THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 29th, 2009



AWAY WE GO

Special Features

  • Commentary
  • Featurettes


Away We Go
is the hipster generation’s attempt at trying to put a grand meaning behind what could’ve passed for Albert Brooks’ B-material. That’s not to say that this is a bad film. Hell, I love the chemistry between Rudolph and Krasinski. See that, kids! I stopped calling him tall Big Bird looking motherfucker from The Office. I’ve grown, just like the characters in this movie on their journey to parenthood. If you’d like some of that warm feeling deep in your bowels, then rent this flick.




LABYRINTH

Special Features

  • Featurettes
  • PiP track
  • Commentary

Labyrinth has been used as Goth girl Spanish fly by lowly nerd boys for nearly two decades now. Now, you can watch it with a Goth Lolita that you’re trying to poke. Thrill to the artistry of Brian Froud, Jim Henson and George Lucas coming together in 1080 pristine quality. Throw on a brand new Picture in Picture track where the key creators talk about the production of the film. The sunlight challenged ladies can woo to David Bowie’s gyrating crotch amid a bounty of Goblin muppets.


MONSTERS VS. ALIENS

Special Features

  • Featurettes
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Karaoke Music Videos


Monsters vs. Aliens
is what happens when the lesser Dreamworks Animation tries to ape Pixar. For every great moment that you get with the monsters, the Colbert character has to jam in a pop culture reference. Hugh Laurie shines as Dr. Cockroach, marking a vast departure from his role on House. The departure being that he’s a CG cockroach, vying for screentime against the likes of Seth Rogen and Will Arnett. Children will delight to such scenarios and enjoy the choice placement of a classic Journey song dropped into the adventure.


OBSESSIVE DVD NERDS, I BESEECH YOU!
