THE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17th, 2009



STAR TREK (2009)

Special Features

  • Deleted Scenes
  • Featurettes
  • Commentary
  • Gag Reel
  • and more!


Star Trek
is a great summer movie. Sure, it’s got plotholes so big that entire featurettes are dedicated to them. But, it works as an emotional connect that doesn’t require much of the audience to use their brain. We need these Wicker Films to allow for smaller films to seep into the consciousness. Also, it helps to get Simon Pegg’s face in front of Middle America.




BRUNO

Special Features

  • Commentary
  • Featurettes
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Interviews

Bruno tried to be great. Everyone was riding that Post-Bruno buzz and trying to see if the latest in reality cinema could top the Kazakh reporter. What happened was a compromised film that ran too short and with too many flat jokes. For ever CG urethra screaming at a focus group, you had a Psychic session that went on too long. Hell, the only moment that really felt genuine was Harrison Ford telling the energetic Austrian to fuck off.


IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA: A VERY SUNNY CHRISTMAS

Special Features

  • Featurettes
  • Sunny Sing-Along
  • Deleted Scenes


It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: A Very Sunny Christmas is one of the best episode of the series. If you want to see it, then shell out the extra cash for this uncensored special. Nearly triple the runtime of a normal episode, this Christmas special comes at you fully uncensored. You’ll see how Frank made his fortune. You’ll see the young Mac and Charlie go apeshit on Santa. You’ll see more shit that I don’t want to spoil for you.

OBSESSIVE DVD NERDS, I BESEECH YOU!
