Chicago – Paramount Home Video has scheduled two waves of catalog titles making their debut on Blu-Ray for the holiday season and the first set hits this week, just in time for you to finish up your Christmas shopping.
There are some recent comedy hits, a highly lauded drama from last year, and a forgotten Samuel L. Jackson movie. It’s hard to imagine anyone out there looking to buy all six of these titles and schedule a Blu-Ray marathon in their own home, but it’s also easy to see someone in your family having one on their holiday wish list. All films are presented in 1080p High-Definition Widescreen and feature English 5.1 Dolby True HD audio tracks.

DVD Links: Release Dates | New Dvds | Reviews | RSS Feed I was not prepared for this week's DVD and Blu-ray list, primarily because I forgot not only were studios releasing titles today but also on the 19th and 21st in a final Christmas push. There are A Lot of Blu-ray titles in this week's edition as Paramount unleashes an onslaught of catalog titles as you will see right off the bat and then Criterion also takes their first nose dive into Blu-ray this week with a selection of four titles. Then you have the usual new releases which come on DVD as well as with Blu-ray counterparts. As usual, clicking on the Buy Now links will take you to Amazon and show you the selection of all the versions of each film you can buy. For example, with The Mummy movies not only will it link to the DVD and Blu-ray versions, »

DVD Links: Release Dates | New Dvds | Reviews | RSS Feed The Incredible Hulk I just reviewed the Blu-ray edition, which you can read right here, but suffice to say, I love this film and think it is one of the best comic book flicks I have ever seen. It is certainly better than Iron Man and second to The Dark Knight when it comes to summer 2009 superhero movies. It looks fantastic and has a thunderous soundtrack that will shake your room. The Blu-ray has a boat load of features and I would call it a must buy for any fan of straight-up entertaining flicks. Sure, it isn't as serious as The Dark Knight and doesn't have Robert Downey's wit, but in terms of films that describe "spectacle" this one fills the bill. James Bond on Blu-ray

Mark Schwahn is mixing television and music with three new deals.
The "One Tree Hill" creator has inked a two-year exclusive overall deal with CBS Paramount Network TV and a pact with CBS Records to launch his own imprint.
Additionally, Schwahn has inked a one-year agreement with Warner Bros. TV, which co-produces "Hill" with Tollin/Robbins Prods., to continue as executive producer and showrunner on the CW series, a major step towards a potential seventh-season pickup for the ensemble drama.
Under the pact with CBS Par TV, which begins in June, Schwahn will develop new series projects. That is a long way from his early days as a filmmaker who never considered a career in television until he hit a brick wall trying to get a feature script made for a basketball-themed drama set in high school. Brian Robbins, Mike Tollin and Joe Davola of Tollin/Robbins -- which produced two movies penned by Schwahn, »
