That’s why this is an easy RENT for any fans who have the time to check it out, not to mention it already had some TV air thus why it gets the rent label.

Do you want a film that is too long for it’s own good and is filled with cliches that it’ll pretty much bore you? No you say? Then this film is not for you as that’s the problem for this film. Sure it may be fun movie for you to turn your brain off but for 2 hours, no thanks. If you do happen to want to get this title, the Blu-ray version includes a ton of extras (where a few of them may be interesting) and a demo of Resistance 3.
Red Riding Hood
In a medieval village a beautiful young girl falls for an orphaned woodcutter, much to her family’s displeasure. When her sister is killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village, the people call on a famed werewolf hunter to help them kill the wolf. As the death toll rises with each moon, the girl begins to suspect that the werewolf could be someone she loves. Panic grips the town as she discovers that she has a unique connection to the beast–one that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect…and bait.
Starring: Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, Lukas Haas
Directed by Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight, Lords of Dogtown

Oh look, another film filled with cliches and some overacting. While it may be interesting to see darker versions of tales that we all grew up with, this film doesn’t do much for it thus why you can PASS on it.
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 season 2 release of the hit show Supernatural, which would mean that all the season that is available to purchase is now on Blu-ray.
TV Show Release:
Haven – The Complete First Season
FBI Agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) travels to Haven, Maine to investigate the murder of a local ex-con, but soon discovers that the small town is a refuge for people with supernatural afflictions. Now, it’s up to her to unlock Haven’s mysterious secrets, including the hidden truth about her past.
Extras include: Twelve Audio Commentaries with Cast & Crew, “Welcome to Haven” featurette, “Visual FX of Haven” featurette, “Mythology of Haven” featurette, Behind-the-Scenes Video Blogs, Additional Cast Interviews and Season Two Sneak Peek: Inside the Writers’ Room.
Hey look, it’s a Syfy show that isn’t canceled yet (though I guess we need to wait to see if it gets canceled during the second season). Either way, the show has been getting some good reviews and with the story being based on a Stephen King book, it may be something you want to check out.
Doctor Who – Episode 133: Frontios
New to DVD! Digitally remastered Doctor Who classic Frontios! An irresistible force draws the TARDIS to the barren surface of Frontios, where in the far future the last surviving humans cower amongst the ruins of their wrecked spacecraft. Under constant threat from lethal meteorite bombardments, few of the doomed colony members realize that the ground of Frontios itself opens up and devours the unwary. Not permitted to assist, the Doctor attempts to leave, but is thwarted when the unimaginable occurs: the TARDIS is utterly destroyed. All the while, burrowing undetected below the planet’s crust, sickening alien parasites prepare a gruesome and final fate for all humanity.
Extras include: Audio Commentary; Deleted Scenes; Extended takes; Featurette; Making of; Other; Photo gallery; Production Notes.
Here we are with an a DVD release on the fifth doctor. Like any Doctor Who individual story release, it is filled with extras that any fans will enjoy and worth adding to ones collection.
