This Tuesday (except where noted), a whopping 295 DVDs and semi-whopping 30 Blu-ray releases are brand new! Here's the list of all of 'em!

I'm a little too excited because it's a much larger section than normal for the

PICK OF THE WEEK
My Breakfast with Blassie (The W at Amazon) (1983) In an homage to "My Dinner with Andre," Andy Kaufman meets Classy Freddie Blassie. NUFF SAID.

RUNNER-UP
What's Up, Tiger Lily? (USA/Japan, 1966) Proof that Woody Allen invented Rifftrax...I think - Allen, Louise Lasser and friends overdub Japanese film "International Secret Police: Key of Keys," (Kokusai Himitsu Keisatsu: Kagi no Kagin - Japan, 1965) turning it into a corker of a spy thriller revolving around... an egg salad recipe - more info and trailer at Image (image-entertainment.com)

SPEAKING OF RIFFTRAX...
Rifftrax: Night of the Living Dead - from the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000!
RiffTrax: Reefer Madness - from the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000!
RiffTrax: Little Shop of Horrors - from the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000!
RiffTrax Shorts Volume 1 - from the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000!

RiffTrax: House on Haunted Hill - from the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000!

I always thought it would be neat if remakes of films would include the original version, like the initial release of "Meet Joe Black", which included the original "Death Takes a Holiday" as an extra. Imagine "Scarface" with the original Howard Hawks version included!

(How does one add amazon links? Is there an easy way?)

I'm sure it's a rights issue problem doing it (it always is) but I totally agree. I believe in this case Allen actually re-edited the original film as well as redubbing, so it's not like it could just be an extra audio track...it'd probably have to be a separate disc.

    (How does one add amazon links? Is there an easy way?)
Yes. You have to grab the ten character ASIN product code Amazon uses, and then use our code, which is:
[amazon B00000ASIN]Your linked text[/amazon]

Where "B00000ASIN" is the ASIN for the product in question. For instance, for the new "What's Up, Tiger Lily?" it's B001URA5VG.

    What is "Summer Comedy Movie Cash?" And does anybody care about THAT?



A google search finds someone on the amazon page for Monty Python's The Meaning of Life saying:


    The Summer Movie Comedy Cash is a shockingly bad promotion - earn money off vouchers to see 1 of 3 crap movies in the theatre! whoopee.


Seeing that all the movies are Universal Studios movies, we might look at Universal's current and upcoming releases and gather that the 3 movies are among "Land of the Lost", "Brüno", "Funny People", and "The Boat That Rocked".

I've heard 24 is a VERY good series and didn't get to watch it from the beginning. So, I'll grab it on the DVD's if want to watch was cool, I figure it will affect Raw for the first few weeks then back off. Plus it depends on if it's a new episode.
