Oh dear! The IMDb changed their favicon!

191 DVD, 23 Blu-ray!

READY? OK

PICK OF THE WEEK
Roller Derby Chronicles (The W at Amazon) Includes two documentaries (Rolling Thunder and Derby) and two additional discs of actual roller derby footage! And I don't mean a bunch of 2007 Goth chicks in fishnets, either! ACTUAL roller derby footage from 1952-1977! More info at Video Service Corp. (videoservicecorp.com)



MOVIES OF THE WEEK

THE BIG ONES

Inglourious Basterds (Single-Disc Edition) (USA/Germany, 2009)
Inglourious Basterds (Two-Disc Special Edition) Adds lots of extra featurettes along with the now requisite, totally bogus "digital copy"
Inglourious Basterds (2-Disc Special Edition) [Blu-ray] ALSO adds BD-Live content

The Hangover (R-Rated Single-Disc Edition) (USA/Germany, 2009)
The Hangover (Unrated Two-Disc Special Edition) Adds unrated (8 minutes longer) version and totally bogus digital copy
The Hangover (Unrated Edition) [Blu-ray]

G-Force (Single Disc Widescreen) (2009) Wow, this is EXCEPTIONALLY cheap. (Still not worth it.)
G-Force (Two Disc DVD + Digital Copy) Adds bloopers, flubs, deleted scenes, "exciting music videos" and...ah, who gives a crap
G-Force (Three-Disc DVD/Blu-ray Combo +Digital Copy) [Blu-ray]

Taking Woodstock (2009)
Taking Woodstock [Blu-ray]

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard (2009) Wow, after all the zillions of ads we saw for its theatrical release, this is practically a stealth DVD release by comparison

Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie (Disney Channel, 2009)

The Other Man (USA/UK, 2008) Liam Neeson, Antonio Banderas, Laura Linney - YOU guess which one IS "The Other Man"
The Other Man [Blu-ray]

C Me Dance (2009) Wow, this is the strangest trailer I've seen in quite a while - I hope I don't give anything away when I note: "Peter Kent as The Devil"

MOVIE FOR KIM OF THE WEEK
Dominick Dunne: After the Party Collector's Edition (Celebrity: Dominick Dunne - Austrlia, 2008) Hmm, this was out in June - I guess this is the "he's dead" version?

Santa Claus Conquers The Martians (Cinema Insomnia Slime Line) (1964) Presented by Mr. Lobo

HOLMES OF THE WEEK
Murder by Decree (UK/Canada, 1979) Christopher Plummer IS Sherlock Holmes, James Mason, Donald Sutherland, John Gielgud, other British people
The Sherlock Holmes Collection The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes and Without a Clue
(see also British TV)

ARCHIVAL DVD-Rs FROM MGM
Not genuine RELEASE releases, but unremastered, burned to DVD-R "on demand" releases not otherwise available - Warner (wbshop.com) was the first major to do this, and they're up to about 200 of 'em (including "...All the Marbles!") but they haven't made it to Amazon yet. ANYWAY. Here now are some from MGM which ARE on Amazon!
Trapeze (1956) Burt Lancaster, Tony Curtis, Gina Lollobrigida
The Group (1966) Candice Bergen, Joan Hackett - directed by Sidney Lumet
Far North (1988) Jessica Lange, Charles Durning, Tess Harper - written and directed by Sam Shepard
Rich in Love (1993) Albert Finney, Jill Clayburgh, Kathryn Erbe, Kyle MacLachlan, Piper Laurie, Ethan Hawke, Suzy Amis, Alfre Woodard - geez, enough names on the videotape box?
A Fish in the Bathtub (1999) Jerry Stiller & Anne Meara

Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead (1991) Rerelease? Surely this has been out on DVD before

Disappearing Classics 2010 I'm not exactly sure what's in this 18 disc set from Buena Vista, but I CAN tell you that this is EASILY the MOST EXPENSIVE ITEM OF THE WEEK

The Mel Brooks Collection [Blu-ray] 9 Blu-rays - Blazing Saddles, Spaceballs, Young Frankenstein, High Anxiety, History of the World Part 1, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Silent Movie, To Be or not To Be, Twelve Chairs

Know Your Mushrooms (Canada, 2008) Well, that's got to be the best TITLE of the week, anyway...
Fallen Idol: The Yuri Gagarin Conspiracy (direct to video, 2009) Was it all a Soviet lie? More info and trailers at Indican (indicanpictures.com)

Weird that they are re-releasing Santa Claus Conquers The Martians, a movie so great that it is the only one that MST3K and its offshoot (Cinematic Titanic) riffed on twice. It is an awesomely bad movie, and I can't imagine watching it without MST riffing on it.

A Dat Phan live DVD? Sign me up...or please don't sign me up.

I loved The Hangover, but I think I will pass on buying it. I might think about getting Robot Chicken, as I haven't watched it since season 2.

The Maxx? Finally?

It's kind of unfortunate that it's just the episodes burned quick and dirty off to a DVD-R, but I suppose that's the only way they were going to get that show released at all.
