The last DVD Tuesday of the decade!
At least 2009 goes out in style, giving us a few DVD goodies to send it off with. From best to worst, here are this week's notable releases. 9 is an excellent little animated post-apocalyptic flick, that you need to see. Keep in mind that it might give the kids nightmares though before letting them watch it, which I totally support, so give it a go! Paranormal Activity may be the highest profile horror release of the year thanks to its genius marketing strategy. Though it may not be the scariest thing you've ever seen (as its been billed), it's definitely creepy and worth a watch. Alone, and in the dark of course. Carriers was another fun little post-apocalyptic movie, that was better than I expected it to be. Plus, I really like the hot chick from Everwood, so it was destined to be a movie that I liked. Vampire Killers aka Lesbian Vampire Killers... Why the title change? Seriously America, are we to the point where a frigging movie title is going to get people to whine and picket? It's a dumb horror comedy that involves lesbian vampires being killed, so can't we just call it what it is? Geesh. Jennifer's Body sucked for the most part, save for the slick texture of it all, and the hot chicks making out with each other, and you can thank Devil Coby for said suckage. Watch it on mute, and you may actually enjoy it. And finally we have A Perfect Getaway, which underwhelmed me, but wasn't all that bad. Confusing, I know. Rent it maybe, but don't expect much. So until 2010, see you in 2010! That didn't make much sense, but you get the gist.
