It's always been curious to me how television DVDs come out like a week before the next season of the show premieres. I get it, sure, but you're not exactly leaving a lot of time for people to catch up on last season before launching them into the next. If this week's DVD releases are any indication, though, we're due for the motherload of television premieres over the next couple of weeks.
Also of note (which I forgot to put on the list) is the Star Wars Blu-Ray set that comes out on Friday, for some reason. Let's get ready to weep for our childhoods!
I'll actually be curious to see this again in a non-3D format, and to just give it a second look-over in general. I suspect I'll like it less than I did when I reviewed it, but maybe the lack of post-converted darkness will enhance the experience. We'll find out!
I didn't quite love Hesher, but it's worth checking out at least once, by any standard. Unless you love seeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt in tighty whities, in which case you should run, post-haste, to your local DVD retailer.
|3. Conan O'Brien Can't Stop|
I'll be curious to see if this is one of those documentaries that immediately appears on Netflix, or if I'll have to actually rent the DVD. Either way, I'll check it out when it arrives.
|4. Citizen Kane|
I liked this movie before it was cool. I guess you can like it too with the 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-Ray, but real aficionados only watch it on the original vinyl.
|5. Love, Wedding, Marriage|
This movie made less than two grand in theaters and has a resounding 0% Rotten Tomatoes meter. That's a pretty spectacular failure by any standard. Of course I can't wait to check it out.
|6. Meek's Cutoff|
Another one of those 86% critic rating, 60% audience rating Rotten Tomato meters. I've heard really good things about it, but I've also heard it's super-slow. Sometimes those are my favorite films, though.
|7. Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown|
Someone made this.
|8. Pure Country 2: The Gift|
Dean Cain made this (!).
|9. The Big Bang Theory|
This week in television DVD sets: Blue Bloods: Season One, Big Bang Theory: Season Four, Camelot: Season One, Glee: Season Two, Volume Two, Glee: The Complete Second Season, Grey's Anatomy: Season Seven, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia: Season Six, Modern Family: Season Two, Private Practice: Season Four, Rescue Me: Season Six/Season Seven, Sanctuary: Season Three, Spartacus: Gods Of The Arena, Supernatural: Season Six
