DVD Review AFTER.LIFE

AFTER.LIFE

Not perfect, but a worthwhile rental if you like occasionally stylish and moody films set in funeral homes, discussions of the afterlife and/or seeing Christina Ricci nude.

A pair of outstanding DTS-HD Master Audio mixes make this BD release of this landmark 1970 documentary about the Stones ill-fated Altamont concert sound like you are there.

DVD Review THE CREW

THE CREW

DVD Review THE ALZHEIMER'S PROJECT

THE ALZHEIMER'S

As if there are any "good" illnesses, Alzheimer's is simply a cruel joke of a disease; anyone who has lived the agony of having a parent or grandparent go through the ravages will certainly attest to that.

The Vineyard

Our look back through the last ten years of reviews at digitallyOBSESSED.com brings out another writer who is still contributing reviews on the site. Rich Rosell has posted almost 1300 reviews and is still counting. Here is his take on Anchor Bay's May 2001 release of The Vineyard, starring James Hong, from this date in 2001.

DVD Review PUSHING DAISIES: THE COMPLETE 2ND SEASON

PUSHING DAISIES

Another winner from creator Bryan Fuller, Pushing Daisies is certainly one of the more uniquely inventive and colorful television series of recent years, sadly canceled way before its time.

Highly recommended.

DVD Review YOUNG & HANDSOME: A NIGHT WITH JEFF GARLIN

YOUNG & HANDSOM

If you only know Jeff Garlin from his role on Curb Your Enthusiasm then this leisurely paced standup act may come off a bit surprising. He's an entertaining storyteller, and even when he goes off the rails it's a fun listen.

I'll just try not to nitpick that the cover is labeled Young & Handsome: A Night with Jeff Garlin, while the menu titles call it Young and Handsome: An Evening with Jeff Garlin.

DVD Review NURSERY UNIVERSITY

NURSERY UNIVERS

The absurdity of spending $20,000 a year to get your three-year-old in the "right" preschool is one thing, but the nearly year-long process of simply getting selected is quite another. And all of the pathetic and misplaced pressure being applied to these kids on display here is enough to make me almost vomit.

Someone tell my why a three-year-old needs be learning Mandarin or tennis as opposed to—I don't know—playing with other kids?

DVD Review SPRING BREAKDOWN (BLU-RAY)

SPRING BREAKDOW

I'm a sucker for Amy Poehler, and though this lightweight comedy stays on the path of predictability and has trouble hitting the 80 minute mark, it was not the worst thing I've ever seen.

But does it really need to be on Blu-Ray? Hardly.

DVD Review DOWN AND DIRTY WITH JIM NORTON

Dirty isn't always funny. That means this collection of comedy's "most outspoken and dirtiest stand-ups" has the potential to be hit-or-miss. And it is.

DVD Review WE FEED THE WORLD

WE FEED THE WOR

As the backcover blurb on this disc asks: "What does world hunger have to do with us?"

A lot, that's what.

And that's just what this 2005 Austrian documentary about our modern agricultural system—especially the impacts of hybridization—attempts to convey.

The disc doesn't carry any extras at all, but the film itself merits a look.

Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson decide to do a bunch of things before they die while Rob Reiner directs them.

Freeman and Nicholson save this from being pure schmaltz, and beneath it all the message carries some real substance.

DVD Review FALLING DOWN DELUXE EDITION

FALLING DOWN

This re-release sports a remastered image transfer that almost makes this one look brand new. Michael Douglas gives one of his better performances as a man who just can't take it anymore, and it's tough to not cheer as he exacts the kind of revenge that I'm sure we've all secretly imagined.

DVD Review DR. HORRIBLE' S SING-ALONG BLOG

DR. HORRIBLE' S

Just like with the classic Buffy The Vampire Slayer musical episode, I can't get these songs out of my head. It's funny, nerdy and even a little bittersweet, with a spot-on performance from Neil Patrick Harris as the titular bad guy trying to get the girl and change the world.

The content for this re-release carries the same content as the indie on-demand December 2008 version, with the only major difference being an ever so slight variation in the cover art and the fact that it is has been professionally authored and is not on a DVD+R.

Highly recommended.

DVD Review TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY (BLU-RAY) SKYNET EDITION

TERMINATOR 2: J

One of the great sci-fi/action movies of all-time gets yet another repackaging, this time with a nice looking BD transfer, a pair of audio mixes that will rock the foundation and a ton of extras from versions past.

The film is highly recommended, though here it's not necessarily a double-dip candidate. But if you've held off this long this is definitely the version to get.

DVD Review CRUDE IMPACT

CRUDE IMPACT

A cynic could accuse this of being one-sided or not offering enough concrete solutions, but even so, the message laid out here is sobering, depressing and more than a little frightening. Crude Impact is hardly the only doc out there ringing the same warning bell, yet it's an intelligent wake-up call that I can only hope hasn't come too late.

Highly recommended.
