This week’s listings are brought you by me! That’s right, I’m selling DVDs on eBay this week. There’s a decent selection of discs that nobody has been on yet for less than $5. That includes SAMURAI JACK, ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, RUNDOWN, APOLLO 13, and more.
Now onto the DVD releases for this week:
- Barry Manilow: First and Farewell
- Bob Dylan: The 1966 World Tour: The Home Movies
- Paul Mccartney: Space Within Us
Music for all sorts of Baby Boomers.
- Ellen: The Complete Series Megaset (14-disc set)
- Six Feet Under: The Complete Series (25-disc set)
Christmas is coming. And what better way to prank the person in your family who repeatedly gives you stale fruit cakes than by giving him or her 14 discs’ worth of ELLEN?
- Fatal Contact: Bird Flu in America (2006)
Hey, it’s Halloween. Who am I to judge?
- George Burns: The TV Specials Collection (4-disc set)
I imagine there’s a lot of cool stuff in there.
- It’s a Wonderful Life: 60th Anniversary Edition (1946)
This would be my Unnecessary Special Edition of the Week, but I don’t think it’s completely unnecessary. I don’t remember six other previous releases of this timeless classic that I’ve never sat all the way through. So I’ll let it pass.
- The Kids in the Hall: Season Five
If I don’t mention it here, I’ll be castigated in the comments, I know.
- The Making of Miss Saigon
I don’t know why this is suddenly being released, but I figure you Broadway fans might be interested.
- Mission: Impossible III: Collector’s Edition (2-disc set) (2006) (Oct. 30)
It’s TOM CRUISE! He’s SO DREAMY! I do admit that I’d like to see this movie, having missed it in the theaters completely.
- Speed Racer: Vol. 5
This is a text book case of how to stretch out a not-terribly-long run of a TV series into as many boxed sets as possible.
Coming up next week: WORDPLAY: The movie all about crossword puzzles is coming to DVD! So is Pixar’s CARS, the next edition of JAMES BOND movie collections, and the 20th anniversary edition of TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE. Christmas is coming, and the DVD industry is starting to pack the shelves.
