DVD Day: February 8th, 2011


?? Doctor Who: The Movie
Finally, the American-made Doctor Who TV movie, available for legal purchase and viewing. I’m not buying this, but I am looking forward to when it hits Netflix Instant, so I can see it for the first time since 1994 1996. I’m very curious how it holds up, especially now that I’ve seen some actual British Who.

? Paranormal Activity 2

? Ong-Bak 3
The mediocre sequel to the unbelievably awesome Ong-Bak 2. Blame Tony Jaa, who went totally batshit insane while making Ong-Bak 2, and disappeared for months to practice black magic in the jungles of Cambodia (allegedly), forcing the producers to split the film into two movies in desperate hopes of making some of their money back. When Jaa was found (he possibly would’ve never come back), he made insane demands of the studio before being kidnapped by thugs (also allegedly), and then finished the making the movie quietly and without much effort. And when the film was done, he joined a Buddhist monastery and shaved his head. I’d much rather see a movie about the making of Ong-Bak 3 than Ong-Bak 3, frankly.

? Doctor Who: The Mutants
Pertwee, story #63.

? Super Hero Squad Show: The Quest for the Infinity Sword Vol. 3

? Repo Chick
Alex Cox’s semi-sequel to his cult classic Repo Man is #97 of this week’s biggest selling DVDs. This is significantly behind DVDs like Barney: Shapes and Colors All Around (#95), Ocean Odyssey: The Blue Realm (#86), Air Show Extreme (#73), something called Chrome Shelled Regios Part II (#68) and Vienna Philharmonic: New Year’s Day Concert 2011 (#54). Sad, really.
