New DVD Releases for 11 November 2008

It’s a fantastic week:

  • Kung Fu Panda

The clips I saw certainly looked funny. And it did very well at the box office.  Was that because it was the only family friendly movie out at the time?  Or was it really a fun movie?

  • Hellboy II

Missed it in the theaters, as I do the vast majority of movies I’m interested in.  Still, Best Buy is offering this alongside the “Hulk” DVD for $30.  I have a gift card for BB, making that very tempting.

  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars

This is a very exciting release for those of you with ten year old boys in the house.  For me, the clips look like video game cinematics.  I’m not interested anymore.

  • Firefly (Blu Ray)

The series is back out on a silver disc again. This time, it’s done up in Blu Ray, which means high definition, fewer discs, and some new special content in the form of a lunch reunion for some of the cast.

  • Scrubs: The Complete Seventh Season

Can’t go wrong here. . .

Next week: Wall-E.  Look for my review of it in this week’s Pipeline, available at today!

  1. Kung Fu Panda was a lot of fun…more than expected if I must admit. I also enjoyed SW: Clone Wars…although not as much as my kids did. The new stuff is definitely not aimed at my age group and I have no problem with that.

  2. Hellboy II was a fun movie. I’m really looking forward to seeing it again.

  3. The Hulk reminded me of the Hulk comics of the 70s-80s. Other than the inclusion of Liv Tyler, I was very pleased with the movie. I liked the Ang Lee Hulk a lot, but this one was just as good — even better if your idea of Hulk is strictly along the lines of “Hulk Smash!”
