DVD Pick of the Week: Pink Floyd - Pulse

Another lack luster week is upon us. There really isn't much to get excited about among the releases hitting shelves today. There aren't many, if any, that scream must have. However, there is one that stands out from the crowd, mainly because it was first announced five years ago.

This week's pick is Pink Floyd: Pulse. Fans have been clamoring for this, seemingly, since the dawn of the DVD age, and increasingly so since the original announcement. I have never seen this concert, and I may not be the biggest Pink Floyd fan, but there is no denying how incredible their music is and their is no doubt in my mind that this is going to be a set for the collection.

Pulse was shot during the Division Bell tour in 1994, and it features the lineup of David Gilmour, Richard Wright, and Nick Mason. This 145 minute concert features such classics as "Shine on You Crazy Diamond," "Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)," and "One of These Days." The centerpiece of disk 2 is a live performance of Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety.

The more I write about this, the more I want it, so maybe there is a must have for the week. There you have it, this Pink Floyd concert set is this week's must have.

Also coming out this week:
  • 30 Days: Season 1. Morgan Spurlock's brainchild is pretty interesting, he takes his employed method in Supersize Me and applies it to other areas, submersing people for 30 days in another way of life. Pretty interesting.
  • Basic Instinct 2. Awful movie. This is here as a warning to not see this movie.
  • ECW: One Night Stand 2006. The second annual ECW reunion put on by the WWE.
  • The Garden. Not sure how good this will be, but it is an apocalyptic themed movie with Lance Henriksen, how bad can it be?
  • Grilled. Ray Romano and Kevin James as door to door meat salesmen who get mixed up in a mob hit. This looks like it could be pretty funny.
  • Zombiegeddon. How can you go wrong with a title like that? Satan created zombies taking over the world, the only people that cans top them, a pair of dirty cops. Classic.

What are you getting this week?
