Summer Geek DVD\Blu-ray Release Schedule

Writer: Greek Geek

Summer officially begins tomorrow June 21st. The first day of the summer season aka the Summer Solstice (sounds like a pornstar name, right?) is the day of the year when the Sun is farthest north. Well, considering I have been running my air conditioner practically non-stop since Memorial Day, I'd say ole Sol made it north a little sooner than expected. So whichever astronomy asshat determined the first day of this summer should be paying my f**king electrical bill for the rest of the season.

I digress. Since summer "officially" begins tomorrow, I thought it would be a good idea to lay out the top geek home video (DVD/Blu-ray) releases for the season.

So here goes (Non-American readers as always: month first, date second):


The Adjustment Bureau
Louie: Season One
Mega Python vs. Gatoroid aka Tiffany vs. Debbie Gibson (You think I am joking? Nope.)


The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy (Extended Edition) (Blu-ray)
Sucker Punch
Warehouse 13: Season 2
Michael Flatley Returns as Lord of the Dance
The Last Starfighter (Blu-ray)


Hobo with a Shotgun


Robot Chicken: Star Wars III
Brazil (Blu-ray)


Doctor Who: Season Six Part 1
Torchwood: The Complete Original UK Series


Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe
Dylan Dog: Dead of Night (It's a movie starring Agent Shaw from "Chuck", I am trying to illicit a response here people...)
Supernatural: The Anime Series (look I don't watch the regular series, but the last thing I want to do is to omit then and then be flayed at the stake by you Wincest fanfic writers)


Mystery Science Theater 3000 vs. Gamera

Conan the Destroyer (Blu-ray) (I bet this crapfest will be better than the 2011 remake)
