Wow, December already and the DVDs keep piling up. Who has time to watch all this stuff? This is sure a contrast to the early days of DVD when good discs were few and far between. So let's see what goodies are on for this week.
24: Season 4
Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Volume 4
Belle of the Yukon (1944)
Cinderella Man The Ron Howard boxing film comes out in single disc or 2 disc versions.
The Dukes of Hazzard (2005) This one comes out in both PG-13 (!) and unrated versions...gee, which one's gonna sell better?
Everybody Loves Raymond: The Complete Fifth Season
The Fantastic Four (2005) As is the trend, basic or deluxe editions are being sold.
Full House: The Complete Second Season Eight years of this craptastic show...here's a choice comment from the IMDB boards: " While the last 1-2 seasons were borderline horrific, in my opinion, it wasn't that bad a show."
Green Acres: The Complete Third Season At the risk of offending fans of this show, not everything old is a "classic."
Imagine: John Lennon - Deluxe Edition
He-Man and She-Ra: A Christmas Special Wow, I was blissfully unaware of this forgotten 80s TV gem...c'mon George, can't you just release the Star Wars Holiday Special now that this one is out????
MacGyver: The Complete Fourth Season
M*A*S*H: Season Nine
Fox in a Box Featuring Pam Grier Yes, the Pam Grier box set has arrived (did you know she did a film in 1971 called Women in Cages?!). This set includes Coffy, Foxy Brown, and Sheba Baby.
The Rockford Files: Season One "...watch the Rockford Files and call to see if Paul can score some weed."
Shoot the Piano Player (1960) Criterion releases the Truffaut classic and DVD Savant has a review here.
Star Wars: Clone Wars Vol. 2
Star Wars Original Trilogy This is the same set as before, but without the 4th bonus DVD...but it's cheaper.
Walt Disney Treasures - Disney Rarities - Celebrated Shorts, 1920s - 1960s I haven't read any reviews of this latest round of Disney tins, but the previous ones have all been very good. And as before, these really do go out of print so if they interest you, it pays to get them soon.
Walt Disney Treasures - Elfego Baca and The Swamp Fox: Legendary Heroes
Walt Disney Treasures - The Adventures of Spin & Marty - The Mickey Mouse Club
The West Wing: The Complete Fifth Season
Where the Sidewalk Ends (1950) Not the children's book! Another installment in the Fox Noir series...and DVD Savant has a good look at it here.
