Fans of the Coen Brothers' "George Clooney is an Idiot" Trilogy (O Brother Where Art Thou?, Intolerable Cruelty and Burn After Reading) -- of which I count myself a member -- will probably like Leatherheads, which, while not directed by the Coens, certainly feels like it could have been with the addition of one or two brutal deaths. O Brother fans in particular will appreciate the film's pre-Depression-era setting and the few old-timey character actors from that film who Clooney brought with him for this, his third directing effort. Fans of sports movies and 1930s screwball comedies will also appreciate this movie, and there are plenty of extras to keep them busy on the DVD version.
If you are a Heroes fan, and I kind of presume that you are if you clicked on this column, this DVD set is one that you'll want to add to your collection. Now I'm not going to start defending the problematic and abridged second season of this superhero saga by saying that it was 13 incredible episodes. Because then I'd be lying, and I try not to do that on a regular basis. I thought the season was hit or miss, but still the set itself is pretty impressive and jam-packed full of extras that weren't just thrown on as an afterthought. The producers and cast of the show clearly have a passion for this series, and that comes across here.
I'm also not going to even attempt to thoroughly explain all that went down on this show in season 2; we've got full recaps for that. But suffice it to say it involved feudal Japan, a biological virus, a girl who has bleeding eyes, an Irish pub, lots of DNA stuff, a teenager who can fly and one notorious bad guy who likes to slice open heads and steal brains.
