Another long work day, but since today was Tuesday, I'm gonna give you a rundown of the interesting DVD releases for the week.

Cool World
This one has Brad Pitt and Gabriel Byrne. It's about a cartoonist who gets sucked into the fictional world he's created. Sound familiar? Yeah, it's like an early draft of Monkeybone, which was based on an actual comic book. Weird.

Dumb And Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd
If you're a fan of stupid comedy, this is probably your bag. I haven't seen it, so I won't judge.

The FW Murnau Collection
If you don't know who he is, you wouldn't be interested. For those who do, this seems to be a pretty nice set, the SRP is $120, but if you can find it for under a hundred, it may be worth picking up...unless you own them already.

In what seems to be the 18th release of this on DVD, this includes some added features possibly worth checking out. One of the few Stone films I actually like.

King Of The Hill: The Complete Second Season
It's not the Simpsons or Family Guy, but it still entertains and delivers a few serious messages along the way.

Lilo & Stitch's Island Of Adventures Game
Recommended for those with kids, this is sure to entertain. It's a Movie/Board Game combination, and can actually be pretty funny at times.

Pumping Iron
The 25th anniversary of the documentary, the disc contains some special features, but I don't think they have the Hans and Frans skits from SNL on there, too bad.

Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines
Hmmm....two Arnold movies in the same week, who would've thought this 80's trend would make a comeback? Rent before buying this folks, and only if you're a fan of the series. Personally I think it's the best yet.

The Trial Of Lee Harvey Oswald
This "What If?" story of Oswalds trial may be worth the price of admission for JFK theorists.

Avoid like the plague:

Three's Company: Season One
Why pay for a crappy show that Nick at Nite airs 8 times a day anyway?

That's it for today, I'll be back in the A.M. to tell you a little bit about a graphic novel called Blankets...hopefully.
