DVD Day: October 13th, 2009
?? Futurama: The Complete Collection
Bender’s collectible noggin contains 18 DVDs, which includes all four TV seasons and the four DVD movies for a reasonable $130. A great deal if you haven’t bought them all already. Which you have.
? Legend of the Seeker: The First Season
What? I didn’t even know Legend of the Seeker had started airing, but it’s out on DVD? Weird. Apparently this adaptation of Terry Goodkind’s fantasy series strays far off the reservation, so fantasy fans, take note.
? Drag Me to Hell
By all indications, Sam Raimi’s latest flick and return to his horror roots is awesome. It’s at the top of my Netflix queue for that very reason.
? The Mighty Boosh Special Edition DVD
All three seasons of the surreal British comedy series currently airing on Adult Swim (or it was recently, at least) in one box set with one extra bonus disc, I think. I’ve watched the first two seasons, and I don’t know. Once I decided it wasn’t a comedy but more just a chronicle of fever dreams, I enjoyed it a lot more.
? Marvel Animation 6-Film Set
There’s absolutely no indication what’s in this set, so let me guess: the two Ultimates cartoons, the excellent Hulk Vs., the Doctor Strange and Iron Man cartoons no one saw and… that awful Next Avengers. Guess which one of these properties is not on the box art?
? Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown
A documentary on that fun-loving hipster H.P. Lovecraft, including interviews with directors John Carpenter and Guillermo del Toro, amongst others.
? Playmobil: The Secret of Pirate Island
Looks like Playmobil wants some of that sweet direct-to-DVD cartoon movie cash that Lego’s been enjoying. Also, it looks terrible.
