You know it's a slow day at the DVD counter when the highlight of the week is a Blu-Ray release of a fifteen year-old film. Sure Apollo 13 is a solid flick -- maybe even Ron Howard's best -- but the prospect of seeing it again doesn't particularly get my juices going. As a fan of Richard Curtis, I wish I could recommend Pirate Radio, but the comedy in it just seems a little forced and dated. Woody Harrelson is, of course, a demigod in my eyes so Defendor was required viewing when it originally hit theaters. Check it out.

I can't say the same for The Slammin' Salmon (awful title, by the way). Now I love me some Broken Lizard, but I am really starting to see the seams in their movies. Do a Super Troopers 2 already! The DVD cover of Front Man may be the worst I've seen in awhile. It looks like it was created using the insert picture function of Microsoft Word. And what is this movie even fucking about? The filmmakers should have taken a look at the cover of Bikefest Volume 4. I know exactly what that movie's about.
