DVD/Blu-Ray

[amazon_link id=”B0084IG7KC” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Hunger Games [2-Disc Blu-ray + Ultra-Violet Digital Copy][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0084IG7KC” target=”_blank” ]The Hunger Games[/amazon_link] – Notice to everyone. This one because they wanted to be super cool or something doesn’t come out on Tuesday like everything else. It comes out on Friday. Do not go to the store on Tuesday expecting to pick this up. You can read my review of the film here. The series is now pulling a Twilight (and Harry Potter I suppose) and making this the first of FOUR movies from a three book series. Stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland, and Stanley Tucci. Rated PG-13.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0085A9HXS” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Raid: Redemption [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0085A9HXS” target=”_blank” ]The Raid: Redemption[/amazon_link] – Some people are claiming this is the best action movie ever. It’s a martial arts movie as well as just regular action movie. A rookie special forces member is instructed to get a crime lord out of an apartment complex. Then it goes bad from there as you can guess. Rated R.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0083H6AJC” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Kill List [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0083H6AJC” target=”_blank” ]Kill List[/amazon_link] – Apparently this was well received in England but reviews are mixed here in the United States. It’s a horror movie about and ex-soldier now turned contract killer that has a contract that takes a turn for the weird. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0084NZEL0″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Assassin's Bullet SD//BD Combo[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0084NZEVA” target=”_blank” ]Assassin’s Bullet[/amazon_link] – A former FBI agent is brought in after a vigilante starts killing wanted terrorists. Looks like its one of those films with a good cast but crap plot. Stars Donald Sutherland, Christian Slater,  and Timothy Spall. Rated R.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007STBUIW” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Jaws [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy + UltraViolet] (Universal's 100th Anniversary)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007STBUIW” target=”_blank” ]Jaws: Universal 100th Anniversary Edition[/amazon_link] – If you don’t own Jaws already, this is probably the set to get. The whole movie has been remastered from the original film with lots of other special features. If you like Jaws, then this one is seriously cool. Stars Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss, Lorraine Gary, and Murray Hamilton. Rated PG.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00834JQZ0″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Bigfoot [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B00834JQZ0″ target=”_blank” ]Bigfoot[/amazon_link] – Remember that ridiculous Bigfoot movie with Danny Bonaduce and Barry Williams as two guys going after a giant big foot and then one of the guys from K.I.S.S. gets kicked away like a soccerball? Yeah this is that movie if you for some reason want to own it. Stars Barry Williams and Danny Bonaduce. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0053O8A8M” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Community: The Complete Third Season[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0053O8A8M” target=”_blank” ]Community: The Complete Third Season[/amazon_link] – The last season of the critically acclaimed series on NBC with their original show runner before he was fired. There is going to be a limited season four so it’s not over yet. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B005FISBV2″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Dexter: The Sixth Season [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B005FISBV2″ target=”_blank” ]Dexter: The Sixth Season[/amazon_link] – The Sixth and second to last season. It’s a popular Showtime series about serial killer who kills serial killers. Not Rated (But Showtime so VERY mature audiences only).

 

[amazon_link id=”B0053O8A5U” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Glee: The Complete Third Season [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0053O8A5U” target=”_blank” ]Glee: The Complete Third Season[/amazon_link] – The Third season of the singing based series that has several of the cast members graduating. However, I’m not sure if they are leaving the show permanently or not. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B008H6GHEW” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Happy Endings: Seasons 1 & 2[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B008H6GHEW” target=”_blank” ]Happy Endings: Seasons 1 & 2[/amazon_link] – A special edition release of the TV series on ABC that has the first two seasons together. I’m assuming it’s prep for the third season starting soon. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0087AOY84″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Power Rangers Super Samurai: Super Powered Black Box (Vol.1) DVD[/amazon_link][amazon_link id=”B0087AOYAM” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Power Rangers Super Samurai: Super Showdown (Vol. 2) DVD[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0087AOY84″ target=”_blank” ]Power Rangers Super Samurai: Vol 1[/amazon_link] & [amazon_link id=”B0087AOYAM” target=”_blank” ]Vol 2[/amazon_link] – The SECOND season of the new Power Rangers TV series airing on Nickelodeon. These are the kind of releases that are meant to milk customers as they only have four episodes each but come out the same time. There may be a complete series release later so I’m unsure if this is a good buy or not. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0087AOYCU” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Season 10: The Complete Final Season DVD[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0087AOYCU” target=”_blank” ]Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Season 10: The Complete Final Season[/amazon_link] – As it says the final season, and I know some people are just thinking FINALLY to have it finally all released. And yes it’s taken much too long. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0080730BG” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Angry Beavers: Season Three, Part 2[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0080730BG” target=”_blank” ]The Angry Beavers: Season 3, Part Two[/amazon_link] – Another Nickelodeon release that I think is coming years later then it should have been. Though this is a release that I’m sure Krista is interested in. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0083QJW9I” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]One Piece: Collection Seven[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0083QJW9I” target=”_blank” ]One Piece: Collection Seven[/amazon_link] – Another Funimation release for One Piece. We just had one too. I am officially confused on how this show is being released. But still dubbed well and fun. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0080K2E92″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror (Blu-ray/DVD Combo)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0080K2E92″ target=”_blank” ]Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror[/amazon_link] – Haruka is trying to find her mirror that was given to her from her mother, then ends up in mystical world. Note this is not a traditional anime because this is computer animated. I also know that one of my favorite Voice Actors, Kyle Hebert is in this movie. Stars Christina Marie Cabanos, Cassandra Lee, Patrick Seitz, Julie Maddalena, Julie ann Taylor. Rated G.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0083QJV4E” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]This Boy Can Fight Aliens [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0083QJV4E” target=”_blank” ]This Boy Can Fight Aliens[/amazon_link] – Another rare Section 23 anime release that actually has a dub. A boy is discovered that can fight off an alien invasion. But he has amnesia. NOTE: this is Yaoi (ish?) and only has a run time of 28 minutes. So its quite expensive for that consideration. Not Rated.
