Every week I make a list of notable discs being released so I can figure out what I “need” to buy. ;)

* “Gran Torino”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1205489/ – After Eastwood ripped out my joy with *Million Dollar Baby* I didn’t feel he deserved my trust, so I’ve been holding out on seeing *Gran Torino* until the “this movie kills puppies” spoilers came out. I guess since no puppies have died, it is safe to see, and it _did_ get an “80%”:http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/gran_torino/ freshness rating on RT.
* “Fatal Attraction”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093010/ – The movie that made one night stands and stalking adulterers into Oscar nominated art. I’m almost afraid to see it again in Hi Def.
* “Powder Blue”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1032819/ – It’s hard to imagine a movie so bad that it can’t get a theatrical release even though it includes a nude stripper Jessica Biel. If this movie appeals to you, then I have to assume Blu-Ray is the only way to see it.
* “Predator 2”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100403/ – It’s not a bad sequel, and Danny Glover playing a hard-ass is interesting, but only a Gary Busey completest would call this a “must have”.
* “Elsewhere”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0874271/ – Can the power of *Twilight* sell other bad movies simply through casting? One of the secondary actresses (Anna Kendrick, who plays Jessica Stanley) from Twilight wasn’t satisfied with simply contributing to a bad movie, she was compelled to star in her own.
* “Time Warp”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1312022/ – Slow motion cinematography gets a hip/cool outfit from the nerds at Discovery Channel in this TV series out on disc tomorrow. _Word_ on the streets is that it’s awesome.
