While none of the releases this week are overly exciting, there are still several new DVD’s worth checking out. The biggest release of the week is the found-footage party film Project X. While the film was slammed by most critics, it was a financial success and I actually found it to be a fairly fun film, as long as you are able to get off your high horse and have a good time. Also out this week is the Jennifer Anniston/Paul Rudd comedy Wanderlust, The Duplass Brother’s latest Jeff Who Lives at Home and Big Miracle starring Drew Barrymore. If you’re in the mood for something other than a comedy, you may be interested in Seeking Justice starring Nicholas Cage. New TV shows that are being released on DVD this week include the second season of Louie, the first season of Wilfred and the first season of Showtime’s Web Therapy.

 

This weeks batch of new video games seem to be focusing on children, but there may be something for adults to enjoy also. You may be interested in checking out Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, or Brave, which is based on the upcoming Pixar film of the same name. Also out this week is Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Gods and Kings for the PC.

 

The biggest album release of the week is Justin Bieber’s Believe. This is his third full length studio album after 2011’s Under the Mistletoe. If Justin Bieber isn’t your thing, you will probably much more interested in Oceania by The Smashing Pumpkins or Cabin by the Sea by The Dirty Heads. Also out this week is Kenny Chesney’s Welcome to the Fishbowl and the uniquely titled The Idler Wheel is Wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do by Fiona Apple.
