DVD Roundup

Friday the 13th – pictureFrom Roger Ebert: “So far in the series, he has been drowned, sliced by a machete in the shoulder, hit with an ax in the head, supposedly cremated, aped by a copycat killer, buried, resurrected with a lightning bolt, chained to a boulder and thrown in the lake again, resurrected by telekinesis, drowned again, resurrected by an underwater electrical surge, melted by toxic waste, killed by the FBI, resurrected through the possession of another body, returned to his own body, thrown into hell, used for research, frozen cryogenically, thawed, blown into space, freed to continue his murder spree on Earth 2, returned to the present, faced off against Freddy Krueger of “Nightmare on Elm Street,” drowned again with him, and made to emerge from Crystal Lake with Freddy’s head, which winks.”    What could possibly be next?   And who could possibly care?

picture-1 Morning Light – A Disney documentary.   (For real?  Is Yogi Bear in it?  Wait…)   Encouraging and uplifiting story about teenagers in a sailboat race.  

 

picture-2 Madea Goes to Jail – I’ve yet to see any of Tyler Perry’s stuff, most of which stars Perry as Madea, an opinionated old woman.  I guess my ignorance says something about my race and class.   I don’t think watching this movie would change the fact that I am, indeed, a white boy.  

 

 

picture-3 What Goes Up – Hilary Duff sings, dances, does TV and even designs clothes.   And makes movies.  But does she do any of it well?   This feature, about a dead teacher the kids idolized and the visiting reporter they choose to take his place, suggests no.
