On the Shelves: DVD Releases for Dec 18, 2012

Some of the DVD/Blu-Ray releases this week.


Total Recall (2012) – A re-adaptation of the original Philip K Dick story, We Can Remember It for You Wholesale, which was first adapted into the Arnold Schwarzenegger action schlock-fest also called Total Recall.  This is actually a really good sci-fi action movie if you can divest it from the earlier movie.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Plus, Bryan Cranston plays the bad guy and he’s awesome.


Masters of the Universe – 30th Anniversary Limited Edition – A mega multi-media collection of Master of the Universe merchandise (hello, alliteration).  This gi-normous set includes the 1983, 1990 and 2002 He-man cartoons on DVD, a CD soundtrack containing music from the 1983 Filmation He-Man series, a gold Power Sword replica, a brand new documentary called Fans of MOTU and a collectible booklet containing 180+ pages of photos and info about all this MOTU madness.  And the box is pretty bad ass if you ask me.


Deathship – Another cheesy horror movie (from 1980) with a great poster and a terrible, yet awesome, premise.  A ship mysteriously appears out of the fog to rescue a group of people who were in a shipwreck.  Little do they know that this silent, black ship was once a Nazi torture ship and has been stalking the high seas for victims ever since.  This movie exists and I must see it.


Flight of the Navigator – A boy is knocked unconscious and when he wakes up he realizes that it’s 8 years later and he hasn’t aged a day.  He tries to figure out what happened to him and why does he seem to have a connection to a futuristic space ship that was discovered by the government.  Classic Disney movie from 1986.


Premium Rush – In my head, this is either a sequel or a remake of the 1986 movie Quicksilver starring Kevin Bacon.

    Seen Death Ship a long time ago. Around the age of 10. I remember we watched it at my friends b-day party. One of the kids told his mom about the nude shower scene and my friends mom got a phone call from his parents.
