THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22ND, 2009



30 ROCK: SEASON 3

Special Features

  • Bloopers
  • Featurettes
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Commentaries
  • and more!


30 Rock: Season 3 is more of the same comedy goodness that you’ve come to expect. Sure, it does shit ratings. But, it’s not to say the snobbery of the E-masses come forth, as they pretend they are some united force keeping the show on the air. Hell, there’s Tina Fey going out of her way to be this generation’s twisted version of Mary Tyler Moore. What matters is that you have the show that introduced the Werewolf Bar Mitzvah to the people. You have Kenneth the Page doing his best Bobby Jindal impression week after week. Hell, you’ve got Salma Hayek’s epic cleavage in a couple of episodes. Keep an eye out for Tina Fey on the can, but stay for the Latina love bumps.




OBSERVE AND REPORT

Special Features

  • Featurettes
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Commentary

Observe and Report has been the funniest movie of the year for me. I don’t want to give anything away, but it involves a shooting. Just the timing of how it played out has only allowed Jody Hill to rise in my cine-geek Hall of Fame. Much like 30 Rock, this film is made and broken by its supporting cast. Great turns from Michael Pena, Aziz Ansari and Patton Oswalt help to shape what has to be the best dark comedy of the year. Sorry, Bobcat.


THE HAUNTED WORLD OF EL SUPERBEASTO

Special Features

  • Featurettes
  • Deleted Scenes


The Haunted World of El Superbeasto
began life as a stand-alone
graphic novel from Image Comics. The comic promoted the eventual
arrival of the film that had been promised since “The Devil’s Rejects”
was leaving theaters. Life went on and people found different projects. The DVD/Blu-Ray is finally streeting this week. Get ready for rampant horror references, plus tits. Dear lord, the tits in this thing.
