

Spoiler free! Got to see Green Lantern tonight at an advance screening. Very good movie. It's not Iron Man, but it's every bit as good as Thor.
