I’m so burned out on Wall-E at this point that I don’t care. He’s a robot that cleans up dirt. He meets a girl IPOD and goes into outer space to save her. This leads fatties back to Earth. Fatties fight robots to regain independence. Andrew Stanton squeezes in the schmaltze that the original opening of Finding Nemo would’ve killed dead.

This is another flick that the marketing machine has made sure that I acknowledge this week. Sending me cans of Booty Sweat helps to speak kindly of this film. Hell, Tom Cruise acting like a prick helps as well. There’s also some Danny McBride goodness and Ben Stiller playing with Steve Coogan’s severed head. You could do a lot worse than giving this flick a shot.

d. Gerald Barclay

Special Features

– Interviews

– “Protect Ya Neck” music video

It debuted last year, but it’s finally coming to DVD. Watch the rise of all 36 Chambers, as we get to go back to a simpler time. A time when a mother fucker could pic up a mic and drop knowledge. A time when a Rap Supergroup was possible. They were Wu-Tang and they were nothing to fuck with.

A QUICK WORD ABOUT BLACK FRIDAY PART I of II

Last year, I was in line outside of Circuit City. Freezing cold, I vowed that I was never going to take part in Black Friday again. All I’ve got to say is…FUCK YOU BIG BOX STORES! I can’t pass up Dead Space or Boom Blox for around thirty bucks. I know that this is supposed to be a DVD column, but fuck that noise.

So, I’m going to add this precursor to next week’s Black Friday coverage. In the interest of not getting sued, I will forgo Ad Scans until next week. What I want to know is…what will your Black Friday plans be? Don’t give me any Cyber Monday bullshit. The shut-ins can stay out of this conversation. I want to hear from my fellow freezing dumbasses who will pound the pavement looking for deals and an excuse to smack an old man in the mouth over a copy of Aeon Flux on Blu-Ray.
