This Week in DVD
by Nicholas Robinson
(500) Days of Summer
Reason: I saw this movie in theatres and it just blew my mind! This movie was so amazing. Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon Levitt were perfect. It is a must buy for anyone who loves to laugh and/or cry (not necessarily at the same time) during this movie
Reason: When I watched this movie in theatres, I was once again blown away. The visuals, story and acting were amazing. It brought a whole new spin on the apartheid in South Africa and did it with action, some comedy and some form of romance.
Taxi – The Complete Series
Reason: In its day, Taxi was the greatest sitcom ever. In fact, if it weren’t for the Cosby Show and Seinfeld, it would hold that title still. Anyone who loves Danny DeVito and knows how to laugh needs to buy this.
Reason: I have heard good things about this movie, but I have also heard bad things about it. I have not had the opportunity to see this myself so I cannot vouch for either of those view. My advice to you is: check it out yourself without commiting. Give it a rent.
Family Guy Presents – Something Something Something Dark Side
Reason: Family Guy is one of the funniest sitcoms running on television today. Whenever I watch it I end up on the floor and in tears and pain from laughing so hard. However, it is not necessarily one of those shows where you can watch episodes over and over again which is why it is only a rent.
It Might Get Loud
Reason: Once again, I have heard good and bad things about this movie and have not had the opportunity to watch it so I say check it out for yourself and give it a rent.
Don’t Touch With A 10ft Pole
All About Steve
Reason: I have always thought Bradley Cooper to be a good actor, but when I saw this trailer I said to myself “Dear God, what has he done???” This movie looks utterly terrible. If you see it in a shopping window, just walk away and don’t even think of buying/renting it. However, if you like movies like I Love You, Beth Cooper, go right ahead and rot your brain with bad movies like this one.
American Pie – The Book Of Love
Reason: The first one was good, but like most franchises and series, this has gone on way too long and needs to be amputated like a leg with an infectious bite from a zombie. But once again, if you like movies like I Love You, Beth Cooper, go right ahead and rot your brain with bad movies like this one.
Kyle XY – Season 3
Reason: Another crappy ABC family show has come to destroy our Christmas with another DVD release of its 3rd season. This show looks horrible like most other ABC family shows that people rot their brains with. However, if you like to watch vampires glitter in sunlight with their shirts off, then go right ahead.
Secret Life of an American Teenager – Season 3
Reason: Once again, a crappy ABC family show has come to ruin Christmas. This show looks horrible. However, if you’re a teenage girl who reads Gossip Girl, then once again, go right ahead.
