Valentine’s Day approaches, and we can see the
difference in the available DVD releases. There are
loads of rereleases of romantic-type stuff for
Tuesday, February 8, 2005.

First, the genre releases:

Now, the non-genre releases:

Finally, the pick of the week. This was a tough
week; there are a lot
of releases, but most of them are rereleases of
romantic titles with
Valentine’s Day just around the corner. We’ve also
got a few of this
year’s Oscar nominees being rereleased to try and
drum up interest.
Still, of the new titles coming out, I can say that
Field
Of Dreams –
15th Anniversary Widescreen Edition
is probably a
good choice.
Made in a time when Costner’s ego could actually fit
on the big
screen, this movie tells a good story that feels
romantic without the
standard plot trapping of a romantic comedy.
Costner’s trend to long
films is somewhat present, with a 106 minute film
based on a short
story that took up ten pages of my High School
English text, but this
one doesn’t seem to drag like his other films. Also,
suggesting this
before Valentine’s Day may score you some brownie
points that’ll help
when you come home with the final season of
Angel on February
15.
