DVD Tuesday: Happy New Year!

We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

It's a pretty slow week for quality DVD releases. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was targeted at children but will almost certainly find its true home amongst serious drug users. LSD + food falling from the sky = tripping balls. Does anyone really think that The Final Destination will really be the last film of the series? I know it won't happen, but I think it would be awesome if the next one was called Double Final Destination. I don't know why. I just do. In some circles (admittedly, very quiet ones), Michelle Monaghan is getting Oscar buzz for her role in Trucker. Check it out. I don't ordinarily trumpet new Blu-Ray releases, but Riding Giants seems perfectly tailored to 1080P joy. Is Greg Noll the coolest son of a bitch on the planet? Yep!
