The Dark Knight
I'm so tempted to just begin and end with The Dark Knight. Even stacked against a myriad of films, this sucker would hold up. In this case, Batman picked the perfect time to slide his way onto DVD shelves -- nothing else comes close to the power of Heath Ledger's Joker surrounded by the likes of Bale, Eckhart, Gyllenhaal, and Oldman. I doubt I need to extol the virtues of this film, so I'll just say: BUY IT,as a single-disc, double-disc, limited edition, or Blu-ray. Click here for all the details.
Horton Hears a Who!
But ... if you want something a bit more family oriented, Horton is the way to go. This new CG feature, based on the classic Dr. Seuss tale, was a stunning collection of famous comedic voices attached -- Jim Carrey, Steve Carell, Carol Burnett, Will Arnett, Seth Rogen, Dan Fogler, Isla Fisher, Jonah Hill and Amy Poehler. Best of all -- it doesn't suck like the Grinch remake or that Cat in the Hat, as Jeffrey M. Anderson reviewed. Buy It on DVD or Blu-ray.
Note: Extreme Movie came out December 5. Do I need to even say: SKIP IT?
