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

DVD Shopping Bag: Death Race 2000 Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(June 22, 2010)
This week the DVD Shopping Bag is a little light. There aren’t a ton of releases hitting the shelves but thankfully Shout! Factory is releasing a cult classic on Blu-ray. Death Race 2000 (1975) was produced by Roger Corman and directed by Paul Bartel.

DVD Shopping Bag: Book of Eli Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(June 15, 2010)

DVD Shopping Bag: The A-Team: The Complete Series by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(June 08, 2010)
In 1983, immediately after the Super Bowl, our lives were changed forever. The A-Team made its debut and young boys across America had a new set of heroes to look up to. Hannibal Smith (George Peppard), B.A. Baracus (Mr. T), Face (Dirk Benedict) and Murdoc

DVD Shopping Bag: Wolfman Unrated Director’s Cut Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(June 01, 2010)
The Wolfman arrives today on Blu-ray and DVD. Normally I would have skipped this title altogether but two words stopped me, Director’s Cut. I’ve been in the business long enough to know that this used to mean something special.

DVD Shopping Bag: Spartacus Blood and Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(May 25, 2010)
Last week the DVD Shopping Bag gave you an early look at John Hillcoat’s The Road (see column). This past week I checked out Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood. Upon seeing what I thought was an incomplete film I decided to watch Scott’s Gladiator (2000) agai

DVD Shopping Bag: The Road Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(May 18, 2010)
I would like a show of hands (or at least a comment) for each of you that actually saw The Road. Adapted from the original novel by Cormac McCarthy and directed by John Hillcoat it hits DVD and Blu-ray next week.

DVD Shopping Bag: The BBC’s Survivors by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(May 11, 2010)
As you know or have probably already read Rob Vaux’s TV Wasteland column that another season of TV is ending. There will of course be True Blood and a few others but TV pretty much shuts down for the summer.

DVD Shopping Bag: Thundarr the Barbarian by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(May 04, 2010)
No, Thundarr the Barbarian is not coming out on DVD this week. I say that with heavy heart. However one episode and an incredible documentary about the show are available for the first time on DVD. Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1980s, Vol. 1 is the big tease

DVD Shopping Bag: Avatar Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(April 27, 2010)
After all the hype, the awards and not winning the big award Avatar has finally come to Blu-ray and DVD. There has been so much hoopla about this film it is difficult to know where to begin. I could say the highest grossing film of all time is just Dances

DVD Shopping Bag: Avatar No, Dune Yes by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(April 20, 2010)
Due to either the stupidity of Fox or the evil genius of James Cameron, Avatar on Blu-ray wasn’t made available to Mania at press time. Instead we have to pick it up on release day just like all of you. This is shame really. Avatar has already made its m

DVD Shopping Bag: A Nightmare on Elm Street Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(April 13, 2010)
Do you remember when Freddy met Dokken*? I don’t either. There is probably a lot we don’t remember about the Nightmare on Elm Street saga. After all there were seven movies and a TV series to blur our memories. If you are a looking for a “Best of”
