. Does the show maintain its strong consistency throughout? Or does the series end on a low note? Read our review
for my opinion.
My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic - Buy from Amazon: Adventures In The Crystal Empire and Season One
A very fun cartoon that is aimed at young girls, but has found a receptive audience with a much wider demographic. The studio realizes they have a lot of older fans, and they are smart enough to realize older fans want full seasons sets. Hopefully this DVD sells very well and other studios realize full season sets are the way to go.
Mystery Science Theater 3000: XXV - Buy from Amazon
One of my favorite TV shows of all time. I used to get the screeners for this show all of the time, but they've dried up. I'll double-check to see if I can get this as well.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack
I might get a screener for this film. Its reviews were a weak, but it was able to become a midlevel hit at the box office. I'm hoping the film is sentimental without being too sappy.
Power Rangers Super Samurai: The Complete Season - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
I'm still waiting for the screener for this release. I was never a huge fan of this franchise, but I have enjoyed some of the incarnations, so I remain cautiously optimistic the show improved during the latest run.
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
One of the best B-movies of all time. Maybe best isn't the right word. I'm still waiting for the screener, but I'm eager to see how it looks and sounds on high definition.
Silent Night - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
The latest in a long line of Killer Santa Claus movies. It actually earned good reviews, but there were too make strikes against it to find an audience in limited release. It should perform better on the home market. Also coming out this week is the original film and the sequel on DVD.
The Simpsons: Season 15 - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
Still waiting for the screener to arrive, but while I wait, you can enter our latest contest for a chance to win the DVD.
Star Trek: The Next Generation: Season Two - Blu-ray - Buy from Amazon
For much of its run, this show was considered the best science fiction on TV. However, it started out slowly with season one. Did it improve in season two? Read our review
to find out.
Thunderstruck - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack
Real life basketball star, Kevin Durant, stars as himself, while Taylor Gray plays a 16-year old fan. Taylor is really, really bad at basketball, but one day the two switch talent levels. Now Taylor is a superstar in his highschool, while Kevin is going through a major slump, just as his team is about to reach the playoffs. Early reviews have not been kind to the film. Even the positive reviews say it is okay for kids, but no one else.
TV on DVD Megasets - Buy from Amazon: Cagney & Lacey, McMillan & Wife, and Space: 1999
Just the three Megasets this week, and none of them are major releases.
V/H/S - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
This horror anthology film earned great early reviews, but when more mainstream critics voiced their opinions, the overall reviews were merely mixed. The extras are fine for this type of release with some behind-the-scenes, making of featurette, deleted scenes, etc. If you are a fan of the genre, it's not a bad deal.
