?? Summer Wars
An anime movie highly recommend by Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley.

? Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol
The Doctor teaches Dumbledore about the meaning of Christmas or something. I was too drunk on Christmas weekend to remember to watch.

? The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu
Remember that clip I posted a week ago? Well, now the Lovecraftian horror-comedy is on DVD. You know what to do.

? He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Season 1
I know MotU’s been released on DVD before, but it’s been out of print for a while. In case you missed it, here ’tis. It’s $20 for 65 episodes, which is pretty damned good deal.

? Dungeons & Dragons Two-Movie Collection
Yes, you can own both live-action D&D movies on Blu-ray. Or you can shit on a $20 bill. Which is the worse investment?

? C.O.P.S. Volume 1
32 episodes for $15. Again, in case you missed the previous release.

? Oppai Chambara: Striptease Samurai Squad
Oh, Japan.

? Storm Warriors
The sequel to the awesome Hong Kong martial arts fantasy flick Storm Riders. The fact that it is less popular than Striptease Samurai Squad doesn’t surprise me, but it does depress me.

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.
