San Diego Comic Con has once again come and gone, and hopefully your convention hangover is gone as well.  If you attended the Con and barely remember it (blame it on the jam-packed schedule or was it the numerous after parties?) or like many of us you couldn’t go, we’re here to deliver the news that caught our eye.  For the most part, there wasn’t one major news story, not to downplay any of the announcements, but SDCC 2011 was more about catching up with old friends (like Buffy’s Sarah Michelle Gellar in the CW’s Ringer) and as usual, seeing what’s coming up in 2012.

7.26.2011: What To Watch – DVD/Blu-ray Releases

Posted in DVD on 07/26/2011 by sharonwong

A movie that was more of a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ in theaters is this week’s one and only DVD/Blu-ray release.  Worth a watch?  You’ll just have to see for yourself.

Dylan Dog: Dead of Night (2011) on DVD and Blu-ray.  Starring Brandon Routh (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), Sam Huntington (TV’s Being Human), Anita Briem (Journey to the Center of the Earth [2008]), Peter Stormare (The Divide) and Taye Diggs (TV’s Private Practice).  Written by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer (both of Conan the Barbarian [2011]).  Directed by Kevin Munroe (TMNT).
