Hello.

A healthy 429 releases greet you this week - that's 406 DVDs, 22 Blu-Ray and even one new HD DVD. Unless noted otherwise, release date is Tuesday, June 24!

Starting right off with a highly anticipated

PICK OF THE WEEK
Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs (The W at Amazon) (direct to DVD, 2008) Picking up where the last movie left off, another four episodes' worth of yarn spinning. Early reviews suggest it may not be nearly as great as "Bender's Big Score" was, but I can't help but want this DVD IMMEDIATELY because after all, it's still new "Futurama."

RUNNER-UP OF THE WEEK
Xanadu - Magical Musical Edition (With Complete Soundtrack CD) (1980) I'm a sucker.



MOVIES OF THE WEEK

"BIG" MOVIES

The Spiderwick Chronicles (Widescreen Edition) (2008) Freddie Highmore, Sarah Bolger - a Nickelodeon feature I didn't hear about but which was probably wildly successful with kids who were allowed into PG films
The Spiderwick Chronicles (Two-Disc Special Edition)
The Spiderwick Chronicles (Full Screen Edition)
The Spiderwick Chronicles [Blu-ray]

10,000 B.C. (USA/New Zealand, 2008)
10,000 B.C. [Blu-ray]

MOVIES FOR KIM OF THE WEEK
Persepolis (France/USA, 2007) Animated. I have to confess I had no idea what this was until Kim said "ooh, Persepolis is coming out!" So I totally cheated with this pick. I feel I can share that with you now.
Persepolis [Blu-ray]

In Bruges (UK/Belgium, 2008)

Definitely, Maybe (Widescreen) (UK/USA/France, 2008)
Definitely Maybe (Full Screen)

The Hammer (2007) Adam Carolla - we're definitely way past the "movies for Kim" part if you haven't noticed by now

Charlie Bartlett (2007) Anton Yelchin, Robert Downey Jr., Hope Davis

Honeydripper (2007)

Careless (2007) Just whose finger IS this, anyway? Colin Hanks, Fran Kranz, Rachel Blanchard, Tony Shalhoub, Godfrey, Brian Posehn, Michael McShane

The Tattooist (New Zealand/Singapore, 2007)

Bonneville (2006) Jessican Lange, Kathy Bates, Joan Allen - and a cover that screams "chick flick"

Bigg Snoop Dogg Presents: Tha Adventures of the Blue Carpet Treatment Snoopadelic animated debut - directed by (ha) Snoop Scorsese - more info and trailer at Code Black (codeblackentertainment.com)
Snoop Doggs:Adventures of the Blue Ca Same thing, different distributor?

#435: The Furies - Criterion Collection (1950) More info at Criterion (criterion.com)
#436: Before the Rain - Criterion Collection (Republic of Macedonia/France/UK, 1994) More info at Criterion

CLASSICS OF THE WEEK (BESIDES XANADU)

Man of a Thousand Faces (1957) James Cagney IS Lon Chaney, Dorothy Malone, Jane Greer
Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (Doppelgnger - UK, 1969) So there's this planet JUST LIKE EARTH except EXACTLY on the other side of the sun as THIS planet. With me so far?
Simon, King of the Witches (1971) - Dark Sky Films (catalog.darkskyfilms.com)
Heroes (1977) Henry Winkler, Sally Field, Harrison Ford - Fonz AND Han Solo? Hot dog!

DOUBLE FEATURE OF THE WEEK

Monty Python DVD 2-pack Bundle Holy Grail and Life of Brian (6/30)

HIDEOUSLY EXPENSIVE COLLECTIONS OF THE WEEK

June 08 Double Features Mix Must be a whole buncha stuff slapped into one listing, but unfortunately we have no list. Still, by far it's easily the MOST EXPENSIVE ITEM OF THE WEEK

Blu-ray Kids and Family Bundle (Ice Age / Alvin and the Chipmunks /Night at the Museum) [Blu-ray]
Blu-ray War Bundle (Battle of Britain / A Bridge Too Far / Flyboys) [Blu-ray]
Blu-ray Suspense and Thriller Bundle (The Usual Suspects / Speed / Phone Booth) [Blu-ray]
Blu-ray Sci-Fi Bundle (I Robot / Independence Day / Day After Tomorrow) [Blu-ray]
Blu-ray Comedy Bundle (Juno / The Devil Wears Prada / Mrs. Doubtfire) [Blu-ray]
Blu-ray Comedy Bundle (Simpsons the Movie / Me, Myself and Irene / Meet the Spartans) [Blu-ray]
Blu-ray War Classics Bundle (Patton / The Longest Day / Sand Pebbles) [Blu-ray]
Blu-ray Horror Bundle (The Hills Have Eyes 2 / 28 Weeks Later / 28 Days Later) [Blu-ray]
Blu-ray War Bundle (Rescue Dawn / Windtalkers / Behind Enemy Lines) [Blu-ray]
Blu-ray Superhero Bundle (Fantastic Four / Fantastic Four - Rise of the Silver Surfer / X-Men 3 - The Last Stand) [Blu-ray]
Blu-ray Action Bundle (Robocop / Predator / Terminator) [Blu-ray] Some of these choices are kind of baffling. I guess calling them all "Stuff We Had Laying Around Bundle," while accurate, wouldn't have tested as well

IMPORTS OF QUESTIONABLE LEGALITY AND DUBIOUS QUALITY

These all come from Panorama and are Asian imports. Most are foreign films, but a few are not. Amazon's not good about letting you know that some of these MIGHT be encoded as "Region 3" titles, which means your Region 1 DVD player will politely decline to play it. If it DOES get played, you'll probably notice that almost none of these were mastered from original/decent source material. So basically...you REALLY gotta want to see these films, and this may be your only way at the moment. Stupid rights holders!
