Hello, folks! This week we have another 171 new DVDs and 25 new Blu-rays to talk about. As always, hover over a title to see its cover and price - if you're fortunate enough to be reading this BEFORE 3/15, you're seeing the preorder price, which is usually the cheapest price you'll pay for a new DVD - click on a title to buy (and we do get a small referral from Amazon if you do...thanks!) Additional info is provided for many titles, represented by the IMDb icon (link to IMDb listing), tv.com icon (season episode guide), movie website icon ("official" movie website) and/or distributor's link. There's a few odd trailers mixed in as well. Also, lousy jokes you've read hundreds of times. All titles are out on 3/15 (TUESDAY), unless otherwise noted by a date in parentheses following the end of its listing. Amazon lists titles by the dozen. We note the Top 24 preorders by putting their titles in larger italics. Finally, for several of these sections, the top movers are at the top of the list and we work our way down.

Torchslasher Knackwurst Since: 17.1.02 From: New F'n Jersey Since last post: 275 days Last activity: 29 days # 2 Posted on 13.3.11 0443.04 | Instant Rating: 6.55 I would like to see this Wrestlemania documentary, so hopefully somebody here will buy it and tell me whether to go out of my way to see it. I love the release of two Gamera movies, because the word is that the next MST3K collection will be all Gamera movies. Apparently Sandy Frank wouldn't release the rights to the movies until just recently. Here's to hoping to see Gamera, a creature who is really neat, and filled with turtle meat, we all love you Gam-er-a. Oh, and Anchorman on Blu-Ray...awesome. "Put on your helmets, we'll be reaching speeds of 3!" "It was nice of you to give that dead woman another chance."
