Weekly DVD Picks – September 5, 2006

September opens with a fair number of interesting titles, some of which are rereleases, and some of which are new.

First, the genre releases:

Now, the non-genre releases:

Finally, the pick of the week.
It’s a hard week to decide; there’s some great stuff here. I’ve got to go with Seven Samurai. Akira Kurosawa was a great director. I own nine of his films, and they’re some of the best in my collection. (At least 13 of his movies have had the Criterion treatment.) It’s definitely worth checking out. Take a look at Rashomon while you’re at it; you won’t be disappointed.

      That’s a good pick,though Brazil is an excellent film.

      7 Samurai should be required viewing for humans…

  1. Jim Henson languages rant
    # ‘jim Henson Fantasy Film Collection
    # Format: Box set, Closed-captioned, Color, NTSC
    # Language: English
    # Region: Region 1 encoding (US and Canada only)

    There are TWO official languages for region 1.
    This is a high-nostalgia release for which the french versions of the movies exist, I have seen them.
    PUT THE DAMN LANGUAGE TRACKS ON THE GORRAM DVD, like everyone else does!


    P.S. Adding spanish is less obligatory, but welcomed.

  2. Good
    I’ve been hoping for a standalone release of High Anxiety ever since the Mel Brooks boxed set came out. It’s really his only movie I still want on DVD and don’t have.

    I love kurosawa, but frankly… Rashomon bored me a bit. Yes, it was groundbreaking in many, many ways at the time, but, you know. Seven Samurai, however, is amazing. I think Sanjuro is my favourite Samurai movie of his, though.
