DVD Day: September 22nd, 2009


?? Star Trek: The Next Generation Motion Picture Collection
On Blu-ray, but there’s a DVD version of the set if you want these but shockingly haven’t purchased them yet. Contains Generations, First Contact, Insurrection, Nemesis and a bonus disc.

? Castle
This is not a nerdy TV series, but since it stars Firefly’s Nathan Fillion, I figure it had to be mentioned. Nerd boys, Tina Fey and the new season of 30 Rock comes out today, too.

? Wallace and Gromit: A Matter of Loaf and Death
Hey! It’s a new Wallace and Gromit short! featuring bread! That’s probably quite good. you can buy it in a pack with the rest of the W&G DVDs in you’re so inclined.

? Star Trek: The Original Series Season Two
On Blu-ray, and including episodes like “Amok Time,” “Mirror, Mirror,” “The Trouble with Tribbles” and more. ‘Nuff said.

? Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Complete Season Two
Of, T:TSSCCST2 as fans like to call it. Also available on Blu-ray.

? Scooby Doo: The Mystery Begins
Oh my god. It’s a direct-to-DVD live-action Scooby Doo movie, with none of the original actors, but chronicling how they all first met. This sounds like what I’ll have to watch in hell, while Scrappy Doo feasts for eternity on my entrails.

? Battle for Terra
I don’t have the faintest clue what this CG crap-fest is all about, but it looks like sci-fi Delgo to me. Maybe they can sue James Cameron too.

? The Haunted World of El Superbeasto
Rob Zombie’s adult cartoon movie. Looks impossibly gratuitous, but remember, it stars Clint Howard as Cthulhu. And that’s fucking awesome.

? Friday the 13th: The Series: The Final Season
The final volume of the  acclaimed horror series that doesn’t star Jason and that I know nothing about.

? SpongeBob Squarepants: The First 100 Episodes
The first five seasons on 14 DVDs totaling 100 episodes and over 2200 minutes of SpongeBob. Goddamn.

? Sgt. Frog: Season One, Part I
So this is a very popular Japanese kids’ cartoon which features a ridiculous amount of Mobile Suit Gundam in-jokes and girls with large breasts, meaning it’s utterly unsuitable for American kids. Yet at the same time, it’s still a kids show, making it unsuitable for American adults. This is why it’s selling only slightly better than 30 Salsas Pegaditas en Video: Lo Nuevo y lo Mejor 2009.

? Zombies of the Stratosphere
And old sci-fi B movie and one of Leonard Nimoy’s first movies. I really wish it involved parachuting zombies, but I think its about martians or something.
