This week’s DVD choices are a little slim, but there’s some quality stuff here.
First, the genre releases:
- Black Hole: Not the Disney movie, but a recent Kristy Swanson movie. Its original release was June 10, 2006, and it’ll be on DVD less than two months later. That alone piques my interest, though I don’t expect it to be very good.
- Broken Saints – Animated Comic Epic: A DVD adaptation of a comic series I haven’t read.
- Cromartie High School: The complete series.
- Dracula, Prisoner of Frankenstein
- Excel Saga – Complete Collection
- Secret of Nimh: One of several MGM rereleases coming out this week under the “Best Seller” banner.
- The Shaggy Dog: The Tim Allen remake
- Spaceballs: MGM rerelease
- Star Trek Fan Collective – Klingon
- V for Vendetta: This link is to the widescreen two disk special edition.
Now, the non-genre
- Benny and Joon: Yet another MGM rerelease.
- Blue Collar TV – Complete Second Season
- Cheech Marin and Friends
- The Comeback – The Complete Only Season: Given the premise of the show, I find its failure mildly amusing.
- Curb Your Enthusiasm – Complete Fifth Season
- Dallas Season Five: I don’t know if this was the dream season or not.
- Elvis: ’68 Comeback
- Family Guy: Freakin’ Sweet Collection
- A Fish Called Wanda (Deluxe Edition)
- Good Times – Complete Sixth Season
- The Graduate: MGM rerelease.
- Hazel – Complete First Season
- The Magnificent Seven: MRM rerelease
- Mr. Moto Collection, Vol. 1: Four Mr. Moto movies starring Peter Lorre.
- Olivier’s Shakespeare: The Laurence Olivier films.
- Quigley Down Under: MGM rerelease
- Richard Pryor – Live in Concert
- Thelma and Louise: MGM rerelease
- This is Spinal Tap: Possibly the best of the MGM rereleases this week.
- Yours, Mine and Ours: MGM rereleases the original, with Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda
Finally, the pick of the week. I’ve got to go with V for Vendetta as the best of this lot.
