New Releases for December 11, 2012

DVD/Blu-Ray

Movies

Ted

Ted – Basically the story goes that a boy wishes to have his teddy bear be alive, it comes true, and they both grow up. And apparently because its Boston they are really immature? I’m sorry to Boston. But if you are a Family Guy fan or like Seth MacFarlane you’ll probably enjoy this movie since much of the cast is in this movie. This was the surprise hit of the summer. Stars Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Seth MacFarlane, Giovanni Ribisi, Jessica Stroup, and Patrick Warburton. Directed by Seth MacFarlane as well. Rated R.

The Bourne Legacy

The Bourne Legacy – A sequel/spin-off of the previous Bourne movies. This one however stars Jeremy Renner and interestingly enough the director of this one is the screen writer for the last three. This time, he’s part of another program that is trying to replicate the results of Jason Bourne, and as you can guess things go wrong. Check out my review of it. Stars Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Joan Allen, and Albert Finney. Rated PG-13.

Ice Age: Continental Drift

Ice Age: Continental Drift – The fourth movie in the franchise and three years from the last one. This time the squirrel Scrat is the one that breaks apart all the continents all at the same time, the main characters have a teenage daughter who falls in love and they have to fight monkey pirates. Sigh. Stars Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Queen Latifah, Seann William Scott, Josh Peck, Keke Palmer, Chris Wedge, Peter Dinklage, Jennifer Lopez, Drake, and Nicki Minaj. Rated PG.

Age of the Hobbits

Clash of the Empires, aka: Age of the Hobbits, aka: Lord of the Elves – This was original called Age of the Hobbits but was renamed to Clash of the Empires, I assume for legal reasons. This I believe is Hobbit in name only. This was made by the same guys who make their knock off of every action movie, and make most of the terrible Syfy movies. (Still not sure how they aren’t sued all the time) This one has a claim to fame that it stars Christopher Judge who is most well known from Stargate SG-1

Mansome

Mansome – Morgan Spurlock, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Ben Silverman join in a odd documentary about defining men’s masculinity and how things have changed around the world. Not Rated.

TV

Mankind: The Story of All of Us

Mankind: The Story of All of Us – This is a documentary that is supposed to cover most of the history of mankind. Not Rated.

Girls: Season 1

Girls: Season 1 – A fairly popular comedy series from HBO. Not Rated.

Futurama: Volume 7

Futurama: Volume 7 – This is the seventh volume, NOT the seventh season. I’m not sure where the break off is. Not Rated.

Law & Order: Criminal Intent: Year Nine

Law & Order: Criminal Intent: Year Nine – One of the backlog of the Criminal Intent seasons. This time with Jeff Goldblum as one of the main characters. However, something about his face looks weird on this cover. Not Rated.

Cartoons/Anime

Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu - Rise of Green

Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu- Rise of the Green Ninja – The first 7 episodes of season 2. This is a much better than the previous releases on it. It is a fun series though and worth a look. Not Rated.

Bleach: Uncut Set 15

Bleach: Uncut Set 15 – The next release of the very popular Bleach series. Ichigo against different foes as always. Not Rated.

Level E: Complete Series

Level E: Complete Series – This is a new series from Funimation starring Vic Mignogna and Micah Solusod. (This is one that Micah mentioned when we had him on at Banzai.) The first two episodes have been released on Funimation’s website and I will tell you that from those that this show is very funny and definitely worth a look. Not Rated.

Is This A Zombie? Season One

Is This A Zombie? Season One – Not sure about this is about but it is another Funimation title. A boy that was killed by a serial killer and was resurrected as a zombie to do housework, along with visits by magical girls and others. Not Rated.

Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee Collection 1

Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee Collection 1 – Sentai Filmworks continues to disappoint me. This series is based on the manga of the almost same name that’s been published by Viz. So this could have been a really good bigger series for them. But instead they decided to release it as sub only, which will probably doom it to obscurity. Not Rated.

Video Games

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead – This is TellTale Games version of the game that was done in parts. (The recently did the very good Back to the Future game). I’ve heard some pretty good things about this so far. This is available on PS3, Xbox 360, Mac and PC. Rated M for Mature.
