New Releases for 18 Nov 2003

It’s a big week this week for me. As always, the full list can be found over at

Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Vol. 1

You can hear the screams of delight from Adult Swim viewers everywhere. I’m not one of them, but I hear their screams, anyway.

The King of Queens: Season One (3-disc set)

Thus finally proving that they’ll put anything out on DVD these days.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers: Special Extended DVD Edition (4-disc set)

This is the big release of the week, no doubt. I skipped the first DVD of the movie to wait for this one, and I’m glad my patience will be rewarded.

Once Upon a Time in the West (2-disc set) (1968)

The classic western that everyone raves over. I’ve never seen it. I intend to fix that, perhaps this weekend.

They Might Be Giants: Gigantic: A Tale of Two Johns (2002)

Aside from LORD OF THE RINGS, this is the big release of the week for me. Nightline showed an excerpt from it once that was quite promising. DVDJournal even named it their disc of the week, with a must-read review.

Tomb Raider 2: The Cradle of Life (2003)

This is a rental. I’m not expecting much, but I am curious.

Winged Migration: Special Edition (2003)

I’ve heard so many good things about this that I might just rent it also someday.

Next week: X2 and some other stuff.

    Being an fan of animation, Augie, have you purchased Finding Nemo? Anyone out there experiencing artifacts and compression issues?

    I put NEMO on my Chrismas list. I liked the movie, but I don’t see myself rushing to watch it again right now. I’d be curious to hear if anyone else has those artifacting problems.

    Right now, I want to track down the FRANK AND OLLIE documentary that mentioned on its front page this morning. That sounds exciting.

    Checked out the first half of TTT:EE last night. If the second half can match it, then all my pacing problems with the theatrical version will truly be cleared up. There’s was just too much of a fill-in-the-blank feeling to what I saw in the theater and this new version really opens it up! Anyone else find the theatrical version lacking?
