It’s Tuesday, December 14th and it’s time for the DVD/Blu-Ray Tuesday Roundup! Some decent titles coming out today, including: Despicable Me, 24: The Complete Eighth Season, The A-Team, The Town, The Other Guys, Legend of the Guardians-Owls of Ga’hoole, Straight to Hell Returns, Cyrus, It Crowd: Complete Fourth Season and more! Each week I’ll list the latest DVD/Blu-Ray 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!

Here are the DVD/Blu-Ray releases of the week:

Despicable Me (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)

I’ve been seeing previews for Despicable Me for over 2 years now and still have no idea on what it’s about. The movie has been getting good reviews so it’s probably worth checking out.

24: The Complete Eighth Season

I tried to watch this season of 24 and I just lost total interest. I’ve been a fan of 24 since the first year or so it was on the air and I just had enough. There’s only so much you can do with one character saving the day every season. I will probably continue to watch this on video just to see how it ends, even though I read what happens. At least Kim didn’t get stuck in the mountains with leopards.

The A-Team (+ Digital Copy) [Blu-ray]

I’m not sure I’ll like The A-Team. The scene where Bradley Cooper pops out in the air in the tank just looks retarded. I wish action thrillers would stick with the Bourne movies approach and keep it realistic as possible. But I don’t know, maybe I will like this one after I see it.

The Town (Extended Cut Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)

Ben Affleck in a good movie? I wonder if hell froze over. No seriously, this looks pretty good and has been getting Oscar buzz as well. This is an extended cut of the movie, but not sure what was added into it since I haven’t seen the Town yet.

The Other Guys (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)

The Other Guys looks hilarious! People who don’t find Will Ferrell will probably hate this but I liked the majority of his movies. It’s also cool to finally see Mark Wahlberg doing comedy, even though his rap career was considered a comedy act. I’m joking Mark, and “say hi to your Mother for me…”

Legend of the Guardians-Owls of Ga’hoole (Three-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD / Digital Copy)

How can owls be entertaining? They sleep in barns and eat rats all night.

Army Wives: Complete Fourth Season

Ah, I remember the days when Catherine Belle did softcore. Those were the days…

True Grit [Blu-ray]

See the original movie before you see the Coen Bros remake starring Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon.

It Crowd: Complete Fourth Season

I watched most of this season on IFC. Some episodes were pretty good but felt this was the weakest season. I think I need to re-watch the episodes though, I might feel differently. I just wish Jen would leave the show already…

24: The Complete Series

Watch the entire season straight through. I dare you! DAMMIT!

Nanny McPhee Returns [Blu-ray]

When did Nanny McPhee arrive in the first place?


This was supposed to be decent and funny. I might check it out eventually but doesn’t seem like a movie I’d rush out to watch.

The Brian Setzer Orchestra – It’s Gonna Rock ‘Cause That’s What I Do [Blu-ray]

Brian Setzer Orchestra is always a good time.

Straight to Hell Returns

See Joe Strummer, Courtney Love and The Pogues try to act!

Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus / Mega Piranha

If these movies aren’t nominated for Oscars, clearly the Academy doesn’t KNOW movies!
