THE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 11th



Hellboy II: The Golden Army
d. Guillermo Del Toro
c. Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, Jeffrey Wright and Seth McFarlane

Special Features

• Feature Commentary with Director Guillermo del Toro

• Feature Commentary with Cast Members Jeffrey Tambor, Selma Blair and Luke Goss

• Set Visits: Seven mini documentaries provide viewers with unlimited access to the Hellboy II: The Golden Army set.

• Troll Market Tour with Guillermo del Toro: Using sketches and
backstage video, del Toro walks the audience through the creation of
one of the film’s most distinctive sets, the legendary Troll Market.

• Animated Zinco Epilogue Comic

• Deleted Scenes With Optional Commentary by Director Guillermo del Toro

• Prologue: A special introduction to the DVD from director Guillermo del Toro.

• Pre-Production Vault:



o Director’s Notebook: Exclusive interviews, image scans and text from Guillermo del Toro’s personal notebook.

o Concept Art Gallery: Original designs and concepts for Hellboy II: The Golden Army’s costumes and sets.



• Hellboy: In Service Of The Demon: Over two hours of footage that takes fans into the creation of this film.

• Production Workshop: Professor Broom’s Puppet Theatre: A special look
inside the opening sequence of the film including storyboards and
animatics.

• Image Gallery Featuring Teaser Banners, One-Sheets and Poster Explorations

• DVD Rom: Hellboy II: The Golden Army Script


Hellboy returns to underperform at the Box Office. Seriously, I love the comics and I respect Mignola’s body of work. It’s just that Del Toro can’t seem to connect to the mainstream with these films. It’s not like the Hellboy Animated DVDs set the world on fire, but they found a respectable base. Where is that base when it comes time for these films to be released? It can’t be a legion of fanboy protesting the film out of Seth McFarlane being the voice of Johann Krauss.


Oh well, Universal is counting on Nerd OCD to get the best of their official Dr. Who licensed wallets. Three DVD variants, a limited Collector’s Gift Set and a Blu-Ray release. Meanwhile, The African Queen still isn’t on DVD. Ponder that one.




Star Wars: The Clone Wars
d. Dave Filoni
c. Voice Actors and Prequel Actors that were still cheap enough to hire for animated day-labor

Special Features

  • The Clone Wars: The Untold Stories – Preview stories, vehicles, planets and battles of Season One of The Clone Wars TV Series
  • The Voices of Clone Wars – Voiceover actors and animated characters in split-screen performances
  • A New Score – Composer Kevin Kiner establishing a new musical identity for the series
  • Gallery of Concept and Production Art
  • Webisodes – 6 Making-of-Featurettes
  • Deleted Scenes – Cargo Bay, Platform Droid Fight, Rancor Pit and Through the Tanks
  • Trailers

I got through the prequels with a smile on my face. I played the video games as they progressively got shittier. This film permanently killed my desire to ever see another Star Wars product again. You finally did it, George. One of the last apologists has thrown in their hat.





Kung Fu Panda
d. Mark Osborne and John Stevenson
c. Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman and Ian McShane

Special Features

– Learn to Draw: Crane, Monkey, Viper, Po, Mantis & Tigress

– Dumpling Shuffle

– Pandamonium Activity Kit

– Sound Machine

– HP Printables

– Custom Printables

Jack Black finds a new outlet for his non Tenacious schtick. Maybe it’s because the Dreamworks Animation output has been so poor, but the film was quiet enjoyable. It’s Western enough to not bore the Americans and it’s Eastern enough to keep the Asians from rolling their eyes uncomfortably. If you buy the DVD Two-Pack, you get to watch a bonus film. I love it when Dreamworks finds new ways to turn a profit off unused footage. Very Corman of them.

A QUICK WORD ABOUT ECO FRIENDLY DVD CASES
