Here’s a selection of the lineup available on October
First, the genre releases:
Days Later / The Omen Two Pack: I think these are
already individually available, but the two pack
prices tend to be cheaper.
Adventures in Wonderland: A $5 DVD starring
Dudley Moore (presumably not as Alice).
Lugosi: A 5 DVD ten movie set with an assortment
of Lugosi films for a very low price.
Day After Tomorrow: The first movie in a while to
involve Roland Emmerich without Dean Devlin.
Suess – The Cat In The Hat / How the Grinch Stole
Christmas: A two pack of the live action movies.
I cannot recommend spending actual money on “The Cat
In The Hat.”
Indiana – The Complete Series: Yet another
cancelled show finds life on DVD.
Mine: A pretty good movie that theangrymob will
tell us all about some day.
The single disk edition is already out. This is a
two DVD special edition.
ZIM – Horrible Holiday Cheer: For the ZIM fans
Sinbad Collection: Three Sinbad movies.
King Presents Kingdom Hospital: The miniseries in
a single collection.
Wonka and the Chocolate Factory / The Wizard of
Oz Two Pack: Two great movies if you have

of Algiers: A Criterion Collection release of a
movie I’m not familiar with, but the details look

- Casablanca /
The Maltese Falcon Two Pack: Two great movies.
On: Seasons one and two: A highly respected (in
its day) show that I wasn’t allowed to touch, as I
was too young for some of the content.
Taylor Signature Collection: A four movie set.
The Signature Collections are starting to come out
more often. (I’m still tempted by the Hitchcock
Farrelly Brothers Collection: contains “There’s
Something About Mary,” “Shallow Hal,” and “Me, Myself
and Tracy Signature Collection: I think this is
the first Signature Collection to focus on two
Alone: The Caper Collection: The first was
amusing. The second didn’t convince me to watch the
third or fourth.
Wayne Signature Collection: As I said, these are
coming out more often.
Music Man / Singing In The Rain Two Pack:
Probably the two best of the classic musicals.
The Town / Brigadoon Two Pack: I haven’t seen
On The Town. I’ve written a review of
Brigadoon, but it won’t be posted until
early November, once the Halloween Countdown is
and Stimpy – The Complete First and Second
Seasons: Frankly, I never saw the appeal, but I’m
sure somebody here will have loved it.
Classics – The Best Picture Collection: Several
of the older best picture winners in one set.
– The Complete First Season: For the nostalgic
Entertainment Trilogy: All three specials talking
about Warner studio history.
Wire – Complete First Season: A well reviewed
show I’ve never seen.
