Upcoming DVD Releases

Thriller: The Complete Series [ September 26 ]
The Woods [ October 3 ]
Abominable [ October 3 ]
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2: The Gruesome Edition [ October 10 ]
Comments: I've always had a certain love/hate relationship with this movie. On one hand, there's some creepy-ass scenes, on the other hand, I'm not too wild about the "humor" factor. I've never really been one for humor in my horror movies. I want one or the other, not some "wacky" hybrid. Nevertheless, I'm definitely looking forward to this release. Rumor has it that the original deleted scenes where Joe Bob Briggs gets murdered, will be included in the Extras. Neat-o!
Legends of Horror Collection: [ October 10 ]
-Doctor X
-The Return of Doctor X
-Mad Love
-The Devil Doll
-Mark of the Vampire
-The Mask of Fu Manchu
Comments: Wowsa! And just in time for Halloween too! Though I already own DVD-Rs of Mad Love and Mark of the Vampire, I am really looking forward to seeing the new digitally-remastered versions. I just hope the discs include their original thetrical movie trailers!

Comments: Oh man, you don't know how long I have been waiting for some of these movies to be released to DVD! I LOVE Harper, it's sequel The Drowning Pool and one of my all-time-favorites, the boxing film Somebody Up There Likes Me. I'm excited!

Superman: The Movie: 4-Disc Special Edition [ November 28 ]
Comments: You don't know how close I came recently to buying the previously-released Superman boxset. I'm glad I waited. And even though I have fond memories of and love the first movie, I can't imagine WTF they are gonna put on FOUR discs.
Superman II: 2-Disc Special Edition [ November 28 ]
Superman III: Deluxe Edition [ November 28 ]
Superman IV: Deluxe Edition [ November 28 ]
Bones: Season 1 [ November 28 ]
Comments: I love this show! I'm not sure which coverart they are going with, but personally, I prefer the first version. Looking forward to getting this boxset! The weird thing is, I never really got into David Boreanaz in his TV series Angel, but I think he's incredibly hot as FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth. Maybe it's the suit.

They are releasing a bunch of Superman DVDs, and I'm having a hard time figuring out which I should be getting. What I want is the Superman II RICHARD DONNER DIRECTOR'S CUT... but I'm not sure if it is included in the Superman II: Deluxe Box Edition, or if I have to buy it separately?? You'd think that there would be a special bundle (like the 4-disc set they've got going on for Superman: The Movie), but information is scarce. Oh well, Donner's original vision IS coming to DVD at long last, and I couldn't be happier than that. Bye bye slapstick idiocy with flying toupees and ice cream cones...

I know what you mean. But, it never fails, whichever one I buy, there will be a super-deluxe-top-secret-chocolatey-fudgey-goodness edition that will come out soon after I've already invested my money. I still need to buy the new Special-Editions of Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful, and now apparently there is also a Ferris Bueller Special-Edition coming out...again. *sigh*

As for the Superman movie (the Donner-ized edition), I'm looking forward to that as well! I had no idea that 1 and 2 were shot back to back until a friend of mine clued me in. He's REALLY into the whole Superman phenom. He even has the extended version of Superman IV (who knew there was an extended version?!). Here's hoping that Silver Surfer will be done justice in the upcoming Fantastic Four sequel. He's my favorite!!

Thanks for commenting :)
