Gourmet Guess, what’s new on DVD and what are we doing that’s making us stupid? 

Your Gourmet Guess for today: This is needed for every living creature on Earth in order to help sustain life. (Scroll down for the correct answer.)

New on DVD today:

Something Borrowed – Starring Ginnifer Goodwin. She plays a woman who confesses her feelings to a guy she’s had a crush on since college. Problem is, he’s engaged to her best friend played by Kate Hudson. Our Movie Maven Ileana calls this one a RENT.

The Conspirator – Starring James McAvoy who defends a woman accused of conspiring in the Lincoln assassination, played by Robin Wright. Robert Redford directs. Ileana says this one is a BUY if you like political thrillers. Otherwise it’s a definite RENT.

Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil – Granny, Red, Wolf and Twitchy join a secret spy organization to ensure all fairy tales have happy endings.

Ileana’s C.L.I.P. of the Week is Jane Eyre. It’s the film adaptation of Charlotte Bronte’s novel starring Michael Fassbender and Jaime Bell. Ileana calls this one a RENT.

You may own something called a smartphone, but using it may be making you stupid. A recent survey by the Pew Research Center says that one out of every eight of us has pretended to use our phones to avoid interacting with people. Smartphones are great to have for informational purposes but we rely on them so much, that we aren’t using our actual brains to figure stuff out. 25% of respondents say that they’ve recently had trouble doing something because their phone wasn’t nearby.

Your Gourmet Guess answer: Salt. It was also used to pay Roman soldiers which is where the term “worth their weight in salt” comes from.
