This Week in DVD is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy, Circuit City, and Fry’s.
Please don’t take the commentary on the movies and TV shows too seriously, as they’re meant not to be reviews but rather previews that include the general thoughts and ramblings of a twice-committed DVD addict. In regards to movies and shows the author hasn’t seen, the DVD release is placed in its respective category based on critic and audience response.
MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 (20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION)
Complete with awesome tin packaging, 4 lobby cards and a figurine of Crow T. Robot, this MST3K 20th Anniversary set is a must-have for any fans of the series. The 4 previously unreleased episodes it houses are First Spaceship on Venus (an underrated gem), Laserblast (the last episode before Comedy Central dropped the show and it moved to the Sci-Fi channel), Werewolf (a personal favorite of mine – “It’s a WAHR-WILF!”), and Future War (the most recently made film to be featured on MST3K). Overall, an excellent collection of episodes, and a worthwhile set for fans to salivate over.
Notable Extras: Three-part “The Oral History of MST3K” feature, 2008 Comic-Con MST3K Reunion Panel, original film trailers, “Variations On A Theme Song” (featuring all six versions of the theme song).
