On the Shelves: Home Video Releases for Sept 09, 2014

DVD Releases this week

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

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) – This so far has been my third favorite Marvel movie behind only The Avengers and the first Iron Man. I was surprised how much I loved this movie. Just awesome.

Godzilla 2000 – I’ve only seen a few of the Godzilla movies (including that crap-tastic 1998 American version). This movie was sort of a reboot of the franchise by Toho but it was still the last of the Godzilla movies to get an official American release until the 2014 Godzilla movie.

Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (2002) / Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack – Toho is actually releasing alot of their Godzilla back catalog. Here’s another classic featuring one of my favorites, MECHA-GODZILLA!

The Great Race (1965) – One of the originators of what’s known as the wacky, celebrity filled road race movie personified by The Cannonball Run. This one was written and directed by Blake Edwards and featured Jack Lemmon, Natalie Wood, Tony Curtis and Peter Falk.

Pumpkinhead (1988) – Shout! Factory comes out with another awesome bit of 80s monster/slasher horror awesomeness. Other awesome 80s horror being released this week include the original 1980 Prom Night with Jaime Lee Curtis and 1981’s Graduation Day. But neither of those are a part of the Shout! Factory releases.

Young Frankenstein: 40th Anniversary Edition – For me, this is hands down Mel Brooks’ best movie and easily one of Gene Wilder’s best as well. I LOVE THIS MOVIE ON EVERY CONCEIVABLE LEVEL.

Seizure (1974) – This looks….odd. Oliver Stone’s first directorial effort starring Herve Villechaize, Martine Beswick, Christina Pickles and Troy Donahue.
