DVD Tuesday

Not a whole lot of good will brought into the DVD universe today but have a look at the bag of nothing nonetheless.

New Releases -

Leap Year (2010): Amy Adams, Matthew Goode - Something about some girl going to Ireland to get the inspiration to ask her boyfriend to marry her. Both Adams and Goode have been riding pretty high lately and you have to believe both of them hoped this thing would never see the light of day.

Tooth Fairy (2010): The Rock, Ashley Judd, others who should know better - The Rock is a hockey player who gets turned into a Tooth Fairy. And it's funny because, you know, The Rock is all manly and they're calling him a fairy AND hockey players often lose their teeth, haha. Boo. And no, I will not call The Rock Dwayne Johnson no matter how hard he tries to make that switch.

Nine (2009): Daniel Day Lewis, Judi Dench, Penelope Cruz - A musical that not even critics could completely grasp the plot of. I love Lewis, but this was a tremendous disappointment last year.

New to Blu Ray -

Saving Private Ryan (1998): Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Barry Pepper - The best war movie of the last 30 years, easily one of my ten favorite films of all time, and Pepper plays one of my ten favorite characters of all time. Every single haunting moment of this film is magnificient. It is an absolute masterpiece.

The Notebook (2004): Rachel McAdams, Ryan Gosling - Perhaps a bit overrated in my opinion but still one of the better romances of the decade. My ridiculous cruch on Rachel McAdams probably doesn't hurt this opinion, however.
