On the Shelves: DVD Releases for Feb 14, 2011

Some of the DVD/Blu-Ray releases for this week.

The Dead
The Dead – I’ve never heard of this but it sounds good. A survival movie that takes place during the Zombie Apocalypse.

Human Centipede 2
Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence – I watched the first one on Comcast On-Demand back in Summer 2010.  I’m morbidly curious, but have little desire to actually watch this movie.

Nude Nuns with Big Guns
Nude Nuns with Big Guns – This looks like it could be just crazy enough to work.

Perfect Weapon
The Perfect Weapon – This movie was part of the glut of late ’80s – early ’90s American martial arts action movies and, of course, I saw it in the theater. I love it. Dont’ get me wrong, it’s f**king terrible, but it’s one of those that is so terrible it’s awesome. I am actively campaigning for Jeff Speakman to appear in an Expendables movie. You hear me, Sly? Contact Speakman immediately.

The Monopoly Story
Under the Boardwalk: The Monopoly Story – This is a documentary that talks about the International Monopoly Championships as well as dicussing the original beginnings of the board game itself. I love pop culture history like this so I plan on watching this. There should be more stuff like this.

Best of the Slam Dunk Contest
The Best of the NBA Slam Dunk Contest – I was a big fan of the NBA during the 80s-90s. Some of the best Slam Dunk contests happened in that time including Spud Webb’s win in 1986 and the Dominique vs Jordan battle from 1988. I know this is NBA specific, but the NBA got the idea from the American Basketball Association (ABA) in the ’70s with Dr J. I hope they have footage of the first ABA Slam Dunk competition which actually happened at half time of the 1976 ABA All-Star game.

Magic & Bird
Magic & Bird: A Courtship of Rivals – Like I said, I was a big NBA fan in the 80s – 90s so naturally I was all up in this rivalry. I was totally for Bird as he’s my favorite ball player of all time, but now they are both retired I have a huge respect for Magic and how he played the game (his extra curricular activities aside).  I already own the amazing NBA videos Larry Bird: A Basketball Legend and Magic Johnson: It’s Always Showtime so this will be a nice companion video.  I’ve also read Bird’s previous books he wrote about playing and coaching in the NBA including the newest one he co-wrote with Magic. So I must own this.

    ‘Nude Nuns’ was decent enough for being an indie flick, but not great and not near “nude” enough (imo). We did a review last year on it (read here).

    The real highlight for me this week would have to be ‘The Dead’ hands-down. Be sure to check out a review of it later this afternoon. :)

      I knew I should have searched harder on SKC for a review of Nude Nuns. Yeah, that was my concern, they wouldn’t get near nude enough or have big enough guns for me. I’ll still check it out at some point.

    I may need to pick up a copy of The Perfect Weapon.

      I agree with those itnncadiig the pesron’s real name is a must for a site with this area of focus. Otherwise, what is the pesron trying to hide? Complete transparency is a must in the financial services sector these days.As well, I would suggest placing the link in the top navigation for the About page at the end of the right. It will likely be only accessed by some one new; once they know what this pesron is about’ they’ll likely not go to it again.The Top 100 link in the top menu is a bit misleading. It simply takes the visitor to a page where they can buy an ebook. I would rather see, yes for complete transparency, if a page is to have resources to purchase that the navigation button indicate this with a title of Resources’ or eBooks’ or Reference Material’ or . etc.Same for the Primer’ page.Same for the Interview Guide top navigation link; again, it just takes the pesron to a page where they can buy another eBook.I don’t mean to be critical, but it seems like the pages simply are there to sell stuff. Why would I return? Ask not what I can do for the site, ask what the site can do for me’.I hope that helps,Dan
