​There's A Smaug Alert For This Week's Video Releases

Yeah, I know it's not pronounced that way. But it was either this or "It's the Desolation of This Week's DVD and Blu-ray releases!" and I thought this was the less awful of the two options.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

I don't believe there's any weird distribution or exclusion of extras, so buy whatever version you want; the only thing special about the limited edition is that it comes with Erebor bookends. Meanwhile, I still can't believe this thing is going to have an Extended Edition later.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Same chills, new characters. Do you think if the filmmakers knew they were creating a franchise that could churn out sequels they'd have named the first movie something better than Paranormal Activity?

Lizzie Borden Took an Ax

The "Lifetime Original Movie" starring Christina Ricci as the infamous serial killer.

The Bamboo Saucer

A very strange 1968 movie about a secret American strike force racing to find a crashed UFO in China before Russian troops get to it.

Lust of the Dead 3

"After giving birth to a zombie baby, Momoko has lost her sanity, and is being worshipped as a modern-age Virgin Mary in the Akiba Empire. Her friend Kanae, a nurse, is trying desperately to find the way to rescue her friend… A tribute to zombie movie master George A. Romero!" I have my doubts about this.

Zero Charisma

Classic anti-social nerd battles new hipster nerd for the soul of their gaming group. Saving throws are not made.
