Here’s what is getting released today on DVD:

Film:

Date Movie (Unrated Edition) – Just like the Scary Movie films before it, a spoof of romantic comedies full of satire and gross out humor.

Freedomland – Here is what our very own Alan Rapp had to say about Freedomland. “Sometimes a movie is so awful you need a shower to get clean.  Freedomland is just such a movie.  One of the worst films of 2006 and the most vile and disheartening films I’ve seen in quite some time.  I still can’t believe I saw what I saw or that parents with small children allowed them to view this violent, distasteful, and heartless film.  Whatever you do this weekend keep you and yours out of Freedomland.”  Read the full diagnosis.

Special Editions:

Platoon – 20th Anniversary Collector’s Edition – It’s like the best gift ever, it’s Platoon, undoubtedly the best war film ever made and it’s got all kind of extras like a documentary and newly added commentary with Oliver Stone and Captain Daly Dye Military Supervisor. Plus there is the Original Theatrical Trailer and a gallery.

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (Two-Disc Special Edition) -Sweet, finally they have released one of the most creepiest and scariest movies of all time. Bette Davis and Joan Crawford play sisters, one was famous in her youth, but looses it in her older age. She is forced to take care of her crippled sister and starts to completely loose her mind. She leaves her helpless sister upstairs without food or water for days at a time, while she dresses up in little girl outfits and tries to be the star again. Yes, it’s a creepy one for sure, but a classic.

Family/Animated:

Alf: Season Three – The “Alien Life Form” better known as ALF started corrupting our TV screens in 1986, a ugly warted creature who spends most of the show mouthing off and chasing after the family cat. Funny at times, for the 80’s that is, but only holds little to no humor today.

TV:

Numb3rs – The Complete First Season – A mixture of popular crime dramas found on TV today, Numb3rs uses mathematical equations to solve crime. Starring Rob Morrow (Northern Exposure) and David Krumholz (10 Things I Hate About You).

The Dukes of Hazzard – The Complete Sixth Season – It’s the good ole’ boys, hell yes. Nothing better than the General Lee and some good-looking country boys running from the law. For the boys, let us not forget about those Daisy Dukes. Season six still has Bo and Luke and not those nasty little replacements, the cousins.

Queer as Folk – The Final (Fifth) Season
