DVD Day: September 15th, 2009 ($$$$ Edition)


?? X-Men Origins: Wolverine
The commercial for the DVD has literally promised “More origins!” What? How just having the goddamn “origins” you gave us making a lick of sense?

? The Big Bang Theory Season Two
Many people say this is good. I personally can’t get into it, but it’s not one of those things where I begrudge people liking it. I’m sure many people will explain why its awesome in the comments.

? Barbie and the Three Musketeers
Can barbie take on three swashbucklers’ “muskets” at once? Contains hardcore sexual content.

? Doctor Who ’08 Christmas Special
Basically, the Doctor and the Doctor team up to kick Cyberman ass.

? Sanctuary: The Complete First Season
A Syfy series I’m not watching. Commenters, care to lend me a hand?

? X-Men, Vols. 3 and 4
These two 2-disc sets contain the Dark Phoenix and Apocalypse stories, respectively, for a total of 29 episodes. Not bad.

? Primeval Vol. 3
A BBC series I’m not watching, and I’m not going to, at least not until I get through Torchwood, some Doctor Who, and Being Human. Although I’m told it’s quite good.

? The IT Crowd Season 3
This British nerd-com is just as sitcom-y as The Big Bang Theory, so I don’t know why I love it but can’t get into BBT. It might just be the accents, frankly.

? Transformers Season 2, Vol.1
Twenty-eight episodes. None I remember. You should have gotten the complete box set, man.

? Army of Darkness Screwhead Edition
No, wait! It’s the Blu-ray version! You might actually want this one! I have no idea if this contains the original theatrical version, the director’s cut, or what extras from the 19 DVD versions previously released, and the Amazon page is no help. Still… Blu-ray?

? Clone Wars: Clone Commandos Season 1 Vol. 2
Holy hell. Not only does this disc contain only four episodes, it’s not even in widescreen. Jesus.

? Dark Shadows: The Vampire’s Curse
A.k.a. “The Best of Barnabas.” I think. There’s another disc, The Haunting of Collinwood, if you’re interested.

? Knights of Bloodsteel
Oh, come on. It’s called Knights of fucking “Bloodsteel.” I had to mention it. Dare you watch the trailer?

? Deadgirl
Note this movie is selling significantly worse than Knights of Bloodsteel. Perhaps the filmmakers overestimated mass audiences’ desire to watch high school boys sexually abuse a chained-up zombie girl.

? The Legend of Drunken Master
The greatest martial arts film of all time on Blu-ray. Because it involves Jackie Chan getting powered up through booze.

? King Kong Vs. Godzilla
You can’t have any money left at this point, can you?
