Elite Leather
You already know how much better it is to watch a new movie at home in your lush home theater. It's even better when you can nestle into a top-of-the-line recliner. Elite Leather's new Tahoe chair, which is reminiscent of a recliner, is available in two-, four-, and five-seat configurations to accommodate any room, and each seat features its own cup holder. The chair can recline almost completely horizontally, even when placed flat against a wall—perfect for saving space. It's available in your choice of over 200 leather or 100 Ultrasuede colors. Prices for a three-seat configuration range from $5,000 to $8,000, depending on the grade of leather.

DVD: Big Fish—Columbia TriStar
Video: 3
Audio: 4
Extras: 3
The volatile dynamic between fathers and sons is as much a part of our collective experience as the need to tell stories. Big Fish weaves the two elements into one tale about a man who loves to tell and retell the fantastic (and somewhat unbelievable) stories of his life and the son who just wants to know who his father really is. Amidst endlessly entertaining, imaginative vignettes brought to the screen as only director Tim Burton can, Big Fish deftly portrays the quiet familial struggle. Burton and crew strike the perfect balance between both story elements, and the result is a wonderfully sweet, poignant film.
