My DVD/Blu-Ray Pick
South Park: Season 14 – not a lot to choose from on the movie front this week so I’m picking one of my favorite TV comedies of all time. Yes, South Park is still hilarious after 14 seasons. One of the edgiest shows out there while keeping current with pop culture. Season 14 poked fun at Tiger Woods, Facebook, Tom Cruise (again), NASCAR, Jersey Shore and Inception. There’s an episode about medicinal marijuana, Coon & Friends return and a hilarious finale with the Shake Weight and an obsession with the Food Network. Season 15 starts this Wednesday, April 27th so there’s no better way to get in the mood than rewatching Season 14.
My Theater Pick
Fast Five – When the original The Fast & The Furious movie came out, I wouldn’t have imagined myself being intrigued by a fifth installment of the series. I wasn’t even the least bit interested in the second installment. But after the terrible 2 Fast 2 Furious and the even worse The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift, the franchise brought back the stars and had a decent outing with Fast & Furious. Yes, these names are so annoying. Anyway, Fast & Furious director Justin Lin returns for Fast Five, bringing back the stars of the previous movies like Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Ludacris, Tyrese and Jordana Brewster. This time adding in Dwayne THE ROCK Johnson as the cop on their tail during a big heist. Looks like it could be another fun action movie that is leading into summer blockbuster season.
