True Blood - HBO - Not Rated
The fifth Season of the HBO series True Blood comes to home video with more Vampire bites and loads of skin. The set includes 12 episodes along with commentaries, interviews, loads of featurettes and more.
National Lampoon's Vacation - Warner Brothers - Rated R
It's been 30 years since the Griswolds made that trip to Wally World, and now you can experience it all again on blu-ray. National Lampoon's Vacation is still as funny as it was all those years ago. Extras include a feature length documentary commentary and more.
National Lampoon's Vegas Vacation - Warner Brothers - Rated PG
1997's Vegas Vacation, the fourth in the series has it's share of laughs, and also appears on blu-ray for the first time, but minus any bonus features.
Parker - Sony - Rated R
Parker features bad acting and an unimaginative, forgettable plot that gets boring and includes the unlikely pairing of Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez. J-lo strips to her skivvies. She is 40 and her booty ain't so 'licious any more. Commentary and two featurettes. The blu-ray adds two featurettes.
Howl's Moving Castle / My Neighbor Totoro - Disney - Rated PG / G
Two of Hayao Mayazaki's animated classics come to blu-ray for the first time and look spectacular. Howl's Moving Castle, and My Neighbor Totoro each feature delightful animation, imaginative stories and multiple featurettes.
Stand Up Guys - Lionsgate - Rated R
Seeing Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin together in one film out to be magic. Stand Up Guys does that, but isn't. It's somewhat entertaining, due mostly to the three stars, but is a fairly run of the mill crime caper. Extras include commentary, deleted scenes and three featurettes.
