DVD’s I Bought This Week – February 26, 2008

A wise man once said “It’s not just about seeing Star Wars two weeks before everyone else. You’ve gotta plow through crap like Marie Antoinette and Catwoman as well.” I have the fortune of being able to see all of the films that I want, and find out that they are only worth one viewing (or less) before I would willingly pay for the DVD…and subsequently end up hating myself later. But for every The Whoopee Boys there has to be an Indiana Jones, and because of the great films I am able to put myself further in debt every week.

DVD’s I Bought – Week of February 26th

30 Days of Night
One of my favorite guilty pleasures of the year, and the best horror film in a long time. From director David Slade and written by Steve Niles, 30 Days of Night is a must buy. Steve is a friend of the site, so it is kind of a must buy anyways.
Beowulf
To attest for how good the CGI in this film was, I have a friend who said “I don’t like how they styled Beowulf, trying to make everyone look all computer generated.” It’s so good that I wont be watching Gia or the un-rated edition of Original Sin quite as often as I used to.
The Darjeeling Limited
I couldn’t stay away from this one, partly due to my mancrush on Wes Anderson but also due to the fact that I thought it was one of the top ten of 2007.
Justice League: The New Frontier
Best Buy has an edition of this with a free Green Hornet figure. The Justice League is easily the best way to see all of your favorite DC heroes in one place.

DVD’s I Rented – Week of February 26th

Slipstream
Anthony Hopkins gives us his directorial debut with Slipstream. Some people will compare this to David Lynch, which is easy because it has two qualities going for it: weird, and good.
