Weekly DVD Picks – December 6, 2005

Here it is, ladies and gentlemen. It’s a huge
offering of titles this week, as it’s the first
Tuesday in December. There’s an incredible volume
here; I’m getting eight titles myself.

First, the genre releases:

Now, the non-genre releases:

Finally, the pick of the week. There is a
lot to pick from
this week. I’ll have to go with The Rockford
Files – Season
One
. It’s a good detective series that holds up
a few decades
later because it was as much about the style of the
detective as it
was about the mysteries. (This is probably why
Columbo and Monk work
so well, too.) It was close, with the Batman,
Superman, Star Wars,
Disney, and Fleischer products also on the release
schedule, but this
seems to be the best bet (of the products I’ve seen in
some form and
am willing to vouch for) for general audiences and
Christmas shopping,
which is what most of the DVD shopping this time of
year is all
about.

    Star Wars Trilogy

    Star Wars Trilogy: This is a new package of episodes 4, 5, and 6. I suspect that those three disks are identical. This package does not, however, include the bonus disk from the previous release.

    According to the official site, the only difference between this set and the previously-released 4-disc set is that the bonus disk is not included. This release is for people who would like to own the movies but who aren’t Star Wars fanatics. It’s also less expensive than the 4-disc set.

    Re: Samurai X 12/06
    That seems to be about the third release of the Rurouni Kenshin/Samurai X OVAs (Trust & Betrayal was initially released on separate discs, then combined, then Reflection was released, then all three were combined into a box, and now …. looks like a rehash to me). They’re nice, but probably won’t be very interesting if you haven’t seen a pretty fair portion of the television series they follow-up.

    I agree
    The Rockford Files, if for no other reason than to have all the answering machine messages that began the show!

    I don’t agree, Fantastic Four was worse than XMen
    I must say I disagree with the Fantastic Four comment, the original XMen was way better than it was.

      Well, the studio thinks a sequel is worthwhile
