September's DVD Reviews
What graced my dvd player this month?
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.
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).
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,
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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."
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
is going anywhere.
PICK(S) OF THE
Tie. Me and You and Everyone
We Know and Battlestar Galactica (Yes, again).
