No Strings Attached
In this comedy, Emma and Adam are life-long friends who almost ruin everything by having sex one morning. In order to protect their friendship, they make a pact to keep their relationship strictly “no strings attached.” “No strings” means no jealousy, no expectations, no fighting, no flowers, no baby voices. It means they can do whatever they want, whenever they want, in whatever public place they want, as long as they don’t fall in love. The question becomes- who’s going to fall first? And can their friendship survive?
Starring: Ashton Kutcher, Natalie Portman
Directed by Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters 1 & 2, My Super Ex-Girlfriend )
Here we are with a dramedy that stars both Kutcher and Portman in some sort of relationship that folks wish they were in. When it comes down to it, Hollywood goes the happy route on this friends with benefits flick that would probably have most of us rolling our eyes. Don’t get me wrong, the films not that bad but in reality, it’s something we don’t need to waste our time watching thus why it gets the PASS label.
Old is New: This is a list of old titles of note that are being released on Blu-Ray for the first time. This week we see the release of the individual release of the Alien films. If you didn’t want to buy the whole box set, this is your chance to pick which film you wanted.
TV Show DVD:
Doctor Who: Story 55 – Terror of the Autons
“I have come to destroy you Doctor, once and for all!” The Earth is in terrible danger! The Master is back with an evil scheme to destroy humanity and silence the Doctor forever. His plan: To awaken the awesome power of the Nestene-a ruthlessly aggressive alien life form. Once mixed with plastic, they will form into faceless automatons, a willing army of destruction easily controlled by the evil Time Lord himself. This is the terrible threat now facing the Earth-the terror of the Autons. Aided by the Brigadier and his enthusiastic new assistant, Jo Grant, only the Doctor can combat their evil power, but first he must defeat the Master… Originally transmitted in color January 2nd-23rd 1971, this four part adventure starring Jon Pertwee was lost in its original form. Only a black and white version and an edited color American NTSC standard version remained until now when technology worthy of the Doctor himself has reconciled the two, synchronising them into one full color version.
Extras include: Audio Commentary; Life on Earth; The Doctor’s Moriarty; Plastic Fantastic; Photo Gallery; PDF materials: Radio Times Listings, promotional material from Sugar Smacks, Nestle; Production Notes.
Doctor Who: Story 74 – Planet of the Spiders
The Doctor and Sarah Jane journey to Metebelis 3 and aid its human colonists in an attempt to overthrow powerful alien forces, which manifest themselves as huge mutated “eight legs”-a giant spider with lethal powers.
Extras include: Audio Commentary; The Final Curtain; John Kane Remembers…; Directing Who with Barry Letts; Now & Then; Wogan; ‘Planet of the Spiders’ Omnibus Edition; Omnibus Trailer; Photo Gallery; PDF materials: Radio Times Listings; Production Notes.
Available: 2 Disk DVD Set
We got another two story release of classic Doctor Who in which this week features two stories from the third doctor. As always, you get a nice set of extras for each release and is worth showing up anyone’s collection on the good doctor.

Straight to Shelves For Your (Maybe) Viewing Pleasure:
When the demon god Loki (Richard Grieco) destroys the fortress of Valhalla and steals the Hammer of Invincibility, only the young hero Thor (Cody Deal) can protect Earth from Armageddon.
If you missed your chance to check out The Asylum’s recent film that apparently does no justice to any story about Thor on Syfy this past weekend, well here’s your chance as the word on the net is that the film fucking sucks. If your a fan of watching any of The Asylum’s film or just horrible movies in general, this one may be up your alley.
*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.*
