Your Mid-Week Guide To DVD And Streaming: Piranha DD Does Not Get The Dove Foundation’s Seal Of Approval

By: 09.04.12  •  12 Comments

Rest in peace, Michael Clarke Duncan.

Calm down, I know the difference between Ving Rhames and the recently departed Michael Clarke Duncan.  This week we’ve got Piranha DD (and no, that’s not a typo), films from everybody’s favorite Jasons: Segel and Statham, flicks starring Adrien Brody, James Caan, Michael Madsen, and Tom Berenger, and even a movie with vampires.  What’s more, a string of Christian-themed DVDs brings us to the fascinating world of the Dove Foundation.  There’s even some lesbians and a girl in a wheelchair!

The DVDs:
Piranha DD
The Five-Year Engagement
High School
Woman Thou Art Loosed: On The 7th Day
For The Love Of Money
Amsterdam Heavy
Last Will
My Sucky Teen Romance
Small, Beautifully Moving Parts
Civil Love
Pawn’s Move
More Than Chance
The Guest House

Let’s be honest, you read the banner caption and didn’t even realize that it wasn’t Michael Clarke Duncan.  That’s because you are racist.  Or a lazy picture-viewer.  Or you don’t bother with banner captions because you’re so eager to get on with the DVDs.  Well keep on reading then, bucko!  If you’re offended by my crass exploitation of a nice man’s untimely death, click here for the Netflix lowdown and skip the DVDs  altogether. (Do you really think that’s the only Michael Clarke Duncan-is-dead joke I make in this post?)
