Alex: The Dragon Dynasty release of what is one of the most famous Shaw Brothers films of all time finally gets a Blu-Ray release. High-Definition re-mastered Shaw-scope and the original audio track (also re-mastered) for the win!
Flashpoint: Third Season Amazon.com
The Mechanic Amazon.com Amazon.com

Anime
Allison and Lillia: Generation 1 Amazon.com, rightstuf.com
Alex: I managed to the first half of this series (which is what this DVD entails) of this fansubbed at my local anime club before it was licensed. What I saw of this series, which is a somewhat episodic affair set in an world that’s kind of an alternate Europe between World War I and II, really impressed me, and I enjoyed it immensely.
Excel Saga: The Complete Series – Anime Classics Amazon.com, rightstuf.com
Alex: This is a semi-classic oddball comedy from the 90s that established the career of the series director, Nabeshin. I own a copy of this, and it’s genre, but I’ve never quite gotten around to reviewing it. Maybe I should rectify that.
Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit Pt. 2 Amazon.com, rightstuf.com
The second half of the series.
Project A-Ko Amazon.com, rightstuf.com

Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “the Criterion Collection edition of Chasing Amy has been rereleased for $14.98 MSRP, currently listed at $11.99. Great movie, great DVD, great price. If you don’t have it already, it’s a no brainer.” Alex says, “I really like Project A-Ko, but I’ve got a special place in my heart for Allison & Lillia, which I’m making my Pick of the Week.”
