DVD Kisses: The Latest DVD Release for Tuesday, 12/02/08 


Get ready for an exciting week for DVD buying and renting. This past summer's biggest hits come to DVD this week, and an all-time classic is debuting on BLU-RAY.

First, we have "Wanted." Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy star in this comic book thriller -- One of my favorites from last summer. Lots of features on the making of this R-rated film are included on the two disc DVD and BLU-RAY versions.

Another one of my favorites from last summer, "The Chronicles of Narnia" sequel "Prince Caspian" arrives on DVD. Bloopers, as
well as behind the scenes features, are included in this triple DVD set.

The comedy "Stepbrothers" also arrives on DVD this week. Will Ferrel and John C. Reilly try to live under one roof as...stepbrothers. Look for this one in R and unrated versions on DVD.

It's not as great as the TV series but Mulder and Scully reunite for a second "X-Files" movie called "I Want to Believe." Bloopers and deleted scenes are among the bonus features for this one.

And one of the best movies ever made arrives on BLU-RAY! "Casablanca" is being released in an ultimate collector's edition that includes among other things, a "Casablanca" passport case.
