Up (4 Disc Combo Pack with Digital Copy and DVD) [Blu-ray]
One of the best movies of the year! Pixar has done it again; that should just be added to the lexicon dictionary.
Star Trek (Three-Disc +Digital Copy) [Blu-ray]
I wasn’t a Star Trek fan, but now I am after seeing this movie. If you don’t own this already, this would be perfect for the holidays.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy & BD-Live) [Blu-ray]
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was an excellent adaptation of the book. Of course some things were left out from the book but overall, I really liked this movie! Obviously this would be ideal for HP fans.
Angels & Demons (Two-Disc Extended Edition)
Not as good as Da Vinci Code I think, but still worth owning or buying for someone who’s into this sort of stuff.
Inglourious Basterds (Two-Disc Special Edition)
Can’t find a better Holiday present than a movie about Killing Hitler and Nazis!
Want to see a bad movie? (And I mean REALLY BAD movie) Than Laser Mission (or how the credits show: “Aser Missio”) would be a great gag gift for people that like awful movies.
Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter [Blu-ray]
People looking for a new Christmas movie…look no further than Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter! Also available on DVD!
You can’t have the real Edward ladies. Its not gonna happen. But you teenagers and creepy mothers can now “play” with your very own Edward Cullen Barbie doll.

“I do not like the cone of shame.”

Good live album from the eccentric Tom Waits. I just wish the selection of songs were better.
Frank Turner – Poetry of the Deed
I just got into Frank Turner’s music this year but he has quickly skyrocketed amongst the best musicians out there right now. I also recommend checking out his album from 2008 called Love Ire and Song

A new Bosstones album!? Now that’s a holiday gift!
Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music Director’s Cut (40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition

Kaiser Chiefs rock and so does this DVD
I like Keane but never saw them live. Who knows if this DVD is any good or not.

Cool documentary about the ska band Mustard Plug. Plus has some music videos and live footage!

Seeing Paul Giamatti as John Adams in a sex scene was a bit disgusting but other than that, this mini-series is fantastic! I wish we could get a mini-series on each president..well except the last one we had.
The Unit: The Complete Giftset
I’ve already praised this show enough, but might as well do it again. An excellent TV series that didn’t get picked up for a new season this year (lame!). But the 4 seasons were awesome and offered something fresh each episode.
Lost: The Complete Fifth Season
Freakin’ awesome series with lots of cool extras as well. Only 1 more season to go and then our lives will feel very empty.

The complete collection of Monty Python episodes is now only 60 dollars! I paid over 100 bucks for this stuff a few years ago. So jump at the chance of getting this now.
Monty Python: Almost The Truth
This 6 part documentary is extensive, very funny and very informative about Monty Python. It aired on IFC in October but now you can own it on DVD and Blu-Ray. 6 hours later, I still feel like I don’t know the comedy troupe that well.
Family Guy Presents: Something Something Something Dark Side
Just in time for Xmas is the newest Family Guy spoof on Star Wars, this time they spoof Empire Strikes Back! I hope they make fun of Luke and Leia kissing, since they are brother and sister after all.
The show has violence, great acting, nudity and sex, what’s not to love?!

The latest season of IT Crowd was hysterical, but be sure to get the first two seasons as well!

Futurama is coming out with even more new episodes but at least this collection will hold you over until more come out.
Coupling – The Complete Seasons 1-4
One of my favorite TV shows!

Adding Zombies will make any book better. I can’t wait for the Bernstein Bears Visit Zombieland edition.
MacKenzie Phillips High On Arrival
Learn about Mackenzie’s creepy, disgusting love affair with her Father John Phillips (of Mamas and the Papas). I bet things will be awkward at their next Holiday dinner hahaha.

The last book from Michael Crichton, and it’s about pirates! Sweet!
