MST3K: MANOS - SPECIAL EDITION





Gah!  I've already got the MST3K DVD of Manos, plus the Alpha DVD of Manos, so I probably won't get this unless I find it super-cheap.


Man, there's a lot of good stuff coming out this year!  I'm stoked for Destroy All Monsters and Gozilla Vs. Megalon more than anything.  Those will be day-1 Blu-ray purchases for sure.

Quote
Ed Wood, was an American screenwriter, director, producer, actor, author, and editor, who often performed many of these functions simultaneously. In the 1950s, Wood made a number of cheap genre films (and attempted a number of failed TV pilots), now enjoyed for their technical errors, unsophisticated special effects, large amounts of ill-fitting stock footage, idiosyncratic dialogue, eccentric casts and outlandish plot elements, although his flair for showmanship gave his projects at least a modicum of critical success.

Wood's popularity waned soon after his biggest "name" star, Bela Lugosi, died. He was able to salvage a saleable feature from Lugosi's last moments on film, but his career declined thereafter. Toward the end of his life in the 1970s, Wood made semi-pornographic movies and wrote pulp crime, horror, and sex novels. His real infamy began two years after his death, when he was awarded a Golden Turkey Award as The Worst Director of All Time. His cult following is legion and this collection features some rare footage of the master at work. This six disc box set includes some invaluable visuals and special features.

This is quite a set of Ed Wood films.  The first (and only review - right now) does note that it is missing both "Glen or Glenda" and "Night of the Ghouls."  That's unfortunate, because both are pretty big omissions of his works.  There are quite a few of the films that he wrote, but did not direct, in the set.  I haven't seen a lot of those, so it's interesting for that batch - though I'm worried that they will not be as much "Ed Wood Bad" as boring and tepid bad.



The quality of these sets is mediocre, but there are a whole lot of films in there!  I own quite a few of the notables already ("Hundra" among them), but have been waiting to upgrade from VHS to DVD on others (such as "R.O.T.O.R."). 

Of warning, "Eyes Behind the Stars" is mind-melting in its confusing badness.

OH WOW!  I've been wanting to see that film for a while, and to be able to get it on Blu-ray will be awesome!  Don't worry, it'll be on DVD, too.

This looks interesting, too:



"In this poetic and atmospheric horror fable, set in a village in war-torn medieval Japan, a malevolent spirit has been ripping out the throats of itinerant samurai. When a military hero is sent to dispatch the unseen force, he finds that he must struggle with his own personal demons as well."

Comes out Oct. 18.

Airing on ABC primetime from 1974-1982 and seen by millions, Barney Miller is a situation comedy television series set in a NYC police station in Greenwich Village. Captain Barney Miller is the kind of cop we'd all like to meet. He somehow manages to maintain order over a group of inner-city detectives who gamble for a hobby, get hit on by anything in skirts, go to renaissance philosophy conventions for fun, and would really prefer to be writing. These colorful characters worked together to make one of the funniest sitcoms ever and is cemented in classic TV status. Stars: Hal Linden, Abe Vigoda, Jack Soo, Steve Landesberg, Ron Glass, and Max Gail.

Sony released the first season in 2004, and followed up in 2008-09 with the second and third seasons. But since then they've been quiet, and fans have gotten to thinking that they would never see the rest of the show's 8-season run on DVD. But now Shout! Factory has picked up the license for this legendary sitcom, and is jumping into it whole-hog with an October 25th release of Barney Miller - The Complete Series! You'll get every episode on 25 discs, with guest stars that include the likes of Jeffery Tambor, Ray Sharkey, Marla Gibbs, Adam Arkin, Charlotte Rae, Linda Lavin, Doris Roberts, Dave Madden, Christopher Lloyd, Joe Regalbuto and Meshach Taylor.

The Emmy- and Golden-Globe-winning show will also be accompanied on DVD by "tons" of newly-produced and never-before-seen bonus features, including a 32-page Commemorative Book, New Interviews with the Cast (Hal Linden, Max Gail, Abe Vigoda), the Original Unaired Pilot, Writers Commentary on Select Episodes, and - whoa! - the First Season of the spin-off show Fish starring Abe Vigoda (note that the spin-off lasted for two seasons and 35 episodes; the 13-episode first season was more closely tied to Barney Miller since Vigoda's "Detective Phil Fish" regularly appeared in BOTH shows during the episodes that aired in 1977; Fish retired from the NYPD at the beginning of the Fall '77 season for each of these sitcoms).

Shout! is timing this title's street date to be on store shelves during the holiday gift-giving season, and the package art (shown below) clearly will appeal to fans. If you already own the individual season sets for the first three broadcast years, then you'll be wondering if SF plans to put out separate packages for Seasons 5 through 8. While the studio hasn't officially said, our experience is that they almost certainly will, and have done so in the past whenever they've started with these "complete season" packages (after all, the episodes are already produced, so there's no reason not to capitalize on that!). If you want the big set, though, then you'll be happy to know that it clocks in at $159.99 SRP (that's like $20 per Barney Miller season, or just $6.40 per DVD!)...and retailers such as Amazon will certainly discount the set from there. Hard to find fault with that! Or this amazing box to hold it all:

I'm going to need to start a special October movie savings account.

Mill Creek will be releasing Gamera 3: The Revenge of Iris on Blu-ray around October, along with a special 2-pack that included their previous Gamera: Guardian of the Universe/Gamera: Attack of Legion and special slipcover.

http://www.scifijapan.com/articles/2011/07/28/gamera-3-and-gamera-trilogy-coming-to-blu-ray-in-september/



There's a typo on the trilogy image at the moment, it says "Gurdian" instead of "Guardian".  Hope they fix it!

Mill Creek will also be releasing the Daimajin films on Blu-ray this year!

Oh and Mill Creek said those covers are just promotional and aren't the final product.

And the date is September 28th I believe.

Aside from the typo I think they make great covers.  I'm glad Mill Creek has released decent Blu-rays so far.  I guess as long as they get ahold of good masters they do alright.  Something that I think they should do is put some of their mega-packs of 50+ movies on Blu-ray discs, but still have them in standard definition.  Basically they could put at least 10-20 movies on a single disc, but they'd have to slap a big disclaimer on the package stating that they aren't high-def.  I'd buy 'em just to save space.
