DVD Releases: February 23, 2010
Out this week we have four DVDs to feature: Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, Ghost Hunters: Season Five, Part One, LEGO: The Adventures of Clutch Powers, Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant. Do we Love It, Rent it, or Avoid Like Plague?
Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths
: In a parallel Earth ruled by the crime syndicate, the Justice League must fight their evil doppelgangers in a battle that would be dead even, except that their malicious counterparts are willing to do the one thing Batman and Superman never would… kill. The special features include over 2 hours of bonus content! I've really enjoyed DC's direct to DVD projects like Green Lantern: First Flight
, Justice League - The New Frontier
. Because of their past successes I would buy this one sight unseen.
Ghost Hunters: Season Five, Part One
: Always a great show. This set includes episodes: Betsy Ross House, Star Island, Edith Wharton Estate, Club Dead, Soul Searching, Titanic Terror, Crossing Over, Garden State Asylum, Inhuman Entity, I am Not Guilty, Civil Wars Spirits, Essex County Penitentiary.
Buy it / Rent it
LEGO: The Adventures of Clutch Powers
: This one is so weird that I couldn't pass it by without mentioning it. I get the feel that this will watch like the lego games will play which means I will at least laugh at it. Clutch Powers and his team of LEGO experts on their adventure from LEGO City to the Space Police prison planet to the medieval world of Ashlar where they must help the rightful heir to the King’s throne find the courage to regain the kingdom from the evil wizard Mallock the Malign. Their brick-building skills will be put to the ultimate test as they face off against Mallock’s skeleton army. Get ready for an action-packed adventure like nothing you have ever seen before, The Adventures of Clutch Powers!
Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant
: Based on the first three books of the book series The Saga of Darren Shan
by author Darren Shan. A fantasy-adventure about a teenager who unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires. Pulled into a fantastic life of misunderstood sideshow freaks and grotesque creatures of the night, one teen will vanish from the safety of a boring existence and fulfill his destiny in a place drawn from nightmares. Still a renter, I've heard mixed reviews of the movie and even netflix thinks I will give it a 3.6 which is in the wild card part of the rating.
