New DVD Releases for 26 August 2008

Some very cool releases this week:

  • Nightmare Before Christmas

It’s bigger and better than ever! Tim Burton and Danny Elfman’s masterpiece is now two discs, including a digital edition you can transfer to your computer.

  • The Shield: Complete Sixth Season

The best show on television today.  Come celebrate as we begin the series’ final season starting next week with this set, honoring the previous one.  This is, quite clearly, the pick of the week.

  • Redbelt

It’s a close runner-up for pick of the week. This is the latest David Mamet movie, both script and direction.

  • The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s BeginningThe Little Mermaid - Ariel's Beginning

On the bright side, they got Jody Benson back to do Ariel’s voice.  On the other hand, it’s another Disney direct-to-DVD movie.  Bleh.  Your six year old daughter will eat it up, though.

Three out of four ain’t bad for the week.

    Disc 1 of The Shield should be arriving via Netflix today! I missed that season on TV, so I can’t wait to catch up in time for the final season.

    I only hope the Region 2 folks don’t get screwed out on The Shield again. In the series 5 set they chopped about 20 mins out of the season finale for some bizarre reason. The box set is still a must-buy though, I concur about it being the best show on TV.
