Weekly Digital Disc Picks – February 26, 2008

This is not a great week.

First, the DVD releases:

Now, the Blu-Ray releases:

The HD DVD releases are as follows:

Finally, the pick of the week. As most of you know, I don’t pick things I haven’t seen, which means it would be a choice between “Red Green,” “Riptide,” and “The Smurfs.” Based on the quality of their predecessors, I strongly suspect that “Justice League – The New Frontier” and “Extras: The Extra Special Series Finale” would both be better than those. Next week has some nice titles, too.

    Highlander: The Source
    Apparently this was a made-for-TV release. Anyone seen it?

      Red Green was also a hit among NASA astronauts.

      I was unimpressed (and, sadly, not surprised by that). I even read somewhere that when they were making it, they intended it to be a theatrical release, and changed to tv late in the process. Good thing, as they’d have made no money in theaters.

      Lots of things grated on me, here’s the list, spoiler’d (though I don’t know why): The fight scenes were too-obviously sped up on film; the bad guy had the perfect defense for saving his head, but only needed it in his first fight; MacLeod was bitter, angry and disinterested; Methos seemed out of character the whole time (though they sort of justified it in his last scene); Joe died; and they contradicted the series again with MacLeod being married. That enough?
