Although "Survival of the Dead" is a marginal film, that hasn't stopped Magnet from packing the upcoming DVD with a ton of enticing extras. Fine and dandy, but no thanks.

If you've ever wondered what your favorite Star Wars characters would look like as monsters, your dreams have been answered. My inner nerd isn't sure if this is insanely cool or outrageously blasphemous.

I can hear the collective groan gathering on the horizon, but I'm going to report on this, anyway. "The Grudge: White Ghost" and "The Grudge: Black Ghost", the latest installments in the long-running series, is headed to Region 2 DVD on April 19th. Who knows? It might be good. I'm just kidding.
