This Week on HD DVD and Blu-ray: October 16, 2007

Transformers HD DVDAs the autumn season pulls the coats from our closets, warms our chocolate beverages, and turns our leaves from a verdant green to a rusty orange, the movie studios give us another reason to spend a comfy evening at home: summer blockbusters on DVD. And what better way to view these visual—if not always plausible—delights than in high definition?

The coveted two-disc special edition of Transformers releases this week on HD DVD, much to the chagrin of Blu-ray loyalists; without a major exclusive release, they’ll simply have to make do with some mediocre thrillers.

But aside from the inferior cinematic fare, the first and second volumes of Showtime’s Masters of Horror series is out just in time for Halloween. The anthology show gives modern horror directors a full hour to play without the restrictions of an MPAA rating or television censorship. Although it failed to garner much critical acclaim, the show ended up being quite successful and achieved what some could perceive to be cult status.

Check out the full list of high-def releases after the jump.

Box Office Breakdown:  Almighty Only Does Alrighty

Evan Almighty

Question: When is being the #1 movie just not enough? (Hint:  You have three chances to answer this question correctly).

Answer(s):

  1. When the critics don’t really have anything good to say about you
  2. When you made less than 1/2 of what your predecessor did on opening weekend
  3. When it cost over $175 million just to create you

Apparently having God on your side doesn’t guarantee you heavenly box office numbers.  Evan Almighty, the follow-up to 2003’s Bruce Almighty, failed to bring in a large congregation this past weekend.  Although it did better than the rest of the flock, it’s $32 million take paled in comparison to Bruce’s $68 million opening.  And then there’s that glaring $175 million bill…

Of course, we shouldn’t feel so badly about Steve Carell’s career.  I have a feeling that God is providing for him in other ways.

Jolie Dishes on Career, Family, and Brad

Angelina Jolie recently sat down with Marie Claire and Esquire magazines to talk about her life and the recent rumors that have cast suspicion on her happy relationship with Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt. Jolie told her interviewer that Pitt is often the more cautious and health-conscious one in the couple, providing a staying influence when Angelina wanted to walk around the property she purchased in Cambodia (which had to be de-mined for safety). Angelina also took the time to de-bunk break-up rumors that have surrounded her well-publicized relationship with , saying the two of them have reached their “comfort zone.” She says that right now, the two of them are very focused on the children (“changing diapers” – direct quote) and have little time for the reports that say they’re heading for Splitsville. They spend most of their time at home and plan to have even more time together in their “later years.”
