Every week I make a list of notable discs being released so I can figure out what I “need” to buy. ;)

Daybreakers [Blu-ray] – I wasn’t bowled over by this movie when I “reviewed it at Fantastic Fest”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIwo5mDsupU but I’m starting to come around after reading some of the positive reviews for it. Sometimes distance can make the mundane seem interesting.

Edge of Darkness – I love revenge movies so when I tell you this movie was “ok” then you should probably avoid it.

Hang Em High (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) [Blu-ray] – This isn’t Clint Eastwood’s best film, but even a mediocre Eastwood film is a great one.

High Anxiety [Blu-ray] – This isn’t Mel Brooks’s best film, but even a mediocre Brooks film is a great one.


History of the World Part 1 [Blu-ray] or Robin Hood: Men in Tights [Blu-ray] – Sometimes I feel like I’m repeating myself.


The Karate Kid [Blu-ray], The Karate Kid, Part II [Blu-ray], or The Karate Kid / The Karate Kid, Part II Boxed Set [Blu-ray] – Of course I have to own the 80’s classic, and if it’s only $10 more for the sequel I suppose I’ll get that, too.

M (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray] – When Criterion puts out a classic Peter Lorre and Fritz Lang movie, we should all be compelled to buy it.

Magnificent Seven Collection (4pc) (P&S Ws) [Blu-ray] – One of the most iconic Westerns of all time bundled with three of the most unremarkable sequels of all time.

Rock ‘N’ Roll High School (Roger Corman’s Cult Classics) [Blu-ray] – Roger Corman made the ‘B’ in Budget movie a capital letter, and he included the awesome raw punk power of the Ramones.

Daria: The Complete Animated Series – There’s probably a very narrow age range of potential buyers for this set, and I fit in it.
