(For previous weeks' lists, click on the "DVD" thread icon, or use these individual links: week beginning
1/2 - 1/9 - 1/16 - 1/23 - 1/30
2/6 - 2/13 - 2/20 - 2/27
3/6 - 3/13 - 3/20 - 3/27

Hello.

Upon further review, this week doesn't hold much excitement, but anyway here now are the 289 DVD, Blu-Ray and HD DVD releases Amazon coughed up for you for the week beginning Tuesday, May 29.

For those of you who haven't endured one of these lists before, it works thusly:

Hovering over links should provide you with Amazon's current price.

CLICKING on those links will take you to the Amazon shopping cart with a friendly referral from The W - consider making your purchase through us and it'll place a few coins in our tip jar!

Because Amazon sometimes can't come correct with the information, you will see some exposition from me (or, more likely, a bad joke) in addition to the listing along with IMDb icons (which can be clicked to take you to a movie's IMDb listing) or tv.com icons (which can be clicked to take you to the relevant episode list from tv.com)

All links should open in new windows so you can come right back here after your research! (If you want - we're totally flexible about that!)

Please tell a friend (or vote 'em up Digg/Netscape/&c. with a click of the icon of your choice at the bottom) about this post because it takes me a long time and I'm a big fan of more eyeballs!

Please feel free to add a reply and share your two cents about any of the listings you see here - show off your impressive knowledge, share your opinion about something you've seen, something you're looking forward to seeing, or make your own crappy jokes which are better than mine!

We also hope that if you buy something, you come back and tell us what you thought about it - nobody's really done that yet, but hope springs eternal!

If you have something to say but don't want to say it publicly (or register for the board), you can also email me direct at CRZ.DVD@gmail.com!

Gentlemen, start your engines...

Man, this is a slow week, there's virtually nothing here that I have seen or want to see.

With all the CRAP on this list you pick on Kyra?
Yes I do watch this show, not enough though.
I wouldn't buy the DVD. Don't like/obsess about Kyra that much.

I did just buy the 2nd seaon of Dead Like Me for $14.95 and the 4th season of The Pretender for $19.95. I don't have the first seasons, nor the time presently to watch them but at those prices it was kind of hard to pass them up.

Yes, I am an idiot.

What in the BLUE HELL are Backyardigans? Preppie Cardigan Wearing Backyard Wrestlers? (Who presumably wrestle on a trampoline while sipping tea with the pinkie finger extended?)

Yes, I do like the number THREE

Have to say it THREE times, in fact.

WAIT! The Undertaker has PALS?
SINCE WHEN?
I mean even if we are not talking about the wrestling Undertaker, what kind of self-respecting Undertaker would have PALS?

(Unless of course that's how you refer to your small silver balls of churning death in which case carry on.)

I read a review of this past week in a paper, but I don't remember which - ah, Daily Herald, yea, that review wasn't actually so good.

Ryne Sandberg: June 23, 1984--5 for 6, 2 HR, 7 RBI - of course. This is very much like the Undertaker/Mankind HITC match, where everyone who's ever wanted to see has seen it, but you have to include it
Rick Sutcliffe: 1984 NLCS game 1--no ER allowed, one HR hit - first post season game in 40 years, last win of his huge year, this works
Andre Dawson: Aug. 1, 1987--3 for 4, 3 HR, 5 RBI - I have no recollection of this game. You need something from this season, one where he gets all the RBIs to win 5-3 works. He had a 7 RBI game this season too, but this was a much closer game
Mark Grace: 1989 NLCS game 2--3 for 4, 4 RBI - this as much Grace as the one good game from this series.
Kerry Wood: May 6, 1988--20 strikeouts - Yea, this belongs on DVD, but you've kinda got to put in a closet for five more years before it becomes non-painful to watch.
Sammy Sosa: September 13, 1998--61st and 62nd home runs - this is on here because Sammy tied up Mark at 62 for this moment, before Mark pulled away for good. (And it was an extra inning game.) It's historically important, but there are much bigger Sammy performances.
Greg Maddux: Aug. 7, 2004--300th career win - No. A 5 IP, 4 R allowed perfomance isn't really the Maddux performance you want to keep. There were better starts in his second stint, much less his first one.
Derrek Lee: June 1, 2005--5 for 5, 1 HR, 4 RBI - there's gotta be better Cub games that don't feature Enrqiue Wilson and Neifi Perez batting ahead of him.

    Chicago Cubs Legends - Great Games Collector's Edition Surprisingly, 8 discs - I anxiously await/hope Cubs will review the features listing


Speaking as *A Cub fan, This selection is fine for the stars, but what about some good old fashioned Wrigley Field madness, the stuff Steve Goodman wrote songs about?

Thursday, May 17, 1979 (D) at Wrigley Field "Ride the Wild Wind" game

Phils 7 0 8 2 4 0 1 0 0 1 - 23 24 2
Cubs 6 0 0 3 7 3 0 3 0 0 - 22 26 2

I know they had this on tape, it was a February "Cuddle Up With the Cubbies" special, with a 2-run Ernie Banks homer spliced on to the end.

Thursday, July 28, 1977 (D) at Wrigley Field

Reds 6 0 4 0 0 1 2 1 0 0 0 1 0 - 15 19 1
Cubs 4 3 1 2 0 0 0 3 1 0 0 1 1 - 16 24 3

Features Rick Reuschel, pinch-hitter scoring the winning run, a relief pitcher hitting a triple in the bottom of the first, and Bill Buckner making the play on a critical grounder to first.

Saturday, September 12, 1998 (D) at Wrigley Field

Brew 0 0 8 0 2 0 2 0 0 - 12 16 0
Cubs 0 2 0 0 1 2 4 1 5 - 15 18 2

And an old-fashioned mind-boggling comeback game in a rare playoff year. Orlando Merced's Cub highlight.

Best part of this game: the Cubs had far too many OFs, so at the end we had the double-play combo of Jose Cardenal and Bobby Murcer. Fun for Strat-o-matic players!

Too bad they had to put any Mark Grace in there, I bet it was tough to find something that wasn't a double play or a walk-with-men-in-scoring-position.

Should've put in the Milt Pappas no-hitter, the wild-card play-in game...many more options...

So, should I buy this?

I've never seen the Sandberg game ever, or any of the games from the eighties, actually. I think I used to have Sosa's 62 HR game on tape, but that's probably been dubbed over for awhile. The Wood game seems like it'd be a nice thing to watch when I'm feeling down and have liquor handy, and I missed going the Maddux game by a day on one side or the other (it was in SF, right?) Whichever game Wood pitched in that series was the first one I'd ever seen them lose in PacBell/SBC/AT&T, and I think also the first one he'd started and not struck out ANY one.) The Lee game seems kinda blah. I agree that there's probably a better Maddux game to pick, but this one has the big round number to go with it.

The list price of $85 is well too much for this - I know it's 8 discs, but it shouldn't cost $10 per game, especially some of those games (and a lot of the special features seem like old rain delay theater clips, back when we did better than the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.)

The actual price of $60 still seems a little too much, but I'm not one who buys DVDs that often. If it was $50, I'd get it.

Thinking about rain delay theater, what I really want is that 1984 retrospective they used to show all the time.

Only thing I watched from this week was Off Screen, a Dutch psychological suspense film starring Jan Declair (from the excellent film Character) and Jeroen Krabb (from the also excellent The Fugitive). It's okay if you like stuff like Memento -- and who doesn't? -- it isn't as good, but that's the general ballpark it's playing in.

I want to mention a couple of movies I forgot -- last week, as mentioned in this thread (The W), two really great films were released for the first time on DVD -- Straight Time and Prince of the City. If you like '70s crime films like Serpico or The French Connection, you really owe it to yourself to check these out.

Straight Time is based on the book No Beast So Fierce by Edward Bunker, a long-time convict who wrote novels about prison life (and also played Mr. Blue in Reservoir Dogs). It stars Dustin Hoffman as a parolee trying to go straight and failing -- Gary Busey and Harry Dean Stanton play his buddies and M. Emmett Walsh plays his parole officer -- so, clearly, you can't go wrong.

Prince of the City is about police corruption -- it's sort of the flip side of Serpico (both were directed by Sidney Lumet). It stars Treat Williams and Jerry Orbach -- I don't think I've seen them better in anything else, ever.

Finally, I watched a documentary called Whole, as mentioned in CRZ's thread here (The W). As he mentions, it's about people who want to be amputees, and a couple of people who have taken that step and become amputees -- one using dry ice, another a shotgun. They all have deep feelings that one of their limbs does not "belong" to them; that it's a foreign object that isn't part of them. A phrase that comes up several times is that they, paradoxically, feel "more complete" without the offending limb. It doesn't come across like a weird sexual fetish thing -- these people are totally normal except for the fact that they have a mental disorder that tells them that they would be happier without one of their limbs.

It's not a particularly well-made documentary from a technical standpoint, but the subject matter is so singularly bizarre -- this is something that never, ever occurred to me before -- that it's worth watching. There's no graphic footage, but there are some graphic descriptions, and some will find the subject matter extremely disturbing.
