DVDuesday

Chris Gore is in Austin, Texas for the SXSW Film Festival, so there's no DVDuesday today, but if there were one, it would probably feature a bunch of new movie releases about the Apocalypse. So, without further ado, here's a glance at some of the greatest movies about the end of life as we know it.

ID4Independence Day - Although films like The Dark Knight have since eclipsed its box office draw, there has yet to be a movie in the past ten years that has overshadowed the excitement created by the first trailer for Independence Day. It was the first time that we all realized that special effects had no limit. While current popcorn flicks like Cloverfield fail to impress jaded audiences, this one left them dazzled and still does, if you look back at it. Plus, it cemented Will Smith's role as a Hollywood leading man. If it weren't for ID4, he wouldn't have gone on to such triumphs as Wild, Wild West, I Am Legend, Hancock, the first Men in Black.

The Day the Earth Stood Still (Original) - It's one of the few movies featuring an advanced race of extraterrestrials in which Earth doesn't get its ass kicked for two thirds of the film. The plot's basically the same as the remake's if you've seen it, only it relied more on suspense than special effects. An alien comes to earth representing a galactic federation who wants us to change our warring ways or face destruction. Of course, humanity, being the brutal species that it is, can't and nearly gets destroyed until one human shows the alien that we have the potential to evolve beyond the petty simians we are. It might sound like a cliche premise to you, but this was made in the 50s, so calling it trite is like calling Shakespeare unoriginal after enjoying all of the crappy books, shows and movies you've enjoyed based on his work. It's not fast paced and the dialogues a little cheesy, but it's still a classic and should be respected as such. Klaatu barada nikto.

DVDuesday Bonus Features: Paul RuddOn today's DVDuesday, Chris Gore will be reviewing Role Models, starring the immortal Paul Rudd. We wanted to take a moment in this column to recognize the good work he's done throughout his career, so if you wanted to have a Rudd Film Festival, you would be more than well-armed with fine material.

Clueless (1995) - Probably the first introduction most of the world had to Rudd's work, Paul played Josh, Alicia Silverstone's half brother, who ends up becoming her boyfriend at the end of the movie. Despite the strange incestuous implications of that event, Rudd is excellent as the Radiohead-loving conscience to Silverstone's Cher in the movie.

DVDuesday Bonus Features: Best Sex ComediesIt's Tuesday once again, which means that it's time for DVDUesday Bonus Features. On today's AOTS, Chris Gore will be talking about the epic Sex Drive, which got me thinking about the best of the sex comedies that there have been over the years, so I'm going to give you a guide to cinematic sexual hijinks, in case you want to do some further study.

The Last American Virgin (1982) - This story about a group of teenagers who are learning about life and sex, all while attempting to get laid, is one of the classics of the genre. There are lots of things that would never in a million years appear in a teenage comedy these days (the pursuit of cocaine, an abortion subplot, etc.), but those things make this stand out from the pack. Oh, and The Last American Virgin deserves to be on this list solely for the ending, which is one of the great "Huh?" moments in the history of film.
