Buffy the Vampire Slayer - The Complete Series (Seasons 1-7) The TV deal of the week over at Amazon this week is Buffy the Vampire Slayer – The Complete Series DVD for only $70.99 (that’s 65% off the list price of $199.99).

Note, this deal is valid through Saturday, October 23, 2010 while supplies last.

This DVD box set contains all 7 seasons of the popular Joss Whedon television series which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as the titular vampire slayer along with Alyson Hannigan, Anthony Stewart Head, and Nicholas Brendon. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which ran from 1997 to 2003, also co-starred Eliza Dushku, Seth Green, James Marsters, and many more, as well as introduced the character of Angel (David Boreanaz), who eventually got his own spin-off show.

Math time: at $70.99, you’d be paying only $10.14 per season! That’s a steal, considering the box set is worth getting even at the original price.

DVD Review: Open Graves

Open GravesOpen Graves
DVD
Directed by Álvaro de Armiñán
Starring Eliza Dushku, Mike Vogel, Ethan Raines, Gary Piquer
Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Release date: February 23, 2010

After a storm washes off a beach party, a group of friends retreat indoors to play a board game with a mysterious past. Those brave enough to play just might be putting their lives at risk; those who lose definitely are. Roll the dice.

Erica (Eliza Dushku) is trying to ‘find herself’ by surfing and living in a cool lighthouse in Spain where she meets glamour photographer Tomas (Ethan Raines) and ‘bum’ Jason (Mike Vogel). Much to Jason’s delight, Erica comes to the party and she joins them to play Mamba. The party soon takes a tragic turn when one of their friends is killed on his way to town and the circumstances of his death sound just like the game promised. Erica and Mike must find a way to stop the game’s curse and keep it from the clutches of Detective Izar.

Open Graves was written by the father/son team of Bruce A. Taylor and Roderick Taylor, whose most recent screen work was the Jodie Foster-starring The Brave One, directed by the excellent Neil Jordan. First-time director Álvaro de Armiñán has set and filmed much of the movie on location in Spain having picked some gorgeous locations, lots of old decrepit buildings, and in that respect it looks like a European horror movie which added to the overall eerie feel.

Joss Whedon & Eliza Dushku

It looks as if Dollhouse fans won’t have to wait too long after the show was canceled to see the team behind their favorite show getting back together for some more fun. According to star Eliza Dushku, she and writer/creator Joss Whedon will be re-teaming soon for a feature film.

Dushku was asked by Hollywood Life about her rumored part in Ghostbusters 3, which she denied as false (so far) a long time ago on her Twitter account, but is still listed on IMDB for some reason. The conversation then moved on to what was next for the actress, which lead to her reveal of another possible collaboration with Whedon.

Another Valiant Joss Whedon Effort Fallen: Fox Cancels ‘Dollhouse’

Dollhouse

From the very moment that Joss Whedon‘s latest show, Dollhouse, debuted on Fox, people wondered how long it would be before the show was canceled. This is the crystal example of expectations when it comes to fan-favorite shows on the network, and it is really quite unfortunate. However, to many shocked eyes, the show beamed through its freshman season, gaining a solid core of fans along the way; and even more surprisingly, was able to acquire its very own second season order.

Sadly, on this day, the news is much more grim. It has been confirmed that Twentieth Century Fox has officially canceled Dollhouse, cutting off its head at around the half-way mark of its sophomore effort. This will surely infuriate the show’s many fans, especially if those fans were also lovers of Dollhouse‘s older brother, Firefly, which wasn’t even able to finish one season before the axe was dropped. Fox still hears an undying plea from the fans to bring back that show, even five years later…so expect fans of Dollhouse to fight the same fight.

Game Review: ‘WET’
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

Wet Xbox 360WET
ESRB Rating: M for Mature
Platform: Xbox 360
Developer: A2M (Artificial Mind and Movement)
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Release Date: September 15, 2009

The new game from publisher Bethesda — the brilliant developers of classics like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3 — and developer A2M, WET is a game that immediately grabs your eye when you see it. Its look of pure Grindhouse-esq exploitation cinema of the 70s leads you to believe that you’re about to play a Quentin Tarantino movie, and whether you ultimately like the game or not, that alone is worth giving it a fair go.

WET follows Rubi Malone (Eliza Dushku), a bad-ass problem solver who gets what needs to be done, done…so long as the price is right. The game opens with her chasing down a man who steals what she was paid to acquire, which leads to an epic chase right off the gun that ends in a freeway car chase that would bring a tear to the eye of Michael Bay. As it turns out, the item she was paid to retrieve is a human heart that would save the man who hired you’s father. A year later, this man (Malcolm McDowell) comes back to thank her for the heart, and to hire her for another job: to find and bring back his AWOL son. This job sets off a chain of events that are a little too spoilery to share here, but let us just say that Rubi isn’t thrilled about how things go, and many, many, many, many people die because of it.

When you play this one, fair warning to all: do not expect a great storyline with complex characters and situations. No, this game isn’t made to be that at all; it is made to be a stylistic action game where you rampage your way through an unbelievable amount of people to get to the bottom of things. One might think this would quickly come repetitive, and they would be right at some points. But for some strange reason, even though it is repetitive at times, it never became boring. The reason is most likely in the variety of methods to accomplish each situation. Considering that Rubi is one of the deadliest women ever seen this side of Kill Bill‘s the Bride, the ways to end someone standing in your way’s life are bountiful.

Rumor-Busting: Eliza Dushku & Alyssa Milano Not In ‘Ghostbusters 3’

Ghostbusters

The LA Times was able to speak to Dan Aykroyd recently and many good bits of information in regards to Ghostbusters 3 came of it.

One of these bits was that not one, but maybe even two females might be joining the team of new Ghostbuster recruits, and Aykroyd pegged Eliza Dushku and Alyssa Milano as two he would love to see take up the parts. Aykroyd simply states “I think they’re amazing, and I’m excited about the whole idea of getting this done,” so by no means did he say that they were in it, just that they were great choices — especially with Milano having voiced a part in the upcoming video game.

Well, apparently this made its way around the web pretty quickly, and had many thinking that the two lovely ladies were going to be in the movie, and unfortunately, that’s not the case…yet. Via their Twitter accounts, both Dushku and Milano denied the reports. This is definitely not to say something won’t come around in the future, but for now, they’re both unaware of anything happening.

Geeks of Doom Invade New York Comic Con 2009

Joss Whedon previewed his new television show Dollhouse to a crowd of enthusiastic fans at New York Comic Con‘s first big Sunday panel.

Dollhouse peers into the life of Echo (played by Eliza Dushku), a human “doll” who takes on a new personality to perform missions for an underground criminal organization and is then mind-wiped after completion. When Echo starts to put together bits and pieces from past missions, she begins a search for her own self identity.

Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica) co-stars as Paul, an FBI special agent who discovers the underground “dollhouse” facility when Echo begins to regain memories from her previous identities.
