A List of the Latest DVD Movies & New Releases

< ?php include(""); ?>Since I am a huge movie fan, I have compiled this page called DVD Movies New Releases for everyone who wants to have immediate access to a list of new DVD releases.

The list of popular new DVD releases below was put together for you today, < ?php print(Date("l F d, Y"))?>. I do this automatically with a little bit of technical ingenuity ;) The picture you see to your left is the top DVD rental at this very moment!

Below, you will find the movie or television DVD release ranking, movie box cover, movie stats, latest movie review, and the overall rating given to the movie.

My favorite part is the new DVD release movie reviews. It’s always amazing to me the different perspectives people have: one person will hate it and another will love. This diversity is what makes the reviews so interesting. Since these reviews are automated, you can sometimes reload the page and see an entirely different review. Pretty cool, huh?

What Do You Think of This Man?

I am going to describe a man to you and I just want to know what your thoughts of him are.

This man is 38 years old, has a terrific job, and many friends.  On top of all that, he has an attractive loving wife who has faithfully been by his side for the last 11 years.  Together, they have recently decided to have their first baby together.

One morning, sensing that he is 38 and hasn’t really “lived”, he wakes, looks at his wife, and out of the blue tells her that he is leaving and wants out of their 11 year marriage without explanation, other than he need to “live”.  He essentially leaves her crying with no answers and walks out the door.

What is the first thing that he does?  He gets a girlfriend, a young one, much younger that his wife, 14 years younger in fact.  After bedding her for about 6 months, Read More

Erica DePalo, Teacher of the Year, Accused of Rape

A former “teacher of the year”, Erica DePalo, has been accused of having sex with one of her students.  DePalo, who won the New Jersey Teacher of the Year Award, is now faced with charges of first-degree aggravated assault. But, is this assault?

To any mothers out there, this story certainly is offensive.  “Someone has violated my little boy,” would certainly be their pervasive sentiment.  And, to make matters worse, this teacher is in a trusted position of authority.  She has abused this trust and physically assaulted a little boy.

For men, the first question that comes to mind is:  “Is she hot?”  So, let’s take a look at photos of the teacher, Erica DePalo, to determine just how abused the child was.

Photos of Erica DePalo:  The Teacher Accused of Having Sex With Her Student

Here are several photos of Erica DePalo, in good times, receiving her teacher of the year award, and bad times, posing for a mugshot.

Is This Really Abuse By A Teacher?

Certainly, when an older male teacher has relations with a young female student, we consider this abuse.  However, men and women age differently.  While a 15 year old girl is light years away from her true peak, a 15 year old boy is in the midst of transformation.  If men peak at 18, a 15 year old is well within the sphere of his sexual peak.

So, when a female teacher has sex with a 15 year old male student, is it abuse?

I remember my high school days, when I was a boy of 15.  I had a few female teachers and I spent nearly the whole class fantasizing about them, even the not-so-attractive ones.

So, what if these teachers would have approached me?  Would I have accepted?  Are you kidding?

I remember the “teacher abuse” involving Debra Lafave, seen in the photos below:

So, this is abuse?  Or, are we confusing abuse with good fortune?  While married men certainly would not admit this to their spouses, they see photos of Debra Lafave and think “that lucky little…”.

Sadly, not all teens, or teachers for that matter, are created equal.

If I would have been blessed with Debra Lafave advances at 15, I would have kept silent, enjoyed every moment of it, walked about school with a knowing grin from ear-to-ear, and been imbued with a sexual confidence not found in many 15 year olds.  However, other students might have mistaken her advances for love and ended up confused and feeling, in the end, abused.

The teacher, as well, may take a relationship out of context.  While one may want a romp in the hay with 15 year old boy, the other may want a lasting relationship, and heaven forbid, get pregnant, like in the case of Mary Kay Letourneau.

I suppose this is why we have laws–to protect the minority sentiment.  However, one of my favorite philosophers when speaking of laws, says “for every foot a different shoe”, meaning that we should look at each case independently.

I think lawyers and judges should interview the students.  Perhaps, they should ask them:  “How do you feel about Debra Lafave?”

When they see the ear-to-ear grin, they have their answer:  case dismissed!
