Not much of note coming on DVD/Blu-Ray this week. In fact, it looks pretty weak so if you want a break, this is the week for it. The short list includes these titles of interest:

In the Realm of the Senses - A controversial movie it its day, this is a Japanese film with copious amounts of nudity and sex, which according to the actors involved, was not faked. Worth a rental for the curious.
Star Trek Season 1 - The original series comes to Blu-Ray finally. Advance reviews say this set is spectacular on Blu-Ray. Problem is that there have been three different releases of this over the years, so is it worth yet another double-dip? The sucker that I am, the answer is yes.
Hotel for Dogs - Cute dogs for the kids to watch I suppose.

    JCVD is supposed to be an odd lesser-known hit with Jean-Claude Van Damme providing a Mickey Rourke-rivalling performance. If it becomes available on Xbox Live I may give it a rental.

    Added blu-ray Star Trek to the Netflix queue but it looks like they're not expecting it for another month.

    I may rent The Da Vinci Code to see what the hub-bub was all about...

    I'll save you the trouble, Rosebud was Da Vinci's sled.

    I don't think there was ever a hub-bub about the movie, which has a 24% rating at Rotten Tomatoes. The book, on the other hand, is at least good enough for a fun popcorn read.
