Written by and starring Shaun of the Dead masterminds Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, Paul is a rad sci-fi comedy about two comic book geeks from the UK who set out on an epic road trip through the United States. The wacky dudes eventually discover an alien named Paul (Seth Rogen) during a stop at the notorious Area 51 site. Hilarity obviously ensues. Special goodies for the DVD/Blu-ray include a solid blooper reel, the featurette Between The Lighting Strikes: The Making of Paul, and amazing commentary with Greg Mottola, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Bill Hader, and Nira Park. Paul didn’t destroy at the box office by any means, but don’t let that fool you. We’re dealing with comedy professionals here, people. Do it.

Music

Originally meant to come out as a five-track EP collaboration by Jay-Z and Kanye West, the brand new Watch the Throne is thankfully now a full-length LP stacked with 12 new tracks by the hip-hop titans. Recorded in the South of France, Australia, Paris, New York City, and Los Angeles, this album could easily go on to become the biggest selling record of the year. If “Otis,” the first single released, is any indication of what listeners are in for, things are seriously going to be brilliant on every level imaginable. Most people can’t stand Kanye on the mic and prefer him on the production side of things, but this just might be his finest hour now that he’s going toe-to-toe with one of the greatest MCs of all time. Throne also features guest appearances by Beyoncé, Frank Ocean, and Mr Hudson. Do this now.
