New on DVD...

It's Tuesday, and the new DVD releases are hitting the shelves. Here's some highlights, things to buy or maybe put on your Netflix list:

Batman & Robin: The Serial CollectionAs reviewed at Jabootu.
The Best of the New Scooby-Doo Movies This collects 15 of those 'hour' long episodes where the Mystery Gang met up with a bewilderingly ecletic variety of guest stars. Included here are the episodes featuring (the dead) Laurel & Hardy, Mama Cass Elliot, the 3 Stooges, Batman and Robin, the Harlem Globetrotters (three times!!!), Don Adams, Don Knotts (twice!), Jonathan Winters (with a plot involving giant chickens, if I remember correctly), Dick Van Dyke and Speedbuggy. Dammit, what about the episode where they meet Jerry Reed?!
Bring Me the Head of Alfredro Garcia / Loved by some, but one of the Medved's 50 Worst Films of All Time. You decide.
Clutch Cargo Seasons 1 & 2 Had to give this one lip service.
Dam Busters Part of the 'British War Collection' box set out this week, also available by itself. Brits invent bouncing bomb to destroy protected Nazi dam.
Firewalker As reviewed at Jabootu.

Interesting...Lyz of AYCYAS didn't think Dam Busters would ever be released on DVD because of some racial slurs (involving a dead dog). (Her review is great.)

That's right. (Good catch.) Maybe they dubbed over it.

I've the film in my Netflix queue. I'll let people know when I see it.
