Humanity’s darkest hour: The looting of the Budweiser

Today’s Tuesday, and you know what that means: everybody’s busy playing Grand Theft Auto V.  But until they adapt that into a movie and that movie hits DVD & Blu-ray, it’s none of my goddamned business, so let’s talk about what is: this week’s new DVDs.  World War Z is the big heavy-hitter this week, but it’s got plenty of company with films starring Emma Watson, Jason Bateman, Ellen Page, Nick Offerman, Eliza Coupe, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Greenwood, and Brendan Fraser.  If you read carefully, I might even squeeze in a bit of Matt Damon. We’ve got danger from every angle: there are zombies and thieves, internet predators and anarchists.  We’ve got homicidal rednecks, sociable serial killers, and a character described as a klepto-terrorist. There’s even a special appearance by Kathie Lee Gifford as herself!

There’s a lot to digest this week, so don’t hesitate to continue our journey on the next page.  I’ll be honest, we go to some dark places. I may even make implications about my history with auto-erotic asphyxiation, so don’t get hung up here, click on over to page two and we’ll get off to the actual movies.
