Welcome back everybody. Not a very strong week of releases here, but here’s my picks this week. Some will make a great stocking stuffer. Others are worth a rent.
I thought Ted was good, but I was expecting it to be funnier. It feels like it held back, maybe the unrated version enhances everything, I haven’t seen that cut yet. Really enjoyed the Flash Gordon stuff sprinkled through this movie. If your a big Family Guy fan and love everything Seth McFarlane touches then buy this, if not, rent it first.
The Bourne Legacy
Can’t wait to see this one. Truthfully hearing about this and seeing the trailers, I thought it was a dumb idea to continue the series without Matt Damon. But all I hear is good things about this flick.
Futurama: Volume 7
The always hilarious Futurama is back with volume 7. Remember when there were no new episodes of Futurama for years? It feels good that the great depression is over.
Girls: The Complete First Season
The HBO show Girls is finally out on DVD and Blu Ray. Everyone is buzzing about this series. I have yet to watch it, but I’m interested. Judd Apatow is executive producer and his production company produces it, so its sure to have the touch of gold.
Ice Age 4: Continental Drift
I think I’ve seen the first two Ice Age movies. I don’t really like them, it just feels to me that they crank these out. But its Christmas time, and I don’t hate them, I just have more quality affairs to feast my eyes on.
In Search Of… The Complete Series
The Leonard Nimoy classic series In Search Of gets the box treatment! 146 episodes on 21 discs will sure to keep you busy for awhile. The series ran from 1976 to 1982. Had episodes ranging from UFO’s, ghosts, and cryptozoology. A centerpiece to any nerd DVD collection.
That’s it for this week, next week we got Total Recall and the Mike Birbiglia movie Sleepwalk With Me. Stay tuned.
