Another week, another list of options. The pickings
are getting better.
First, the genre releases:
Vol. 22: A vampire soap opera. I’ve seen this
listed many times,
and I’m still surprised they made it.
Edition): This also includes the original
I’ll be picking it up to check out the extended
edition, as well.
Season Three: That was a cool car.
Collection: A great price on three of the later
Corpse Bride: I wanted to see this, but couldn’t
find the time.
Complete First Season (Thinpack): This set has
packaging, which leads to a significantly lower price.
disk contents are the same as the previous
Complete Second Season (Thinpack): Again, same
packaging. I’m running desperately short on storage
space, so I’ve
opted to pick these up and try to resell the original
Complete Third Season (Thinpack): You know the
drill by now.
Now, the non-genre releases:
Collection: This includes Without A
Paddle, School of
Rock, and Orange County.
Season Three: More nostalgia from my
Girl – The Complete Series: I don’t even remember
Bunker’s Place – The Complete First Season: One of
the All In
The Family spin-off series.
Steven Soderbergh film. He’s got a very distinctive
style, so I’m
sure it’s worth seeing.
Strokes – The Complete Second Season: I enjoyed
this the first
time around, but I don’t know how well it holds
Dragon: There are no product details, but I assume
Lee’s last film.
Egoyan Box Set: This includes Speaking
Calendar, Family Viewing and
Next of Kin.
and a Funeral (Deluxe Edition): I enjoyed this,
but not enough to
spring for the two disk set with a single disk edition
Wind (Two Disc Edition): Yet another edition hits
the market. I
enjoyed it when I saw it, but I wouldn’t bother to buy
Blues – Season One: My brother in law will be
thrilled that this
is available now.
Zorro: I’m always skeptical when the studio
“finally finds the
right script for a sequel” after seven years, given
usually a seven year time limit on production to
retain sequel rights
and the star casting options.
Complete Third Season: This was fun to watch.
3: Another well reviewed show I haven’t seen
Greek Wedding: This was an enjoyable comedy, but
I’m not sure it
lives up to its reputation.
Panther: This must be official Pink Panther week
given the amount of Pink Panther product that’s coming
out. This is
movie #1 in a 9 movie series.
Shot In The
Dark: The 2nd in the series.
Clouseau: The 3rd in the series.
Pink Panther: The 4th in the series. This was
on January 10 for some reason, but I’ll list it with
the others for
Panther Strikes Again: The 5th in the series.
Pink Panther: The 6th in the series.
the Pink Panther: The 7th in the series.
Pink Panther: The 8th in the series.
Pink Panther: The 9th in the series.
Classic Cartoon Collection: This is the only Pink
that I find somewhat tempting.
Finally, the pick of the week. The X-Files:
Season was just a great year for a great show.
That’s got to
have my vote, as the fifth season likely will when
through six come out on March 28, 2006.
