Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of January 13th 2009
The saucy British show about teens is like sexy Degrassi meets My So Called Life. We’re fans from across the pond!
- “Tyler Perry’s Marriage Counselor”
Writer/Director Tyler Perry takes his stage play to the big screen.
- “Little Britain USA”
The kooky BBC characters have come to us! In their first season on HBO, comedians Matt Lucas and David Walliams have created a colorful portrait of America with a woman who strips for her dog, a disgruntled hospital receptionist, and an overweight Weight Watchers guru.
- “Tess of The D’Urbervilles”
That book you were forced to read in high school was turned into a BBC series back in the late nineties. Now, it’s finally available on DVD so the children of the future won’t have to rely on cliff notes. Catherine is totally obsessed!
- “My Bloody Valentine”
The 1981 horror flick gets re-released in time to give singles something scream about on February 14th.
- “My Best Friend’s Girl”
Dane Cook plays an a-hole (surprise, surprise), but the twist is this time his magic works on Kate Hudson, his best friend’s ex.
- “Patti Smith: Dream Of Life”
A documentary, 11 years in the making, follows one of the founding mothers of rock ‘n’ roll, the incomparable, inspirational, and totally bitchin’ Patti Smith.
- The Derek Truckers Band Already Free
Classic southern rock, like a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Down In The Flood,” might wash away you winter blues.
- Ravi Coltrane Blending Times
Son of the legendary John Coltrane, this jazz royal will court you with his own seductive sound — just ignore the awful album cover.
- Frost Experiments In Mass Appeal
Straying from the danceable beat they’re known for, Experiment In Mass Appeal is the Norwegian duo’s most emotional album yet, full of raging guitars and lonely vocals.
