Monsters Vs. Aliens was released on DVD last week–it comes jam-packed with extras including a whole other DVD called B.O.B.’s Big Break that chronicles an attempted escape by the captive monsters pre-Susan era. The visuals are stunning but the story leaves a little to be desired–style wins out over substance on this one, but it’s so nice to look at you almost don’t mind the tedious meandering story.
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is another hot DVD release that showcases the trademark bro stylings of Matthew McConaughey. The movie mirrors the classic Charles Dickens tale, A Christmas Carol and shows McConaughey’s Connor Mead the error of his womanizing ways. The story is formulaic but if you like McConaughey, you’ll enjoy this vehicle for his familiar boyish arrogance.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past takes the traditional concept of A Christmas Carol and adds a modern spin. Like Scrooge, Connor Mead (Matthew McConaughey) travels into the past, present and future, accompanied by three ghosts. And over the course of the film, he learns that if he doesn’t make a lifestyle change, he’ll die alone and unwanted. But unlike Scrooge, Connor’s biggest problem is centered around the countless women in his life, namely his first and only love, Jenny (Jennifer Garner).
This film is decent and entertaining, but easily forgettable.
