So Kim Kardashian got engaged this week, which ignited an epidemic of déjà vu across the globe. Our DVD pick (a throwback to 1989) will also take you back. But first, here's what's brand spanking new at the theater:

On the Big Screen: "The Counselor"

Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, and Cameron Diaz star in a film that opens today. The movie is a prequel to "Weekend at Bernie's." Can't wait!

Ok...fine. That's not true at all. But with such an all-star cast, does it even matter what the movie's about? In reality, Michael Fassbender plays a corrupt lawyer (aka "the counselor") who signs on for a lil' freelance drug trafficking with Javier Bardem's character, Reiner. And by "lil'" we mean moving a truckload of cocaine from Colombia to Chicago.

As you can imagine, international drug trafficking schemes amongst friends never end well. »
