Social Network

SocialNetwork

On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history… but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications. From director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin comes The Social Network, a film that proves you don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.

Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake
Directed by David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Fight Club)

So hey, the Facebook movie is finally out on Blu-Ray and DVD. Okay, so the film is more about how Facebook came to be and maybe the story is a bit more dramatize than what actually happen but Fincher delivered a solid movie with the awesome cast that is worth the watch. The release is also quite packed with extras, such as couple of commentaries, documentary on how they made the movie, Trent Reznor and the score features, and more. With the good movie and solid set of extras, this makes it an easy BUY.

Available: Blu-Ray, 2 Disk DVD Set

Piranha (3D)

Piranha3D

Every year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for Spring Break, a riot of sun and drunken fun. But this year, there’s something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers; a new type of terror is about to be cut loose on Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents.

Starring: Elisabeth Shue, Jerry O’Connell and Richard Dreyfuss
Directed by Alexandre Aja (Mirrors, The Hills Have Eyes (2006))

Yes, you’re reading this right as I put this on BUY, mainly if your going to watch it in 3D as the film does it’s job as a campy b-horror movie and it has boobs. Either way, the film is enjoyable and if filled with cameos of actors that one can appreciate. The release comes with a standard set of extras such as commentaries and behind the scenes features.

Available: Blu-Ray 3D, Blu-Ray, DVD

Old is New Again: Today’s Old is New features a classic sci-fi film about Mars. Sure it may be an oldie but it does feature Adam West as one of the characters (this was before his fame with Batman) and a Monkey. With this being a Criterion Collection release, you know that it comes packing with some interesting amount of extras.

Robinson Crusoe on Mars

Blu-Ray 3D

The Universe: 7 Wonders of the Solar System

TU7WotSS

We are in the midst of the greatest era of space discovery. Twenty first-century spacecraft and sophisticated imaging technology are venturing into uncharted territory every day, and much of the extraordinary phenomena are happening right in our own cosmic backyard.

Take an exhilarating, unprecedented 3D tour of the seven most amazing wonders of our solar system, beginning with a trip to Enceladus, one of Saturn s outer moons, where icy geysers spout from its surface. Then venture to Saturn s famous rings, which contain mountain ranges that rival the Alps; dive into Jupiter s Great Red Spot, the eye of the biggest storm in the solar system; soar through the Asteroid Belt, made of millions of rocks left over from the formation of the solar system; trek up Mount Olympus, the largest volcano located on Mars; have a close encounter with the searing surface of the sun; and finish the journey by exploring our very own home planet Earth.

So it may seem that the footage on this release may be a bit old and went through a process to be in 3D but its still a release that may be worth checking out, especially if you want something that may capture a kids attention. What a better way to learn about space than watching something in 3D.

TV Show DVD

Doctor Who – Story 44: The Dominators

DW44

Dulkis: planet of harmony and enlightenment. Home to the peaceful Dulcians. An oasis of calm in the cosmos – and completely defenseless.

The Doctor, Jamie and Zoe arrive to find Dulkis enslaved by the cruel Dominators and their deadly robotic servants, the Quarks. The pacifist Dulcians offer no resistance. Can even the Doctor save a people who are willing collaborators in their own destruction?

Doctor Who – Story 11: Meglos

DW111

The Dodecahedron, a mysterious artifact that provides Tigella’s energy, leads the Savants and Deons to a crippling stalemate. Tigellan leader Zastor seeks the Doctor’s (Tom Baker) help, but the Doctor and Romana (Lalla Ward) are trapped by Meglos, who will stop at nothing to steal the Dodecahedron.

So we got two single story DVD releases that features the second doctor and the fourth doctor. As always, it comes packing with the same extras from the past releases (features, pdf files, etc.). It’s an easy way to add more of the doctor to your life and collection.

*NerdBastards’ DVD Tuesday feature only list certain releases that may have some interest for our audience and thus why it doesn’t list all releases as we are sure that you wouldn’t care for those.*
