Some of the DVD/Blu-Ray releases for this week.
Argo – This movie is excellent. From the story to the acting, you will thoroughly enjoy it if you haven’t seen it. It is excellent and deserving of the few Oscars it’s nominated for. The movie should have given Ben a Best Directing nod, but…WHATEVER.
Irreconcilable Differences – Adorably sad movie starring Ryan O’Neal, Shelley Long and Drew Barrymore. This was probably the first thing I saw Drew Barrymore in after ET. Firestarter came out the same year but I wasn’t allowed to see that until years later. Barrymore stars as a kid whose Hollywood writer/director parents drift apart and begin treating each other, and Barrymore, so poorly that she hires a lawyer and tries to get them divorced on her own. It’s a wonderful little movie that is cute and funny but also very sad.
Sinister – This movie looks pretty creepy. The poster alone is pretty horrifically bad ass. Plus it stars Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’onofrio and Fred Dalton Thompson (I thought he retired!).
The Package – An awesomely cheesy action movie starring Dolph Lundgren and Stone Cold Steve Austin? Where do I sign up? Oh, right here, where it says, The Package.
Lake Placid: The Final Chapter – I can’t believe that there have been four Lake Placid movies. FOUR. I liked the first one, but damn, three sequels? Really? I love that they call this “The Final Chapter”. Let’s not be naive, if this makes a profit, there’ll be another one. And it’ll probably be called Lake Placid: The New Beginning.
Street Sharks – The Complete 40 Episode Series – The awesomely 90s mutant sharks cartoon is FINALLY on DVD. I’m going to do my best not to mention that I’m still waiting for Teen Wolf….wait, crap.
Repligator – Look at that cover. I’m not sure what I can say that will add to that.
