DVD Day: October 19th, 2010



? Predators
Adrien Brody, Machete, Morpheus and the kid from That ’70s Show fight Predators. I’m still a bit baffled by this one.

? Rocky Horror Picture Show 35th Anniversary Edition
On Blu-ray. I’m one of those people who genuinely love Rocky Horror, but lord almighty does it not need to be remade. It doesn’t need to be the focus of a Glee episode, either. Just… just leave it for the weirdos, please.

? Bionic Woman, Season One
The original one, not the new one.

? Seven Samurai
On Blu-ray.

? Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban but also The Goblet of Fire
Both available in their crazy extras-packed collector’s editions and on Blu-ray.

? Assault Girls
Some flick about Japanese girls fighting sandworms in the post-apocalyptic future from the guy who directed Ghost in the Shell. I know that might sound cool, but I’m pretty sure 75% of the movie is the girls morosely quoting Bible verses to each other.

? Pee-Wee’s Playhouse: The Complete Collection
Um, this might be an error, but the listing has this thing for $32. That’s 11 DVDs… for $32. Damn.
? Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods
A documentary on Grant Morrison.

? Video Games Live: Level 2
Huh, I didn’t know these concerts came out on DVD. Unfortunately, the Amazon listing has no description of what was played in the concert other than “music.”

? Vampire Girl Vs. Frankenstein Girl
One of the Japanese girl gorefest flicks. Anyone seen it?

? The Killing Machine
Dolph Lundgren is The Killing Machine in The Killing Machine, a movie starring — and directed by — Dolph Lundgren. You know what to do.

? Aaah! Zombies!
Sorry. I just liked the title.
