Rock of Ages, Whitney

New DVDs Tuesday, Oct. 9


Rock of Ages - WARNER BROS.
  • Warner Bros.
  • Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages
The ’80s hair-metal-Glee flick that proved Tom Cruise rocks, Poison songs are timelessly bad, Malin Akerman should be in everything, and even Russell Brand can’t be the worst part of a movie that also stars Julianne Hough. (Warner Bros.)

Whitney: Season 1
The most (wrongly) maligned comedy of the 2011 season, starring Whitney Cummings and Chris D’Elia as a marginally dysfunctional couple with wildly dysfunctional friends. Compared to NBC’s new comedies, looking even better. (Universal)

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 7
The season of Fat Mac! Sure, there’s also crack ’hos, swipes at Toddlers & Tiaras and Jersey Shore, Dee’s IRS audit, Frank’s brother, Facebook stalking and, of course, CharDee MacDennis, but it’s still the season of Fat Mac! Own it! (Fox)

Annie Claus Is Coming to Town
Eagleheart’s Maria Thayer stars as Annie, daughter of Santa, who splits the North Pole and ends up in Los Angeles. Soon, she falls in love with a traditionalist toy-shop owner (Sam Page) and resolves/reinforces those daddy issues. (Gaiam)

Holliston: Season 1
The FearNet (it’s a cable channel way up there somewhere) comedy series about two Holliston, Mass., pals chasing their dream of becoming horror filmmakers, with guests like Dee Snider and GWAR’s Oderus Urungus. Funny and bloody. (Image)
