If you like indie movies, this is a dream DVD weekend for you as it is absolutely loaded with smaller pictures. Sure, there’s a wide release in there (Takers), but for the most part, this weekend belongs to the little guy with everything from Oscar contenders (Animal Kingdom) to people writing spam e-mails saying their movie should be an Oscar contender (Buried). So set your DVD player for “Arthouse” and enjoy.

Or, if none of that is your bag, you can watch lots of old TV shows on DVD. Or relax with the canine misadventures of Chris Parnell.

Feature Films

Red

Have you not seen Red? Well, maybe you have. If you saw The A-Team, The Losers, Mr. and Mrs. Smith or any other action “comedy” with violence and jokes coming in equal measures then, yes, you’ve seen Red.

It’s literally become that formulaic. Take some kooky characters, give them plenty of firepower and roll out the weird jokes and overwhelming set pieces. Some must love the formula. While others, like me, just feel like they’re seeing the same movie over and over again.

If you are one who loves this formula, then buy Red on DVD.

TV On DVD

“Glee”: Season 2, Vol. 1

I can’t decide if releasing these DVD boxes mid-season is a good or a bad thing.

Is it a good thing because it easily allows people who’ve missed episodes to catch up? Is it a bad thing because these are essentially the equivalent of a bare bones relief of a feature film in it that forces people to buy the full season down the road?

Agh! I can’t decide.

Either way, you can buy Glee Season 2, Vol. 1 on DVD
