[amazon_link id=”B00HF00RIS” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Last Days on Mars [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

The Last Days on Mars –  This movie wants to be a Sci-Fi movie but is closer to horror, as on the last day before a return from Mars, a zombie like outbreak overtakes the crew. All reports are that this is not very good and better done when Doctor Who did it.

TV

[amazon_link id=”B00HCK7ZMM” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor (Blu-ray)[/amazon_link]

Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor – The last special with Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor and takes place right after the 50th Anniversary Special. This does feature his reincarnation as the Twelfth Doctor with Peter Capaldi. But you’ll probably be better served for waiting for this to be part of the season set. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00HHYF55C” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Mr. & Mrs. Murder: Series 1[/amazon_link]

Mr. & Mrs. Murder: Series 1 – Surprisingly, an Australian series is being released over here. A married couple that works in industrial cleaning and specializes in cleaning crime scenes. Through their experience they start to become amateur  sleuths. Not Rated.

[amazon_link id=”B00HZMZ2HM” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Magical Legend of the Leprechauns[/amazon_link]

Magical Legend of the Leprechauns – This is a reprint of a fun NBC/Hallmark made-for-TV movie about an American that must help save the Leprechauns that live near him. It’s a fun movie, and I truly wish that Hallmark would go back to making films tied to different mythologies and Fairy Tales. They really are some of my favorite TV movies. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00HF98SYO” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Ancient Aliens: Season 5 Vol 2 [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

Ancient Aliens: Season 5 Vol 2 – The second part of the fifth season of the History Channel TV series. I’ll still use this graphic. Not Rated.

[amazon_link id=”B00GI0SX7S” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Teen Titans Go: Mission to Misbehave Season 1 Pt 1[/amazon_link]

Teen Titans Go: Mission to Misbehave Season 1 Pt 1 – Not sure if this is right, but it is two discs of episodes  (though I’m unsure how may episodes are contained on this as there is no run times) and according to Amazon, it says that the aspect ratio is in 4:3. This would be really weird as it aired in regular 16:9 and they would have had to cut it just for this DVD. It would be a horrible thing to do just for the DVD release. This is Teen Titans, with all of the same voice actors but focuses entirely on humor. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00GSTHC5I” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Slugterra: Heroes of the Underground[/amazon_link]

Slugterra: Heroes of the Underground – The next five episodes of the TV series Slugterra. About a secret underground society that uses different types of slugs like bullets. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00GUALJUO” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Venture Bros: Complete Season Five [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

Venture Bros: Complete Season Five – The fifth season of the Venture Brothers, though it’s been out for much longer than just the five years because they have taken so long between seasons. Also one of the few good Adult Swim produced TV shows. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00HFBZB9M” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]One Piece: Season Five, Voyage Six[/amazon_link]

One Piece: Season Five, Voyage Six – Still have not been able to figure out how this is being releases thanks to multiple types of sets being released at the same time, but this is the great Funimation dub of One Piece with episodes 325 through 336. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00FJX967G” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Casshan [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

Casshan – Okay, this one is a little complicated. This is a subtitle only release from Sentai Filmworks but this time I’ll give them a pass as Casshan was originally released in Japan in 1973. However, it gets a little complicated because this the original series of Casshan otherwise known as Casshern. This gets complicated because Funimation licensed, dubbed, and broadcast the reboot anime of Casshern Sins on Adult Swim a couple of years ago. So both companies have different versions of the same title and are rivals. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00HF95PKO” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Space Adventure Cobra: The Original TV Series, Part 1[/amazon_link]

Space Adventure Cobra: The Original TV Series, Part 1 – This is another complicated release as there are several different versions of this title. This is the original anime that aired in 1982. I believe it’s been licensed a couple of times but I’m not sure. This time it’s licensed by Nozomi Entertainment (Right Stuf) and is subtitled only. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00FJX98BK” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Maria Holic [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

Maria Holic – Another weird anime release and Sentai Filmworks maybe not being the wisest (though I think this could be rectified easily). This is the DUBBED version of the series where the main character Kanako attends an all girls school, which is just the way she wants it as she’s into girls. So much that she is allergic to men. Things were going great until Kanako finds out that her roommate is actually a guy in drag. The reason this release is weird is that Sentai originally released this in 2010 as a subtitle only release with no price difference and then now decides to dub it. I am hoping that it’s because they are trying to use their licenses better now that they seem to be a healthier company, but for now I will just suggest wait and see if Sentai decides to release something dubbed. Not Rated.
