Weekly Digital Disc Picks – December 16, 2008

Here’s the last good, long list before Christmas. I’ll post the Dec. 23 picks shortly, but last minute shoppers should not depend on that list for anything worthwhile.

First, the DVD releases:

Now, the Blu-Ray releases:

Finally, the picks of the week. Yes, it’s plural. As far as I’m concerned, there are three must-have items on shelves this week. The DVD item is Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog, but if you support Blu-Ray, go with Chungking Express and/or The Third Man too.

One reply

  1. Regarding some of this week’s anime
    Regarding "Sailor and the 7 Ballz part 2" – In short, it’s not official, it’s porn, and it’s really, really, bad. Avoid at all costs (seriously – if you’re into that kind of thing, there’s enough original, and officially licensed stuff available to *ahem* cover your bases.

    Regarding Negima?! – basically, this is a second series based off Ken Akamatsu’s (the guy who did Love Hina) fantasy manga Negima (the first series was canceled early on). Basically, if you’re not familiar with it already, think of it as Harry Potter with fanservice.

    As far as School Rumble goes – Season 1 is currently streaming for free from Hulu.com, subtitled, not dubbed (for cost reasons) in case you want to give it a try – before you start buying DVDs, likewise with the uncut episodes of Naruto (with the music from the Japanese release – again, subtitled only, but having listened to the English dub, it can get rather annoying – Believe it!)
