RT on DVD: Final Futurama Flick, Pirates II, and Akira on Blu-ray

Summary

This week we recommend the fourth and final Futurama movie (Into the Wild Green Yonder), but only for diehard Planet Express devotees; otherwise, your new release options are rotten (Sex Drive, The Haunting of Molly Hartley). Horror fans, however, have something new to cheer about (Wes Craven's original Last House on the Left Collector's Edition, Dario Argento's Four Flies on Grey Velvet), as do those with more esoteric tastes (Noah Wyle as The Librarian in Curse of the Judas Chalice and Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge). Blu-ray viewers have the best choices of the week, with new remasterings to devour (Akira, The French Connection, Vanishing Point, and The Bird with the Crystal Plumage). Back to Article

Oh come on! Bender's Big Score was ok, billion backs was horrible, but the last 2 are actually almost as funny as the original series.

I guess it's all up to people's tastes, but this quote from Big Game was priceless:

Fry: Hey, is that a Hobbit?
Bender: No, that's a Hobo & a rabbit.....but they're making a hobbit

JCVD is out this week? That i would pick up i've been wanting to see it. I'm going to pass on everything else this week, but i might rent sex drive. I personally didn't care for any of the Futurama movies, but I've always found the show to be hit or miss... more hits than misses though.

To Jokerboy, definitely give Australia a go if you haven't seen it, i thought it was great. Although i also liked Romeo Juliet and Moulin Rouge.

I'm probably alone, but I LOVED all of the Futurama DVDs.

I love Futurama!

I like Pirates One better. Jesse jane had better scenes in it plus Devon was there!

Remember the Oscar Race of '94? Gump. Vegas. Red. Check out the analysis!
