DVD Day: June 29th, 2010


?? Predator: Ultimate Hunter Edition
Blu-ray. Again. Oh, did you buy one of the shockingly shitty-looking,
extras-free, previously released Predator Blu-rays? Well, then
you might want to purchase this, which actually has a decent transfer
and most if not all of the DVD special features, as well as a few
others. So really, this is Predator: The Version We Should Have
Released Originally If We Weren’t Horribly Cheap Bastards

? Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
I’ve not seen this, not do I have any intention to. But someone please tell me that “Percy” is short for “Pericles” or something. I just can’t handle a kids adventure series where the hero is named “Percy.”

? Hot Tub Time Machine
What? It has time travel. Shut up.

? Eureka: Season 3.5
I’m not going to pretend I have anything to say about this.

? Warehouse 13: Season One
See “Eureka Season 3.5.” Although is this really the first time this has come out on DVD? Hmm.

? The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo
This show freaked me out as a kid, because I didn’t undertsnad cartoons could have endings. Even in theory. I mean, Scooby-Doo had to catch 13 ghosts — a very finite number, so he’d still be done one day. That realization rocked my world… was was rocked again when only 11 ghosts showed up during the show’s 13-episode run. Did Scooby leave two ghosts running free? Where is my closure? I WAS PROMISED 13 GHOSTS, HANNA-BARBERA.

? Red Vs. Blue: The Blood Gulch Chronicles
The first five seasons of RvB, which means 100 episodes, six DVDs, and 550 minutes. Still, $45 seems a lot to pay to watch someone else play Halo. 

? Samurai Avenger: The Blind Wolf
I don’t know anything about this Japanese flick other than there’s a quote on the cover that reads “You got your TARANTINO in my KUROSAWA!” This alone makes me wish ill for everyone involved in this movie’s production.
