The Herculoids: The Complete Series (1967)
"When you're ten years old, this is the coolest damn thing ever." More...
13 Assassins (2010)
"It would be easy to pass 13 Assassins off as Miike's attempt to play at Kurosawa - some of the scenes have a resonance that suggests Seven Samurai - but that would be lazy indeed.

Frankenstein Jr. and The Impossibles (1966)
"Frankenstein Jr. is a giant robot, very

mode, who is built and controlled by two-fisted
boy scientist, Buzz Conroy. In a futuristic Civic City, they take on
more giant-sized menaces controlled by villains with such names as
Dr. Shock, Mr. Menace, Dr. Hook (but no Medicine Show) and Baron Von
Ghoul. Conveniently, Buzz always seemed to build into Frankie exactly the gadgets required to defeat these monsters." More...
Forbidden World (1982)
one of the extras on this disc, Makeup Supervisor John Carl Buechler
reminisces about one of his techs asking him, "Is this just a sleazy Alien rip-off?" to which Buechler replied, "Yeah, but it's going to be the best sleazy Alien rip-off."

Batman: Under The Red Hood Two-Disc Special Edition (2010)
"Probably one of the most irksome things about modern comics concerns death. Firstly, the subject was largely verboten
in the field for decades, but most modern four-color fantasies seem to
have become litanies of murder, so much so that the DC universe should
be severely under-populated by this point." More...
