Buy, Borrow, and Burn...The Week in DVD's...

Hey guys! So, as I said in an earlier post, I am splitting up the weekend wrap up, into three separate posts. Well, now it's time to elaborate on what you all will be able to check out come this Tuesday, as these are the noteworthy DVD releases for this Thanksgiving Week...

BUY:

~Bottle Rocket~
The release date for this got moved back a couple of weeks, so I've already discussed this, but still, get out and give it a shot. It's Wes Anderson's best film.
~Chungking Express~
Wow, where to begin on this one. This is one of my favorite foreign films, and comes to us from the brilliant director, Wong Kar-wai, who has helmed such great films as In The Mood For Love, 2046, and this years solid little flick, My Blueberry Nights. This is about two heartsick cops played by Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung, both jilted by ex-lovers, that cross paths at the Midnight Express take-out restaurant stand, where the ethereal pixie waitress Faye, played by the beautiful Faye Wong, works. It's gorgeous, the acting is impeccable, and never has California Dreamin' been used so brilliantly.

BORROW:
~Hancock~
For those who haven't seen it-
It's a mix and match of Michael Bay action direction, and Turbografix 16 visual effects
For those who HAVE seen it-
Say the twist out loud for once, and then tell me it's still worth watching

BURN:
~Fred Claus~
Really? It's been about a full year for this film to get a DVD release, and it's not really needed. I never saw it, and I'm fine with keeping it that way...

~Meet Dave~
Eddie Murphy + 2008 + ridiculous premise + comedy = Epic Fail...it's simple math...

~Space Chimps~
In a world where there is Wall-E, there is no reason to see this film...


So, there you have it! Those are the note-able DVD's that you should either Buy, Borrow, or Burn...

Come back later for more news and notes!

Go see something good!
