However, Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple is going in my Netflix queue, as is Sayonara Zetsubo-Sensei.” Blaine says, “I’d go with either Dr. Horrible or Justice League, depending upon whether or not you already have those titles in your collection and whether or not you can support Blu-Ray.”

  1. Seven Swords had been released to DVD once before
    I saw it well over a year ago
    Wonder what’s different in this release

  2. Having this post every week is great — I rely on it to keep my updated on what’s coming out on DVD. But I’m thinking about the new format.

    I like the section headings but don’t think they are different enough from the actual movie text. So I have some suggestions to change that:

    1) Change the background color of the section heading row to be slightly different. For example, make it black instead of the gray that it is now. Or perhaps a lighter gray.

    2) Have a separate table for each section, with some space between the tables.

    3) Put a blank row directly above a section heading rows.

    Thanks for the good work guy!
