Law & Order: The Twelfth Year - Buy from Amazon
This is a great show, but you don't need to see all of the episodes in the right order to enjoy it, while the DVD releases are really bad. What's the point in buying a featureless DVD when you can see the show eight times a day in syndication?
The Loneliest Planet - Buy from Amazon
I'm still waiting for the screener for this release. I've heard great things, so I'm really looking forward to seeing it.
The Master - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
This film earned amazing reviews and was a big player during Awards Season; however, it still underperformed both critically and at the box office. I guess expectations were unfairly high. There are not a lot of extras with the biggest being an archival documentary, Let There Be Light. Still, it is worth picking up, but not quite Pick of the Week material.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Season 2, Volume 1 - Buy from Amazon
Still waiting for the screener for this release. Hopefully it will arrive soon.
Phineas & Ferb: The Perry Files - Animal Agents - Buy from Amazon
Still waiting for this screener. I love this cartoon, so I'm really looking forward to seeing it.
Rocko's Modern Life: The Complete Series - Buy from Amazon
One of the greatest cartoons ever made. I was really hoping for a screener for this release, but that seems unlikely now. It was one of those cartoons that were clearly aimed at kids, but had enough subversive humor that adults would enjoy watching them with their kids. Or watching them without their kids. Even if there are no extras, and there are likely little to no extras, it is still a contender for Pick of the Week.
Scooby Doo: Mask of the Blue Falcon - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack
One of the longest running cartoon franchises, ever. I don't know how many DVD / Blu-rays have been released over the years; I wouldn't even want to hazard a guess. Not every incarnation has been a hit, but there's a reason for the longevity, because at its core, this show has a really good premise.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rise of the Turtles - Buy from Amazon
Still waiting for the screener for this one.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack
The Twilight franchise is over, at least until the studio figures out how to make a spin-off. Does it go out on a high note leaving fans wanting more? Won't know till the screener arrives. Also coming out this week is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1: Extended Edition on DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack. I'm still waiting for that screener as well.
WWE: Royal Rumble 2013 - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
Not a fan of wrestling, but these releases do tend to sell rather well.
