Courtesy of those friendly folk at DVDJournal.com, this week’s release list has been culled to a fairly short, but promising list:
Hellboy (2-disc set) (2004)
There is a 3 or 4 disc set coming out for Christmas that promises to have even more stuff on it, so choose carefully.
Pennies from Heaven (3-disc set) (1978) Pennies from Heaven (1981)
One of these is the Steve martin musical remake that bombed very very badly, becoming an object lesson in Hollywood.
Showgirls: V.I.P. Edition (1995)
This is a very good punchline to a very awful flic with a big cult following. Now you can see the movie with video commentary from actual dancers, and get your own shot glass and tassels to go with it.
Sledge Hammer!: Season One (4-disc set)
This is, without a doubt, the release of the week. Let’s all journey back to the mid-1980s and the lowest-rated sit-com in television history (at that point) to be renewed, despite a season-ending cliffhanger that seemed to doom a second season.
V: The Complete Series (3-disc set) (1984)
I throw this in here because I know that someone else will mention it in the comments thread if I don’t. Never got into the series or the movies, but now you can. ;-)
Next week: THE BLACK HOLE is released again (and hopefully this time all the speakers in the surround sound will work the first time out), KNIGHT RIDER, the PICARD set for ST:TNG, and DARBY O’GILL AND THE LITTLE PEOPLE. Maybe the following week will be better… (It is. ALF comes out that week. =)
