Okay, I got a little freaked out yesterday, and I’m trying to relax. Technically, the Fordpocalypse is still down the road a ways — he won’t be installed until December, and he’ll have to rebuild a lot of bridges before getting to implement any of his stupid, blinkered policies. It’s gonna be okay, folks.
And there is joy to be had in the world this week, particularly if you own a Blu-ray player. Check out this week’s MSN DVD column, which celebrates the magnificence of Fox’s splendid new “Alien Anthology” and Universal’s 25th anniversary edition of the “Back to the Future” trilogy. If you’re a fan of either series — and lord knows I am — you’re going to want to call in sick, roll up your sleeves and spend entire days digging around within.
Don’t have a Blu-ray player? Well, the “Back to the Future” set is also available in SD, but let’s look at the more pressing question: Why don’t you have a Blu-ray player? You can get the “Alien” movies on Blu-ray now!
