Weekly Digital Disc Picks – April 7, 2009

This week has some good new stuff, and some great old stuff.

First, the DVD picks:

Now, the Blu-Ray picks:

Finally, the picks of the week. AceCaseOR says “My Pick of the Week is – 2010. I’ve heard people complain because the movie answers too many questions, I like it because it answers questions from the first movie, while still leaving some questions unanswered, and posing some more of them.” Fiziko says “go with a classic. The Superman set or the Nosferatu release both have great, old-school, highly influential early movies.”

  1. I keep hearing about the Naruto series, and I only recently realized just how many volumes there are (in either manga or anime) — it’s huge! Is the whole thing telling a single massive story (or several massive stories), or is it more episodic? Idly curious.

    • The filler arc is more episodic, but when it’s not in fillers it’s generally more serialized – either in a multi-season arc or meta-arc (such as the stuff involving Orochimaru), or in an arc contained within a single season (like the Land Of Waves arc).

      Basically all of it is up on Hulu, all the way up to the time skip at the end of the first series, which takes us to the current series “Naruto Shippuden” – once you get to the end of the Sasuke Retrieval Arc, you can reasonably skip the rest of the filler until you get to Shippuden. There are some pearls amongst the crab cakes, but there are a lot of crab cakes in the filler arc.

  2. I’ve heard Tango and Cash was pretty funny, or at least Kurt Russell made it funny – what I’m suprised about is how much Steven Segal we’re getting so quickly on Blu-Ray. I like watching martial arts movies, and I’ll even watch some of the bad Lee-Alike movies (“Fists of Bruce Li”), but I just can’t stand Steven Segal.

    • Tango and Cash occupies a good spot in the Buddy Cop Action Movie genre. It sits in there well with the Bad Boys and Lethal Weapon series.

  3. No Country for Old Men: Three disc collector’s edition – Great psychological thriller. Kept me riveted. Not sure why you’d want two discs of extras though.

    Felicity: Season Four: I think this was the season that ratings fell through the floor because Keri Russell cut her hair. – Wasn’t that just amazing how the ratings dropped. She looked like an entirely different person afterward. I understand why her on-screen boyfriend was upset. Just goes to show that looks do matter.
