Feedback was strong on last week’s format, so that’s the one we’ll stick with.

Title DVD Release(s) Blu-Ray Release(s)
44 Inch Chest DVD Blu-Ray
Avatar DVD Blu-Ray/DVD combo
Blaine: There are two important points about the Avatar release. First of all, it actually comes out on Earth Day, Thursday April 22. Secondly, there are virtually no extras on this release. With an extended edition (extended by 12 minutes) due in theatres in July, I believe it’s safe to assume that an extra-laden edition will be available in time for Christmas.
Basketball Diaries Blu-Ray
Batman series (Tim Burton era) Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever and Batman and Robin
Blaine: All of these have already been reviewed: Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever and Batman and Robin.

The F Word – Season Four DVD
Falcon Crest: Season One DVD
Fist of Legend Blu-Ray
Alex: This is a re-make of the Bruce Lee film Fist of Fury, which was originally released in the US as The Chinese Connection, and one which tones down the anti-Japanese sentiment of the original film.
Hercules: The Legendary Journeys Season One DVD
K-20: Fiend With Twenty Faces DVD

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “if you read my review of Avatar, then it shouldn’t surprise you that this is my pick of the week.” Blaine says, “I admit, I haven’t seen Avatar yet. By the time my work schedule allowed it, it was off the 3D IMAX screens that it was made for, and the July reissue had already been announced, so that’s my plan. Going by the rest, the Batman movies are all I’ve seen, but I can’t even recommend the first of those very strongly in the post-Batman Begins and Dark Knight world.”
