A new column for you all. A list of the top DVD picks for the week! Check out the titles below along with a link to buy and a synopsis for you, enjoy!

Pushing Daisies: The Complete First Season [Blu-ray]
Pushing Daisies is a fantastic show that is about as close as a TV show can get to feeling like a movie, this side of LOST. If you are a fan of Tim Burton and that odd sense of humor this show will be right up your ally and this is a perfect way to catch up before the new season starts in October.

Snow Angels
Snow Angels is a drama from David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) that revolves around the lives of a couple of ex’s and what happens when their daughter goes missing. Sam Rockwell and Kate Beckinsale star and this will be one I check out this Tuesday.

Speed Racer [Blu-ray]
Speed Racer was a winner, and was born to be seen on Blu! I can not wait to see this in beautiful 1080p in all of its glory. This is a 2-Disc set, plus a digital copy to boot. For fans it is a must buy, and for those that stayed away for no reason, check out one of the most entertaining films of the summer!

The Mist [Blu-ray]
The Mist was one of the better films of 07 and I can’t wait to finally get to see the B&W version of the film, have been holding out for this release, and see the film the way Darabont intended. A create little mind f*** of a movie that is about the monsters inside of people as much as it is about the monsters in The Mist.

Made of Honor
The Patrick Dempsey chick flick was enjoyed by the females in my life that saw it, and I will admit that the preview didn’t look half bad. Anyways, I will be watching this film in the not to distant future I am sure and this will probably be the next “date night” movie you get from the video store.

Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy [Blu-ray]
Here is your chance to get this recent blockbuster trilogy all together and at a bit of a discounted rate. I would pick this up but I got At Worlds End already in HD and I am waiting for those other two to go on a good sale. Anyways, the 2nd film is considered reference quality for A/V and they are some really fun films anyways. Check it out.
