Zetman-CompleteSeries-BD

It’s not often that a superhero is created by a super-villain, but that’s the case with Japanese superhero series Zetman. The series revolves around two boys – Kouga, born into a wealthy family and in line to inherit his family’s power and fortune, and Jin, poor but living a happy life with his grandfather until tragedy strikes. Both boys seek the real meaning of justice and what it means to be a hero.

Zetman is a gritty, viceral, action-filled 13-episode series that explores what it means to be human. VIZ Media will release Zetman: The complete Series on Blu-Ray and DVD in North America on November 5th. For further details, check out the press release after the jump.

Royals

I’m not sure why it is, but Americans seem to have a fascination with the British Royal Family. Perhaps that’s way BBC Home entertainment is releasing a special box set, The Royal Collection. Composed of four documentaries – The Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II (a behind-the-scenes look at the Queen’s 1953 Coronation), King George and Queen Mary: The Royals Who Rescued the Monarchy (a two-part portrait of Elizabeth II’s grandparents, King George V and Queen Mary), Queen Victoria’s Children (a three-part series exploring the reign of Victoria through her personal relationships with her husband and her nine children) and How To Be a Prince (a program centered on Prince William from 2003) – and a replica of a booklet for Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation, featuring original photography from the ceremony, The Royal Collection will be released on May 21st.

rise-of-the-guardians-900x1024

Rise of the Guardians was the best animated feature of 2012 – no matter what the Academy might have thought. It’s smart enough for older kids-at-heart and filled with lots of action and cool stuff to engage younger viewers. That it didn’t even get an Oscar® nomination is sad, but that won’t matter to most of its audience – and the Spring Gift Pack DVD release also features some cool video features, a nifty toy and some cool DIY stuff in its DVD-ROM content.

wreck-it-ralph-dvd-cover-04

Ralph is the destructive bad guy in an 8-bit arcade game that’s celebrating its 30th Anniversary. The problem is that he’s not happy with his role. Wreck-It Ralph is the story of his search for something better – and possibly the best video game movie ever. The DVD release is lacking in extras (there are none), but the film is worthy of repeated viewing.

skyfall-2012

Skyfall is one of the best Bonds and part of the reason is that not only does Daniel Craig’s Bond continue to reveal new sides to his personality and resources; not only is he given one of the best Bond villains ever in Javier Bardem’s Raoul Silva, but Judi Dench just kills it as M – giving her every bit of the toughness and resiliency that we always expected of her, and an equally unexpected tenderness that we might not have.

The film holds up well on DVD, even on the small screen it’s a terrific experience, but there are barely fifteen minutes of features – most dealing with technical stuff but not in a superficial way.
