New DVD Releases for 27 January 2009

  • The All-New Super Friends Hour: Season 1, Volume 2

These split season volume releases are getting ridiculous. I have vague recollections of watching this show for a week when I was a kid and never again.  Not sure what happened there.  But lots of people idolize it, so here you go!

  • Hulk Vs.

Clearly, this is Marvel trying to outshine DC at the Best Buy box office.  Right? (I kid. See, that’s a reference to the Obama cover pushing the second death of Batman for the year off the front pages and — nevermind.  If you have to explain the joke. . .)

  • M.A.N.T.I.S.: The Complete Series

So, what, VR.5 has to be next, right?  I won’t hold my breath.  Darned music releases. . .

  • Lakeview Terrace

Samuel L. Jackson is in it, but does that count in a post-“Snakes on a Plane” world?

  • Pride and Glory

Edward Norton dons a goatee and a Very Serious Face.  Be afraid.

  • Rock N Rolla

Guy Ritchie movie. Stars Gerard Butler. Past that, I know nothing.
