Week at a Glance April 19 to April 26

Happy Monday Science Fiction Fans.  This week looks to be rather a slow one in most respects, so I am going to hit the highlights for you.

In the SFSNNJ...
Wednesday 4/21 at Borders Books & Music is Films to Come with Barry Weinberger, where we will be discussing Clash of the Titans among other things.  This promises to be an interesting meeting, what with all of the recent genre releases in the movies.  On Friday 4/23 we meet again at Borders in Ramsey to discuss Stephen Baxter's novel Coalescent for Modern Masters.  This is a cool book, and I will be posting a review of it on Wednesday.

In the Movies...
This week's big 'genre' release is The Losers, based on the comic book series of the same name.  If you are interested in learning more, there is a $1 issue available for purchase at New Moon Comics that can get you into it.  I have to say that after having read this, I am far more interested in this series (which still kind of reminds me of The A-Team).  Strangely, How to Train Your Dragon is proving it has legs for the long haul as it outstripped newcomer Kick-Ass.

On Blu-Ray & DVD
If you have been hiding under a rock for the last few weeks you might not know that Avatar hits the shelves this week in a special edition Blu-Ray set.  Oh, yeah, The Lovely Bones, Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, Transformers: The Movie as well as season one of Merlin the Series, Xena Warrior Princess, and Hercules the Legendary Journeys.
