This weeks Tastiest Morsel
Funny People (2-Disc Unrated Edition)
Judd Apatow’s latest comedy didn’t do as well in theaters, but I think it will perform much better on DVD, especially since the features look hilarious including a feature that features a lot of Aziz Ansari who stole the movie.
Angels & Demons (Two-Disc Extended Edition)
After blistering reviews for The DaVinci Code Ron Howard apparently stepped up the action and toned down the exposition for the sequel. The features are pretty heavy if you get the two disc edition and should be a treat for fans of the book.
Last year’s holiday hit about a couple who have to go to four Christmas parties since both of their parents are divorced finally hits DVD. Just don’t expect much in the way of features.
Robert Rodriguez returns to kids fare hoping for more success like Spy Kids and not like Sharkboy and Lava Girl. Here kids find a wish granting rock which causes chaos in the neighborhood.
Kobe Doin’ Work: A Spike Lee Joint
Spike Lee unleashes his inner fanboy as he chronicles a Lakers game from pre-game to post-game to show everything that Kobe goes through. I would only recommend this for die-hard Lakers or Spike fans.
Aged and Confused
Bill Engvall, another Blue Collar Comedy veteran, releases a comedy special in time for the holidays. I would prefer this over the Larry the Cable Guy Christmas Special.
Crap master Uwe Boll continues to roll out video game adaptations and this looks to be particularly disappointing.
Double Dip DVDs
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
This was one of the first Disney DVDs to get a special edition when DVDs first dropped on the scene so this update was long coming as it languished in the vault. The set is full of features as usual and the Blu-ray has some new interactive features that they are trying out which might be annoying.
