New on DVD
Fame - We all have dreams of making it big someday. I mean look at those kids on a little show called “American Idol.” This is the one that made making it big look easy. When you’re going to a special school for the performing arts, easy might not be the word you will be looking for. With this new class of students, they all think they have what it takes to make it in the big time. Some specialize in dance, acting, or singing. Whatever their area, they will have to prove to the faculty they can do what they say. Do they have the chops to make it? Sources tell me that a sequel may be in the works and you can catch the first two seasons of the original TV show on DVD on stores now.
The Hurt Locker - It’s always said you never want to take your work home with you or leave your work at work. These guys don’t really do that. Based on real life accounts, Sergeant Bill James (Jeremy Renner) is a member of the EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) crew and they work in Iraq taking out land mines and unexploded bombs just to name a few. Not an easy job when you’re also in danger from things like snipers and drive by shootings.. They never want to go to the “Hurt Locker,” which is that they refer as losing their lives. James and his men work very hard to make it safe for the Army and all of the people around them. Can they do the job and stay out of “The Hurt Locker?” Another movie set in the same place is “The Green Zone” starring Matt Damon. Damon plays a soldier stationed overseas who becomes aware of some espionage going on and gets the blame. Now he has to find a way to clear his name and this movie explodes into theaters soon.
