It turns an incredible 25 years young this year, so what better way to make fans of the Big Blue happy with an all-new Blu-ray release of Superman: The Animated Series? This award-winning cartoon was filled with great stories from the whole Supes mythology, picking up on some of the superhero's most inspired moments with the Last Son of Krypton being voiced by popular actor Tim Daly. Promotional materials do state that there's some new content available for fans of the show, so that's just one more reason to pick one up if you're so inclined.
If the heroes of the DC Universe are not exactly your thing, then how about crossing the aisle, going even further back in TV time, and picking up a copy of The Incredible Hulk: The Complete Series? This release gives the big green giant of Marvel plenty of screen time, and the set promotional materials promise lots of behind-the-scenes content. For what it's worth, TV's Hulk was a staple of my TV past: though more than a bit formulaic at times, it's an exceedingly well-done superhero drama, boasting solid work by leads Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno.
Audiences have long-embraced the Apocalypse dramas, and there have been some very good ones to come to big and small screens over the years. I don't remember being 'gaga' over the Patrick Swayze entry Steel Dawn: from what I can muster through the cobwebs of this old brain, I remember it being a bit too predictable, though boasting a solid hunky performance by the ladies' favorite. Vestron Video has been going deep into the film catalogue with some of these genre hits from yesterday, but (alas) I've seen no review on this release to tell you if there are any brand-new extras.
As is always the case, there are several more -- including a big studio release that should've done better box office -- but I do like to limit my promotion to a few and then encourage readers to seek out and explore the rest. What can I say? It keeps me on my toes, and it keeps you on your toes. I'll give you the link to Blu-ray.Com's corresponding page, and we'll leave it at that.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
