New DVDs Tuesday, Oct. 23


Magic Mike - WARNER BROS.
  • Warner Bros.
  • Magic Mike

Magic Mike
A male stripper (Channing Tatum) with a heart of gold and a dream helps a kid get a (third) leg up in the business, gets screwed by his boss (Matthew McConaughey), and learns Valuable Life Lessons. Oh, and Olivia Munn gets naked. (Warner Bros.)

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
What the history books never taught you: Abraham Lincoln was a vamp slayer! Of course, he was momentarily distracted by becoming president and abolishing slavery, but this is still the best Commander in Chief bio since W. (Fox)

How to Be a Sex Star
Nathan Hill stars in the “pickup artist” mockumentary that can’t possibly hope to be as funny as the original Pickup Artist, Mystery. Remember him? He now owns and operates a Wienerschnitzel with Kato Kaelin. (MVD)

Snorks: Season 1
The animated ’80s series that no one has been clamoring for, finally on DVD: The friendly race of Snorks live under the sea in Snorkland, and occasionally make the sound “snork.” Yeah, kids were even dumber back then. (Warner Bros.)

Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines
As long as good-lookin’ college students (who probably grew up watching Snorks) insist on spring-breaking in the woods, they’re going to have unpleasant encounters with cannibal hillbillies. It’s in the West Virginia travel brochure. (Fox)
