Sorry, but it's true. There are countless series and movies and so forth being released this week that are essentially boob delivery devices. Hell, I didn’t even list them all (go check out The Big Bust Theory on your own time). Still, boobs notwithstanding, there are some gems to be found in this week's DVD and Blu-ray releases.
This megapopular anime stars a young high school student who gets caught up in a supernatural battle between demons and fallen angels, which somehow usually ends up with ladies constantly showing him their boobs.
Fox’s CG movie about tiny people called the Leafmen battling against the equally tiny Boggans, and the full-size human girl who gets caught up in the conflict. Stars an obese glowworm named Nim voiced by Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler. I can’t deal with that at all.
A cheap, bare bones version of the recent three-disc, extras-laden Peter Pan Diamond Edition set from earlier this year. I don’t know why they both get to be called the Diamond Edition, because this is definitely a shittier diamond.
All 26 episodes on seven Blu-ray discs, complete with a ton of extras, including outtakes, a ton of deleted scenes, a breakdown of the episode “A Night in Sick Bay,” a mini-doc on Levar Burton as a director, a mini-doc on Jolene Blaylock and her sexy Vulcan-ness, some Easter eggs, and more.
Another boob-filled anime, but this one is a rather acclaimed interpretation of Lupin the 3rd’s femme fatale, returning the series to its more adult, deadly n’ sexy James Bond-ish roots. Produced by Cowboy Bebop director Shinichiro Watanabe.
Barbi Benton and Klaus Kinski star separately in these low-budget horror flicks about doctors that are extremely confused about the Hippocritic Oath.
Straight from Saturday night’s series finale to your DVD player! Hal the vampire, Tom the werewolf and Alex the ghost finally match the original Being Human stars as the series comes to a close.
A couple of kids visit their archaeological father in China only to discover a Chinese dragon in this Australian/Chinese-collaboration children’s movie.
A doctor kidnaps and disfigures attractive showgirls in what seems to be a very misguided attempt to heal his daughter’s scarred face in this 1960s Spanish horror flick. Boobs ensure.
A.k.a. Christine, Princess of Eroticism, which I didn’t even know was a country, let alone a monarchy. ATTENTION: THERE ARE NO ZOMBIES IN THIS MOVIE. THE LIVING DEAD ARE IN FACT VAMPIRES. (ALSO, THERE ARE BOOBS.)
Full Moon’s 1991 version of the Edgar Allen Poe short story, set during the Spanish Inquisition, and starring Lance Henriksen, Jeffrey Combs, a visibly drunk Oliver Reed, and, of course, boobs.
One of the earliest scifi anime from Leiji Mastumoto, creator of Star Blazers/Space Battleship Yamato and Captain Harlock.
After the Rapture occurs, Anna Kendrick catches Satan’s lascivious eye and must figure out a way to banish him before she has to bone him. Worth watching for Craig Robinson’s hilariously filthy Lord of Darkness alone.
An extremely strange set containing 16 of the Bill & Ted cartoon’s 21 episodes. So the other five are “the worst,” I guess? Weird.
I just wanted to point out that despite its title, this anime fantasy series is not a wacky comedy/send-up of the fantasy genre. Nope, it’s really called Legend of the Legendary Heroes without even a hint of parody. Just FYI.
The first season of the classic shojo anime created by Astro Boy’s Osamu Tezuka. A princess pretends to be a boy to keep an evil Duke from ascending to the throne, and uses her bravery, her sword skills and her kindness to protect the people of her kingdom.
