DVD Day: April 6th, 2010


?? The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
On Blu-ray, but just the theatrical version. If you want the extended versions, hold off, because they’re comin’.

? Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans
I know this movie isn’t strictly nerdy, but it does have Nic Cage acting opposite an iguana and screaming “SHOOT HIM AGAIN HIS SOUL’S STILL DANCING” so I felt it was worth mentioning.

? Icons of Suspense: Hammer Films
Six flicks never before on DVD including These Are the Damned, Cash on Demand, The Snorkel, Stop Me Before I Kill!, Maniac and Never Take Candy From a Stranger. Peter Cushing’s in one of ’em.

? The Lord of the Rings
This is Ralph Bakshi’s animated version, conveniently on sale on Blu-ray on the day, purely to trick confused and/or unobservant people.

? Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series
On DVD or Blu-ray as well. I have no idea how this compares to the seemingly 18 other complete BSG sets, but apparently it has no booklet — meaning no episode list — and the packaging is crap.

? High Plains Invaders
James Marsters fights insect aliens in the oooold west. Hee hee!

? Little Hercules
Starring Hulk Hogan as Zeus. Ahem — STARRING HULK HOGAN AS ZEUS.
