Gee, do you think mabye Christmas is coming? There are a lot of deluxe box sets this week.

9-Film Action Pack featuring Bruce Lee
Amazon
  • Format: US, CAN
Comments By “featuring Bruce Lee” they mean they’re including “Fist of Fear, Touch of Death”. You know, I kind of wish that the next time someone puts out one of these “Featuring Bruce Lee” DVD collections that only have Bruce Lee footage through “Fist of Fear, Touch of Death”, that the releasing studio gets sued for false advertising, just to see what would happen.

Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “the Film Noir, Stanley Kubrick and Sherlock content are all must own titles, but aside from Sherlock, I’m not sure any are worth an upgrade if you already own them.” Alex says, “I’m looking to pick up Sherlock Hound myself, as I’m interested in seeing some of Hayao Miyazaki’s earlier, non-Lupin III work.”
