A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)

Five teenage friends living on one street all dream of a sinister man with a disfigured face, a frightening voice and a gardener’s glove with knives for fingers. But when one among them dies, they soon realize that what happens in their dreams happens for real and the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. Buried in their past is a debt that has just come due. To save themselves, they must plunge into the mind of the most twisted nightmare of all: Freddy Krueger. Jackie Earle Haley plays the legendary evildoer in this contemporary reimagining of the seminal horror classic.

Yeah, no way I was watching this one. Being a true fan of the original films I knew they would ruin it. Since I have yet to receive the screener, I'll stick with that opinion.

Splice Blu Ray Combo Pack

Superstar genetic engineers Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) specialize in splicing DNA from different animals to create incredible new hybrids. Now they want to use human DNA in a hybrid that could revolutionize science and medicine. But when the pharmaceutical company that funds their research forbids it, they secretly take their experiment underground – risking their careers to push the boundaries of science and serve their own curiosity and ambition. The result is Dren, an amazing, strangely beautiful creature of uncommon intelligence and unexpected physical developments. At first, Dren exceeds their wildest dreams. But as she grows and learns at an accelerated rate, her existence threatens to become their worst nightmare.

Isn't this just Species? And the girl was cuter in Species.

Human Target Season 1 on DVD and Blu Ray

DC Comics can give us normal chracters right next to the ones who wear capes and fly around for a living. One such charcater who has been a part of the DC roster for decades is Christopher Chance, also known as The Human Target. If someone is after you Chance is your man to make sure you are taken out of harm's way. With his support crew, Ops manager Winston (Chi McBride) and techno genius Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley) The bad guys do not stand a chance against The Human Target.

Two and a Half Men The Complete Seveth Season

I have to admit that I rarely catch this show and when I do, it's usually on syndication. Now in it's seventh season with a child actor who makes quite a bit of bank, it is still a really funny show. Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer have amazing Chemistry together. From what I understand this one will be around for quite some time.

Another in the series of Peanuts specials, He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown, tells the tale of a beagle who has become to much of a pain to be tolerated in the Peanuts neighborhood. Charlie Brown decides to send him back to Daisy Hill Puppy Farm for a refresher course in discipline.
Snoopy never makes it past Peppermint Patty's house where he revels in being waited on hand and foot. When Charlie Brown tries to bring him back, Snoopy refuses, but Peppermint Patty is sick of his attitude and puts him to work. Snoopy is about to learn that the grass isn;t always greener on the other side.
This, along with the other cartoon, Life Is A Circus, Charlie Brown are adequate Peanuts cartoons, but that isn't the reason you must own this disc.
The real reason is a little documentary included on the disc entitled; Snoopy's Home Ice: The Story of the Redwood Empire Ice Arena. This is a place that Charles Schultz considered his home away from home. He and his wife, Jean, built this for them all to skate in and it has become an institution in Santa Rosa every since. Generations of skaters have taken their fair share of spills in this wonderful ice arena and the documentary is full of never before seen snippets of Charles Schultz' life and how he has affected so many others lives outside the realm of his cartton strip. I think this is the reason for the purchase of this disc.
Sure, the cartoons are alright, but it's fascinating to see another facet of the man who brought so many people so much joy through the years in a completely different environment.
