The Crow: Wicked Prayer

You paid money for that film?
   E...

It was buy 2 get 3 free.  I couldn't find anything better for my final selection.  I've never seen it and I think this is the first movie that EF has been in since T2 so I thought I'd give it a shot.  Haven't watched it yet though, but thanks for letting me know it sucks ass.

Anyone pick up Gotham Knight today?

I plan on grabbing it tomorrow when we stop by Target, but haven't decided on which version.  Is there a big reason to grab the 2-disc over the regular release?  I usually grab 2 disc version of my favorite movies, when possible, but kind of take it on a case by case basis on these sort of sets.

Well it's worth it alone if you love Batman: The Animated Series like I do. The bonus disc has some sort of story about the creation and evolution of Batman, a feature on Gotham and its heroes/villains/citizens and 4 of Bruce Timm's favorite episodes of Batman:TAS. Haven't gotten to watch it yet but I plan on doing so soon.

I just saw that in the review over at IGN, it sounds like the special features are pretty spiffy overall (10 out of 10 from IGN I believe).

Transformers DVD w/Tranforming Megatron Case

I'm glad I went the Best Buy Route and didn't get the Optimus case at Target as I'd be compelled to buy this one to go with it.

That's one heck of a deal.

Picked this up a while back:



Best TV show ever.  :)  Just started season 4 the other day.  Kind of bummed that I'm almost done with it...it's become regular viewing over the last few weeks.

Just saw some more rumors/pics of the Indiana Jones DVD release(s) over at TheRaider.net.  I think this is for an overseas release, but the set with the Crystal Skull replica does look pretty spiffy.

I don't usually buy those box sets but can see myself picking this one up.

Even though I'm sure it'll just be a small, plastic bauble, I'm a sucker for those types of boxed sets.  I'd buy it.

I don't know if I'd buy a boxed set of all 4.  I already bought the "Complete" series set of 3 films...

From the SDCC floor preview & it looks like to be a Best Buy exclusive from Sideshow. I so want that DVD set.  8)

I see that Starship Troopers 3 is coming out tomorrow.  Has anyone even seen ST2   ???  I heard that movie sucked, but it obvioulsy must have made some dough to warrent another sequel.

I haven't seen the second film.  I've seen a couple clips from it and it didn't look all that good.  Not sure how this one is.  I know that just having Johnny Rico (Casper Van Dien) in it again wasn't really enough of a draw to make me want to run out and buy it.

I really loved the first film so eventually I ought to track down 2 and then this one and watch them.  Matter of fact, I don't even own the first film on DVD yet... Should probably fixt that some time.

Starship troopers was a lot of fun, but I think it's stretching the boundaries a bit to call it a film.....:)
