DVD Day: July 14th, 2009


? G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Vol. 1.1
It begins! If you’re not ponying up for the complete collection, you should know this set has four DVDs with include the The MASS Device, The Revenge Of Cobra: The Weather Dominator and The Pyramid Of Darkness mini-series, plus a disc of pretty awesome extras including original toy commercials, PSAs, the original 1963 G.I. Joe Toy Fair presentation, and more. And the Cobra and Arashikage logos aren’t stickers but temporary tattoos… just so you know. At $17, you really don’t have an excuse not to get this.

? The State: Complete Series
It’s here. I know, I didn’t believe it either. Amazon has it practically half-off at $38 at the moment if you’re so inclined.

? Bleach Uncut Box Set 3
I’d tell you that this includes part of Rukia’s rescue, except that describes a range of something like 100 episodes, so I don’t think it’s going to do you much good. However, this special edition does have a limited edition Hollow Mask, which might be of interest.

? The Color of Magic
The hell? Okay, get this — it’s another movie of Terry Prachett’s Discworld books, this based on my two favorites and his very first, The Color of Magic and The Light Fantastic. Sean Astin plays the tourist Twoflower, David Jason plays Rincewind, and apparently the film also stars Tim Curry, Jeremy Irons and Brian Cox, who no longer have any regard for what they star in. Now, I’d be inclined to think that this is terrible, just because, but the two reviews currently up on Amazon say it’s pretty good. Now, that’s hardly a ringing endorsement, but I’ll take what I can get. And of you Topless Roboteers seen this bad boy and care to let us know how it is?

? [Rec]
The Spanish horror flick that inspired the Sony flop Quarantine. It’s basically the Cloverfield/Blair Witch handheld camera schtick but with zombies. You can’t be too upset with that.
