  • Beautiful Wave coming of age/surfing film starring Aimee Teegarden, Patricia Richardson, Ben Milliken and Lance Henriksen; I quite enjoyed this one as it had a nice balance of finding your own way vibe along with dealing with an emotional past.
  • Underworld Awakening (DVD Review) Fourth film in the Underworld series starring Kate Beckinsale as the vampire warrior Selene and this time it's set in a near future world where the humans have become aware of vampires and werewolves. I quite enjoyed it as it's action packed, stays true to the lore but takes on a new feel but still the cool blue/silver/black look of the series.
  • Underworld: The Legacy Collection (4 Discs) Bilingual - Blu-ray all four Underworld films in one hand package - a great way to enjoy the series from the original Underworld all the way up to the most recent Underworld Awakening.
  • UFC 143: Diaz vs Condit Interim Welterweight Championship on a 2 Disc Special Edition.
  • The Vow the drama/romance is based on a true story of a woman who loses her memory and her husband who sticks by her; stars Rachel McAdams & Channing Tatum
  • Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie starring & directed by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim; I've never quite got a handle on just what exactly this comedy is about, save for the very clear descriptive title.
  • Mother's Day Horror film just in time for Mother's Day although I'm not sure it's to everyone mom's taste unless they go for hell bend sadistic revenge on home town returns - but to each their own! Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (Repo! The Genetic Opera, Saw II, III, IV) and stars Rebecca De Mornay, Jaime King and Shawn Ashmore.
  • Madison County More horror goodness here and I'm curiuos about this one with a group of college kids who head to small town to interview and author; however can't seem to find him. It's a wild card pick, but it's got me curious.
  • More wildcards this week including Playback starring Christian Slater, Ambyr Childers, Toby Hemingway and Reality of Love / Le Gentleman Célibataire starring Bradley Cooper, Jason Priestley and Emma Caulfield.
  • If you are gearing up for Prometheus (the Alien prequel) hitting theatres in just over a month you are in luck as Alien, Aliens, Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection are all being released on Blu Ray (Amazon.ca only). I gotta get me a BluRay player!
  • Chuck: The Fifth and Final Season I never quite got into this spy/tech show but I think that's only because there seems to be a comedy element; perhaps now that it's complete I will give it another look.
