Beer In Hell, This Is It, Pawn Stars, Surrogates, Whip It

New DVD releases Tuesday, Jan. 26



I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell

The long-un-awaited film adaptation of blogger/author Tucker Max’s book of the same name, starring several nobodies— and Traci Lords! How did a guy who can barely write make a fairly decent movie? He didn’t star in it.

Michael Jackson’s This Is It

Pre-mortem rehearsal and backstage footage of Michael Jackson’s ill-fated 2009 London concerts that reminds us not only how talented he really was but how much of a naggy bitch choreographer Kenny Ortega still is.

Pawn Stars: Season 1

How is a reality show about a Las Vegas pawn shop more addictive than The Antiques Roadshow? You never see Playboy magazine collections, sweet electric guitars and Kiss pinball machines on PBS, do ya?


Bruce Willis, his ridiculous wig and the people of the future live as robotic avatars in a world free of murder—you know, until someone gets murdered. Then, it’s up to Willis to unravel a conspiracy! If not a wig.

Whip It

Drew Barrymore’s indie comedy about a Texas teen (Ellen Page) caught up with Austin roller derby and a prick boyfriend—which always happens in roller derby. Action-packed and funny, if sometimes too “girly.” That ain’t derby!
