New DVD Releases for 21 Oct 2008

It’s a pretty cool week. I can’t complain:

  • The Incredible Hulk

Ed Norton takes over the green role this time around, fighting the Abomination (from what I’ve read) and doing a better job than the noble failure that was the Ang Lee/Eric Bana version a few years back.  I enjoyed that movie, though I thought it tried a little too hard in places to be an artsy movie.  The Hulk is not high art, folks.

In any case, I hope to see this one someday. The box pictured above is for the three disc release, which contains all sorts of bonus scenes and behind-the-scenes stuff.

  • James Bond, Blu-Ray

Six of the original Bond movies are out on Blu-ray this week.  In case you haven’t tired of buying these movies from their three previous DVD releases, here’s your fourth chance!  (I’m guessing at three, but I don’t think I’m far off.)

The boxes pictured above will give you all six Blu-ray movies for $112 at Amazon.

  • Looney Tunes: Golden Collection, Volume 6

This is the last release in this format, but there are some choice shorts in here.  We’re all waiting to see what they’re planning on for next year now. . .

  1. The new Hulk “requel” – was surprisingly not bad ( especially compared to the very dissapointing Ang Lee Hulk movie just a few years back ). The strength of this film was definitely Ed Norton’s potrayal of Bruce Banner. Apparently Mr.Norton wasn’t super happy with the edit of the film that Marvel made – which was very quick action-packed cuts, as opposed to a more cerebral and darker cut that he wanted. The action-packed cut really worked, but it would have been interesting to see Norton’s proposed cut – hopefully they release that one day ( but doubtful ). If nothing else, would have been nice to have seen an expanded Brazil sequence.

  2. I really had no interest in seeing The Hulk but have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Definitely worth adding to your Netflix queue.

  3. If you loved the old tv show–you’ll love the new Hulk film. Still not sure I need a 3 disc version of it, even with the not so secret cameo of one certain avenger.

  4. In any case, I hope to see this one someday.

    Spoken like a true parent. Welcome to the club of delayed pop-culture gratification, Augie.
