DVD Day: November 3rd, 2009


?? G.I. Joe: Resolute
I’m sorry, did you think Rise of Cobra was going to be #1 today? Again, oh no no no no no. G.I. Joe: Resolute wasn’t perfect, but it was far more entertaining than the movie, while being more sensible and providing fangasms while never getting inaccessible. The Joes were more badass. Cobra was far more terrifying. The action was better. If you are even slightly a good person, you will buy Resolute for $14 and skip Rise of Cobra altogether.

? G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra Two-Disc Edition
Meanwhile, the $200 million “epic” live-action movie had four Joes trying to stop a terrorist attack in Paris by tooling around in a white Enterprise rent-a van. One of them wore a sweater. I am not lying.

? G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Season 1.2
And here’s the cartoon, but don’t forget Shout Factory’s big complete collection is still coming out next week.

? Star Wars The Clone Wars: Complete Season One
Still haven’t seen it. Still feel bad about it. Then I see the faux-wooden-puppet-look of the characters, and I don’t feel that bad any more.

? Walt Disney Treasures: Zorro
Both the first and second seasons are out today. I recall this being awesome… when I was six. Couldn’t tell you how it holds up.

? Doctor Who: The Black Guardian Trilogy
Three whole episodes (126-128) for $39? What another amazing deal for Who fans! Admittedly, there are plenty of extras, though.

? Terminator Salvation: The Machinima Series
What the fuck is this? Where did it come from? How terrible is it? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

? Fraggle Rock: Complete Series Collection
I think I’ve said this before, but the Fraggles scared the shit out of me. I did not like the idea of secret creatures living somewhere inside my house.You can keep your damn Fraggles.

? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Complete Season 7th Set

These episodes have apparently been released separately, but here they are in one convenient box.
