DVD Day: May 4th, 2010


?? Hamlet
So, remember that Hamlet that starred David Tennant and Patrick Stewart that aired last week? Now it’s on DVD and Blu-ray. Class yourself up.

? Doctor Who: The Curse of Peladon, The Monster of Peladon and The Masque of Mandragora
Stories 61, 73 and 86, respectively. The first two are Pertwee, the last stars Baker.

? Iron Man: The Complete Animated Series
This is the ’90s version, which my several accounts is terrible. However, the ’90s Iron Man Toy Biz action figures had the best assortment, so I’m cutting it a little slack.

? Invader Zim Season 1
If somehow you missed it when Media Blasters released it a few years ago and they and Hot Topic made a million, jillion dollars.

? Dragonball Season 4
The li’l Goku vs. King Piccolo saga, which ain’t bad at all. So much more fun than DBZ, which, by the way, has its Dragon Box 3 come out today (it’s Cell Saga stuff), if you for some reason want to buy it one more time before Dragonball Kai gets released.

? Iron Man: Armored Adventures Complete Season 1
And this is the modern Iron Man cartoon, all CG and starring Iron Teen. I haven’t watched. I prefer my Tony Starks to be drunk and wearing porn s’taches.

? Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1980s, Vol. 1
With a bit of Thundarr, some Dragon’s Lair, Flinstone Kids, what I think is Monchichi, Kwicky Koala, and at least one episode of the Mr. T cartoon.

? Elektra
On Blu-ray. Because God hates nerds.

? Vampegeddon
“Chased out of the old world, the dark vampire lord Giovanni flees to the
American southwest where he sets up a new brood. Longshank, Brittan’s
premier vampire slayer follows him here, and in a final confrontation in
the Arizona desert both are killed. A hundred years later Melissa, a
gorgeous, goth, lesbian college student, is obsessed with becoming a
vampire and escaping her terrible home life. … When she buys an old, evil
book at a creepy garage sale she finally has the key she has been
searching for.” You know, I was prepared to laugh, but that title is so stupid it’s actually turned the corner and become kind of awesome again.
