The Latest on DVD: Go Spartans and More

The latest and greatest available on DVD this week:

New Releases:

  • 300- That is the number for DVD this week, and apparently they are releasing that many different versions of the homoerotic/homophobic (poe-tay-toe/pah-taa-tah) epic starring Gerard Butler and a bunch of well-oiled extras. And riding on its coattails:
  • The History Channel Presents Last Stand of the 300
  • Hot Fuzz- The buddy/cop comedy from the creators of Shaun of the Dead.
  • Starter for 10- Starring dreamy James McAvoy.
  • Pathfinder- Starring Lord of the Rings' Karl Urban.
  • Shooter- Starring Marky Mark.

The Classics Aisle:

Gay Films:

  • Get a Life- The tale of a gay guy's search for "a straight guy willing to turn gay just to be with him" (such demands).
  • Whole New Thing- A whole new take on the typical coming-of-age story.
  • Looking for Langston- Director Isaac Julien's provocative look at black gay icon, Langston Hughes.

TV on DVD:

Scary Stuff:

And Finally:

  • The Rhineman Exchange- Check out the cast for this mini-series from 1977: Lauren Hutton, John Huston, Roddy McDowell, José Ferrer, Larry Hagman, Stephen Collins, Claude Akins, Rene Auberjonois and Werner Klemperer. I have no idea if it is any good or not, but who cares?
