The Chronicles of Narnia - Spring 2006

Some time within the two month period of Spring 2006 (no official release date), you'll be able to snag your grubby little mittens on a single disc edition and/or a double disc collector's edition of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, The Wardrobe and Two Turntables and a Microphone. If you thought the release date was vague, so are the extras, which also weren't released. Check back as we'll be updating this column with the officials specs for each release.

Get Rich or Die Tryin' - March 28

Rockefeller? Got rich. Hugh Hefner? Got rich. Fiddy Cent? Got rich! Tupac? Eh, died tryin'. Frenchy from Goodfellas? Died tryin'! Woops! Sometimes you make it, and sometimes you get taken out tryin' to make it. Or something. Was that the moral of this flick? Who cares. Tell your little brother to stop celebrating the "thug-life" and pack up the bowl and pick up a book. No specs have been released yet.

V.I.P. (S1) - March 14

One of my favorite guilty pleasure shows of all time easily. And I'm in the minority because I hate hate hate Pamela Anderson and her bowling ball boobies (in appearance and substance). Something about the writing, the cheesy stunts and the unbelievably adorable, short cropped brunette who appeared on the show won me over. Whatever, get over it.
