HomeVideodrome: DVD Releases for Sept. 13th, 2011

Last week I didn’t do a HomeVideodrome post because it went up so late on Big Hollywood, and I had already linked to the Parcbench one in the last entry anyway.  If you didn’t get a chance to check it out, feel free catch up.

This week’s column is a big one, not only are we covering the biggest Blu-ray release of the year (which I’ll beg you from one opinionated fanboy to another to refrain from buying), but also I’m pleased to unveil the premiere episode of the HomeVideodrome podcast, which is currently available over at The Film Thugs Movie Show site.  Go listen to it, and please leave some constructive feedback.  It’s a new show so we’re still working out the kinks.

You can go look at the latest column over at Parcbench or at Big Hollywood, so read, listen, and give feedback.  Thanks!

PS: Sorry there was no Monday Mosh yesterday, buried myself in trying to get the first show out, as well as this column. I’ll have a Belated Mosh up tomorrow.
