Monday:
The Wrestler (Very good movie. Tomei is so damn hot.)
WWE: Monday Night Raw (Sucked. Again.)

Wednesday:
Intolerable Cruelty (I know alot of people hate on this film, but I like it.)
Tokyo Gore Police (Not as good as Machine Girl, but still very good)
While She Was Out (Just terrible. Ugh.)

Thursday:
Defiance (Typical Edward Zwick flick. Not awful, but far from great. Good story, though.)

Friday:
Dead Presidents (Recorded this on MAXHD. Haven't seen it since it was out in theaters. I still enjoyed it. Still the only enjoyable Chris Tucker performance)
Friday Night Smackdown (eh..)

Saturday:
O, Brother Where Art Thou? (EncoreHD played it, figured fuck it. Like this film.)

Sunday:
Eagles Vs. Vikings (E. A. G. L. E. S. Eagles!)
Jurassic Park (recorded off of MAXHD. Other than your typical amount of pixelation, the transfer looked pretty good. Detail in the background was noticeable, as was the beads of sweat on Sam Neil's upper lip.)

Tuesday thru Friday:
Arrested Development: Season Two (just because...)

Friday thru Sunday:
Roswell: Season Three (Terrific end to a very good show)

Oh, sorry. Didn't see this. I had it pre-ordered from another site (not Amazon) and for some reason got it early. Which is weird, considering I usually never get this type of stuff early.

The film, itself, is not as good as "Machine Girl" but most definitely ups the ante in gore. Including a guy who gets his legs cut off, and uses the bloodspray to launch himself through the air...

Extras suck though. Just the trailer.
