The Michel Gondry-directed reboot of the Green Hornet follows newspaper publisher Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) as he moonlights as a masked crime fighter with his badass sidekick Kato. Even though this film easily has one of the strangest ensemble casts ever, it’s a really solid action flick. It supplies fans with jaw-dropping action sequences mixed with some witty comedic banter. If you’re a dude, it doesn’t really get any better. The DVD/Blu-ray includes an Awesoom gag reel, a 3D, DVD and standard Blu-ray versions of the film and the featurettes Writing The Green Hornet, Finding Kato, and The Art of Destruction. Don’t hate. Scoop it, y’all.

Hot Sauce Committee Part Two is the eighth studio album by the legendary Beastie Boys. Originally planned for release in late 2009, the album was delayed after Adam "MCA" Yauch was diagnosed with cancer. Luckily for us all, MCA is now cancer-free and the boys of New York are back in top form ready to show these kiddies how it’s really done. The Beasties take almost all of the Hot Sauce production credits and collaborators on the new LP include Santigold and Nas. I could go into greater detailas to why you should get this, but we all know the Beastie Boys will never let us down. Get it.

Last week was quite a triumphant Tuesday where video game releases are concerned. We got the epic puzzle adventure, Portal 2, and the next installment in the Mortal Kombat franchise. Both games turned out to be quite excellent. This week there’s just one noteworthy game on the release calendar, and it’s a precursor to what’s sure to be a massive cinematic release in Thor: God of Thunder. Yeah, video games based on movies usually stink, but this one doesn’t try to replicate the plot of the flick. Instead, it tells its own tale that will set you up for the movie when it hits theatres. This also explains why the game is coming out quite some time before the Son of Odin hits silver screens.
