on Sunday, January 13, 2013
It's the debut episode of The DVD Shelf, where your host David Rose reveals, reviews, and recommends the movies you should have on your own DVD shelf! He takes a look at the Tim Burton film Ed Wood, starring Johnny Depp as one of the worst directors in history, and delves into Wood's real life to see how it compares to Burton’s hilarious vision of the man. Plus: a look at the Ed Wood Special Edition DVD. All this and more on the show where movies are celebrated, not incinerated!
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
“We expect Benjamin to have interesting things happen to him, but no, he’s just a boring man with an odd condition.”RiffTrax: Plan 9 from Outer Space LIVE! Nashville 2009 (2010)
“Not only is RiffTrax popular enough to produce real DVDs, but they’ve also earned the clout to put on live shows out in the real world, giving their fans a rare excuse to actually leave their homes. In 2009, a live event was staged in Nashville, Tennessee and broadcast to theaters all across the country, featuring the RiffTraxers (RiffTraxians?) taking on one of the most infamous ‘bad’ movies of all time, Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space. And as you may have already guessed from the title, this DVD is a document of that event.”Silver Linings Playbook (2012): Bipolar disorder as cute rom-com quirk
“Take away the bipolar disorder, OCD, and neuroses, and you’ve basically got yourself a typical romantic comedy.”American Sniper is not the real Chris Kyle, and that’s okay
“I kind of hate that people are assuming that the film is trying to sanctify Chris Kyle by portraying him not as he was, but as, well, Bradley Cooper trying to finally win an Oscar. ”Argo (2012)
“Had the film been helmed by a more seasoned director, or even a relative unknown, it never would have taken home the big prize. Because ultimately, the most interesting thing about Argo is that Ben Affleck directed it.”Franchise Evolution: The Godfather
“The thing is, when I see a sacred cow, I get really hungry for a burger!”
