Kong's King Sized List

Lots and lots of stuff coming this week, especially Kong, which I decided to buy without seeing it, hope it's good, I'll probably watch it tonight at some point. Spent last night sick, called out of work and longed on the couch watching Lost Season 1 today. I can't wait for Season 2 now.

The Andy Milonakis Show - The Complete First Season

12 yr old looking man pulls pranks, hilarity ensues.

Astro Boy - Ultra Collector's Edition DVD Set 1

It's Ultra, that's why it costs $90 damn dollars!

Dragon Ball Z - Fusion Reborn Movie 12

A DBZ movie I've never seen nor heard of...weird.

Get Rich Or Die Tryin' (Widescreen Edition)

I doubt this is half as good as 8 Mile.

Better than being touched by an Angel!

More Reviews Than You Can Shake a Stick At

Comics, Movies, TV, you name it it probably entertained me.

All in the Family Season Three

I got this and Season 4 recently and just finished this one up. Always funny and pretty surprising how relevant some of the stuff is today. Lots of good episodes on this set too, including Edith Flips Her Wig (she "steals" a wig and gets arrested), The Locket (Her locket gets stolen, Archie tries to file an insurance claim), Edith's Winning Ticket (She has the Jefferson's winning lottery ticket), Archie and the Bowling Team and the Battle of the Month. The only episode I didn't really love though was Gloria the Victim. Not because of the extreme subject matter but because I just was never a fan of hers, and that closeup on her at the end makes me want to laugh, it just doesn't work for me.

Aeon Flux: The Complete Series

Man what a bizarre show this was. Great, but weird. Interesting commentaries, they shed some light on some otherwise oblivious aspects of the show. I wish Chung's other show (as a designer, not a creator) Reign the Conqueror was readily available on DVD, but oh well. This was a really great set, tons of extras and they even added some animation back into the episodes. It includes all the shorts (I don't think they ever got better than the first, but they're all good) and some featurettes, plus the commentaries. The movie looked like crapola but watching this makes me want to check it out.

Starship Troopers 2

A LOT of people write the first one off as the worst movie ever made. Well if that was the worst then this is so far beyond that it comes back around to being good. It's complete and utter crap, but unlike most crap films it seems to know it's crap which is a bit of consolation. That and I paid like $2 for it. Avoid it all costs.

Walk the Line

Well it seems you either like this movie or you don't, I'm on the "like" side for sure. I think Phoenix's performance is great but that it's Witherspoon that steal the movie. Good, solid biopic, swell acting and great music, haven't checked out the rest of the set (I got the extended version), but it looks like it's got some great stuff on it. I definitely had an itch for some Cash tunes after watching it.


John C Reilly and Maggie Gyllenhal hardly pass for brother and sister but this is still a good flik. It's a little obvious at times and the end is broadcast a bit too early, but it's still fun, entertaining and mostly keeps you second guessing yourself. Had no idea who Diego Luna is but after seeing his performance here I'm definitely hooked on the guy, hopefully he'll get some bigger roles.

Eh, I'll do the comics later. I've been pretty sick for the last few days, trying to sleep it off, I'll get the list tomorrow and maybe the comics on Wednesday.

The "Too Good to be True" List

Lots of great stuff this week, as the title suggests.

Batman Beyond - The Complete First Season (DC Comics Classic Collection)

I remember thinking "That will never work" way back when the show wasannounced. Shows how much I know, The Return of the Joker is one of the best animated films ever, and the series was pretty darn good too.

Bewitched - The Complete Third Season

Not a fan of the show, but I'm definitely not a fan of the color episodes. The process seemed to make her look older and somehow less attractive. At least the B&W eps have a hot Sam to ogle.

The Billy Wilder DVD Collection

The second collection featuring Stalag 17, Sunset Blvd and Sabrina.


Gotta see this, though I'm sure that voice will be grasting the entire time.

Chicken Little

Wouldn't mind seeing this either.

Derailed (Unrated Widescreen Edition)

I think this was the second release by the Weinsteins.

Dreamer - Inspired By a True Story (Widescreen Edition)

Dakota Fanning fliks made more money than anyothers last year.

Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy, Vol. 2 - Fools Par-Ed-Ise

Somehow not as fun on DVD as on TV, I have Vol. 1.

Everything Is Illuminated

Anyone see this?

The Flying Nun: The Complete First Season

What a strange concept for a TV show...

Gidget - The Complete Series

Looks like Sally's having a Field day. Yeah, I know...

Harry Shearer: Now You See It

Carrer highlights, including SNL skits and HBO specials.

House of the Dead 2: Dead Aim

NOT directed by Uwe Bole (sp? ah who cares), so it might not suck! But it probably will.

Huff: The Complete First Season

I love Azaria and do not remember this show. I'll have to 'Flix it.

In the Mix (Widescreen Edition)

Chazz Palminteri...what happened? You were in The Usual Suspects fro Pete's sake!

Justice League - Season One (DC Comics Classic Collection)

Next to Batman the best animated series ever!

Roseanne Season 3

The better episodes, for sure.

South Park - The Complete Seventh Season

That whole Isaac Hayes fiasco pisses me off.

The Squid and the Whale

Might buy this one blind, I've enjoyed everything I've encountered by him.

Tales from the Crypt - The Complete Third Season

Just bought Season 1.

The Ten Commandments (50th Anniversary Collection)

Now even longer!

The White Shadow: The Complete Second Season

You'd never know what this was about from the title.

The Young Riders - The Complete First Season

I don't remember this show at all, looks fun though.

Okay, now go buy some DVD's!

Happy Birthday Kelly!

Today is my baby sister's birthday. Well, she's hardly a baby at 23, but she'll always be my baby sister. And I know she'll never stumbe on this, but Happy Birthday anyway Kelly!

And always the eyebrow raiser...

My birthday is on the morrow, as is my twin bro's (duh), so don't look for me for the next few days to post anything (well, I don't post much anyway, but you get the idea). I've decided to spend the next four days watching some of my favorite movies, culled from my list a few days back and probably playing a few video games, and I'm even going to squeeze in a few comics.

This week will by my last as baby sitter for little bro Avi too, which means more free time for me starting next week, which will hopefully lead to a lot more output both here and at Comic Book Galaxy. It also means I'll be able to get out of the house before five in the afternoon! Woohoo!

So, yeah, I'm off to get my birthday celebration going, you cats have a great weekend.


(If this didn't go up on March 17th it was because Blogger ate it, several times....)

The List, He Wrote

Not a ton of great things coming out this week, but there's at least one I'll be buying ASAP.

All Dogs Go to Heaven & All Dogs Go to Heaven 2
All Dogs Go to Heaven - Dogs Undercover
All Dogs Go to Heaven: Friends to the Rescue

I remember the first one being decent, but like all Don Bluth films, they can never seem to stop at one.

Anastasia Family Fun Edition

Well, maybe sometimes he does stop at one...

Babylon 5 - The Legend of the Rangers

I've got all these added to my Netflix queue.

Basic Instinct - Ultimate Edition - Unrated Directors' Cut

I liked the last edition, the one with the ice pick pen.

Columbo - The Complete Fourth Season
MacGyver - Season Five
Murder, She Wrote - The Complete Third Season

Proof that you can remake the same thing continuously and people will just keep watching.

Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo - The Little Black Book Edition

Yeah, the world needed this...

Good Night, and Good Luck (Widescreen Edition)

Gotta see this, doubt I'll buy it.

A History of Violence

DEFINITELY buying this one.

I Dream of Jeannie - The Complete First Season (Black & White)

Also available in color.

Ice Age - Super Cool Edition

Dammit. I don't think this has much in the way of new features, but still...dammit!

Planetes (Vol. 6)

I finally started watching Vol. 1, pretty interesting concept, great animation. Of course the dialogue is a little stiff, comes with the territory though.

The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio

For some reason I have no idea what this is about.

Remember the Titans (Director's Cut)

Son of a bitch!

She Spies - The Complete First Season
VIP - The Complete First Season

Two shows probably best avoided.

Simple Life 3: The Interns

Ha, yeah right!

Speed Racer, Vol. 4 - Includes Collectible Die-Cast Toy

I'll likely be getting this for my birthday, only one more volume to go!

And there ya go.

The Massive Post

Lots and lots of stuff to get to, so let's do it.

First, some links!

Birthday wishes to buddies Roger and Gord-o! Really, really late Birthday Wishes to best bud, hero, and all around swell guy Alan David Doane. I got you a present man, and as soon as I can get out of my house before 5 in the afternoon I'm actually going to mail it to you, I swear! I just hope you don't already have it.

While we're talking about the Doane, check out his take on Speakeasy's demise. I'm also happy to report that one of my fav books Helios will not be affected by the demise, going back to their self publishing (I think) route, Dakuwaka Productions. Good for them, cuz I love that book!

Also, since I have failed to link to these until now, CBG reviews of mine: Tales Designed to Thrizzle #2, Cut Flowers, Demo, Happy Birthday Anyway. That pretty much brings it up to speed.

(Not the Will Ferrel movie) Kicking & Screaming coming to a Criterion DVD? Maybe, definitely getting Dazed & Confused though. At least it'll be worth having been bought twice!

Haven't linked to him in a while, so go read Permanent Damage!

Neil Gaiman and Roger Avery are gonna adapt Burns' Black Hole comic. Haven't read it, but I've seen it in the bookstore, always looks tempting, I should really buy it. If the studio doesn't interfere too much this might be a good adaption of the material.

DVD News: My Name is Earl (best new show on TV, funniest now that Arrested MAY be gone...), Brisco County Jr (vote now!), Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends (YAY!!!!), That's My Bush (Bout Damn Time!), X-Men Evolution (We might never see season 4, which would suck), Coach (Hell yeah!), and finally The 4400.

Check this out.

And, Arrested Development may only have a slight case of the Deads, Showtime might have picked the show up (Scrolling required). Now I have to get the channel dammit.

Now, how about some movie talk?

The only movie I've seen in theatres lately has been Match Point. How did this not get a best picture nod? Seriously. Easily Woody allen's best film, possibly ever. Definitely the most daring. Stepping away from NYC may have come a bit late in his career, but hopefully he'll stay away for at least awhile. Just an absolutely brilliant film. Unlike the movie that won for best picture...

Crash. Good acting, mostly. I could do without EVER seeing Sandra Bullock again, and I wish her character had died, but otherwise all around fantastic performances. The script though, it's like watching a Lifetime Original Movie. And it just beats you blatantly over the head with the message. Yes, we're all racist, we get it! And then to wrap it up that way? Ooooh, look, we're overlapping moments of extreme violence with sincerity...aren't we clever!!!! Bah, it was probably the most undeserving film I've ever seen.

Also watched Ultimate Avengers. It was better than Crash, which is saying something because it wasn't really a great movie. Solid animation and a decent translation of the story (the original story, sorry, never read The Ultimates), but man was it short. The extras suck though, just check this out.

Also in the comics section of the DVDs: Sin City Recut Extended Unrated. Not many scenes got added back in, and you can mostly see why they were taken out. Cool extras, what I watched of them. Can't wait for the next one. Also, Tarantino was on Jimmy Kimmel after the Oscars and said this was hands down his favorite film of the year. Then there was Teen Titans Season 1. Sux that this didn't get renewed. Easily it's one of the best interpretations of comics to screen EVER. It takes all the things that worked with the series, ditched a few that didn't and a few that were too "adult", blended in some top notch animation and wound up with a perfect show. After that was The Batman Season 1. I don't really care for the animation here, and as I've said the first few episodes are a bit off. But it picks up steam by the seasons end and we get a pretty good two parter with a new origin for Clayface. Could've done without the Mr. Freeze origin tho, too silly. And Bane's episode was terrible.

What else?

Finally finished Vol. 1 of Universal's Abbott & Costello series. It includedOne Night in the Tropics, Buck Privates, In the Navy, Hold that Ghost, Keep Em Flying, Ride Em Cowbow, Pardon My Sarong and Who Done It? Who Done It? is easily the best of the set, but they're all great. Especially loved Hold that Ghost and Buck Privates. Great music in Ride Em Cowboy too.

The I watched a truly EXCELLENT film called Around the Bend starring Michael Caine, Josh Lucas and Chris Walken. It's about the death of a man that brings his estranged family back together as they fulfill his last requests. Funny and emotional, easily one of the best films I've seen all year, if not the best. Add to that The Wool Cap, a TV movie (I think) starring William H Macy as a man who can't speak. When he's forced to take care of a little girl he comes face to face with the ghosts of his past. Macy is one of my all time favorite actors and this just solidifies it. Like Tom Hanks in Castaway, Macy carries most of the movie by himself and all of it without ever saying anything. Just an amazing movie.

Finally: The L Word Season 2. Just finished this up actually, and it's some damn powerful television. That's pretty much all I can say about it.

Oh so many comics to discuss....

Batman: Year 100 #1

Picked this up as a curiosity more than anything else. I've had little exposure to Pope's work but what I've seen I liked. Him doing Batman seemed odd enough for me to bite, much like Kochalka's Hulk story, just a weird combo. I enjoyed it, the art took some time to get used to, but overall I thought it was a good beginning. I might pick up the other issue, or I may wait to see if it gets collected, haven't decided.

Fury: Peacemaker #1

Eh, Ennis has done better, but he's also done worse (Ghost Rider anyone?). An origin story for a character that really doesn't need one, but at least we've got Robertson on art chores. I'd rather have seen a sequel/prequel to their MAX book instead of this watered down tale. Doubt I'll get the rest, may get the collection.

Jonah Hex #5

Finally! We get a non-Eastwood looking Hex. Unfortunately the story is a rehashed Rio Bravo, only at Christmas...which was a few months ago if I remember correctly... Still, decent story with pretty good art by DeZuniga, sometimes a bit rushed. Awesome cover by Tim Bradstreet though!

Supermarket #1

Loved Kristian's art, the colors blew me away, as lame as that sounds, but I just couldn't get interested in the story at all, at least after the murder of the parents. It all felt forced. I might pick up the second issue, just to see where it goes from here and because the art just kicked my ass.

Tales of the TMNT #20

Another Splinter tale that tries to be emotional and a story featuring some sea-creature girl from way back in the series. Both very forgettable.

TMNT #26

Dammit I missed #25!!!! Can't read this yet. Anyone got an extra copy?

Testament #3

I'm done buying this series. Nothing much has happened to further the plot and the Biblical stuff makes my head hurt.

Ultimate Hulk vs Wolverine #2

I love this. It's dumb, but what the hell would you expect from a book like this? Yu is just killer on art and I love the Hulk visiting a buddhist temple. I know, I'm killing comics by buying this, but dammit it's just fun!

War of the Worlds: The Second Wave #1

Didn't really care for the recent film, but this looks pretty promising. Picking up where the stories left offm this basically recaps everything and sets up the rest of the series, but it's still a good read. Looking forward to seeing what the rest of the issues bring.

X-Factor #4

A few plot points get wrapped up and a few more get introduced. Is it me or is this behind schedule? Still loving David's writing and Sooks art is good, but he'll be off the book soon. Not really sure if I'm missing anything by not reading all the other X-tie in book to Decimation, but I really don't care.

Y, the Last Man #43

Finally a new story arc. Yorick and company are on the trail of the missing monkey, Ampersand. They decide to split up, leading the Doc to her old stomping grounds, which are on fire, and Yorick and 355 into a trap. Nice to have something finally moving on the series. Still one of the few books I look forward to getting monthly, hope things pick up even more.

And finally (really finally) a book!

Yes, an actual book. It's been a long, long time since I read a piece of fiction that didn't have accompanying art, I need to do it more often. The book that got me back into books?

The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor.

Not available stateside just yet, I got a copy sent to me by the author himself, signed and everything. Not trying to brag, just one of the few times in my life where I've been giddy as hell due to the generosity of others. Yeah, his sending me a copy also helps get word out about his book if I review it, but considering my numbers here at the blog that's not a huge bonus for him. Clearly I come out ahead here. Really ahead because DAMN I LOVE THIS BOOK. Beddor takes the Alice in Wonderland story and drops it on its head. I've talked about the comic book tie-in Hatter M at the blog before, and I enjoyed the hell out of it, but the book had me riveted. The only problem I had was that it wasn't a series of books, I'd have loved to read about this vision of Wonderland at length, specifically about the underground battle after Alice is forced to leave. But that's not really a bad thing, Beddor tells his story fully, nothing feels rushed and all the characters developed. I'm glad the Hatter M series came about though, because if there was any character I'd want to see more of it's Hatter Madigan. If you can find a copy of this right now, pick it up. The official US release is this fall in hardcover, which I plan on buying, it's definitely something I'll read again and again. I'm curious to see how much will be changed to "Americanize" it as well. I'll re-read it then, hopefully it won't be altered at all.

To thank all of you who made it this far:

Too bad we don't get the Polish movie posters instead of the american ones. Of course, this makes Howard the Duck look like the most bad ass movie EVER. Check out more here.

You Can Blame Tom

Okay, so I'm now compelled to chime in on this, and while I could have just taken up a TON of his comment space, it's annoying to not be able to write as much as I want, so I'm gonna do it here. Yeah, just moments after I promised something else tomorrow. Well, now you get this and that, good for you.

So, Tom the Dog decided to debate his most favorite directors the other day. That led to a discussion of his favorite films. I'd be hard pressed to list directors, hardly any one person where I genuinely like all of their work, or even most of it. Woody Allen has become a recent favorite, within the last, oh five years or so. Haven't explored much of his earlier work but I've enjoyed his last five or six films, most haven't. His latest, Match Point is an extreme departure from the norm, and a brilliant film all around, highly recommended. I like all of Wes Andersons films, and would rank one or two among my all time favs, but he's made only four movies, hardly a career. I like Spielberg, most of the time, but in the end so many films he makes wind up being so-so with only the acting shining through. Give it up for the man for bringing out the best in his talent, but that's not all a director is responsible for. Ridley Scott? I could make a case for him, but I've really seen only a fraction of his work, but enjoyed all of it I have seen. Same with Terry Gilliam. Tom loves Altman, not so big on him though, but I do love The Player.

No, I don't think I can rightfully take part in that discussion. But the one it lead to? I could talk about that all day. All friggin week if you let me.

Favorite films. I've talked about it before, I'll talk about it again. I'm gonna talk about it right now.

It's a wide topic, and so very hard to narrow the field. Do you try to include something from all your favorite genres? Do you pick films that you think are classics, no matter what anyone else thinks? Do you still include the goofy movies you love undyingly? How do you narrow the field so that in the end you only have fifty? Twenty-five? Ten? One? Almost impossible. Tom tries, and fails, almost anyone would.

I have well over 700 movies on DVD. I've whittled (sp?) that number down quite a bit to get there and I enjoyed every one of them when I watched them. Most of them wouldn't even be tempting to put on a top 100 list, but it's very, very hard to walk to those shelves and pick ten movies I would consider my all time favorites. So, lets rattle off a few that would inevitably make the longest Top Ten list ever.

Let's start at the top, shall we?

Rio Bravo, Shawshank Redemption, Casablanca, Star Wars, Life Aquatic, St. Elmo's Fire, Three Amigos, Breakfast at Tiffanys, The Lion King, O Brother, Donnie Darko, Jurassic Park, The Crow, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Burbs.

Those last three will probably feel tacked on. Hell some people may think a majority of it feels wrong in some way. I wouldn't blame you. Want me to add some more? (Tom, forgive me for stealing your schtick)

Beautiful Girls, Big Fish, As Good As It Gets, Toy Story, The Incredibles, The Royal Tennanbaums, Forrest Gump, Halloween, Ghostbusters, Starship Troopers.

I could go on forever, I swear.

The Breakfast Club, Bad Boys, Con Air, Armageddon, Swingers, Groundhog Day, The Hidden Fortress, Clerks, Oscar, Lilo & Stitch.

That's 35, I could probably do an even fifty without really thinking too much about it. I barely touched on Sci-Fi/Fantasy.

Empire Strikes Back, Alien, Aliens, Alien 3 had it been allowed to go as planned...Serenity, The Princess Bride, Clash of the Titans, Back to the Future.

Coming of age?

No better than Stand By Me and Igby Goes Down I think..

What about sports movies? One of my favorite types of film!

Major League, Rudy, For Love of the Game...

One more to round out the list....let's say The Mexican.

All films I loved. Yeah, it'd be easy to pare that down, real easy, but why bother? I'd be more apt to add to it, there's tons more I love and didn't name. Tons of classics I didn't name either, one particular GLARING omission in Citizen Kane, one of the greatest films ever made. I could give an argument for its omission, but I'm not, it's just not in there.

It's too hard to settle on a definitive list, even if most of those fliks wouldn't even be an after thought on it.

But if I had to. I mean ABSOLUTELY HAD to, well, here goes...

Rio Bravo, Shawshank Redemption, The Lion King, Casablanca, St. Elmo's Fire, Breakfast at Tiffanys, Three Amigos, Beautiful Girls, The Crow, Princess Bride.

Turns out I'm a sentimental old fool. Bed time, I think I may actually talk more about these ten fliks tomorrow.
Baby Looney Tunes, Vols. 1-2

Also available seperately. Decent watching for those with preschoolers I suppose. No more annoying than most entertainments aimed at that age.

The Best of the Best of Electric Company

For those that thought there were too many episodes on the release from a few weeks ago I suppose.

The Brady Bunch - The Complete Final (Fifth) Season

Well, at least that's the end of it all...mostly.

The Cosby Show - Season 2

I liked the original theme, I always wondered why they eventually changed it.

The Flintstones - The Complete Fifth Season

Yeah, I don't really care either.

Three's Company: Season 6

Enter Mr. Roper!

Traffic: Criterion Collection (2000)

Took em long enough. I didn't love the film, but it seems a natural fit for a Criterion release.

Walking Tall - The Complete Series

In case the three movies and the one remake weren't enough.

I promise, a real post tomorrow that includes reviews, thoughts on junk and an update on my life. You don't have to stick around for that last part though.
