So, with the holidays coming up, we have a good variety of releases for all movie lovers out there!

To start with, we have a movie full of minions.  Tiny yellow minions.  Despicable Me 2 with Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig.  Great reviews on this sequel – if you liked the original, and/or have any kid-gift-giving to do, this might be the pick of the week.

For all those car aficionados out there, Fast and Furious 6 comes out as well.  I remember thinking the 1st was ok, the follow up not good, but 5 was great – and I’m excited to see this one.  Sadly, among the cast of Vin Diesel and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson we also get the last film the recently departed Paul Walker was in (RIP).

For all those Doctor Who fans out there, we get Doctor Who: Day of the Doctor in all formats, including 3D!

Mary Poppins gets another releases, in a 50th Anniversary Edition.  If you don’t own this classic, now is your chance!  Another classic is the 25th anniversary edition of Big (with Tom Hanks).


Finally, and my favorite, the finale season (sadly) of my all-time favorite show.  Ever.  Futurama Volume 8 comes out (which I guess is season 8… or 9… or 10… I don’t even know how that ended up splitting).  This season was one of their best, with some very clever and hilarious episodes… not to mention some heartwarming ones.  The series finale was one of the best episodes the show had ever had!  If you know anyone who likes this show, this is a must.

That’s it for the week!
