LastHouseOnTheLeftALP8-17-09

There’s not much to get excited about with regards to new features this week. Just another cookie-cutter horror movie and a kids’ TV star on the big screen. Instead, TV is coming up big this week with a treasure trove of series hitting the DVD shelves.

Check it all out below…

FEATURE FILMS

The Last House on the Left
This movie did well at the box office. How? No idea. They’re all the same. It’s like an endless trailer loop with a few new characters and another lame title. Yet audiences keep getting seduced. Arggghhh, too lame to go on – just Buy The DVD if you really want to see this kind of stuff again

Hannah Montana: The Movie
Again, this the best we can do?  This is what DVD releases have come to this week?  Okay, so we get it, this TV show is pretty popular and Miley Cyrus has a legion of fans, but can’t we keep her on the small screen?  Do we really need precious silver screen space taken in theaters by something most people are just going to get on DVD anyway?
Double Argghhh:  Check out the art movies below.

TV ON DVD

“The Simpsons” – Season 12

TV on DVD is a wonderful thing. Almost without exception. But then there’s the case of buying “The Simpsons” on DVD. It doesn’t really make any sense. Sure, it’s the greatest series of all time, but it’s on TV all the time. Most Fox affiliates carry three episodes of the classic cartoon every single day.

So again, what is the actual point of owning this series on DVD? Isn’t it more fun to have it appear randomly three times a day – while the affiliates select which episodes we see? Doesn’t the surprise factor make it seem a bit newer, a bit fresher?

Of course, those reruns aren’t loaded with the myriad features available on this four-DVD set including commentaries, loads of deleted scenes, Comic Book Guy featurettes and numerous Easter eggs!

SPECIAL EDITION OF THE WEEK

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days – Deluxe Edition
HowToLoseAGuyin10DaysALP8-17-09
Ever grimace in horror at a trailer for The Ugly Truth? Ever cry with anger when the coming attractions alert you to the existence of Fool’s Gold? Well, this is the movie to blame. The rom-com was in a realm of actual intelligence around the turn of the century with movies like Sleepless in Seattle and When Harry Met Sally.

When this movie came out, the masses stormed to the theaters on Valentine’s day in 2003, and gave birth to pretty and vapid people meandering through lame situations without a speck of charm.

If you’re happy about the change, you can check out this special edition DVD.

Horrible Straight-To-DVD Release of the Week

Three terrible movies, three new DVDs. Which is the worst? Cast your vote and tell the world!

The nominees are:

The Bridge to NowhereBridgeToNowhereALP8-17-09

The Case to Vote for It: When a movie shares its title with a failed Sarah Palin municipal project, that’s a bad sign. When the movie is about a group of friends who unwittingly become very successful running a prostitution ring, that’s a very bad sign. When the movie features a big name like Ving Rhames and nobody’s ever heard of it, that’s an incredibly bad sign.

The Poker House

ThePokerHouseALP8-17-09The Case to Vote for It: Sadly, this movie has nothing to do with poker.  So its title is an outright lie. Instead it’s a story about young girl who uses basketball as a means of escaping a dismal existence. And it’s the directorial debut of Tank Girl star Lori Petty.  That doesn’t sound too promising, now does it?

Stuntmen

StuntmenALP8-17-09The Case to Vote for It: Ever wonder what happened to the guy who played Superman in that movie that came out a few years ago that a lot of people saw but nobody remembers actually came out? Well, he’s the start of this mockumentary, about two stunt men vying to see who’s the stuntiest stunter whoever stunted. Or something like that.
