Hello.

There are 365 days in a year, and if you spent one day looking at each of the coming week's new DVD, Blu-ray, HD DVD and UMD releases in this list, you and I wouldn't be back for EXACTLY ONE YEAR. Fortunately for you, it didn't take me a year to put together this list of releases and reviews! Unfortunately for ME, it starts all over again in under a week, so without any delay let's move right to the

PICK OF THE WEEK: Whose Line Is It Anyway? - Seasons 1 & 2 (The W at Amazon) (UK, 1988-90) Later shown in the early days of Comedy Central, 30 episodes on 4 discs with lots of Clive Anderson, Stephen Fry, Mike McShane, Josie Lawrence, Tony Slattery, Peter Cook, Griff Rhys-Jones, the guy YOU really liked that I didn't include because I'm a bastard, and dozens more - I used to get confused because the host of "Survivor" looked nothing like Greg Proops

After Dark Horror Fest Not quite all of the "8 Films to Die For" (did they have to take SNOOP DOGG's film out?) this seems ... overpriced to me - includes these individual titles:
Dark Ride (2006) Jamie-Lynn DiScala is in it - I tell you this because you're probably one of those people who feels she is "so fucking hot"
Reincarnation (Rinne - Japan, 2005)
The Hamiltons (2006)
Wicked Little Things (2006)
Unrest (2006)
The Gravedancers (2006)
Penny Dreadful (2006)

If you like ANY of those, you might be a good customer for:
Cinema of Death Cult Epics brings "5 underground films" but fails to name any of them on the Amazon page - but if you go to their page (cultepics.com) (which also includes some fine smut), you'll find that this is a limited edition of 2500, and the five films are shorts: Adoration (Belgium/France, 1996) , Dislandia (2005), Pig (1999), Hollywood Babylon (2000) and Le Pome (France, 2005) - adds up to about an hour and a half

Color Me Kubrick (2007) Yes, the same one that opened Friday - John Malkovich

Curse of the Golden Flower (Man Cheng Jin Dai Huang Jin Jia - Hong Kong/China, 2007) Chow-Yun Fat, Gong Li - directed by Yimou Zhang
Curse of the Golden Flower (UMD)

DAME JUDI DENCH OF THE WEEK:
The Judi Dench Collection Four decades of various BBC productions (click there for the list 'cause I'm LAZY) starring the Dame - separately available is:
The Cherry Orchard (1981 and 1962 Versions) (UK) 2 disc set - Judi Dench in the 1981 one , and probably also in the one not in the IMDb (a Royal Shakesperian Company production, says the cover!)

DOUBLE FEATURE OF THE WEEK:

SHORTS!

WE'LL KEEP COLORIZING THEM UNTIL SOMEBODY DECIDES IT'S A GOOD IDEA:
Little Rascals in COLOR! Box Set Before you complain, they include black&white versions for you, too. Includes:
Little Rascals: Best of Our Gang Includes "uncut" (racist, say some) "Kid from Borneo" (1933) , "Hide & Shriek" (1938) and three more shorts
Little Rascals: Best of Spanky Five more uncut shorts, including "Shrimps for a Day" (1934) and "Choo-Choo!" (1932)

Three Stooges: Greatest Routines 35 bits hosted by Mike Nelson and Kevin Murphy - hopefully not entirely colorized
Three Stooges: Extreme Rarities No help at all, although Curly's first appearance is hyped on the sticker - colorized AND black&white versions

Swing Parade of 1946 (1946) The Three Stooges are the high point of this musical, so that's probably why this is being marketed as another Stooges DVD - colorized and black&white

Ok, here's what I'll comment on.

"Whose Line" was at its best when Paul Merton was on, though Tony Slattery was a delightful fop whenever he appeared.

"One Foot in the Grave" was the inspiration for the 90s sitcom "Cosby". So it's probably a lot less like "Curb Your Enthusiasm" than they want you to think.

I once took a TV writing course from a staff writer of "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman". I was the only person in the room who had even heard of the show.

Re: "Full House" - I question the wisdom of buying any season set of a show that one can watch in reruns in perpetuity. But that's me.

Not really, it's gotta be better then the last one featuring Roger Clinton!



WRONG! I need this pretty badly. The movie's quite entertaining in the same way as LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT and THRILLER: A CRUEL PICTURE was... yeah, I'm a sick puppy.

Already waiting for the postman to deliver my Shield, season 5. Should get here by the weekend, which leaves me three days to watch it(again) before the new season starts.

I hope you like it, because I really wanted to buy it today from my work. But 40 dollars for 11 episodes (and that's on sale as it's supposed to be 45 bucks) is probably just too much for me to justify the purchase. Actually I'm still mulling it over, and it does have commentaries on all the episodes, so that might sell me. I only wish this set was perhaps 25 or 30.

I must say that I haven't seen a week where quite this many big (as in it was in the theaters) movies have come out today. Happy Feet, Pursuit of Happiness, Turistas, Van Wilder, Children of Men. Plus continuing DVD sets of Full House, The Shield and Seventh Heaven have made this a big week for movies and a possible big headache for me working in my electronics department.

I could be mistaken, but I do not see Justice League Unlimited: Season 2 (the final JLU season, as they combined two seasons to form season one earlier).

It just came out today. Those who are fans of the work of Bruce Timm or DC comics I *HIGHLY* reccomend it.

To celebrate the passing of the Troll Amnesty (and for otherwise no reason at all), I present to you the very best of Trolling here on The W. This Troll Moment of the Week is brought to you by one of the greatest(?) Trolls to come The W;

"TopTenPro" , who brought us the following such pieces of wisdom as: br>TopTenPro: I know this is going to be banished, but there is a point I want to make. Why is there not a woman that wants to be loved as much as I want to love?"

CRZ: "Here now are the Top Ten cruel responses I could whip up to this post:" (followed by a rather funny list).
