I like it when new DVD releases are all over the place and offer up a taste of many genres. As you'll see, that's definitely what's going on this week. The undisputed heavy hitter is, of course, Guillermo del Toro's beautifully lensed Hellboy II: The Golden Army. While I hardly think it's a perfect film, it was surely a joy a watch so be sure to check that out. On that same note, Star Wars: Clone Wars is also out this week. anybody out there been watching the new CGI show? I've caught bits and pieces here and there but haven't formed much of an opinion yet. Then we've got Takashi Miike's Sukiyaki Western Django which, as a western fan and despite some mixed reviews, I've been dying to see.

On the indie front, The Flaming Lips' psychedelic Christmas On Mars is finally available on DVD this week along with David Mackenzie's Mister Foe (formerly Hallam Foe) and Paul Goldman's Suburban Mayhem.
