The Book of 'Unnecessary' Quotation Marks ($12) takes your from the suggestive to the sarcastic, and shows you quotation marks doing what we love them to do best; wreaking havoc on the English language. Who would have second thoughts about ordering that "hamburger" on the menu at the diner or wondering what the hidden price is for that item advertised as being "free"? From the creator of the hugely popular "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks "blog", this book surveys the havoc caused by those stupid quotation marks on menus, signs, posters, placards and leave reality suspended by those supposed "facts". This is a smarty-pants guide, made no mistake about that, and is perfect for those who habitually "air quote", grammar police or anyone who just wants a darned good laugh.
A movie that many guys name as their number one war flick, and containing just about the goriest opening half hour you will find in any movie, Saving Private Ryan ($15) is yet another masterpiece from the genius that is Steven Spielberg. Four Ryan brothers go to war, 3 are killed and a group of soldiers go deep behind enemy lines to find the fourth. Matt Damon is Private Ryan, but the star of the show is the incomparable Tim Hanks, the leader of the group sent to find him. An action packed movie that will also tug at the heartstrings, Saving Private Ryan is a must see.
Taking his cue from the success of Alien, James Cameron takes an opportunity to continue the story of Alien. In Aliens ($8), the planet’s been colonized but they’ve lost contact with the colonists. So, Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) goes back to the planet with a bunch of bad ass army guys to see what’s up. What she finds there makes her prior trip to the planet look like a walk in the park. Bill Paxton's character makes the movie. This is one movie that gives you a good example of why it’s never a good idea to tick off a mother. Starring Sigourney Weaver, Michael Biehn, Ball Paxton, Paul Reiser and Carrie Henn, this movie is a fitting sequel to a great movie!
