Freakonomics The Movie, Buried, Takers on DVD Tuesday 1/18/11

What’s on DVD this Tuesday, January 18, 2011?
But first some quick news…

Starting today, DVD Tuesday will no longer be “What To Netflix this Tuesday”*, due to the fact that Netflix no longer allows their subscriber to rent certain movies on the day they are release. Instead, Netflix has a contract with several movie companies where they make us wait 28 days before allowing us, (the subscriber) to rent those titles that came out 28 days ago.

Anyways, I won’t bore you with the details I’m sure you’ve all heard about it, if not click the link above. For those of you that love movies and look forward to when they are release so you can get them from Blockbuster or buy them from Best Buy, I’ll still keep you posted on DVD Tuesday.

Freakonomics The Movie

I read the book but haven’t watched the movie yet. If you like The Tipping Point, Outliers or any of Malcolm Gladwell’s books you’ll enjoy Freakonomics. This is that kinda book that makes you think, say ahh a few times and read again. I’m sure the movie is just as great, so if you don’t like to read, get that DVD. (Buy it from Amazon)


I’ve heard this movie is good and someone on twitter compared it to 127 hours. I watched 127 hours and that movie was good. Here’s a little product review:

Paul Conroy is not ready to die. But when he wakes up six feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Buried with only a cell phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited. (Buy it from Amazon)


Did not see or hear anything about Takers, but I kinda want to see it. It looks like it has a lot of action, based on the previews. Did you anyone see it?! Let’s see what the product review says:

This high-stakes action thriller stars Matt Dillon, Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Jay Hernandez, Michael Ealy and Tip “T.I.” Harris. After pulling off a spectacular series of brilliantly planned bank robberies, a notorious team of professional criminals attempts one last heist, a once-in-a-lifetime job with a $25 million payoff. (Buy it from Amazon)

So which ones have you watched or are planning on watching this week?!

    I had NO idea and although I am a Netflix subscriber, I don't do a good job of watching the movies when they arrive anyway. By the time I go on to the site to add movies to my queue, they're way beyond the "NEW RELEASES" span. ;-)

    Thanks for the info, I shared it with other buffs though.
