DVD Tuesday: Toupee Alert! Toupee Alert!
Nicolas Cage retains his title as the Enigma with this week's release of Knowing. I know I'm repeating myself, but has there been an actor in recent history who's made more mystifying choices? Rarely is an actor either brilliant or awful. Cage is always EXACTLY that. I first noticed Odette Yustman in a tiny cameo in Walk Hard. Yeah, she jumps off the screen like that. Too bad The Unborn is rote horror bilge. You know, the MST3K folks could probably make a very funny movie about Push. Dorky storyline? Check! Bad special effects? Check!

The back page is always reserved for DVDs that are more curios than actually worth buying. Still, Leelee Sobieski is always worth a look. As is Omar Epps. As is Chris Eigeman. As is Jeff Garlin. On the other hand -- who knew Todd Bridges was still acting? Title of the week goes to Evil Bong 2: King Bong. Having seen some of the "ladies" that go au natural at the Sturgis bike-off, I'm hesitant to recommend Exposing Sturgis. If you need nudity, go to the source -- GGW. If there's one thing Joe Francis does well, it's ruining young girls' lives.
