THE WEEK OF JUNE 16th, 2009



FAMILY GUY: VOLUME SEVEN

Special Features

  • Uncensored Commentaries
  • Featurettes
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Three Animatics


Family Guy
comes to DVD this Tuesday with its seventh volume. It would’ve been far too easy to actually release a full season. So, McFarlane and company just randomly assign starts and stops to their annual work. The three-disc set runs from the return of James Woods to their brush-up with O.J. Simpson.

That’s not to say there aren’t a few slightly funny episodes thrown in the mix. You get Long John Peter with Chris Griffin’s ode to Vision Quest. Plus, Stewie and Brian travel back in time to Nazi Germany. Needless to say, the material is appropriate for all ages.



FRIDAY THE 13th (2009)

Special Features

  • Digital Copy
  • Featurettes
  • Deleted Scenes


Friday the 13th is a decent attempt to recapture that magic of murdering young people in a rural setting. There’s a lot of pot, some boobs and a weird dude screaming like a girl. Derek Mears is no Kane Hodder, but I’d take him over a Ken Kirzinger anytime. The Killer Cut mentioned on the box art only provides for 10 extra minutes added to the film. So, if you want to see television teen actors try to wax dramatic and mop around…you’re in luck!




BURN NOTICE: SEASON TWO

Special Features

  • Audio Commentaries
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Gag Reel
  • Featurettes


Burn Notice is the best show that USA currently airs. Mixing the best of the spy mythos with the lazy American approach to most creative fiction, we get the tale of a n’er do well trying to make his way after being retired. Bruce Campbell, Gabrielle Anwar and Sharon Gless provide awardworthy support as the f’d up individuals in Michael Weston’s life. The second season comes to DVD loaded with the same commentaries and featurettes that covered similar material on the prior release. The sight and sounds of Miami never looked as lovely as they do on this show. I just wish that more people would take the chance to view it in HD.

OBSESSIVE DVD NERDS, I BESEECH YOU!

The CHUD Sewer is a large place. I’m willing to bet that we’ve all seen
the worst of the worst shit ever dropped onto the Home Video market.
Therefore, I’m asking you to participate in a new project.



I want to see what’s the worst shit to ever be sold to us on DVD, VHS,
Beta, VCD or DIVX. I want to hear your worst experiences with any tape,
disc or whatever. Got a shitty retail experience involving the purchase
of a DVD or a VHS tape…I want to hear it.



Did you ever get suckered into early adoption? Do you still own a
laserdisc player? I want to hear your collective experiences.
Preference will be shown to those that send in videos, but I’m also
looking for good written entries as well.



Post your videos, your links, your essays, your mad ramblings on the CHUD message board.

THE PERSONAL CRITERION COLLECTION




I had an idea for a subset column for The Special Edition. Many people
want to have Criterions in their collection. Many people pretend to
like half of the films that Criterion releases. But, what about those
people that honestly can’t be bothered to be told what to like. What
about them?

That’s why I want to test the waters and see if
this floats. I want the readers of CHUD and this dear article to head
to the Boards and nominate their Personal Criterion Collection entry. I
want to see explanations and not just mindless listing of entries,
people.

All titles eligible are previously released DVD/BR media that you believe to be essential/necessary to the collection of the Home Entertainment enthusiast.

LIST DOWN FOR THIS WEEK. WILL RETURN NEXT WEEK.

HERE’S THE LINK TO NOMINATE MORE TITLES.
