DVD Day: June 23rd, 2009


? Hobgoblins 2
If you’re an MST3K fan, you’ve probably seen and were horrified by Hobgoblins, a low-budget Gremlins rip-off full of extra sleazy, unpleasant teens. Believe it or not, there is now a sequel and the little girl on the front cover hanging with the Hobgoblins is like my crack — I know its bad for me, but I’m going to get it anyways. Ludicrously, the original Hobgoblins has a 20th anniversary DVD coming out today as well, if you want to watch it without the MST track. For some reason.

? Tom and Jerry: The Chuck Jones Collection
I know Chuck Jones is a cartoon genius, but I have always, always hated Tom and Jerry. Give me Wile E. and the Roadrunner any day.

? Death Note Re-Light Vol. 1
Much like The Plan, this is a new version of Death Note seen through the eyes of Ryuk. Except that it’s mostly old animation. I loves me some Death Note, but I can easily take a pass on this.

? The Monster Squad: The Complete Collection
Not the awesome ’80s movie but apparently a ’70s Saturday morning TV series of the same name which I had no idea existed until 10 minutes ago.

? Dragon Hunters
Some CG straight-to-DVD fantasy that has strange good reviews on Amazon. Admittedly, one of those reviewers called himself “Rockin’ Dad,” though, so we can probably just forget about it altogether.
