Didn't get a release on Blu-Ray in Australia!?!?!? WTF! It's been advertised for weeks and suddenly gets pulled? WHY! DAMN YOU WHY!?

Apparently now all you have to do is lick your lips and laugh here and there to be the Joker (how artsy). You don't have to joke or smile or have any characteristics of the actual character. I miss you Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, and Mark Hammil.

...if you go back to the original inspiration for the Joker (The Man Who Laughs) there's no similarity. The Joker should go back to being creepy unpredictable and not just "crazy" and annoying.

.... you should really be psychologically evaluated for possible antisocial personality disorder. As for the DVD offerings this week, pretty much absolute garbage except for the delightfully lo-budget Man from U.N.C.L.E. If I'm not mistaken, I saw a young Shatner in one of the promos. Between him and Robert Vaughn, they could turn 15 seconds of dialogue into a 5-minute pause-fest.

i noticed here in canada that the hulk blu-ray got pushed to oct 24th, while the dvd version is out today. so maybe australia just has a similar delay.

I think I paid $19 each when they both came out off of Amazon? $5 is a steal. good stuff.

Still really must have " The Man From U.N.C.L.E. It's something I've wanted in my collection for a long time ( one of those 60's shows like " The Wild Wil;d West ". It's 5 seaons for $139.00 on Amazon still kind of spendy but I'll find a way some how! Was a big fan when I was a kid and they never show this anymore!

I have had it ever since it came out from Time-Life and it is FAN-TASTIC. The extra features and interviews are worth the price of admission and the show still stands up especially season one and two. I'm even (crazy, I know) reviewing EVERY SINGLE EPISODE, one a day, on my blog josephdickerson.com. Heaven help me when I get around to the Sonny and Cher episode...

It does indeed suck but I can tell you that the U.S. Incredible Hulk blu-ray is region free so try importing it like me. Actually, most blu-rays are coming out region free these days. To check which blu-ray are safe to import go to this website: www.blu-raymoviescheap. com and get on their mailing list. All the titles are linked to Amazon if you'd like to buy them or if you don't have a credit card just use as a guide and check eBay.

Thanks Herc! Your posts are always so informative. What a guy. Also, great job with the exclamation points. Since everything has them, I assume everything is equally important!

hey i'm just waiting for the price to come down from the 50.00 on season 1 so there's no way i'd buy the whole thing. (kinda need to eat and pay my bills, what can i say?) thanks for the Buffy tip, crth! (i already have season one and most of season two-some goofy place was selling individual discs for like two or 3 bucks a pop) so i may get season 3-4.

Amazon has a listing for it, but where is it? It's been listed for what, a year and still NOT ONE WORD on when it's going to, OR IF! it will be EVER released on DVD. So Herc, if you could use your extraordinary powers to find out what's the hold up on getting TALES OF THE GOLD MONKEY released on DVD. I'd appreciate it!
