R.I.P. Brittany Murphy, & New DVD’s

Jump to Comments

It’s Tuesday — ready for more DVD’s? (Think stocking stuffers, because that’s exactly what the studios & the big retailers are thinking). How about (500)Days of Summer …(super cute indie romantic comedy with genuine bite courtesy of its stars Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon Levitt). Perhaps you’ll put District 9 under the tree (the trippy-earthlings-and-mutating-aliens-movie-from South Africa )…or maybe someone you know would like a wrapped up copy of  Extract, (the latest from Office Space/Beavis & Butthead creator Mike Judge with a very  funny Jason Bateman).  Then we have All About Steve with Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper which curiously, may or may not have been a misfire for both its stars. If you happened to have seen it, let us know what you thought.  In Hollywood Nuptial News, it’s official: Carrie Underwood is engaged. The lucky guy? Mike Fisher — a hockey player for the Ottawa Senators. (At first I wondered, but where will they live? And then I remembered that when you’re  a multimillion record selling pop star and you’re marrying a professional athlete, well, um, that’s not the kind of stuff people like that worry about). On a more serious note, Hollywood is still stricken by the devastating news of young actress Brittany Murphy’s death by cardiac arrest this past Sunday morning. Apparently Murphy was suffering from flu-like symptoms prior to her passing, and there is an ongoing medical investigation, during which time her grieving family has asked that their privacy be respected. It seems fitting now to take a look at this young lady’s significant body of work (on both the big and little screens). With this in mind, voice your choice in today’s featured poll and let us know which of the following featured your favorite Brittany Murphy role?

a) Clueless

b) 8 Mile

c) Just Married

d) King of the Hill
