DVD and Blu-ray releases for Tuesday, December 28, 2010

28 December 2010 10:29 AM, PST | | See recent QuietEarth news »

Got a few decent DVD and Blu-ray releases out this week, so let's get to it. First up is the fourth installment in the uneven (yet very popular) Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: Afterlife. This release comes at is in a variety of ways. On DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D which only works on 3D televisions so buyer beware.

Also out this week is FX network's hilarious, irreverant and just plain vulgar Archer: Season 1. Looks like it's only out on DVD, but if you haven't seen Adam Reed, Matt Thompson's show yet I highly recommend forgoing the HD for the laughs.

Form What I'm hearing, The American is not the Bourne George Clooney. In fact, word from friends who've seen the flick is that it's acutally a very slow and deliberate film worth checking out. So I will be.

Manga Entertainment UK to release Kamui Gaiden and Summer Wars on DVD and Blu-ray Disc [Update]

5 January 2010 5:17 AM, PST | Affenheimtheater | See recent Affenheimtheater news »

Manga Entertainment UK has made some very interesting announcement via the label’s official Twitter account. In the first place, Yoichi Sai’s Kamui Gaiden is supposed to be released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in the UK this Summer. The live-action adaptation of the anime classic Ninpu Kamui Gaiden opened in Japan in September 2009 and will be released there on DVD and Blu-ray Disc (without English subtitles of course) in February.

And just a few hours ago, it was also announced that Mamoru Hosoda and Satoko Okudera’s hit anime Summer Wars will be released in September in the UK on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, just six month after the subtitle-less Japanese DVD and Blu-ray Disc release from Vap.

Talking about Mamoru Hosoda and Satoko Okudera, I also asked @MangaUK about the often announced and delayed Blu-ray Disc of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time but I didn’t receive an answer yet… »
