Rambo III [Blu-ray]

Amazon Editorial Review: "And the hits just keep on coming. Sylvester Stallone, who can't seem to draw flies unless he's playing Rocky Balboa or John Rambo, went back to the Rambo well (or septic system, as it were) to show his well-known solidarity with the Afghan freedom fighters who battled the Soviet army in the 1980s.

Giant (Two-Disc Special Edition)

Directed by George Stevens, Starring Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson

Amazon Editorial Review: "They call it Giant because everything in this picture is big, from the generous running time (more than 200 minutes) to the sprawling ranch location (a horizon-to-horizon plain with a lonely, modest mansion dropped in the middle) to the high-powered stars. Stocky Rock Hudson stars as the confident, stubborn young ranch baron Bick Benedict, who woos and wins the hand of Southern belle Elizab..." New: $8.94! Used: $7.49!

Amazon Editorial Review: ""Joel, don't you have anything better to do than psychoanalyze a bunch of robots?" Apparently not in this hilarious installment of MST3K, in which Joel Hodgson and the robots of the Satellite of Love deconstruct this starched and stiff juvenile delinquent drama with everything from art projects to a giant mobile representing the hero's roiling subconscious.

Fiasco: A History of Hollywood's Iconic Flops

By James Robert Parish

Amazon Customer Review by M. Nichols: "If you enjoy reading glossy entertainment exposes like those found in Entertainment Weekly, you will enjoy this book. It features behind-the-scenes details of what contributed to the failure of certain well known movies, starting with Cleopatra and ending up with Battlefield Earth and Town and Country. Parish lists all the studio released movies between 1960 and 2004 that didn't earn back their costs. This list is extensive, and includes a lot of good films, including some (like The Insider in 1999) that were nominated for Oscars." New: $5.83! Used: $4.75!

My Summer Story

Directed by Bob Clark, Starring Charles Grodin, Kieran Culkin

Amazon Editorial Review: "This sequel to the wildly successful "A Christmas Story" traces Ralphie's summer transition from boyhood to young adulthood, aided by his eccentric family. Based on the novels of Jean Shepherd, the novelist and famous radio personality of the 1950's 60's and 70's. The film is narrated by Jean Shepherd, in the same familial voice that made him such a beloved radio star." New: $7.70! Used: $3.98!

Hot Shots! / Hot Shots! Part Deux (Double Feature)

Amazon Editorial Review: "The sequel to the wonderfully wacky Hot Shots! uses Rambo as its model for nonstop send-ups (though director Jim Abrahams can't resist inserting a Saddam Hussein lookalike, given the film's post-Gulf War release). This time, Lloyd Bridges, who was an admiral in the first movie, has become president (take that, Colin Powell!) and needs someone to take care of the threat posed by a cer..." New: $5.21!

Grand Illusion - Criterion Collection

Directed by Jean Renoir, Starring Jean Gabin, Dita Parlo

Amazon Editorial Review: "It's long been one of the revered classics of international cinema, but there is no fine layer of dust over La Grande Illusion. Jean Renoir's film is just as vibrant, exciting, and wise as it has ever been. The story is set during World War I, mostly in a couple of German POW camps, where two very different French prisoners plot to escape: the working-class officer Maréchal (Jean Gabin, the..."

Scarface [Blu-ray]

Amazon Editorial Review: "Scarface (1983)
This sprawling epic of bloodshed and excess, Brian De Palma's update of the classic 1932 crime drama by Howard Hawks, sparked controversy over its outrageous violence when released in 1983.

Serenity (Collector's Edition)

Directed by Joss Whedon

Amazon Customer Review by Brian Reaves: "This is one incredible movie. No, you don't have to be familiar with the series to enjoy it, but the familiarity will make several moments that much more tragic. The action is incredible, and unlike the Star Trek movies, the characters don't deviate from their series personas. The emotional impact of several scenes is so intense it was hard to stay seated (a crash landing sequence almost gave me motion sickness). This brings a satisfying end to the storyline the original series had started. It's a shame the show never got to tell this story in its entirety." New: $14.97! Used: $6.30!
