September's DVD Reviews
What graced my dvd player this month?  Let's see...

Me and You and Everyone We Know, 2005
This movie rawks.  It's like each scene is a cryptic little fortune cookie that says something profound in the most understated way.  I watched this whole film a second time this month (I first saw it a couple months earlier).  If you know me, that's the highest praise I can give a movie: Watching it a second time.  I don't even have to attach any qualifiers to this; Me and you and everyone we know would love this movie.

Monk: Season 4: Disc 2, 2005
This show is such a throwback to a time before tv detectives knew how to sequence DNA.  Yet somehow it works (although I still miss Sharona from the first couple seasons).

The Sopranos: Season 4: Disc 1, 2002
I left off watching this a few years ago back when Season 3 had just been released on dvd.  I'm not sure why I keep following the adventures of Tony getting his morning paper from his driveway and cursing out people who are going to get whacked a few episodes from now, but I can't let go of this sieries.

Cube 2: Hypercube, 2002
The first film is pretty good and collected a pretty decent cult following when it came out.  This sequel deepens and broadens the mythology.  Sure, it's kind of low budget, but I liked it.  The third (and final?) one will be added to my queue in a few months.

Battlestar Galactica: Season 2.5: Disc 1, 2004
BEST SHOW ON TV.  PERIOD.  I'm not even going to bother to explain myself because if you don't go out and start watching this series from the beginning, it's your fucking loss.

Six Feet Under: Season 4: Disc 5, 2004
Only one more season to go.  I'll miss it when I'm finished with the series in another few discs.  I'm going to take a break from it and watch a few other shows for a for a while though, just to prolong it.

Death Becomes Her, 1992
I like Zemeckis (or however you spell his name), but this was just dumb.  It's worth watching only for the nascent digital special effects and a semi-nude Isabella Rosalini.

The Sopranos: Season 4: Disc 2, 2002
I still have no idea why I like this show.  In fact, sometimes I'm not sure I do, but I have a crush on Carmella.

Alias: Season 2: Disc 1, 2002
This show is simultaneously predictable and not.  The formula is to introduce plot twists, so even though it's a formula, I pretty much stay interested.  Oh, and I have a crush on Jennifer Garner.

Hellraiser: Hellworld, 2005
Cheesy horror flick.  This one wasn't worth it except for the fact that Pinhead the Chatterer Cenobite show up in it for a bit.

Grizzly Man, 2003
The impressions and parodies of this guy don't begin to immunize you from sitting there and watching this slack-jawed.  Throughout the entire film, Dani and I constantly turned to one another and said, "Is this guy for real?!"  You don't know whether to laugh or cry at the deafening sound of your irony detector going off.

Alias: Season 2: Disc 2, 2002
Some of her disguises are pretty hot, you gotta admit.  But the best part of the show is the gadget guy.  Seriously, he's a scene-stealer.

Deathsport, 1978
More cheese.  This was a Roger Corman produced sci-fi post-apocalyptic Conan-meets-Star Wars rip-off with David Caradine and a former Playboy Playmate.  It was everything you would expect from the description.

Monk: Season 4: Disc 3, 2005
If you ever want to know what it's like to deal with me from Dani's perspective, put yourself in Natalie's head as you watch this.

Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 5: Disc 1, 2005
Here's another show about me.  No, I'm not being narcissistic.  I only know this because every time Larry David does or says anything, Dani pokes me in my side, points to the screen, and says, "That's you."

The Sopranos: Season 4: Disc 3, 2002
I like that I have no idea where this series is going.  The only problem is that I don't know if it actually is going anywhere.

Tie.  Me and You and Everyone We Know and Battlestar Galactica (Yes, again).
