It’s a light week for the genre collectors, but
there’s some good stuff in the mainstream.

First, the genre releases:

Now, the non-genre releases:

Finally, the pick of the week. As some of you may have
noticed
, I’m a
bit of a film history fan. I love to look at the
earliest films and
see how much the art and technology have grown over
the past century
or so. I own a few products released by Kino Video,
which does a
great job restoring and releasing these classics.
This week, they’re
putting out Edison
– The
Invension of the Movies (1891-1918)
, a 910 minute
collection of
140 film library produced through the Edison Company.
It’s a four disk collection that includes the first
panning and
tracking shots, The Great Train Robbery, and
a number of
other classics. It may not be for everyone, but it’s
a must have for
film history buffs. Complete details and listings
are available from the
Kino Video
page
for it.
