People easily distracted by bright, shiny things should see Tim Burton's version of the Lewis Carroll classic, set when a grown-up Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to the rabbit hole where everything started.
"Alice in Wonderland"
$20 (DVD), $30 (Blu-ray)
People easily distracted by bright, shiny things should see Tim Burton's version of the Lewis Carroll classic, set when a grown-up Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to the rabbit hole where everything started. Helena Bonham Carter is great as the domineering Red Queen, and Johnny Depp is predictably zany as the Mad Hatter. Though it's popcorn entertainment through and through, this should be a good disc for zoning out on a rainy day. (LSD not included.)
"Aqua Teen Hunger Force - Volume Seven"
Since joining forces in 2000, Frylock, Meatwad and Master Shake have been through it all. This 11-episode collection includes more wacky adventures, as the oddball value-meal compadres battle the tooth fairy, a balloon Hitler and, of course, each other. There are plenty of laughs, still not much plot. The two-disc DVD includes the infamous live-action episode "The Last Last One Forever and Ever" and realistic cover art of Carl's chest.
"Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo/The Animal"
OK, so you're on an awful date that just won't end. Hints haven't worked. Neither has offering a lukewarm can of Genesee. For these worst-case scenarios, you've got one recourse: a DVD set containing nearly four straight hours of Rob Schneider. First he's a schlubby everyman gigolo prowling Europe, then a schlubby everyman surgical patient given transplant animal parts. Pop it in and consider your night saved.
