A weekly article highlighting my favorite releases of the week from all media (music, movies, books, video games)
Thirst – The latest from one of my favorite directors (see #4 on this list) South Korea’s Park Chan-Wook is really a no brainer. The vampire genre is really hitting a frenzy (granted I am not really part of this) what better time for the brilliant director Park Chan-Wook to release a gritty, darkly humorous love story centered around vampires. Expect grizzly violence, beautiful cinimatography and an enthrawling story and you will not be dissappointed at all.
Real Estate – S/T The debut full lenght from a Real Estate whom we have been pretty excited about for some time now (see my track by track review) is sure to find some new fans with their hazed out pop sound. With the inclusion of some of the best songs off their 7″ releases such as Black Lake and Fake Blues as well as a some new gems this cd is a nice way to ease youself into the lulls of winter, with one last blast of summer. If you have any questions about their sound, download “Snow Days” and enjoy!
God of War Collection (PS3) Two amazing games originally for the PS2, bumped up to HD and collected on one disc for the PS3 all to get our saliva flowing for the release of God of War 3 next year. You won’t get any complaints here especially since my PS3 is one of the non backwards compatible modles I will jump at the opportunity to own these games especially at the $40 price point. With bigger titles such as Assasins Creed 2 and Left For Dead 2 released this week I still think this is the title to buy.
