?? Green Lantern
I’ve already said my piece about the extremely not good Green Lantern movie here, albeit in the most spoiler-ish way possible. Please note I’ve linked to the “Extended Cut” of the movie, which may make a signficant difference and improve the film immensely. Or it might just be more crap. I’m guessing the latter. NO

TE: Goddammit, this is being released on Friday. I don’t know why studios have all of sudden decided it’s cool to release shit on Friday when they’ve been released DVDs on Tuesday only for more than a decade. So blame them, not me.

? Chuck: The Complete Fourth Season
I stopped watching Chuck at the beginning of season 4. Just wasn’t feelin’ it anymore. This isn’t really a judgment, it’s my excuse why I have nothing pertinent to say about this set.

? Jem and the Holograms: The Truly Outrageous Complete Series
11 DVDs, 65 episodes, $57, with a ton of extras including the original writer’s bible. Hell, I’d say that’s worth an extra “truly.”

? Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1: Season 1
N?e Aqua Teen Hunger Force. I have no idea what the difference is.

? Doctor Who: The David Tennant Years
All three Tennant seasons, all his specials, all the horrible animated specials, and in a very snazzy box, all for way, way less then if you bought them all separately.

? The Best of Green Lantern

One DVD containing one Superman: TAS episode, two Justice League episodes, one The Batman episode, and one Batman: Brave and the Bold episode. Weird.

? Doctor Who: The Talons of Weng-Chiang
Story 91, and apparently one of the best of the Tom Baker era.

? Maniac Cop
On Blu-ray. Starring a very young Bruce Campbell and the always disturbing looking Robert Z’Dar. Guess which one is the maniac cop.

? Snuff Box
The BBC comedy series starring The IT Crowd‘s Matt Berry and The Mighty Boosh‘s Rich Fulcher. This video should tell you everything you need to know about it.

And in porn news, Babe Runner and Ghost Lusters come out today. Babe Runner is apparently new, while Ghost Lusters appears to be a “classic” porn parody, meaning the participants likely have pubic hair. I can’t find any trailers, safe for work or otherwise, so if you’re interested in these, best of luck to you.
