One of the problems with bouncing back from a recession earlier this year is that there’s not a lot of recent product available for the DVD format.

Fantasia / Fantasia 2000 Four disc DVD/Blu-Ray combo
Alex: I’m going out on a limb here and I’ll say that Fantasia is Disney’s greatest animated work and that Fantasia 2000 is, bare minimum, in their top 10.

Meet the Fockers
Parks and Recreation: Season Two

Red-Headed Alibi / Stolen Jools
Blaine: Shirley Temple may get top billing, but Buster Keaton is the credit that excites me the most.
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2010) Two disc combo, Three disc combo
Blaine: I doubt it’s a coincidence this is hitting the same day as Fantasia. I’m just surprised the Hitchcock version (from Alfred Hitchcock Presents) isn’t hitting today, too. The copyright has expired, so that one’s usually out all over the place.
Cairo Time
Blaine: Starring Alexander Siddig
Twilight Saga: Eclipse single DVD, two disc DVD single Blu-Ray, combo edition
Science Fiction
Space: 1999: Complete Season One
Blaine: I understand dipping into the archives to release Star Trek and The Twilight Zone on Blu-Ray, but this? I don’t get it, not when so few archive titles are available in the format.
Marvel Knights: Iron Man – Extremis
Alex: Motion Comic based on Warren Ellis’ extremis arc. I have to admit I haven’t been impressed with most of the motion comics I’ve seen. Blaine: The print comic this is based on is excellent. I haven’t seen the motion comic, because motion comics I have seen based on material originally inteded to be static haven’t panned out well.
Have Gun, Will Travel: Season Five, Volume One

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “This has been a slow week in terms of quantity of releases, but it’s not without its quality releases. Buy the Fantasia collection. Do it now. Don’t wait to find out if they “censored” the female centaurs, just get it. Even if you’re a big time Twilight fan, get the Fantasia collection – Twilight will stay in print for a while, Fantasia will probably go out of print again in a few months. Just get Fantasia. You’ll thank yourself (and us) later.” Blaine says, “listen to Alex.”
