DVD Day: January 19th, 2010


?? Gamer
I remember this live-action FPS movie/Running Man knock-off looking like it could be so-bad-it’s-potentially-good fun. Can anyone confirm or refute this?

? Whiteout
I remember this movie adaptation of the Greg Rucka comic being announced and then — nothing. I assume this is not a good sign.

? Pandorum
Look, I love Dennis Quaid, but when he’s the biggest draw your sci-fi film has, well… yeah.

? Defying Gravity
Yet another primetime sci-fi show killed within its infancy that I never remember airing because the major networks don’t promote sci-fi series at all. This complete series set includes five episodes that never got aired.

? 2081
This is a 25-minute adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s short story “Harrison Bergeron.” I love Vonnegut, but that’s my least favorite short story by him. And I’m not buying a 25-minute DVD of anything ever.

? Scooby’s All-Star Laff-a-Lympics Vol. 1
Four whole episodes on one DVD. Even though the whole damn series could fit on one DVD if anyone gave a shit. I don’t.

? Kingdom of the Spiders
’70s-era William Shatner fights giant spiders. From Shout Factory, so it’s packed with far more extras and love than a ’70s movie starring Shatner and giant spiders should have.

? Fraggle Rock: The Animated Series
This release contains the complete Fraggle Rock cartoon. Unfortunately, it’s still the Fraggle Rock cartoon.

? Nunsploitation
Three nun-tastic stories of nuns versus demons, nuns versus lust, and nuns versus lesbian lust. Really, I just love the word “nunsploitation.”

? Super Robot Red Baron
An Ultraman knock-off from the creators of Ultraman. Do you need another ’70s Japanese live-action giant robot show in your life?
