Required viewing from the week in DVD
, the art of jumping around on stuff, has given the action genre a shot in the arm in recent years, thanks, in part, to the futuristic flicks "District 13
" and its sequel, "District 13: Ultimatum
." Now all the high-jumping, bone-crushing action can be enjoyed in HD glory with the "District B13/"District 13: Ultimatum" Blu-ray 2-pack.
Is there any doubt that producer Luc Besson
," "The Transporter
") is the current king of the action genre?
Also in stores:
-- "G.I. Joe: Season 2.0
" -- which collects the episodes where Cobra combined the DNA of famous world conquerors to create Serpentor -- is approximately when sh** started to get weird for the Real American Heroes.
-- He who controls the spice, controls the universe. But he who owns "Dune
" on Blu-ray gets to see Sting
's space Speedo
in digital hi-def.
-- Heath Ledger
's final performance in Terry Gilliam'
s "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
" more than makes up for the fact that movie makes zero sense.
