This Week’s DVDs that Don’t Suck: 8/26/2008

Tuesday, August 26 by

We're only one week away from an avalanche of good TV premieres, so I wouldn't go crazy buying DVDs this week unless you're in some kind of full-body cast. But there is some good stuff dropping. Here are the highlights.

Heroes: Season 2

Recap: Weeds: Episode 4.11

Tuesday, August 26 by

Episode: "Head Cheese". After last week's big happenings, things slowed down for this episode, probably so they can get everyone into position for the last two episodes of the season. It looks like some shit is about to go down. Nancy:

Junky Love with Jordana Brewster

Monday, August 25 by

Man, she’s so pretty it kind of hurts. And not only that, she went to Yale. And she’s in the new Fast and Furious movie, which I have to wait until 2009 to see. Did I mention how pretty she is? Man.

Transporter 3 Trailer

Monday, August 25 by

When I saw the first Transporter, I didn’t think that they would ever get to a number three. At least not one that made it all the way to theatres and had the same main character. Either way, I’ll see it because I like to watch Jason Statham break stuff. It’s rad. Drops Nov. 26th.

6 Reasons We Should All Be Glad the Olympics Are Over

Monday, August 25 by

With last night's closing ceremonies, the 2008 Beijing Olympics closed out one of the highest rated TV events in the history of the idiot box. We're all guilty of watching at least some of it, but now it's time to get back to business as usual. That business, of course, is not giving a crap about anything even remotely Olympics related.

Hamlet 2

Monday, August 25 by

I don’t envy my friends that have been pursuing acting as a career.  It’s a tough gig. You have to make really hard decisions. Like when you finally decide to kill yourself because it didn’t work out, should you use a gun or pills? I say 20 gauge in the mouth. Its not an easy job.From IMDB:

Review: Hamlet 2

Monday, August 25 by

You can lament the time wasted in your youth, your shitty attention span in elementary school, the rattail that you had when you were in middle school, the girls that you could have screwed in high school but you didn’t, the girls that you could have screwed in college but you still didn’t.

Video of RockNRolla’s Opening Credits Doesn’t Suck

Monday, August 25 by

Reviews of Guy Ritchie's upcoming Brit crime flick are already sneaking out, but I'm refusing to read them. I'm convinced this movie is going to be his return to form and that it is possible to go back to being awesome, even after Madonna has been sucking the life out of you for the past few years. And I don't mean suck in the totally awesome way.

Sex, Drugs, and Guns: The Best Docs About The Black Market

Monday, August 25 by

Weed, porn and illegal labor alone account for more than 10% of the American economy. Add weapons manufacturing, prostitution, and other assorted drugs into the mix and you’re looking at a significant portion of every dollar spent. The “shadow economy” is very well hidden. Luckily we have films to give us an insider’s view.

Mad Men: Ep 2.05

Monday, August 25 by

Episode 5, “The New Girl” starts off with Pete Campbell and his wife at the doctor. The doc is smoking a cigarette and discussing fertility issues with the couple, who are having some trouble with making a baby.

Review: The Rocker

Monday, August 25 by

Here we are at the warm, gross dregs of the summer movie season where somewhat decent movies come to mingle with the crap, begging audiences for their money like cinematic homeless people. The Rocker is every bit as funny as Step Brothers.

The Rocker

Monday, August 25 by

20 years after he gets kicked out of his hair metal band, a drummer named Fish tries to take his nephew's band of high school kids to the top of the music world. It's a role custom made for Jack Black, but he was too busy making Tropic Thunder, so they gave it to Dwight from The Office.Director: Peter Cattaneo

Recap: Generation Kill: Episode 1.07

Monday, August 25 by

Episode: "A Bomb in the Garden." I'm a little sad that our time with recon is over, even if the last episode didn't exactly hit me with a mortar shell of awesomeness. What happened?

Bonus Features: What To Watch This Weekend

Friday, August 22 by

Last weekend was sort of lame for new releases. This weekend has a shot at redemption with four possibilities. The tee-vee also holds a little magic in the world of shows we are currently enjoying. But do yourself a favor—if you have not seen the first few episodes, make a friend with On Demand.   IN THE THEATRE

Nicolas Cage and His Hair Sign On for Kick-Ass

Friday, August 22 by

Nicolas Cage's last venture into the land of comic movies was the epicly sucky Ghost Rider, so excuse me if I'm not super excited about the upcoming, Kick-Ass. It's the story of a high school kid who turns himself into some kind of super hero. His power seems to be the ability to pick the worst super hero name of all time.
