DVD Day: July 5th, 2011


?? Eureka: Season 4.0
I know a lot of you love Eureka, and I certainly don’t have anything against it. But hopefully you’ll admit when Eureka season 4 is the #1 seller on Amazon that it’s not the most dynamic of DVD Days. Still, last week was pretty insane, so it’s probably good we have a week to catch up.

? 13 Assassins
I’ve heard nothing but great things about Takeshi Miike’s epic samurai flick. Can’t wait to see it.

? Hobo with a Shotgun
Watch this. ‘Nuff said.

? Transformers Japanese Collection: Headmasters
The first of the three Japan-only original Transformers cartoons. Shout Factory sent me a copy, so I’m actually going to do a review, but probably not until Thursday. Short version: It’s quite insane, and gets progressively more Japanese, but it’s still a lot of nostalgic fun.

? The Cape: Complete Series
The semi-beloved superhero series comes to DVD. I only watched a few episodes, and sometimes I loved it, and sometimes I hated it. Additionally, the show seemed to know how stupid it was sometimes, and somehow by wallowing in TV superhero tropes it seemed to transcend them… and then other times it just seemed dumb as hell. I honestly don’t know which more accurately describes the series as a whole. Thoughts?

? Bloodrayne: The Third Reich Unrated Director’s Cut
Finally, Uwe Boll’s non-masterpiece as he wanted you to see it. See, that just sounds more like a punishment to me than something I would expect to have to pay money for.

? Best of Sesame Spoofs 1 & 2
I honestly don’t know what the hell this is or what’s on it, but I still felt it was worth mentioning, just in case it had “Spider-Monster” on it.
