Laserblast: Slim Pickin’s

There is little in way of excitment regarding this week’s home video releases, which feature only a bare handful of cinefantastique titles: a couple of oldies, some anime, a few DTVs, and two multi-pack sets. Disney presents a 45th Anniversary DVD of their animated film, THE SWORD IN THE STONE (derived from T. H. White’s excellent novel The Once and Future King). MEN IN BLACK arrives on Blu-ray, so that you can buy it again. There is a GUNDAN SEED DESTINY TV Movie 1 DVD and a GUNDAN SEED DESTINY TV Movie Limited Edition DVD. “Undead Horrors” packs together five obscure titles (e.g. ZOMBIE COP). “Tokyo Shock Horror Pack Triple Feature” includes JAPANESE HELL, CURSED, and SAMURAI CHICKS.

Check out this week’s DVD and Blu-ray releases below the fold.

Things pick up next week with the home video release of 10,000 B.C. and THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES, plus some interesting classic and cult titles like MAN OF A THOUSAND FACES, JOURNEY TO THE FAR SIDE OF THE SUN and THE EYE 3 (the U.S. DVD retitling of THE EYE 10).
