Crank is a fun and rather entertaining flick even with the frenetic (though I know it’s in keeping with the adrenaline theme) direction, though works mostly for Jason Statham who does well even with some limited character development.
The Butterfly Effect isn’t a perfect movie but it does have subject matters that not many other films, especially mainstream ones, rarely tackle. The performances from an impressive cast are mostly good and while some of the sequences are a bit laughable, I found it to be a serviceable flick. The Blu-ray has a decent amount of features, and the audio/video transfers are impressive to make this worth picking up.
Paramount Home Entertainment has announced the date and released artwork for the road comedy, Road Trip starring Breckin Meyer, Seann William Scott, Amy Smart and Tom Green. This is the latest Best Buy exclusive with Paramount and will be available on May 1st (the Best Buy site says 5/15, however) and will include some features.

It’s a shame Columbus Circle wasn’t better as it has a good cast and, at its core, at least an interesting premise. Although the script does them no favors, I give a pass to the cast as they seem to struggle through stilted dialogue and contrived situations, especially a finale that flies in the face of what we watched before. Even so, I found this to be passable entertainment and enough for a quick watch on a weekend where there’s nothing else on.
“Robot Chicken” is easily one of the funniest shows on television and a personal favorite of mine. This fifth season, while not the strongest in its run, has some funny bits and like before, a great collection of guest voice talents. Seth Green and company also know how to package a home video release with plenty of features to justify the price given each episode is only 11-12 minutes long.
