The Cinematic Katzenjammer: DVD Court: Oct 23

Monday

DVD Court: Oct 23

This week, we put a handful of films on trial. As The Jury, we recommend what should happen to a particular DVD released today. Voting Burn It, Skip It, Rent It, or Buy It, we come together to deliver a verdict and hope to help you decide what to watch or avoid. This time, we've added a couple of new jurors to the list, leaving just two spots open to bring us to a total of 12 Angry Men (and Women). DVD Court is now in session. *dun dun*

A family tradition of mine is to stand over a fire pit and drop Madea movies into the warm, embracing flames. I've never actually done that, and I probably never will, but you'll never know that.

Haha. I'd love to participate myself but that would mean buying copies of the movies in order to burn. Sure, we could steal them but on the off chance I get caught, it's kind of the last thing I'd want to end up in jail for. Could only imagine the ridicule in jail. "Ohh that boy he done bad. He snatched up all dem Tyler Puurrry movies".

Yeah, no thanks.

I'm gonna try to post some reviews next time so my opinions wouldn't look like predictions made by a psychic ^^

I prefer believing I'm a psychic

Fixed!

I only had one review. And yes Andy, good call.

Ugh. Skip all of these. Except Madea. I agree on that one - Burn it!

If you're still in need of jurors let me know, hubby manages a video store so I can get first dibs on new releases =)

I'll take a look at your blog!

I'd say count me in, but your release schedule doesn't necessarily jive with mine! This is a good list. Instead of burning each new Madea film, why don't we just burn Tyler Perry? (note to his lawyers: the preceding statement was for comedy purposes only. I do not condone murder by immolation. Firing squad, on the other hand...)

I absolutely agree. Or at least bar him from making anymore films. Even non-Madea ones.
