?? Daria: The Complete Animated Series
One of MTV’s cult favorite cartoons, long overdue. I’m curious to know how many female TR readers — and male, for that matter — are losing their minds that it’s finally available.

? Legion
The movie about Paul Bettany fighting angels with machine guns. Also there are demons. How Paul W.S. Anderson didn’t direct this film I’ll never know.

? Daybreakers
The movie about a world ruled by vampires, who have human farms that are nearing total depletion. It’s a weird, neat concept, and the movie also stars Willem Dafoe as the leader of some human refugees. I have no recollection of it ever hitting theaters. Do you?

? Deadliest Warrior: Season One
Man, what a great show. Forget the silly posturing and smack talk; if you think you don’t want to see what ancient weapons can to do to human flesh — thanks to a bevy of scientific tests and some very creepy models — you are lying to yourself.

? M
The classic German horror flick on Blu-ray.

? Malice in Wonderland
The acting powerhouse that is Maggie Grace stars in a modern reinterpretation of Alice in Wonderland. The white rabbit is a cabbie named Whitey! Is your mind blown? My mind is blown!

? Mr. Magoo in Sherwood Forest
WHO ON GOD’S GREEN EARTH IS BUYING MR. MAGOO DVDS

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
