Another week of mediocrity.

Title DVD Release(s) Blu-Ray Release(s)
The Bionic Woman: Season Two
The Five Deadly Venoms
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
The Mechanic
Money Train
Allison and Lillia: Generation 1,
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,
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,
The second half of the series.
Project A-Ko,
Alex: In short, it’s about damn time this classic was rescued from the ashes of Central Park Media. Review here.
Vampire Knight Guilty Vol. 2,
Art House
Pale Flower (Criterion Collection)
Classics (Traditional)
Sophia Loren Award Collection
Blaine: Individual releases of three out of four titles are available. Marriage Italian Style, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow and Sunflower are available individually, but Vittorio D is only available in the box set.
Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd
All In The Family: Season Nine
Beverly Hills Cop
Blaine: Easily my favorite Eddie Murphy movie. Of course, there are a lot of Eddie Murphy movies I don’t like at all.
RiffTRAX Live! Reefer Madness
Royal Pains: Season Two
Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job: Season Five
Degrassi, Season Ten Part One
The Hustler
The Other Woman
Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos
The Rite DVD DVD/Blu-Ray combo, Blu-Ray only
Music / Musical
Heaven & Hell Live at Radio City Music Hall
Alex: This is the Dio lineup of Black Sabbath in a concert recorded in 2007, originally in HD, but Rhino apparently decided that it wasn’t putting out on Blu-Ray. This edition is from Eagle Rock Entertainment, while Rhino put out the DVD in 2007.
Covert Affairs: Season One
Chasing Amy (Criterion Collection)
Science Fiction
The Twilight Zone: Season Four
Blaine: This is the original series, which probably goes without saying as neither relaunch made it to a fourth season.
Thor: Tales of Asgard
Diabolique (Criterion Collection)
Jagged Edge
The Comancheros (50th Anniversary Edition)
The Virginian: Complete Fourth Season
Wagon Train: Complete Third Season

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.”
