Another great week for new DVD releases

Another great week for new DVD releases

'The Bourne Legacy' and 'Ted' are among the choices.

Just in time for some of your holiday vacation movie watching pleasure: A slew of great new DVD releases are on tap this week, including one of the year's best comedies, a spy thriller sequel and an animated sequel that kids and adults will probably love.

The new DVD and Blu-ray releases this week include The Bourne Legacy (starring Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross), Ted and Ice Age: Continental Drift. See? I call that a banner DVD release week!

I've seen two of the three films I just mentioned: Ice Age: Continental Drift and Ted, and both were great. Let me make this crystal clear though: Ted is an extremely raunchy, totally offensive and completely politically incorrect movie. Seriously, this is not a movie for the kids and call be a prude if you want, but I'd keep the tweens away from it as well. For the rest of us, it's funny as...well, you get the idea.

Ice Age: Continental Drift is a cute movie. If you like the other Ice Age films, you'll like this one too. It is what it is -- an entertaining animated movie for children. I thought it was cute, and I got dragged to it by my eight-year-old neighbor. Get this one for the kiddos, especially if they're driving you nuts over the holidays.

Finally, last but certainly not least, the next chapter in the Bourne film franchise, The Bourne Legacy, is also new on DVD this week. I'll be honest, I loved the three Matt Damon Bourne movies so much, I almost wish they'd left well enough alone. Friends offered up mixed reviews: Some loved it, and some thought it was just okay. No one said they hated it, so take that for what it's worth. I'll see it, though I stayed away from it in theaters.

Okay movie freaks, what will you be seeing next?
