A Vegas bachelor party gone wrong leads this week's DVD releases in the FOXLight. Justin Bartha's getting married, so buddies Bradley Cooper and "The Office's" Ed Helms along with future brother-in-law Zach Galifianakis take him to a Sin City send-off in The Hangover. Next morning, they find a baby in one room, a tiger in another, and no groom to be found. And the fun is in piecing it all together.
Writer/Director Quentin Tarantino thought, "Wouldn't it be great to skew history so that the Jews could exact some bloody retribution on the Nazis?" And the result was Inglourious Basterds, where Brad Pitt organizes a group of Jewish soldiers to kick some Third Reich butt.
Computer-animated guinea pigs with the voices of Penelope Cruz, Nicolas Cage and Tracy Morgan set out to save the world in Disney's G-Force.
Also out this week...
Taking Woodstock is director Ang Lee's comedic take on the true story of Elliot Tiber, played by comedian Demetri Martin, who tries to save his family's dilapidated Catskills motel by relocating a music festival from a neighboring town that pulled its permit. Next thing, half-a-million people converge and a cultural revolution has begun. Also starring Eugene Levy, Liev Schreiber and Imelda Staunton.
The Mel Brooks Collection comes to Blu-Ray, besting its 3-year-old DVD counterpart by adding one more blockbuster to the mix: Spaceballs. Also included is Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, High Anxiety, History of the World Part 1 (my personal favorite), Robin Hood: Men In Tights, Silent Movie, To Be Or Not To Be and The Twelve Chairs.
And TV on DVD this week includes:
Premium cable hit The Tudors: Complete 3rd Season
A bunch of basic cable favorites including Ice Road Truckers: Season 3
Robot Chicken: Season 4
The Five Lives of Criss Angel: Mindfreak (Season 5)
TLC's new ratings king (and Maurer family favorite) Cake Boss: Season 1
Broadcast classic drama Paper Chase: Season 2
And the original Star Trek: Season 3 (Blu-Ray edition) featuring every episode in its original form, plus new versions with added CGI effects.
No CGI effects are to be found on the FOXLight Podcast, which can be your best friend this holiday shopping season in that it combines this report along with this week's music releases into one neat little sonic treasure. Get it for FREE here: http://feeds.foxnewsradio.com/thefoxlight
