DVD Tuesday Roundup (November 3rd 2009)

DVD Reviews | By on Nov 3rd, 2009

Here’s the DVD Tuesday Roundup for November 3rd 2009! Some releases coming out today include a bunch of Xmas movies, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, Eddie Izzard stand-up, I Love You Beth Cooper and others! Each week I’ll list the latest DVD releases and point out the ones worth buying. I can’t review everything I get so this serves as a nice guide for what’s coming out each week. Plus, it’s just fun making fun of movies and TV shows. Each DVD title links to Amazon.com, where you can purchase the DVD(s).

Here are the DVD releases of the week:

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (Two-Disc Edition + Digital Copy) [Blu-ray]

G.I. Joe looked pretty damn cheesy and looked like a mess. I’m sure it’s got some enjoyable things in it but I have a feeling this isn’t very good. I wouldn’t know, wasn’t sent to me for review (yet)..Anyone out there see it?

Star Wars The Clone Wars: The Complete Season One (TV Series)

Not a fan of the animated Star Wars stuff so far. I’m hoping the live TV series will be better, whenever that comes out.

The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

This seems like a typical Tony Scott film. It also seems like a generic role for Denzel and Travolta as well…but maybe it’s worth seeing?

North by Northwest (50th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Book) [Blu-ray]

I still haven’t seen this classic. I guess I should start watching Hitchcock movies?

Walt Disney Treasures: Zorro – The Complete First Season

Walt Disney Treasures are always rare and great collectibles too! The only Treasures being released this month are 2 seasons of Zorro. It’s kind of disappointing that there aren’t any animated shorts or cartoons being released instead of this. Zorro fans must be happy though.

It’s a Wonderful Life [Blu-ray]

Believe it or not, out of all the Christmas movies I’ve seen; I still haven’t seen this one. I’ll try to make an effort to see it this holiday season.

Aliens in the Attic

A prime example of movies coming out on DVD 1 month after it was released in theaters. I still don’t think people will care to see this.

Forrest Gump [Blu-ray]

Shrimp salad, shrimp stew, shrimp potato salad, shrimp burger, shrimp pasta, shrimp peanut butter and jelly sandwich, shrimp…

Eddie Izzard: Live from Wembley

Eddie Izzard is always funny in his stand-up specials. Only thing is if you’re not paying attention or know what he’s talking about; you might get lost.

A Christmas Carol [Blu-ray]

Another Xmas classic I haven’t seen.

Fraggle Rock: The Complete Final Season

“Oh look, a fraggle!”

Love Actually [Blu-ray]

A guilty pleasure rom com Xmas movie.


White Christmas (Anniversary Edition)

I guess all the Christmas classics are being released this week?

I Love You, Beth Cooper

I hated seeing this trailer over and over this summer. Is this any good?

G.I. Joe A Real American Hero: Season 1.2

The re-releasing of G.I. Joe continues with the second part of season 1. YO JOE!

Spin City: Season Three

A funny show that I would love to watch more but don’t know when it airs.

The Shield: Complete Series

This would be an awesome gift to give someone for the holidays! The last season’s finale still leaves a mark in my brain.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (Ultimate Collector’s Edition) [Blu-ray]

How many times are they going to re-release this movie? This time it comes with a Santa hat. Gimme a fucking break, holy shit where’s the Tylenol!?

Will Ferrell: You’re Welcome, America. A Final Night with George W. Bush

I loved Will Ferrell’s Bush impersonations but felt this Broadway show premiered a little too late.

Say Anything [Blu-ray]

Next year, are they going to re-release the Blu-Ray disc with a boombox and call it the ultimate edition?

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Live

Lots of induction ceremony performances. Rock!
