DVD: Catch Up Quick

This list was requested by Oh My Trill. For readers who haven't made it to the movie theater as much as they would've liked and are trying to catch up. Here's rental ideas so that you can follow along with all the year end lists, articles, FB Awards, and the usual arguments that rage on through February and the Oscar hullabaloo. All of these movies are out on DVD already (or will be by 12/26 in a couple of cases).

Because it's really good: Duck Season (Mexico)
Really f***ing scary: The Descent, An Inconvenient Truth
Movie-Movie Fun: Inside Man, Monster House, A Prairie Home Companion, The Devil Wears Prada, Little Miss Sunshine
For Actressexuals: Friends With Money
Gretchen Mol is naked. Gretchen Mol is naked a lot: The Notorious Bettie Page
Some (not me) think it a masterpiece: Three Times (Taiwan)
might be nominated for foreign film: Water (Canada)
You should probably have an opinion, be it love or hate: The Black Dahlia, Lady in the Water, Miami Vice

Yeah people, go check out Duck Season...ahora.

"You should probably have an opinion, be it love or hate:"

United 93 is totally a contender in that category. Plus, it's winning lots of awards. So...

Oh, and: Brick and Hard Candy!

And I would advise people to try and find Look Both Ways if it's out on DVD over your side of the ocean. It's a fabo movie, really it is!

Didn't get Duck Season. (Also, didn't get The Death of Mr. Lazarescu.) Bo-ring. I suppose I should watch them a second time, but, frankly, I just don't want to.

Thanks Nat...Just got Prairie Home Companion and United 93...will be going back to the video store soon to work down the list! I've been such a bad boy (movie-wise) this year...forgive me?

Really want to see Prairie Home Companion. Other than that, I'll get to these movies in a couple of years when they come to West Texas :(

Carlinhos Brown: yes, the Death of Mr. Lazarescu is out on DVD from Tartan.

Other good ones from 2006 not mentioned yet include the Devil and Daniel Johnston, I Am A Sex Addict, Kekexili: Mountain Patrol and L'Enfant.


Polivamp --surely West Texas has Netflix or a video store?
