I’m looking at the new releases for this week and then thinking, this is a weekend to stay home and watch a DVD.

1) Puss in Boots – It’s all about the boots.

2) Tower Heist – Still looks funny and better than the crap that’s coming out this week.

3) A very 3D Harold & Kumar Christmas – Could stay at #3. Immortals just looks so utterly horrible and NPH is hilarious.

4) In Time – Because even this film, which I know so little about, looks like it can do better than Immortals.

5) Immortals – Possibly a strong action flick might get some views. It looks like 300, only with less plot. Less plot than 300. Like that’s all that possible…
