New Releases for June 05, 2012

DVD/Blu-Ray

Somehow there is a butt-load of things this week, some of them very good.

[amazon_link id=”B007MDB71O” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]John Carter (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007MDB71O” target=”_blank” ]John Carter[/amazon_link] – A very underrated movie is in my opinion the highlight of the week. Based on the books by Edgar Rice Burroughs and inspiring the Science Fiction that we know today, this movie just suffered from terrible marketing. I really do suggest that you watch and buy it. You can read my review of it again here. Stars Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Ciarán Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy, and Willem Dafoe. Rated PG-13.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007R6D74G” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (Blu-ray/DVD Combo + UltraViolet Digital Copy)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007R6D74G” target=”_blank” ]Journey 2: The Mysterious Island[/amazon_link] – The Sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth with only one of the original cast members, Josh Hutcherson. However would probably be a fairly decent family movie or guilty pleasure movie like the first one was. Stars Josh Hutcherson, Dwayne Johnson, Michael Caine, Vanessa Hudgens, and Luis Guzmán. Rated PG.

 

[amazon_link id=”B005LAIGZU” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Act of Valor [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B005LAIGZU” target=”_blank” ]Act of Valor[/amazon_link] – This is the movie that had real Navy Seals as they followed them around. Stars Roselyn Sánchez, Nestor Serrano, and Emilio Rivera. Rated R.

 

[amazon_link id=”B005LAIGSC” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Safe House (Two-Disc Combo Pack: Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy + UltraViolet)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B005LAIGSC” target=”_blank” ]Safe House[/amazon_link] – The action movie with Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds that kind of came in quietly in February of this year. Denzel is the bad guy this time and in a unsecure safe-house. However, it did decently at the box office, so it might worth taking a look. Stars Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. Rated R.

 

[amazon_link id=”B005FITIF0″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Machine Gun Preacher [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B005FITIF0″ target=”_blank” ]Machine Gun Preacher[/amazon_link] – Gerard Butler plays a drug dealer who undergoes a spirtual transformation and goes to East Africa to preach and help the children there. Gerard Butler and Michelle Monaghan. Rated R.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007NE02MM” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Bad Ass [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007NE02MM” target=”_blank” ]Bad Ass[/amazon_link] – I include this one movie this week mainly because it’s Danny Trejo and in this badly photoshopped cover he’s wearing a Fanny Pack. Stars Danny Trejo, Charles S. Dutton, Ron Perlman, Joyful Drake, and Patrick Fabian. Rated R.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007MY42TC” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Hatfields & Mccoys: Bad Blood[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007MY42TC” target=”_blank” ]Hatfields & Mccoys: Bad Blood[/amazon_link] – Christian Slater in the cheap knock off version coming out on DVD before the good “History Channel” one. Stars Jeff Fahey, Christian Slater, Tim Abell, Perry King, and Jerry Lacy. Rated PG-13.

 

Now there is a huge amount of TV series out so I’m not going to cover each one. The links all still work but I am lazy.

[amazon_link id=”B007PKSOJC” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]In Plain Sight: Season Four[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007PKSOJC” target=”_blank” ]In Plain Sight: Season Four[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B003L77GMO” target=”_blank” ]Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Complete Eighth Season[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B004YM6IZ6″ target=”_blank” ]Burn Notice: The Complete Fifth Season[/amazon_link]

 

[amazon_link id=”B004LROMX4″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Falling Skies: The Complete First Season [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B004LROMX4″ target=”_blank” ]Falling Skies: The Complete First Season[/amazon_link]

 

[amazon_link id=”B007I8KXQ8″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007I8KXQ8″ target=”_blank” ]The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series[/amazon_link] – The entire series on Blu-Ray. But be warned it does cost a pretty penny.

 

Then today we also have lots of different cartoons and anime.

[amazon_link id=”B00782O82Y” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Thundercats: Season 1 - Book 2[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B00782O82Y” target=”_blank” ]Thundercats: Season 1 – Book 2[/amazon_link] – Please, please, please buy this series. Cartoon Network is most likely going to cancel this great remake of the original series and it should really continue. I really urge you to watch it on TV as well. The voice acting, story, and animation style is great.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007GMKWYE” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]G.I. Joe Renegades: Season One, Vol. 1[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007GMKWYE” target=”_blank” ]G.I. Joe Renegades: Season One[/amazon_link] – The first disc of I believe the now cancelled G.I. Joe series that I’ve heard is pretty good. I would say it’s a shame they just canceled it when the movie is just coming out but that got delayed for almost another year. Way to go Hasbro.

 

 

[amazon_link id=”B0080GT9TE” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]JACKIE CHAN ADVENTURES - SEASON 2 (4 Discs)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0080GT9TE” target=”_blank” ]JACKIE CHAN ADVENTURES – SEASON 2[/amazon_link] – Guys I was really excited about this for a second as I really liked this series, but then it got weird. This are on demand DVD-R’s (which isn’t so bad as they are still official and better than nothing) but this is the only season available like this. No Season 1 (which if you’re talking the original discs they might be out of print or hard to find) and now following seasons. So there is just this. I don’t think that this was well thought out.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0080GTA8O” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]JUMANJI - THE ANIMATED SERIES - SEASON 1 (2 Discs)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0080GTA8O” target=”_blank” ]JUMANJI – THE ANIMATED SERIES – SEASON 1[/amazon_link] – Another piece of childhood, this series is also only available as print on demand DVDs.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007GMKX6G” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]CatDog: Season Two, Part One[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007GMKX6G” target=”_blank” ]CatDog: Season Two, Part One[/amazon_link] – Nickelodeon continues to finally release some of their classic series, but this should have been done much earlier.But at least they seem to be releasing this series rather fast.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007K7IBDO” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Kurenai Complete Collection[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007K7IBDO” target=”_blank” ]Kurenai Complete Collection[/amazon_link] – A series about a guy who has to guard a young girl I guess. Sadly Sentai released it sub only.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007NU53JI” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Hero Tales: Complete Box Set[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007NU53JI” target=”_blank” ]Hero Tales: Complete Box Set[/amazon_link] – A series that I’ve been meaning to watch, it’s created by the same person that created Fullmetal Alchemist and is done by Funimation as well.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007CZ3FKS” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Boogiepop Phantom Complete TV Series[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007CZ3FKS” target=”_blank” ]Boogiepop Phantom Complete TV Series[/amazon_link] – A reissue of the classic anime series, about Boogiepop who is like the embodiment of death.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007NU53C0″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Dragon Ball Z Kai: Part Eight [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007NU53C0″ target=”_blank” ]Dragon Ball Z Kai: Part Eight[/amazon_link] – Part Eight of the long running but shorter version of the Dragonball Z franchise.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007TAX7V8″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Vol. 5 [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007TAX7V8″ target=”_blank” ]Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Vol. 5[/amazon_link] – Part of the series I swear brought about Bandai’s downfall. This nearly $100 for 53 minutes of Blu-Ray. It does come with both subs and dubs luckily but wow this is overpriced. If it comes down in price, I would recommend it as the dub cast looks great. But this is when companies from Japan try to enforce the pricing that they had in Japan when it doesn’t really work in the United States.

 

Video Games

[amazon_link id=”B007NUQICE” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Sims 3: Katy Perry Sweet Treats[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007NUQICE” target=”_blank” ]The Sims 3: Katy Perry Sweet Treats[/amazon_link] – Normally I probably wouldn’t talk about this as its an expansion to a game that’s been out for a while, but seriously WHY IS THERE A KATY PERRY SIMS EXPANSION!?! Rated T for Teen if really wanted to buy this. And if you do, I question your immortal soul.

 

[amazon_link id=”B006Y76JNU” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Madagascar 3: The Video Game[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B006Y76JNU” target=”_blank” ]Madagascar 3: The Video Game [/amazon_link] – Probably a crappy game from the crappy movie. If the best thing you have about the movie is a guy who dissed Voice Acting by saying its super easy and yelling “Afro Circus” all the time, then I worry about the movie and the game.

 

[amazon_link id=”B004LWEK7C” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Inversion[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B004LWEK7C” target=”_blank” ]Inversion [/amazon_link] – A came that looks cool, but who knows what it’s actually about. But you do apparently get to master gravity.
