DVD Report – August 4th

As is too often the case, this week’s batch of new DVDs is a battle for the title of Crappiest Waste of Time. And the (dis)-honor goes to Beyonce’s Obsessed. I know nothing about Obsessed, but a quick reading of its mini-reviews suggests that it might hit that mythical region of “so-bad-it’s-good”.
