DVD Shopping Bag: Videodrome and the Addams Family Cartoon by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(December 14, 2010)
Last week I mentioned that Videodrome was being released by the Criterion Collection on Blu-ray. Criterion DVDs and Blu-rays are always the best of the best so I thought I would give David Cronenberg’s 1983 film a shot. It was, after all, selected by the

DVD Shopping Bag: Inception and Sorcerer’s Apprentice Blu-rays by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(December 07, 2010)
As we are officially into December, the titles will be dropping like crazy. This week alone has the biggest no brainer of the year, next to Toy Story 3: Inception. Christopher Nolan’s non-Batman masterpiece is both thought provoking and entertaining. A h

DVD Shopping Bag: Twilight Zone Season 2 on Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(November 30, 2010)
It should come as no surprise that Image Entertainment quickly followed up their season 1 of The Twilight Zone on Blu-ray (see column) with Season 2. Again, they have spared no expense with bonus features, commentaries, and additional Rod Serling TV specia

DVD Shopping Bag: Six Million Dollar Man: The Complete Series by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(November 23, 2010)
“Steve Austin, astronaut. A man barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster”. -Osc

DVD Shopping Bag: Modern Times of Avatar on Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(November 16, 2010)
It is that time of year again where we dig down deep and give our fellow movie geeks DVDs and Blu-rays. If you are like me, you probably second guess yourself on what they may or may not already have.

DVD Shopping Bag: The Goonies 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(November 09, 2010)
Yes, I know Scott Pilgrim came out today. If you haven’t seen it, shame on you. If you have, you already know what I know. This is the best DVD/ Blu-ray to hand out as a gift to all your friends, who haven’t seen it. Edgar Wright really did make a game

DVD Shopping Bag: Toy Story 3 Hits Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(November 02, 2010)
Prepare to go where Mania’s DVD Shopping Bag has never gone before. That’s right guys and gals we are going to talk about sappy things like crying at movies and getting all choked up. This week Toy Story 3 arrives on Blu-ray and DVD and it really is th

DVD Shopping Bag: Back to the Future on Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(October 26, 2010)
All right, I got a really tough sale this week for you Maniacs; Back to the Future. Quite possibly the last unspoiled trilogy finally makes its debut on Blu-ray. A vast majority of the special features are the same as the 2002 box set. There are a few nice

DVD Shopping Bag: Psycho 50th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(October 19, 2010)
Today, Universal Studios unleashes Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho on Blu-ray. Mania’s Tim Janson will have a full review later in the week. The special features are identical to the Special Edition-Universal Legacy Series DVD which I reviewed for Mania (see

DVD Shopping Bag: The Exorcist on Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(October 12, 2010)
Last week, The Exorcist (both Extended and the Original Version) joined the ranks of many fine other Warner Brothers Collector’s Editions. If only Warner Brothers Home Video would go all out like this with every title. They would set a new standard for B

DVD Shopping Bag: George Pals The Power and Atlantis by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(October 05, 2010)
Sadly, a copy of the new Exorcist Blu-ray did not arrive in time for this week’s column. I did happen to catch a theatrical screening of the Blu-ray last week and in a word it was incredible. While the brief glimpse at the special features was also a tre

DVD Shopping Bag: Fringe Season 2, KONG and the Astonishing X-Men by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(September 28, 2010)
A month ago, the DVD Shopping Bag was really short on titles. Thankfully, a slew of classic Roger Corman titles became available and gave us something to get excited about. Having a title to talk about this week isn’t the problem. The problem is picking

DVD Shopping Bag: Spartacus: Blood and Sand - The Complete First Season by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(September 21, 2010)
Not having Starz made it easy to skip Spartacus: Blood and Sand. I was tempted to watch the show as it was easily available on Netflix. The temptations were great indeed, as each and every week we here at Mania would review the show and not give it a stell

DVD Shopping Bag: Se7en on Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(September 14, 2010)
Raise your hand if you bought David Fincher’s Se7en on DVD when it first came out. Anyone else remember the bitch of that DVD? You had to turn it over! Unfortunately, I still have one or two DVD’s from those days and it is always a treat to have the m

DVD Shopping Bag: Twilight Zone Season 1 Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(September 07, 2010)
It is September and the titles have returned to the DVD Shopping Bag. It was getting bleak there, week after week with nothing new in our favorite genres. That all changes right here right now because for the next few months the studios will be after us wi

DVD Shopping Bag: The Evil Dead Limited Edition Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(August 31, 2010)
Back in December of 2007 I was just starting out here at Mania and got a rather choice assignment. Anchor Bay had sent us a copy of their new Evil Dead Ultimate Edition on 3 Discs (see review). The chance to talk about one of my favorite films and review a

DVD Shopping Bag: Time Bandits on Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(August 24, 2010)
I still remember the first time I saw Terry Gilliam’s Time Bandits (1981). I was visiting my cousins for the weekend and they had this awesome family room in the basement where they had complete control of the TV.

DVD Shopping Bag: Star Wars on Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(August 17, 2010)
I am sure you have heard that this weekend at Star Wars Celebration 5, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announced that the complete Star Wars Saga will come to Blu-ray with a release in the fall of 2011.

DVD Shopping Bag: Alien Anthology on Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(August 10, 2010)
Yet another weak ass week of DVD and Blu-ray releases. I’ll admit that it is kind of nice to look forward to Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and The Expendables without having a huge amount of distractions.

DVD Shopping Bag: Clash of the Titans Deleted Scenes by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(August 03, 2010)
I thought I could ignore it but I couldn’t. After reading through Tim Janson’s review of Clash of the Titans (2010) last week (seen here) I had to pick up Louis Leterrier film. I saw Clash 2010 in the theaters. I was disappointed to a point but in all

DVD Shopping Bag: G.I. Joe The Movie on Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(July 26, 2010)
When G.I. Joe The Movie aired on television I was super excited. I was after all 12 years old and a huge G.I. Joe fan. When I say I had just about everything, I did. My parents even got me a subscription to the G.I. Joe magazine where I first learned about

DVD Shopping Bag: Swamp Thing the Series Vol. 3 by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(July 20, 2010)
This might sound strange but I had high hopes for this final volume of Swamp Thing: the Series. Not any hope that Alec Holland would be returned to his human form, hope that the series would wrap up some of its plots and finally have that grand battle betw

DVD Shopping Bag: Street Hawk: The Complete Series by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(July 13, 2010)
“This is Jesse Mach, an ex-motorcycle cop, injured in the line of duty. Now a police troubleshooter, he's been recruited for a top secret government mission to ride Street Hawk--an all-terrain attack motorcycle designed to fight urban crime, capable of i

DVD Shopping Bag: Roger Corman's Galaxy of Terror Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(July 06, 2010)
The dog days of summer are definitely here as we have yet another week of blah titles. Well that isn’t completely true as Ray Harryhausen’s Jason and the Argonauts will finally be on Blu-ray. I wasn’t fortunate enough to get it but Mania’s own Tim

DVD Shopping Bag: Hot Tub Time Machine by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(June 29, 2010)
Sorry loyal Maniacs if you were looking for a full review on Hot Tub Time Machine the Unrated edition you won’t find it in this week’s column. I tried to get a copy for review however the title is being released through MGM. They are having all kinds o
