DVD Day: January 27th, 2009


Not much going on today, other than the awesome-looking Hulk Vs., but apparently some foreign country is getting the ’80s/’90s Batman movies on Blu-ray. Don’t order ’em! They’ll be released in the U.S. on March 10th. Also, never buy Batman Forever or Batman & Robin, because they’re horrible. That is all.

? Hulk Vs.
Two cartoons, light on talky bits, heavy on Hulk smashing? Awesome. This is as great an idea as Next Avengers was terrible. Word is the Hulk versus Wolverine section is super violent and bloody–if any of you are buying it today, give us some of the gory details in the comments, please.

? The Invaders Season 2
I’ve never heard of this ’60s sci-fi show until today. I’m sure it’s good, but the fact it’s the day’s #9 seller makes me think it’s kind of a slow release day.

? The All-New Superfriends Hour, Season 1 Volume 2
Wonder Twins, not Wendy and Marvin. FYI.

? M.A.N.T.I.S.: The Complete Series
Sam Raimi’s superhero series from 1994 Fox. So it runs for 20 episodes, and Fox cancels Firefly after 11? I call bullshit.

? The Secret Policeman’s Balls
All five of the famed British charity shows, which include all of Monty Python, Rowan Atkinson, Hugh Laurie, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, and more.

? Gutterballs
Remember this porn title from The Big Lebowski? Well, I just thought you should know someone has made a sleazy slasher flick with the same title, and that it’s not hardcore Jeff Bridges-on-Julianne Moore action. The summary:

A brutally sadistic rape leads to a series of bizarre gory murders
during a midnight disco bowl-a-rama at a popular bowling alley. One by
one, players of two teams meet blood-drenched gruesome deaths at the
hand of a black bowling-gloved masked killer. This alley will run red
with blood by sunrise and the shocking twist that reveals the killer
will shock even the most jaded viewer!

I’m shocked already!
