Eagleheart - ADULT SWIM
  • Adult Swim
  • Eagleheart

Eagleheart: Season 1
U.S. Marshal Chris Monsanto (Chris Elliott) plays by his own rules and delivers justice with as much violent punching, kicking and shooting as possible, warranted or not (mostly not). More plausible (and shorter) than Walker, Texas Ranger. (Adult Swim)

Cook County
A troubled teen (Ryan Donowho) and his ex-con uncle (Xander Berkeley) struggle to get out of the grips of meth addiction and psycho dealer “Uncle Bump” (Anson Mount). More Winter’s Bone, less travel ad for East Texas. (Hannover)

Gwyneth Paltrow Film Collection
Lionsgate has assembled four of Gwyneth Paltrow’s greatest cinematic achievements in one convenient package: Shakespeare in Love, Emma Bounce? View From the Top? What, no Shallow Hal? Sky Captain? Duets? For shame. (Lionsgate)

Logan’s Run: The Complete Series
The 1977-78 CBS TV series, finally on DVD—with three unaired episodes! Sure, the writing, acting and effects were even worse than the movie’s (dig the “hovercraft,” a silver-paneled dune buggy), but three unaired episodes! (Warner Bros.)

Smitty
A bratty, juvi-bound teen (Brandon Tyler Russell) is hauled off by his mom (Mira Sorvino) to grandpa’s (Peter Fonda) farm, where he learns Valuable Life Lessons from a mutt named Smitty. Also starring Booboo(!) Stewart as “Peabo”(!!). (Phase 4)
