It’s a bit of a DVD grab bag this week with a little something for everybody. From the mainstream romp of The Bounty Hunter to the hipster dream of Greenberg to the psychosexual psychosexuality of Chloe, there are plenty of ways to get your DVD on as summer wears on.
All that, plus a cadre of Basic Cable Dramas. This seems like the type of DVD week ripe for a number of polls.
Check it all out below…
The Bounty Hunter
As stated above, this is going to be an all-poll edition of the DVD picks this week. This poll will concern the film’s leading lady. One Jennifer Aniston. The question – do you like Jennifer Aniston?
Why would we raise this question? It’s simply really. Aniston appears to have the total package for brilliance: Great timing, fantastic looks, and the ability to slide into a variety of characters.
With so much going for her, why does she continue to make movies like this? Why do we have to see her trot across the country with Gerard Butler in a movie that looks like a ripoff of The Mexican? Why is the best of her last five movies about a dog? Why was she so excellent in The Good Girl yet never does any indie movies?
So the question remains…
If you need more evidence before you cast your vote, you can check out The Bounty Hunter on DVD.
Greenberg currently sits with a robust 73% on Rotten Tomatoes and a sensational 76 on Metacritic.
I, on the other hand, found the film to be absolute dreck and slapped it with a 1/10 (that’s lower than I rated Did You Hear About the Morgans?!)
So the question remains…
Again, if you need to do some research, you can check out Greenberg on DVD.

TV ON DVD
Basic Cable Extravaganza!
Now I watch a ton of TV. Like 30 shows at once during the TV season. Yet there is a massive blind spot in my watching schedule: Basic Cable Dramas. You know the ones. The dramas that inspire SNL sketches like “What is Burn Notice?”. The shows on the USAs and TNTs of the world that all appear to be the same basic premise with the same basic level of actor.
Yet, I appear to be in the minority. As not only do these shows get good ratings, but they appear to have some amount of critical acclaim.
So I pose the question…
Of course, these come in honor of the following seasons being released on DVD:
And, Just So You Know, This DVD Exists. . .
What DVDs are you looking forward to picking up this week?
