Your Mid-Week Guide To DVD & Blu-ray: C-Tates Goes White House Down On Lovelace

Today is Tuesday, November 5th and you know what that means: it’s Guy Fawkes Day! Unlike most Americans who’ve only heard of Guy Fawkes because of the V For Vendetta movie, I first heard of the man way back in 1996 thanks to a little computer game called The Pink Panther: Passport To Peril.  Suck it, haters. But enough about me, we’ve got DVDs to discuss! There are several reasonably high profile films coming out on disc today, and obviously White House Down and Lovelace are among them. Additionally, we’ve got several films that are packed to the gills with celebrities such as Billy Bob Thornton, Adam Sandler, James Franco, Danny McBride, Kristen Wiig, Rachel McAdams, Cillian Murphy, Edward Burns, Amber Heard, Meat Loaf, Luke Perry, Katee Sackhoff, and perhaps most exciting, Dazed & Confused‘s Wiley Wiggins! We’ve got presidents and porn stars.  We’ve got literary adaptations and historical recreations.  We’ve even got three movies with the word ‘Christmas’ in the title!

The DVDs:

White House Down



Grown Ups 2

As I Lay Dying

Clear History

Girl Most Likely



The Fitzgerald Family Christmas


Computer Chess

All American Christmas Carol

Scoot & Kassie’s Christmas Adventure

A Deadly Obsession


(You may notice that I’ve omitted one of today’s bigger DVD releases: the extended edition cut of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.  Apparently Peter Jackson added 14 extra minutes of dwarves doing light housework around Bilbo’s home, shaking out rugs, dusting lintels -that sort of thing.  Thrilling, I know, but that doesn’t make it a film new to DVD, so tough cookies, Tolkien fans.)
