The Rocky Horror Picture Show - 35th Anniversary Blu-ray - Buy from Amazon
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
is coming out on an Anniversary Edition Blu-ray this week, and I'm finally getting a chance to see the whole thing, and not just a few of the musical numbers over and over again. So does it live up to all of the fuss?
: "I wonder what all the fuss is about?"
: "Ahem. June 15th. It's your wedding anniversary."
What? I had to squeeze in one last Phineas and Ferb
quote. ... Just read the review
and it will all make sense.
Scooby Doo Double-Shot - Buy from Amazon: All Star Laff-A-Lympics - Volume 2 and Where Are You? - Volume 4
Two more DVDs from Hannah Barbara's most popular cartoon character are coming this week. The price-per-minute is high compared to a lot of TV on DVD releases, but this is true of most single-disc releases.
Shaun the Sheep: Season 1 - Buy from Amazon
After a bunch of single-disc releases, the show is finally coming out on a full season DVD. If you are waiting, you will save a whole lot of money grabbing this set.
The Six Wives of Henry Lefay - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
Elisha Cuthbert stars as the daughter of Henry Lafay, and has to deal with his six ex-wives at his funeral. This film was made in 2007 for a 2008 release. It's only making its debut this week, and it is going direct-to-DVD. That doesn't necessarily mean it is a bad movie, but it is a bad sign. It is also a bad sign that there are nearly no reviews online.
Tales From the Darkside: Final Season - Buy from Amazon
The final season of this horror anthology is coming out just in time for Halloween, but the screener is late.
TV Series Megaset - Buy from Amazon: Alias Smith and Jones and Pee-Wee's Playhouse
Just the two Megasets this week, and I missed the Smith and Jones release on my first pass. On the other hand, Pee-Wee still has a lot of fans.
Vampire Girl vs.Frankenstein Girl - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
From the same people who brought us Tokyo Gore Police... Add to basket now. Also, next month RoboGeisha comes out.
Wallander - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
Kenneth Branagh stars in this British adaptation of the Swedish crime novels. This is the second series of three TV movies and the show has been so successful that a third series of six episodes is in the works. (As is another novel in the series.) Fans of the actor should certainly check out this show and at just $4 more, the Blu-ray is the better deal.
