This Week in DVD is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy, Circuit City, and Fry’s.

Please don’t take the commentary on the movies and TV shows too seriously, as they’re meant not to be reviews but rather previews that include the general thoughts and ramblings of a twice-committed DVD addict. The categories represent solely the author’s intentions towards the DVDs at hand, and are in no way meant to be a reflection on what he thinks other people should rent or buy. So if he ends up putting a movie you like in the “Skip it” section without having seen it, please keep in mind that the time you could spend leaving a spiteful but ultimately futile comment could instead be used for more pleasant things in life. Like buying DVDs.

SWING VOTE
Despite his nay-sayers, I quite like Kevin Costner, but there’s no getting over the fact that this film has one of the most utterly ludicrous, far-fetched plots of any movie in the past year. One man’s vote controlling the entire presidential election? Please. This seems like one of those mildly entertaining yet entirely forgettable movies that you put on late at night to fall asleep to and then never bother finishing the next day.
Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: Commentary, “Inside the Campaign” featurette, and deleted/extended scenes.
