Sorry this is late, but here's the DVD releases for Yesterday.

The Grudge 2
The original was a great, moody, suspenseful horror movie, so of course you knew there would be a sequel. I didn't waste my time with this one, so I can't tell you if it's any good, but probably not.

In my opinion this is the release of the week. This was one of my favorite movies of 2006 and I'm still upset that Ben Affleck didn't get an Academy Award Nomination for Best Actor. The story of one of the biggest mysteries in Hollywood History, the death of George Reeves, TV's Superman. Officially ruled a suicide, many claim that Reeves was murdered by any number of people, and this movie explores all of the possibilities. (Personally I find it hard to believe it was a suicide, because as far as I know most people committing Suicide don't miss several times before they shot themselves, and since there were several other bullet holes in the bedroom, I'm saying Murder.)
This movie features a wonderful extended cast, with some of my favorite character actors.
Special Features Include a commentary with the Director, Deleted Scenes, and 3 featurettes.
If you can only afford one movie this week, pick this one up.

Hellboy: Sword of Storms
The first of two animated Hellboy movies hitting DVD this year. Featuring the voices of the cast members of the Live Action movie. This one aired on Cartoon Network last year. Special Features include 5 separate featurettes and a discussion panel from the 2006 Comic Con.

The Science of Sleep
Director Michel Gondry (the upcoming Be Kind, Rewind and The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) comes this trippy movie starring Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal. The movie focuses on Stephane a man who lives in his own dream world. When Stephane meets his new neighbor Stephanie he falls head over heels in love and determines to win her over by showing her his dream world.

Flags Of Our Fathers
This was slated to be Director Clint Eastwood's big Oscar film of the year, but instead it's companion piece Letter from Iwo Jima won all the nominations. This big budget film follows the men who planted the flag in the no infamous photo as they return home to do a press tour.
If you only see one movie about Iwo Jima it should probably be the other one, but if you see 2 check this one out.

Cinderella III
Really there's already been one sequel? Enough Said.

A sweet film for the little girl in all of us. Or something like that.

Running with Scissors
Based on the best selling book, unfortunately this wasn't a best selling movie.

National Lampoon's TV the Movie
Stars Steve-O from Jackass, does anyone need to know anymore?

Coming This Week:
Hannibal Rising

Yet another in the line of sequels/prequels to The Silence of the Lambs. Seriously after Hannibal and Red Dragon do we need anymore Hannibal? (If you want to see another movie with Hannibal that was actually good go rent Manhunter the first movie based on Red Dragon) The movie has something to do with how Hannibal became the monster he is today. But is there anyone who still cares?

Starring: Gaspard Ulliel as Lecter, Rhys Ifans, and Li Gong.

Rated: R for strong grisly violent content and some language/sexual references.
