There are a few good titles coming next week. Things will really start to pick up over the summer.
First, the DVD releases:
- Age Old Friends
- Brute Force (Criterion Collection)
- The Chocolate War
- Freedom Writers
- George and the Dragon
- The George Eliot Collection
- George Lopez – The Complete First and Second Seasons
- The Ghost Busters – The Complete Series: This is the Filmation live action series, complete with the guy in the gorilla suit.
- La Haine (Criterion Collection)
- Happy Days – The Complete Second Season: It’s been quite some time since season one came out.
- Highlander – Ultimate Collection: The “Best of the Best” subtitle on a six disc set with a 1.33:1 aspect ratio seems to imply that this is a collection of TV episodes and not movies, but I’m not entirely sure.
- The History Boys
- The Image
- The Last King of Scotland
- Laverne and Shirley – The Complete Second Season: A wait as long as Happy Days.
- Mork and Mindy – The Complete Second Season: I really enjoyed this when I was in grade two. Watching it later, I don’t see how a mature and sober individual could be amused by this.
- Murder, She Wrote – The Complete Sixth Season
- National Lampoon’s Pucked
- Not Just The Best of the Larry Sanders Show
- Notes on a Scandal
- Overlord (Criterion Collection)
- Shadow Warriors – The Complete First Season
- Smokin’ Aces
- Spider-Man 2.1: This is the unrate, extended cut, with an additional eight minutes of footage. I don’t know what the extra footage is, or if it will provide additional background information leading into the third film or not.
- Thieves Like Us
- The Third Wish
- True Confessions
- The Venture Bros. – Season Two
Now, the Blu-Ray releases:
- The Dirty Dozen
- Dragon’s Lair: The original game adapted to the Blu-ray Java platform.
- Enter the Dragon
Here are the HD DVD releases:
Finally, the pick of the week. The new release of Spider-Man 2 easily takes the title. Even if you’re not a superhero fan, you’ve got to admit that’s a well made movie.
