On the Shelves: DVD Releases for Sep 25, 2012
Some of the DVD/Blu-Ray releases this week.
Marvel’s The Avengers – You may not have heard of this little indie, grindhouse release, but…okay, I can’t even get through that sentence. This is the biggest release of the week, if not the month or even the year. Looking at the 2012 movies I’ve seen up to this point in the year, this is *SPOILER ALERT* most likely going to be my favorite movie of the year. I don’t see how anything else can top it. It’s the third highest grossing movie of all time and it’s miles better than #1 and #2 on that list (Avatar and Titanic, respectively).
Bond 50: Complete 22 Film Collection – Here you go, everything from Dr No to Quantum of Solace on Blu-Ray. Some of these have already been released but there are several that have NEVER been released on Blu-Ray in the US. Lots of extras and documentaries as well.
American Horror Story: Season 1 - I’ve not seen this show about a family that moves into an old home, called “Murder House”, by the locals. They discover legions of trapped spirits and the stories behind them. It sounds good and I hear it’s pretty creepy. I know some of the advertising materials look pretty creepy.
Complete Lone Wolf & Cub series – I’ve mentioned this series before when Shogun Assassin was released on Blu-Ray with 4 other Lone Wolf movies. The difference is that these are all of the original 6 Japanese movies with subtitles. The previous Shogun Assassin movie was a 1980 release that was recut from two other Lone Wolf movies. Plus, there was no Japanese track with subtitles. The entire thing was dubbed. I think this is going to be the best release of all the original Japanese films. I’m not entirely sure if this collection contains that 1980 Shogun Assassin cut or not.
FDR: American Badass – And then this movie happened. Point your eyeballs at the REDBAND trailer and drink this movie in.
Strippers vs Werewolves – And this one happened. Trailer for this is here. Not quite as crazy-awesome as FDR up there, but interesting nonetheless.
