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

* “Go”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0139239/ – With a “92% on RT”:http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1087053-go/ this film is clearly considered a classic. I remember it as being a little _too_ frenetic, but I’m anxious to see it again.
* “The Last Starfighter (25th Anniversary)”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087597/ – Fanboys are going to buy this in droves, remembering how cool it was to see someone live the dream of getting sucked into being the hero of an awesome video game. If I recall correctly, though, this was a typical 80’s nerd movie.
* “Tyson”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1032821/ – A documentary with an “86% on RT”:http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1208128-tyson/, the reviews on this are strong. With Tyson’s surprising cameo in *The Hangover* and his desire to clear up his tabloid image, this should be pretty good.
* “The Last House on the Left”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0844708/ – Released to tepid reviews, I want to see any revenge movie, and I didn’t get a chance to see this in the theater.
* “Surveillance”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0409345/ – I saw this at Fantastic Fest last year. Like *Reservoir Dogs* (or any number of Tarantino films) it was difficult to empathize with the any of the characters in this (as I said in “my review”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/2008/09/25/3855/ back then) and that makes me disincented to pay attention. At least if you see this twisted graphic murder mystery now, you shouldn’t have someone ruin the ending as I had happen to me.
