DVDs With Dean – Release Date May 26th

This week brings out a few movies that died at the box office and some classic TV shows although I wonder if Land of the Lost qualifies as “classic”.

Pick of the Week
Falling Down (Deluxe Edition)
Michael Douglas and Joel Schumacher returned to make some new features for this re-release including a Commentary and a featurette. If you grab the Blu-ray it comes with a detailed color booklet. If you like an angry Michael Douglas score this and have a movie night double feature with The War of the Roses.

This movie may do better than normal given the weak competition. The movie has been criticized for being a little far-fetched but at least we know it will be well acted with Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), Diane Lane (Unfaithful), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Lookout), and Thomas Jane (The Punisher).

Powder Blue
This is being sold as the movie where Jessica Biel gets naked, and the movie has nothing else going for it. Although, I bet it still sells well.

New In Town
Renee Zellweger stars in the often told tale of a cold rich business person falling in love with small town life.

TV and Re-Issues
Jeeves & Wooster: The Complete Series
Long before House, Hugh Laurie was known for comedy back in the UK and this series highlighted his skills as a rich buffoon constantly saved by his wise valet Jeeves played by Stephen Fry. The series had four seasons which consisted of twenty-three episodes.

Land of the Lost: Complete Series (Limited Edition Gift Set)
You can now own the campy series that spawned the latest Will Ferrell film. The collection has all three seasons of forty-three total episodes.

M. Butterfly
David Cronenberg’s adaptation of the Madame Butterfly play gets a fresh release with a few new features including a conversation with Cronenberg himself.

The Closer: The Complete Fourth Season
This show with Kyra Sedgwick has put TNT on the map, and is helping the network establish second tier shows like Saving Grace with Holly Hunter, Leverage with Timothy Hutton, and Dark Blue with Dylan McDermott. I don’t care for this procedural show, but I love the cable networks stepping up their game and shaming the big four.

Super Bowl XLIII Film Ads!

I know I’m in a distinct minority here, but the only thing that interests me about the Super Bowl each year is the advertisements, and usually only the ones promoting the latest films and TV shows. Thanks to the wonder that is the Internet, I don’t even need to endure the game anymore. In that spirit we will be adding the latest Film and TV ads to this article all through the weekend and probably into Monday and Tuesday, so keep checking back often. Also, look for further commentary on the ads once they’re all up.

[UPDATED] – The film ads will now be contained here. If there are any good ones for TV shows, we will add a second article.

First up is the new teaser for G. I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Enjoy!

New Film Images From Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly currently has a showcase of images from the big films coming out in 2009. Of particular interest are the below images from Terminator Salvation, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Up, Where the Wilds Things Are, Watchmen, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Land of the Lost. Of all those films and the ones featured at EW, I think I’m most interested in Terminator Salvation at this point, although Watchmen is running a close second. The Harry Potter films have been very fun so far, but I just don’t feel the need to see it opening day. Land of the Lost could be very interesting, but the original is a childhood favorite, so if they turn it into a typical Will Ferrell farce I may be highly disappointed. Anyhoo, peep the photos below and check out the full article over at Entertainment Weekly.
