Yesterday we had a couple new DVD/Blu-Ray releases. Included in the mix was the family comedy Marmaduke, the comedy Made for Each Other, OSS 177: Lost in Rio, and Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too.

Marmaduke
Stars Lee Pace and Judy Greer with he voices of Owen Wilson, Emma Stone, George Lopez, Kiefer Sutherland, Sam Elliott and countless others. Based on the comic strip of the same name, the movie features the beloved Great Dane as he moves into a new neighborhood with his family and accidentally wrecks havoc with his misadventures.

Made for Each Other
I’ve never even heard of this one, but it stars Patrick Warburton, Danny and Christopher Masterson, Bijou Phillips, and George Segal. After 3 months of a sexless marriage, Dan (Christopher Masterson) cheats on his wife. Racked with guilt, he becomes determined to even the odds by getting her to cheat on him, so he sets out to find the perfect man for the job. Sounds like it could be fun.

OSS 177: Lost in Rio
In this adventure comedy, Jean Dujardin stars as French superspy OSS 117 as he tracks down a former high-ranking Nazi in 1967 Rio de Janeiro. This is the 9th movie to feature the character of OSS 117.

Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too
The sequel to Tyler Perry’s 2007 romantic comedy, the flick stars Janet Jackson, Michael Jai White, Jill Scott, Richard T. Jones, Louis Gossett Jr and of course Tyler Perry himself.

Last Tuesday we also got a bunch of new releases, including George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead, City Island, The Back-Up Plan, and The Square. What will you be buying?

Happy Holidays everyone! We’ll keep updating through New Years, just at a bit of a slower rate (as we have been this past week). Thanks for checking out the site!

  • Owen Wilson provides the voice for the newspaper comic strip dog turned movie Marmaduke. Sadly, his voice and the opening shot makes me think its Marley and Me 2. Click here to give it a look. Did anyone know they were making the dog talk?
  • After 23 years Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins have split up. What? Seriously? I guess no Hollywood couples are safe, no matter how long they’ve been together or how happy they seem.  On a side note, Sarandon is wonderful in The Lovely Bones. She deserves some Oscar supporting actress love.
  • Warner Brothers have released a synopsis for their DC Comics adaptation of the Losers.  “An explosive tale of double cross and revenge, The Losers centers upon the members of an elite U.S. Special Forces unit sent into the Bolivian jungle on a search and destroy mission. The team — Clay, Jensen, Roque, Pooch and Cougar — find themselves the target of a lethal betrayal instigated from inside by a powerful enemy known only as Max. Presumed dead, the group makes plans to even the score when they’re joined by the mysterious Aisha, a beautiful operative with her own agenda. Working together, they must remain deep undercover while tracking the heavily-guarded Max, a ruthless man bent on embroiling the world in a new high-tech global war.”
  • There are a lot of movies opening this weekend! For the older crowd we have Maryl Streep and Alec Baldwin in It’s Complicated.  For the kiddies there is Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.  For the ladies there is the musical Nine. For the guys there is the action re-invention of Sherlock Holmes from Guy Ritchie. And for both kinds of adults we have Up in the Air with George Clooney expanding, and Heath Ledger’s final film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.
