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!
