?? District 9

A tad uneven but wildly enjoyable nonetheless, this is the biggest and best release this week. Who knew that aliens + shantytown = blockbuster?

? Kyle XY: The Complete Third and Final Season

The final season of the ABC Family series that I have no opinion on comes to DVD. Fans of the show are pissed that the cliffhanger finale left several key plot points unresolved. A featurette on the set aims to calm some of these folks down. So take it easy, XYers.

? Ichi

A blind female samurai kicks ass and learns about life. Haven’t we all been there?

? Guyver: The Complete Series (Viridian Collection)

The question is, will this make you forget about the Mark Hamill live-action film? Oh wait, you already have.

? Taxi: The Final Season

 Comedy nerds have been waiting for this for a very long time. Contains the epic “Jim’s Mario’s” episode, easily one of Christopher Lloyd’s finest moments.

? Spice and Wolf: Season One

A cute looking anime show about the exploits of a wolf deity and her travelling merchant pal based on the continuing novella series by Isuna Hasekura.

? Family Guy Presents: Something, Something, Something Dark Side

So it’s come to this, huh? What a depressing note to end on.
