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

Ninja Assasin (Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy) – As cartoonishly violent and rock-n-roll fun as the trailer suggests, Rain (Korean pop superstar) was the perfect man to star in this movie.

Vengeance Trilogy (Sympathy for Mr. Vegeance/Oldboy/Lady Vengeance) – If you just can’t wait until June 15th for the Blu-ray version, or if you only have a DVD player, then this is a perfect violent Korean art-house counterbalance to the American-made Korean-starring Ninja Assassin.

The Princess and The Frog (Three Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo with Digital Copy) – I’ve heard so many mixed reviews for Disney’s first traditionally cel-animated movie in decades that I couldn’t bring myself to watch it.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon [Blu-ray] – On top of all the things you can say are stupid about the Twilight series, add that they decided to release their movie on Saturday instead of Tuesday. This reeks of the worst (and most pointless) marketing ideas that exist.

Twilight in Forks-Saga of the Real Town – The leeches trying to make money from the Twilight series are perfectly on schedule. (Maybe I’m being unfair. Maybe someone with a good heart really felt strongly about the real town behind the fictional story.)

Bandslam – My wife LOVES any movie that ends in a dance-off or similar situation, and this teen flick _does_ have a freshness rating of !!! 80% !!!, so I bet I get to see it soon.

Billy: The Early Years Of Billy Graham – I was raised in an evangelical church in the `80’s, so this biopic starring Martin Landau, directed by 70/80`s Teen Beat cover boy Robby Benson is a must see.

Smash Cut – I avoided this “at Fantastic Fest”:http://fantasticfest.bside.com/2009/films/smashcut_fantasticfest2009 last year (despite being the Adam Green short lead-in) and the reviews verify that it’s a stinker.
