New releases, 27 Dec 2005

The folks at DVDJournal.com have a full release list. I have some highlights.

American Pie: Band Camp (unrated) (widescreen) (2005) American Pie: Band Camp (R-rated) (widescreen) (2005)

I’ve lost all track of these movies. The last one came out this year? Hunh.

Dark Water (2005)

Wasn’t there a “Dark Water” animated mini-series about a decade ago? This ain’t it. This is that remake of the Japanese horror flic that came and went earlier this year.

Nowhere Man: The Complete Series

I talked about this a little bit last week. It’s a paranoid conspiracy thriller show. Lots of fun, starring Bruce Greenwood. Its creator had an internet presence back when the show was first on, making him one of the first TV producers to recognize such a thing could be good. And the final episode did wrap up the series.

Think THE PRISONER, but set in the real world without umbrella-toting midgets.

The Shield: Season Four (4-disc set)

The series returns to the air in just a couple of weeks and I can’t wait. It’s the best show on television when it’s on.

At the same time, 24 will be returning, and I’ll be bouncing back and forth between the two shows as being the Best Show On Television. I seem to have given up on ALIAS this year, though, so there’s less competition now.

Toy Story 2: Special Edition (1999)

I already own a version of this movie that makes me happy.

The Twilight Zone: Season Five

When I’m rich and retired, I’ll be buying all of these to enjoy.

Next week promises not a whole heck of a lot. Maybe these will interest you: Alien Nation (4-disc set), Dumb & Dumber: Unrated Edition, Wedding Crashers: Uncorked Edition (unrated). Nothing for me, though.

This week’s podcast won’t be up until tomorrow night at the earliest.

    The SHIELD has been in stores for weeks around here in Utah, which is odd, but more Vic Mackey is a good thing.

    Augie, when your rich and retired, they won’t be on DVD. You’ll have to pay Microsoft $5 a pop every you want to stream an episode, and you won’t be able to save the video file locally.

    That would be the old animated series “Pirates of Darkwater”

    Yowza, I was barely able to find a copy of The Shield and forget about Nowhere Man, couldn’t find a copy to save my life. Guess that’s good that it’s getting bought, but man, leave me a copy, sheesh.
