Lost – The Complete Collection
Well, this TV show is finally over and I never watched anything beyond the fourth season. I was just sort of over it. “Oh, hey! Look! A boat!” Yeah, seen one of those before. “Lost” just became mundane and one giant gimmick. Oh well.

The Back-Up Plan
Here’s the prequel to The Switch. This one made $37 million and opened with $4 million more than The Switch though. Sort of surprising J-Lo and Alex O’Loughlin can pull in better numbers than Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman.

The Square
This was a decent movie (my review), but at the best I’d say it’s worth a rental.

Survival of the Dead
Zombies, along with vampires, appear to be a couple of horror categories that will never die and George A. Romero has exploited that fact more than any other filmmaker I can name. Has anyone else stuck so closely to one kind of film throughout their career the way Romero has?

The Simpsons: The 13th Season
Thirteen seasons is a lot, especially for a show I never hear anyone talking about anymore. Who still watches this show and are they buying the season sets? Has it simply become habit?

Dorian Gray
This film looked decent, though it never got a domestic theatrical release despite the fact it features Colin Firth and Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) in the title role. I’ll probably add this one to the NetFlix queue.
