Tarantino astonishes with his World War II wish fulfillment fantasy with the two women (the French woman and the German actress/
British spy Bridget Von Hammersmark) and the evil Nazi Colonel Landa stealing the movie.The mock featurette on the making of NATION’S PRIDE is classic.
delivers with the best Star Trek movie in 13 years.It is a film that brings
in fans and non-fans alike.It is faithful to the old while opening a new path
for the franchise in the most successful Star Trek film.The making-of
featurettes and deleted scenes make the 2-Disc set worth buying.
three Wong Kar Wai’s films that came to DVD in 2009.It is the best of
the three.The films deal with lost love and unrequited love (as in the case
of FALLEN ANGELS).HAPPY TOGETHER is more for fans of the director and not an
introduction to the director.FALLEN ANGELS of ASHES OF TIME REDUX are more suitable
for an intro to new viewers.
of fighting over who owns the rights to HARDWARE and one cancelled release by Miramax, Richard Stanley’s low budget
sci-fi/ horror classic makes it to DVD courtesy of Severin Films.One of my high
points of DVDs out this year was finally watching a film I haven’t seen for years.
movie to the prequel to BATTLESTAR GALACTICA was released nine months before the series starts airing (it premieres on Jan 22, 2010).It is different from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA because it shows where everything began
and not focus on space based drama.
GALACTICA sets are always great to own and the final season made me sad to see the show go.This character based drama is filled with issues and themes.Extended
episodes, featurettes, deleted scenes, and audio commentaries/ podcasts fills these sets of one of the best sci-fi dramas
ever.Too bad they couldn’t include THE FACE OF THE ENEMY webisodes.
is the latest series from Joss Whedon that gets cancelled in season 2.Watching
the DVD set made me love the show when random episodes made me not want to watch the show.The two unaired episodes (including the original pilot) are the best extras in the set.
Better than MOONLIGHT and making me yearn to watch FOREVER KNIGHT,
this vampire/ human dynamic reminds me of FOREVER KNIGHT mixed with HIGHLANDER.Also
go read the Tanya Huff novels the series is based on.
