Finally, a new generation gets to learn who Kip and Henry are.

Casino Royale

Due respect to Goldfinger, I think this may be the best Bond film ever made. There.  I said it. Daniel Craig delivers on the promise of Layer Cake (and Munich, really) with his dark portrayal of the "part hitman, part monk" with energetic direction by Martin Campbell (who seems like he started taking adrenalin injections since he directed Goldeneye) and a tight script by veteran Bond scribes Neal Purvis and Paul Wade and some guy named Paul Haggis.  

The first Bond flick in a generation where the dialogue is as good as the action, Royale is worth picking up for the parkour opening chase and the snappy first meet and greet between Bond and Bond girl (the outstanding Eva Green) alone. Extras include an "intimate" look at how Craig got the role, so I'm going to assume everyone in that featurette is naked. 

Bosom Buddies – The First Season

It's been so long since I actually watched this show that I don't remember if it's actually funny, but at the time, I thought it was the shit. Chances are, with Tom Hanks riffing off the underrated Peter Scolari, it'll hold up. If not, hey, you get to see Tom Hanks in drag.

No special features, which is too bad since I would love to hear Hank's take on this today. 

The Holiday 

Nancy Meyer's latest got kind of a "meh" response upon arrival, which is surprising since she took Something's Gotta Give, a film that upon first glance I wouldn't give a second, and spun it into almost post-modern gold. And here she's got Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, and Jack Black to play with. I swear, one of these days, Jude Law is gonna make a comeback. Even though he never really left. You'll see.

Extras include director's commentary and a featurette. 


Writer/director John Cameron Mitchell follows up the delicious Hedwig and the Angry Inch with this sexually explicit (and by that, I meant they're really doing it) foray into the lives of people who like to have sex. Lots of extras, including the promisingly-titled featurette "How to Shoot Sex: A Docu-Primer" 

Harsh Times

When David Ayer, the writer of Training Day and the not-perfect-but-still-compelling Dark Blue announced he was making yet another Evil-Los-Angeles opus, this one starring Christian Bale and Freddie Rodriguez, which he would also direct, I was pretty psyched. When it finally came out, no one else was. Still, with that combo of talent, I'll be hard pressed not to take a peek. Extras include commentary by Ayer.

In this week's long list: The Dukes of Hazzard saga continues, and there's nothing you can do about it.
