DVD of the week

Just picked up season 2 of the Chappelle Show since it was released this past Tuesday. Although I find most stand-up comedians very dull, I have to admit that Dave Chappelle is an exception. Go pick up this 3 disc DVD set. It's worth every penny and will keep you rolling on your stomach.

DVD of the week

Getting Any? by Takeshi Kitano. Considering that I've seen more than a few of Kitano's films, this one threw me in for a loop. The film is a slapstick comedy, about a goofy middle-aged man who is obsessed with the idea of having car sex. While pursuing his 'dream', he makes all the wrong choices and ends up in a number of crazy escapades. A very entertaining film by Mr. Kitano.

Game of the moment

Ball rolling madness from the PS2 game, Katamari Damacy. The sequel, We Love Katamari, will be out sometime this year so be on the lookout for it.

DVD of the week

An 8 minute comedy on how to eat sushi titled The Japanese Tradition: Sushi by Junji Kojima. Thanks to a film buddy of mine for exposing this short to me. Other than on the Best of Resfest Volume 3 DVD, I'm not sure if Kojima has a collective DVD of his works. It's something definitely worth looking into.

Game of the moment

Hot Shots Golf for the PSP. Picked it up this past week and it's pretty addicting. Try it out and see for yourself.

DVD of the week

After viewing Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown for the third time, I have to admit that it gets better and better. This may sound bias since I'm an Almodovar fan, but if you're into foreign film this is a must. Being one of Almodovar's earlier works, the film is filled with more humor and is a tad bit lighter on themes compared to more recent works such as La Mala Educacion and Hable con Ella. If you've only seen more previous works and you're in the mood for something lighter, check this out.
