WB Holiday 2011 ~~For Him~~ Gift Guide


Synopsis:
For Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day), the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust.  Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few too many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers....permanently.  There's only one problem: even the best-laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.

 Synopsis:
Mysterious mer-man Mark Harris washed ashore on the nation's TVs in early '77 and quickly became a breakout hero.  America fell hard for the Atlantean amnesiac, generating big ratings for the Man from Atlantis pilot movie and its three subsequent follow-up TV movies.  Starring newcomer Patrick Duffy and overseen by Robert Justman (Adventures of Superman, Star Trek, Then Came Bronson, Probe/Search), the original TV movies easily swim, between the parallel genres of Science Fiction and Super-Heroics, creating a fantasy that is still fun and fresh today.  This 2 disc collection contains all 4 TV movies.  Also stars Belinda Montgomery.

 “Four seasons in, it is still laugh-out-loud funny.  Every episode, every week” USA Today’s Robert Bianco says about the hit series The Big Bang Theory. 
On the rebound from Penny, Leonard falls into the arms of Raj’s sister Priya.  Sheldon gets a girlfriend, or rather a friend who is a girl: Amy, a dour neurobiologist who declares herself besties with Penny.  Howard and Bernadette heat up.  And so do Raj and Bernadette (at least in Raj’s Bollywood daydream).  All in the furtherance of award-winning genius comedy.

Orson Welles’ masterwork (#1 in the American Film Institute’s list of Best American Movies) dazzles anew in a superb 70th-Anniversary digital transfer.  It’s grand entertainment, sharply acted (starring many of Welles’ Mercury Players on the road to thriving film careers) and directed with inspired visual flair.  Chronicling the stormy life of a influential publishing tycoon, the Best Original Screenplay Academy Award winner (1941) is rooted in themes of power, corruption, vanity - the American Dream lost in the mystery of a dying man’s last word: “Rosebud”
