THIS WEEK'S DVD RELEASES

HULK SMASH DVD this week as this past summer's THE INCREDIBLE HULK starring Edward Norton hit both DVD in a single disc and 3 Disc edition and Blu-Ray -- or should I say GREEN-RAY.

THE STRANGERS, the thriller starring Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman hits both DVD and Blu-Ray as well. I haven't seen the film yet, but liked what I saw during the Comic-con presentation. A sequel is already in the works.

George A. Romero's DIARY OF THE DEAD continues his reign as the zombie movie king on both DVD and Blu-Ray.

Also out is Volume 6 of Warner Bros. fabulous LOONEY TUNES: GOLDEN/SPOTLIGHT COLLECTIONS, which they have announced is the last of that particular series, but not the end of Looney Tunes releases (thank goodness). The GOLDEN COLLECTION is a full set and the SPOTLIGHT COLLECTION is a slimmed down selection of the shorts from the other set.

Warner Bros. also has Volume 4 in their GANGSTERS box set series (which I believe started out with Volume 1 titled as "TOUGH GUYS").

James Bond makes a splash on DVD as CASINO ROYALE, both the 1967 spoof and the 2006 Daniel Craig film, are released in 2 Disc special editions. This week also see the release of the first wave of classic Bond titles on Blu-Ray with DR. NO, FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE, THUNDERBALL, LIVE AND LET DIE, FOR YOUR EYES ONLY and DIE ANOTHER DAY being released both separately and in Box sets. Very exciting indeed.

KISS OF THE SPIDER-WOMAN, which has been available for a while now as an Amazon.com exclusive is released to retailers on both DVD and Blu-Ray, and SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET streets on Blu-Ray as does a collector's edition of the 2007 Rob Zombie HALLOWEEN remake.

If that wasn't enough, there is also plenty of TV on DVD as well with DYNASTY Season 3, Volume 2, THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE Season 2, ACCORDING TO JIM Season 1, THE L WORD Season 5 and FAMILY GUY Volume 6 as well as updated full series box sets of FAMILY GUY.

Cashing in on this week's release of THE INCREDIBLE HULK , Universal is releasing both the final season (5) of the Bill Bixby/Lou Ferigno TV series as well as a Complete series box set collection.

And to top it off, Universal also has a Complete series of the 1980s KNIGHT RIDER series. All 5 seasons in a collector's box which sports a killer light and sound display with the red light from the hood of K.I.T.T. I'd buy this just for the packaging (the show really doesn't hold up all that well though).
