If you need a break from your Oscar checklist, or simply prefer to watch some of the early contenders from the comfort of your couch, here are the latest releases on DVD (and most popular downloads). It’s a good week for action fans. For your convenience, I’ve divided them into two categories: Worth a Watch and Must Miss.
You may think that people who have Down syndrome (DS) aren’t capable of the same things as you. That may be the biggest misconception out there about the condition, caused by an extra copy of chromosome 21.
It seems Oscar is taking a nap this week, so it might be a good time to hit the couch with a good download. Here are the new releases and top rentals:
Good news: The kids are in bed at a decent hour. Bad news: It’s getting darker earlier. Good news: There’s a refreshing crispness in the air. Bad news: The rainy chill of autumn has arrived. Good news: Vin Diesel and Channing Tatum have been locked up until next summer. Bad news: George Clooney and Michael Fassbender haven’t been let out yet. Good news: There are some outstanding films to watch at home. Bad news: There are some that are so appalling, you will wonder why no one warned you. Well, consider yourself warned...
If the theater selections seem grim, don’t lose hope. There are some colorful options available to watch from the comfort of your own home.
What do you think of when you hear the word ‘diesel?’ Though Americans were traumatized by a colossal diesel failure by GM in the late ‘70s, Europeans have embraced diesels for their better gas mileage and durability.
Film critics are calling this the 'Summer of the Bomb.' I’m not sure studios have ever had so many box office flops in one season. Audiences are telling Hollywood in no uncertain terms that it’s going to take more than an A-list star and a hundred-million-dollar budget to sell tickets. So, if Channing Tatum in a wife-beater or Johnny Depp in war paint doesn't get you excited, I’m sorry to say I have good news and bad news on the home front. Here are some interesting rentals and some I wouldn't watch if I were tied to the chair.
If you’re looking for a rewarding way to spend an evening, might I suggest avoiding the cineplex. There are a few worth seeing that you can watch from the comfort of your home. Here’s what’s out:
If you are not in the mood for car chases, gun battles, nuclear threats or absurd premises, then I suggest you stay home and rent Silver Linings Playbook. When a Tom Cruise-driven, alien-invasion, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it extravaganza grosses $5 million opening weekend, you know there are some movies out there resetting the bar. So if you are craving salty snacks, an overpriced soda and some state-of-the-art computer-generated imaging, you won’t be disappointed…And, action!

I’ve been putting off writing this story for some time—too many things to tell you about and too little space. Yes, San Diego has a brilliant blue ocean and blue skies most of the time, mild temperatures year-round, a strong Spanish/Mexican heritage that permeates most of its architecture and culture, a huge U.S. Navy presence, amazing beaches and golf courses, a wealth of public and private universities and a world-famous zoo. You knew all this already, didn’t you?
Well, it’s another B- week at the movies. If you’ve checked all the Oscar nominated films off your list, and you’ve seen Olympus Has Fallen and Oz the Great and Powerful, it might be a good weekend to park on your couch. Here are some options:
OK. If your Oscar checklist is complete, and you are nauseated by the options at the cineplex—as well you should be—there is a silver lining. Not Silver Linings Playbook yet, but you have options. There are some great DVDs that came out this week, so if you want to stay in and hunker down with a good movie, these are my suggestions:
After the weekend I’ve had at the cineplex, I can say with confidence that unless you’ve got any of the Oscar winners you need to check off your list, stay home and download a movie. Here are some suggestions:
The Baldwin Report
Diabetes is one of the most prevalent diseases of modern society. An increasing number of people are developing this complex metabolic disease, in which high blood sugar occurs because the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or because the cells in the body do not respond to the insulin being produced.
If you’re waiting for the Skyfall line at the box office to die down, here’s what's hot on DVD
New on DVD
Rather than waste my time (and yours) on the Nth installment of the Resident Evil franchise or Finding Nemo 3D—which, by the way, is very similar to the original except that everything really comes at you—I thought I would help you out with some rental options. Here’s what’s out on DVD right now:
Well, Oscar season may be just around the corner, but it’s not here yet. So if you aren’t in the mood for a car chase or see a bunch of stuff get blown up, I suggest you avoid the Cineplex this month. The bad news: Yes, it’s the standard pabulum or sequels and remakes. The good news: Some of them look awesome.
