This week on DVD (07/19/05)...

A slow week on DVD.

By default, I guess the title of the week is Rottweiler, pretty much just because it's a killer bionic dog movie, and directed by semi-cult helmer Brian Yuzna. Meh.

While I'm extremely happy that so many old TV shows are hitting DVD (it's the fasting growing segment of the market right now), I'm a little bewildered that so many old great shows (Wild Wild West, Kolchak--hopefully that will hit shelves when the new TV show begins it's four or five week run) are unavailable, that stuff like Cleopatra 2525: Complete Series is coming out. To each their own. Other lame shows coming out with various season sets this week include Dead Like Me, Sliders, Saved by the Bell and Earth 2.

Keanu Reeves' Constantine hits shelves in both 'full' screen and widescreen editions, as well as a third 'deluxe' edition with commentaries, deleted scenes, a music video, etc.

There's another Crow movie out--who knew?--Crow: The Wicked Prayer, featuring the amusing b-movie cast of David Boreanez, Dennis Hopper, Edward Furlong (as the Crow) and Tara "Man, I really shouldn't have gotten that awful boob job" Reid. If I had to guess, I'd say Furlong is killed by criminals, comes back to life with supernatural powers and a lot of pancake make-up, and reaps his revenge.

Speaking of ex-Buffy players, little Dawn gets her turn at stardom in the teeny booper targeting The Ice Princess.

Another Urban Legends movie (!) is out; Urban Legends: Bloody Mary. You've been warned.

Regarding the comment about why the GOOD old shows aren't coming out on DVD...

I figure that most of these shows are being currently cannabilized for remakes/series, and the Powers That Be don't want us to be able to accurately remember what it was that made them good in the first place. Because, let's face, THEY won't.

I'm afraid Twitterpate may very well be right...

I guess that means a big screen adaptation of Saved by the Bell is pretty unlikely, huh? *sigh*
