New DVD Releases

New DVD Releases - It’s a quiet week for new DVD releases, but there are a couple of gems hidden in the pack. First off is Resident Evil: Afterlife. Milla Jovovich stars in this fourth installment of the popular series which is based on a video game. Ali Larter, Wentworth Miller and Boris Kodjoe all join in to help stop a virus that turns people into zombies. If that’s not enough for you, then imagine it in 3-D!

If you’ve got a 3-D TV at home, pick up the Blu-ray version and watch the action just pop off the screen. No 3-D TV? No problem. You can still watch it in regular Blu-ray or on DVD. Behind the scenes features will give you a closer look at how the film was made, and you won’t want to miss the zombie outtakes.

Archer: Season 1 is also new on DVD this week, and it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. This spy series may be animated, but it’s not for the kiddies. Imagine if Austin Powers had been written by a stand-up comic, and you’ve got the idea behind this raunchy but fun cartoon romp.

Meantime, George Clooney stars as The American, a tense, spy thriller about a hit man who may be the next victim. Set in Italy, this sexy, European-style film confirms why Clooney is still one of the top leading men in the biz.

Other releases include Twelve, with Gossip Girl’s Chase Crawford; the second season of United States of Tara; and Legacy, a dark thriller that stars the underrated Idris Elba.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
