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

* “Big Trouble in Little China”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090728/ – I’ve always found this to be _too_ over-the-top, but the fanboys go nuts for Kurt Russel and oriental magic.
* “My Cousin Vinny”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104952/ – This is one of those films that some would call a “guilty pleasure”, but I feel no guilt admitting a love for the entire cast and the script is hilarious. Also, this is the first of three films released this week that play to my southern bias.
* “Sling Blade”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117666/ – An academy award winning movie filmed in central Arkansas demonstrates that art can be created by a man from Hot Springs. Billy Bob hasn’t lived up to his promise after writing and directing a home-set movie (like some other Ben Affleck in the same category two years later) but if we all could be known for one great movie we should have no complaints.
* “The Waterboy”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120484/ – The third movie to play to my southern bias is the only silly Adam Sandler movie I like. I’m not sure a Blu-Ray transfer was neccesary, though.
* “The Machine Girl 1.5”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1050160/ – If you didn’t get this absurdist piece of Japanese cinema since its release almost a year ago, I’m not sure you’d buy it again…unless you’re just dying to watch all the extras on the new second disk.
