Sorry, What to Watch took a turkey day break as last week was really light on new product worth mentioning. This week? Pretty much the same but we don’t want you to miss us too badly. Here’s five recent Blu-ray, DVD, and streaming releases that may have caught your attention on new release shelves lately, ranked in the order we’d add them to our holiday wish list.
A Bug's Life
CHICAGO – If you have yet to jump on the Blu-Ray bandwagon or are new to the HD revolution and have yet to see a Pixar film in 1080P, the new edition of “A Bug’s Life” would be a great place to start. With releases like the great one for “WALL-E” and now this gorgeous transfer for “A Bug’s Life,” Disney/Pixar produces HD video clarity that really must be seen to be believed.
CHICAGO – “Rescue Me” star Denis Leary takes a moment out of his busy schedule on Dec. 5, 2008 to explain “why we suck” before a packed book signing for his best-selling book “Why We Suck: A Feel Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy and Stupid” at Borders on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue. Leary starred in 52 episodes of “Rescue Me” from 2004 to 2007.
CHICAGO – While perfection can be characterized in many ways, there’s only one way to define perfect in film: one with everything you could ask for and nothing you could cut. Though this a highly unlikely proposition, “WALL-E” has become 2008’s first perfect film and one of the best Pixar projects of all time.
