Another week, another round of DVDs. Nothing to write home about, though.
First, the genre releases:
- Cartoon Classic Favourites Vol. 10 – Best Pals – Mickey and Minnie: I have most (all?) of these in the Walt Disney Treasures already.
- Cartoon Classic Favourites Vol. 11 – Best Pals – Donald and Daisy: For those not collecting the Treasures series.
- Cartoon Classic Favourites Vol. 12 – Best Pals – Mickey and Pluto: Another collection in the series.
- The Dark: It’s got an interesting cast, even if it doesn’t have the best reviews.
- Escaflowne: Anime Legends Complete Collection: Another well regarded anime I haven’t seen. There are way too many of those.
- Farscape – Season Three, Collection Three (Starburst Edition): I’m still waiting for the Starburst box sets.
- Leprachaun / Leprachaun 2: This double feature stars Jennifer Aniston and Warwick Davis.
- Mission: Impossible (Special Collector’s Edition): This wasn’t a bad movie, though it’s not really what I think of when I think of Mission: Impossible. (For me, MI is about a team of very mortal experts who work as a team to do the impossible. This is about Tom Cruise kicking ass with just a bit of help.)
- Mission: Impossible 2 (Special Collector’s Edition): This one didn’t impress me at all. This wasn’t about a team at all.
- Mission: Impossible box set: If you plan to get both, this is the way to do it.
Now, the non-genre releases:
- Bob Newhart – The Complete Third Season:
- Deep Blue: A documentary on sea life.
- Fun with Dick and Jane: Tea Leoni’s presence isn’t enough to get me to watch this Jim Carrey flick.
- Grad Night: Coolio stars in this movie about graduating from an urban high school.
- The Greatest Game Ever Played: I can’t say I’m all that interested in a golf movie.
- In Living Color – Season Five: Jim Carrey’s in this one, too.
- Laugh or I’ll Shoot! Collection: Includes The Naked Gun, Top Secret, and Airplane!.
- Laurel and Hardy Giftset: Two of the earliest screen comedians together.
- The Newsroom – Complete Third Season: This is a hilarious show.
- The Red Show Diaries – The Movie: A well reviewed title I’ve never seen.
Finally, the pick of the week. I’d have to go with the Laugh or I’ll Shoot! Collection. There’s something to be said for classic idiot humour.
