New DVD Tuesday
The year's first superhero film follows a slacker heir (Rogen) to a vast media empire who suddenly begins to take life (somewhat) seriously after the murder of his father. For all its faults, I quite enjoyed "Green Hornet", a sentiment almost nobody shares with me. I'm not much of a Rogen fan but I he did a good-enough job bridging the gap between stoner and unconventional superhero and there were some really funny moments throughout. Worth a rental, anyway.
The Dilemma (2011) - Vince Vaughn, Kevin James
A Chicago businessman (Vaughn) discovers that the wife of his best friend and business partner (James) is cheating on him. I guess the rest of the film revolves around the guy struggling over whether to tell his pal or not. Answer: yes, you tell your pal. Movie over.
Boy Meets World: Season Five (1997) - Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel, Rider Strong
Very, very few things in this world make me happier than BMW. It is THE defining TV show of my childhood (and maybe my life). I love it and I'm so glad Disney has gotten on board with FINALLY putting this show on DVD.
