Yet even more DVD announcements...

Still your beating heart, for the Blind Dead Collection is due on September 27th. The five disc set features the complete quartet of the atmospheric Euro zombie flicks, and an extra DVD of extras. Check out that groovy packaging! The complete details of each separate disc can be found here. The set is selling on the Net for about $60-$70. See for the best deal.

Fans of silent comedy will welcome Kino's The Harold Lloyd Collection 2, out on September 13th.

Sony will be releasing the entire series of the enjoyably awful King Kong cartoon series, memorable for it's villain Dr. Who (!), for turning Kong into Gentle Ben, and for it's unforgettable theme song. ("You know the name, of, King Kong/You know the fame, of, King Kong/Ten times as big as a maaaaan.") It's due out in November.

Criterion will be releasing a new, updated edition of the essential Jean-Pierre Melville French noir classic Le Samourai in October. Criterion will also be releasing (under the collection title Rebel Samurai) a set of '60s Samurai movies, including including Masaki Kobayashi's Samurai Rebellion , Hideo Gosha's Sword of the Beast , Masahiro Shinoda's Samurai Spy and Kihachi Okamoto's Kill! Each film is also available by itself. Finally, in even better news than the Le Samourai reissue, is Criterion's new, more elaborate release of the classic suspenser The Wages of Fear, remade by William Friedkin as Sorcerer.

Finally, a zillion more TV season sets have been announced, including season one of The White Shadow.

Now all they have to do is release the 70s, or was it 80s, Godzilla cartoon. I still remember one of the creatures Godzilla fought was a magnetic turtle. Not to mention Godzilla's son.

Godzookie? Gaak. Not to mention Godzilla didn't even shoot his radioactive flame, and hence was just a big dinosaur.

The Tri-Star movie initially wanted to take away Godzilla's flame as well. (If you look, they just optically inserted it after fan complaints.) What's up with that?

What are they going to do differently for Wages of Fear?

I loved the old Godzilla show as a kid. Loved it.

I had no taste.
