51sgUy5UqWL._SS500_.jpgA lot of stuff, but very little essential. Go re-watch Iron Man instead.

? The Simpsons Complete 11th Season
The fact that Krusty is the face on the season’s box is more interesting to me than any of the episodes contained therein.

? Sleeping Beauty
The one with Maleficent, Disney’s greatest villain. Period.

? The Happening
This should explain why you do or don’t need this movie (depending on your tolerance for awful movies) nicely.

? Robot Chicken: Season Three
Someone pointed out how much my name sounds like “Robot Chicken.” Since I used to work with those guys, I don’t know whether to be insulted or ask for a check.

? Young Frankenstein (Blu-ray)
Puttin’ on the ritz, baby.

? The Sarah Jane Adventures: First Season
I’ve read all the Amazon comments three times, and I still have no idea what this is about. It has something to do with Doctor Who, though. I think.

? The Smurfs: Season One, Volume Two
How much Smurfs does any one person need? Who sat through all 30-some episodes of Season One, Volume One, and was left craving more?

? Devil May Cry Vol. 3
Based on the videogame that I could not have sucked more at.

? Speed Racer Complete Classic Series Collection
I admit I kind of want this, but by the time I’d be the most ready to enjoy it, I’d be too drunk to insert the DVD. But the set does come in a swell Mach 5 case.

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
