If you like bad movies, then this week is a time to celebrate, as both The Losers and Cop Out bring their questionable credentials into your house on DVD. If you let them. They’re joined on DVD by the super-hyped The Runaways and a show that your grandparents are certain to love.
Check it all out below…
Cop Out and The Losers
But it’s more than that. Each one of these movies seems to mare a potential end. With The Losers, it could be the end of the “Hey, it was a comic! Let’s make a movie!” mentality. Just look at what happened to this and Jonah Hex. Not good.
With Cop Out it signals the end of many things. Firstly, the buddy cop drama. This one is a long suffering pet that was finally put out of its misery with this movie. Remember Showtime? Remember I Spy? Well, both of those didn’t kill it, but they certainly laid the ground work for Cop Out to do the deed. This genre just seems exhausted.
Plus, what about Kevin Smith? Where does he go from this monstrosity? At this point, he’s never really recovered from Jersey Girl and now he’s farmed out as a director-for-hire for this schlock? He seems doomed.
So if you want to see the beginning of the end, just buy the DVDs:

TV ON DVD
“My Boys”: Season 2 & 3
I honestly had no idea this show was still on the air. I thought it was cancelled two years ago.
As it turns out, the last episode of the previous season aired about 15 months ago. 15 months!
And that’s becoming a big problem. A MAJOR problem for these cable shows. How is anyone supposed to really latch on to them when there is more than a year gap between episodes.
Like “Breaking Bad”? Well, this time next year the fourth season WON’T HAVE PREMIERED YET! What about “Curb Your Enthusiasm”? All we no is that it’s coming. Not when, just that it is. Seeya in 2012, Larry.
So why? Why do these cable shows continue to torture us with these long waiting periods? Well, I’m sure it helps with DVD sales.
So when you buy “My Boys” on DVD, just know that you’re adding to a growing problem.
