The DVD releases are starting to get quite good,
again. The next few weeks will be very nice.

First, the genre releases:

Now, the non-genre releases:

Finally, the pick of the week. Waydowntown
is a
highly unusual Canadian comedy. This story, set and
filmed in
downtown Calgary, is about four office workers who
have a bizarre bet
going. The cast includes Fab Fillippo, whom you might
recognize as
Scott Hope from the third season of Buffy the
Vampire Slayer
as well as Canadian comedic film mainstay Don
McKellar. I don’t want
to give away too much of the plot, but I will say that
the characters
here make the characters in Office Space look
normal. This
is actually the second DVD release of this title. The
first release
may only have been available in Canada. It was also a
pan and scan
edition, which makes this a welcome upgrade for those
of us who own
the previous edition.
