Skyfall, Weeds

New DVD/VOD Tuesday, Feb. 12


Skyfall - MGM
  • MGM
  • Skyfall

James Bond (Daniel Craig) is back, then gone, then back again and up against his most fearsome villain yet: a cyberterrorist (Javier Bardem) with a ridiculous haircut and a vendetta against M (Judi Dench) and the MI6. Action, action, action! (MGM)

Weeds: Season 8
The final season, wherein Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) recovers from getting shot in the head (sorry, not a spoiler) and jumps back into the pot business (ditto). Then, seven years later, weed is all legal and corporate. Mind. Blown. (Paramount)

Aladdin & the Death Lamp
Aladdin (Darren Shahlavi) inadvertently unleashes an evil genie from his lamp. Now only he can stop it from destroying the world. So, really, the lamp is faultless here and quite unfairly labeled as a “death lamp.” Stupid Liberal Media. (Sony)

The Man With the Iron Fists
Following up his star turn in Santa Monica Cop, RZA directs, acts and soundtracks the tale of a man (with iron fists) who teams with Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu to kung fu the hell out of bad guys. Based on a true Wu-Tang fairytale. (Universal)

Is Ashley (Caitlin Gerard) being stalked by urban legend Smiley, a killer who supposedly creeps Internet chat rooms for victims, or just going crazy? Pertinent follow-up question: How did a 1998 genera-slasher flick get made in 2012? (Arc)
