This week’s Tastiest Morsel
UP (Two-Disc Deluxe Edition + Digital Copy)
Pixar continues to pump out near perfect films and this film didn’t disappoint even though I doubted them after I saw that the premise was about a grumpy old man who builds a balloon house. I will never doubt them again. You can choose between the four-disc Blu-ray combo pack or a two-Disc Standard edition.
The Ugly Truth (Widescreen Edition)
Katherine Heigl seemed like she was on the brink of stardom before she starting biting all the hands that feed her by ripping apart the writers from Grey’s Anatomy and pissing on Judd Apatow after Knocked Up. I hope this is the last time she is mentioned on this site with this formulaic rom-com.
Ashton Kutcher stars in Spread as a young man who sleeps with rich older women to enjoy all the comforts of money. It may be interesting to see this movie since this story is usually about a female who uses her body to her advantage and not a male, and surprisingly the movie is being hyped a little for its acting which seems impossible with Ashton in the lead and Anne Heche as his sugar mama.
The Accidental Husband
I hadn’t heard much about this film so I checked it out on Rotten Tomatoes where it is enjoying a 0%. That was enough for me to skip this Uma Thurman romantic comedy.
G.I. Joe A Real American Hero: Complete Collectors Set [The Complete Series]
Finally, they are releasing the full series instead of odd collections of partial seasons. Just like the recent Transformers set it comes with the old PSAs and some featurettes, and unlike that set it comes with a dog tag flash drive and a Footlocker collector’s case.
Greg Behrendt is That Guy from That Thing
Greg Behrendt is that Guy who wrote that book He’s Just Not That Into You and had a weird TV advice show for a long time touring stand-up comedian. This is him getting back to comedy.
Double Dip DVDs
Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut
Ugh. This double dip hurt me because I fell into the trap of buying one of the Best Buy exclusive versions for the initial DVD release. Now, they release a loaded set for less than thirty bucks and I am kicking myself. This includes five discs of content some of which was available separately before like the animated comic book, The Tales of the Black Freighter (which you can watch interwoven into the film), and the “Under the Hood” short.
Monsters, Inc. (Four-Disc Edition) [Blu-ray]
This is the same as the previous release but it comes in the traditional Disney Blu-ray style with a standard DVD and a digital copy.
Mamma Mia! The Movie – Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! DVD Gift Set Version
After the random reissues last Christmas season made decent money we can expect to see a lot of double dipping over the next few weeks. This first set includes the soundtrack and a booklet.
Dawson’s Creek: The Complete Series
This is a reissue with a nicer casing but no new features or content.
