New on DVD...

Not a lot new on DVD this week, perhaps because of the holiday.

The big news this week is the release of the recent revival of one of the world’s most beloved sci-fi series, Doctor Who The Complete First Season. Its street priced at an exorbitant $100 (bastards), but can be found for around $65.

Other TV sets this week include Alice: TV Favorites, and Charlie’s Angels S3.

Plan 9 From Outer Space is out in a new edition, including both the original B&W and a (blech) colorized version. However, Mike Nelson provides a commentary, so there’s that. There’s additional Ed Wood content (home movies, commercials), but don’t get rid of your old Image DVD, which contains the brilliant feature length Flying Saucers Over Hollywood documentary.

Meanwhile, the original Little Shop of Horrors is getting the same treatment (Nelson commentary, etc.)

The Matador is a black comedy with Pierce Brosnan trading off his Bond image to play an aging hitman experiencing a mid-life crisis.

‘80s softcore fans will be pleased to hear that two of the decades pivotal sex comedies, including the obligatory “high school guy hooks up with hot older chick” flick, are hitting disc in My Chauffer (with Valley Girl’s Deborah Foreman) and My Tutor (Emmanuelle’s Sylvia Kristal). The films are available separately or in a pack.

Ken is back, baby!

MY TUTOR stars Caren Kaye. Sylvia Kristel is in PRIVATE LESSONS, which is already on DVD. Ah, hell, buy them all.

Erm, the complete First Series of Dr Who? Is this the biggest stalinist rewrite ever?
