Top 5 DVD Releases Of 2009
Each year seems to get better and better with more movies reaching the million mark, making it extremely hard to select the top 5 DVD releases of 2009. The top listing for 2009 seems to spread the gamut with the range from drama to science fiction and more. There are some producers who know what moviegoers want and produce mega hits year after year. We see a few of those here in the following feature hits:
- "Ice Age: Dawn of The Dinosaurs" Even though the final count couldn't be accurate at 5,360,240 DVDs sold, this amazingly cute and original production of Lori Forte and John C. Donkin's sequel to the original "Ice Age" is absolutely sensational. Returning Manny, Sid and Diego are once again joined by Ellie, Crash and Eddie and now, there's Buck. What next? Their next release should be exceptional as all previous ones have been.
- "Twilight" At a whopping 10,233,407 DVDs sold and still counting, for some reason man has an innate, never-ending unquenchable thirst for vampires and someone out there capitalizes on it every eon or so. The "Twilight" series has done it again. With the most gorgeous group of vampires around, not since "Dark Shadows" has there been more intrigue and lust for vampires.
- "Taken" Liam Neesom is one man that keeps you sitting on the edge of your seat the entire time he is on-screen and the action in "Taken" does not disappoint. From the minute this star enters the set, he is moving and moving and moving. The man is one source of pure energy. "Taken" has sold over 4,021,420 DVDs and Liam Neesom is still moving.
- "The Family That Preys" demonstrates the exceptional talent of screen actress and enchantress Kathy Bates. Tyler Perry has also selected a few of the best when he adds to his cast Alfre Woodard, Sanaa Lathan, Taraji P. Henson and up and coming Cole Hauser. The magnitude of this production has been underestimated with only 1 439,518 DVDs sold, it just hasn't been discovered yet.
- "Lakeview Terrace" is reverse discrimination at its peak and who better to demonstrate it than Samuel L. Jackson. The movie depicts what it means to be a biracial couple feeling the pang of racial hate as experienced by the white man. Samuel L. Jackson decides he just does not want a white man and his black wife living next door to him. He then begins to demonstrate how much he hates the fact they are married. Racism is not just a white man's game.
