[amazon_link id=”B006Z7Z3R2″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Innkeepers [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B006Z7Z3R2″ target=”_blank” ]The Innkeepers[/amazon_link] –  The Yankee Pedlar Inn is closing after more than a 100 years in business.

[amazon_link id=”B0071LEJTO” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: The Sacred Star of Milos Movie (Blu-ray/DVD Combo)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0071LEJTO” target=”_blank” ]Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: The Sacred Star of Milos Movie[/amazon_link] – I am a huge fan of Fullmetal Alchemist, both of the original series and of Brotherhood. So I was really looking forward to seeing this movie in theaters. I really did want this movie to be good, I really did. But the animation style is odd from the rest of the series and isn’t even canon with itself. Now I will say there is nothing wrong with the dub or anything of this movie. Funimation continues to put out great releases, but the story just didn’t make sense. However, it is fun because of all the random cameos from fan favorite characters. Stars Vic Mignogna, Maxey Whitehead, Alexis Tipton and many more. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0071LEPDE” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: Complete Collection One [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0071LEPDE” target=”_blank” ]Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: Complete Collection One[/amazon_link] – While I do like FMA and Funimation, this new edition of the series is really strangely named. It’s part one of a complete collection. How can it be complete if it’s only part? That was well thought out. But the series itself is amazing so it’s still highly suggested. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007549XLG” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Marvel Anime: X-Men - Complete Series[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007549XLG” target=”_blank” ]Marvel Anime: X-Men Complete Series[/amazon_link] – An anime series based off the X-Men that aired on G4tv a while ago (so most people never saw it). The X-Men travel to Japan to track down a missing young mutant. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007549WKI” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Marvel Anime: Iron man - Complete Series[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007549WKI” target=”_blank” ]Marvel Anime: Iron Man Complete Series[/amazon_link] – Another anime Marvel series, that probably no one saw because it was on G4tv. Tony Stark travels to Japan to build a new arc reactor, and the Japanese Government and others are against him. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0074JOCV8″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Titanic (Blu-ray/ DVD Combo)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0074JOCV8″ target=”_blank” ]Titanic[/amazon_link] – A new version of the movie that’s been done many times, this one is a British production that was then broadcast on ABC as a miniseries in time for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking. Stars Toby Jones, Linus Roache, Geraldine Somerville, Maria Doyle Kennedy. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007X15U9A” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Paul F. Tompkins: Laboring Under Delusions[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007OAAJZK” target=”_blank” ]Laboring Under Delusions[/amazon_link] – Paul F. Tompkins is quickly becoming one of my favorite comedians. He regularly is on The Thrilling Adventure Hour as Frank Doyle in Beyond Belief. He has his own podcast, and is regular on others and is a master of social media. Laboring Under Delusions is his newest Comedy Central stand up special. It’s definitely worth watching. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007197I4Y” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Patton Oswalt: Finest Hour[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007197I4Y” target=”_blank” ]Patton Oswalt: Finest Hour[/amazon_link] – Another great comedy special, this time with Patton Oswalt. Patton has done a lot of voice-over work, guest starred on numerous TV shows, and even shows his nerdy side with Five Second Films and even The Thrilling Adventure Hour. This also aired on Comedy Central. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B006UTDI0Y” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Let the Bullets Fly [Blu-ray/DVD Combo][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B006UTDI0Y” target=”_blank” ]Let the Bullets Fly[/amazon_link] – Chow Yun-Fat stars in a movie set in the 1920s. He poses as a governor while a local mobster fights him for the territory. The movie is now the highest-grossing domestic movie (in China) of all time. Stars Chow Yun-Fat, Xiaogang Feng, and  Wen Jiang. Not Rated.

 

 

[amazon_link id=”B006XDU81Y” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Golgo 13 Collection 3[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B006XDU81Y” target=”_blank” ]Golgo 13 Collection 3[/amazon_link] – The next installment of the anime series.

 

[amazon_link id=”B006UKX6IC” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Wild Thornberrys: Season Two, Part 2[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B006UKX6IC” target=”_blank” ]The Wild Thornberrys: Season Two, Part 2[/amazon_link] – I may be required to include this mainly because of the internet meme, Nigel Face swap. If you look it up, you must be prepared for being horrified. Tim Curry stars as Nigel. Not Rated.
