Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Epic Series DVD Review

Shortly before the recent revival series of Battlestar Galactica began, Universal released this super DELUXE set of the original 1978-79 series. How deluxe is it? Let's take a look...

NOTE: The HD version features the Multimedia Chronicles 3D opening titles in full 720p for the first time! Previously, they were upconverted 480i like the rest of the video. thought it was about time I upgraded THAT at least, even if I can't shoot everything in HD just quite yet.

Blade Runner - Collector's Edition Briefcase Set Review

It's been a long time coming (both this review and, originally, this set). So let's see what exactly is in the coveted Blade Runner Collector's Edition Briefcase set!

I Am Legend - Ultimate Collector's Edition Boxed Set Review

Let's crack this sucker open and see what goodies are inside, shall we?

To be honest, I was a bit disappointed with the actual disc contents, since the 3rd disc is just a digital copy. There is a new commentary, though, and lots of featurettes, so maybe I'm just a spoiled brat when it comes to these Collector's Sets and expect every disc to be brimming over with extras...

Definitely some cool swag to be found inside. Fans of the movie might want to check this one out!

True Eliteness, Thundering Balls of Death, Canard Homme, Legendary Legend

The latest additions to our DVD and Blu-ray collections, and my personal tribute to the recent passing of one of my favorite actors. Plus I discovered something interesting abut my subscriber numbers the other day...

DVDs and Blu-rays discussed in this edition -

James Bond - Thunderball Steelbook (Blu-ray)
James Bond - Die Another Day Steelbook (Blu-ray)
Duckman - Season 3 and 4 (DVD)
I Am Legend - Ultimate Collector's Edition (Blu-ray)

Sony Fanboy

Final of 3 videos addressing some ridiculous comments I've had recently about supposedly being a Blu-ray Elitist Snob and a Sony Fanboy.

As far back as the first time I ever uttered the name of "Sony" many people have called me a Sony Fanboy. Well, if that was truly the case, then surely every single piece of major electronics and related accessories in my home would be made by Sony, right? Let's take a look and find out just how much of an alleged Sony Fanboy I REALLY am...

Oh, you meant in terms of GAMING? Well, that's completely different. NOT. Let me paint a picture of just how platform/game company loyal I'm NOT.

Blu-ray Elitist

Second of 3 videos addressing some ridiculous comments I've had recently about supposedly being a Blu-ray Elitist Snob.

Let's dig a little deeper and see just how far my video obsession goes. It neither begins nor ends with Blu-ray. Blu-ray is just the latest of the many, many formats I've collected over the years. Let's take a quick look and shed a little light on the subject...

Elitist Fanboy Snob

First of 3 videos addressing some ridiculous comments I've had over the past few months accusing me of being an elitist fanboy.

Blu-ray Elitist? Sony Fanboy? SNOB?


Grab a jar of Grey Poupon and join me as I reveal the shocking, uncensored TRUTH behind my alleged elitism...

Zaranyzerak Plays Dead Space - Part 11 HD

Chapter 4 - Part 2

Continuing our mission to re-activate the Asteroid Defense System (ADS)...

Annetta and I discover the pros and cons of gravity wells, we see a Slasher playing Tiptoe Through the Tulips, I make short work of yet another Brute, I quickly realize it might be time for another suit upgrade due to lack of inventory space, and we head up to the final area of the level only to get good and creeped out.

Zaranyzerak Plays Dead Space - Part 10 HD

Chapter 4 - Part 1

Figured out a better way to edit these that takes (more or less) full advantage of YouTube's HD. Hope you all enjoy the improved picture quality!

Okay, this time around we head up to the Bridge, Annetta gets even more scared than when I Woohooed her last time, and I try a few tricks with a Brute. Not all of which seem to WORK, mind you, but I'm sure you'll enjoy them anyway.

New DVDs and Blu-rays, a mini-rant, and some bad news...

Don't worry, Part 10 of Dead Space is coming (and the picture quality will be better than ever! I figured out a MUCH better way to edit them...). Just wanted to sneak this little DVD and Blu-ray update into the middle...

Blu-ray movies aren't expensive. And I prove it.

Blu-ray isn't going to fail. And I prove it.

I got some new DVDs and Blu-rays over the holiday. And I prove it.

And I have some very bad news for BCI fans.


Titles discussed in this edition:

The Untouchables (Blu-ray)
Sweeney Todd (Blu-ray)
Prince Valiant - The Complete Series Volume 1 (DVD)
Terminator - The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 1 (Blu-ray)
Hot Fuzz 3-disc Special Edition (DVD)

Zaranyzerak Plays Dead Space - Part 8

Chapter 3 - Part 2

This time around, we deal with the most difficult decontamination sequence ever, head into Zero-G to try and get the Centrifuge working, and have a little too much fun with a pus-filled tentacle.

Zaranyzerak Plays Dead Space - Part 7

Chapter 3 - Part 1

After nearly two months of being inundated with requests for more, here it is! Part 7 of my in-depth Dead Space gameplay review/walkthrough!

This time around we head deep into the BOWELS of the Ishimura to refuel the engines before we crash into the planet below...

Taking the Red Pill in a Paranormal Fire Breathing Lizard's Den with a Blue Glowing Bug

The first of my post-Christmas DVD and Blu-ray updates! I say the first because, well, for us Christmas won't be over until mid-January. Explained in the vid. Enjoy!

Christmas DVD Extravaganza!

Well, I wasn't going to post this because of the recent stink with my Blackstar video, but what the hell. I put too much work into this one to just let it slide.

Here's my EPIC length Christmas Special, in which I share with you some of my all time favorite Christmas DVDs! Consider it my gift to all you viewers out there, who are all made out of pure awesome.

I'll save it as a surprise which ones they are (and before you go trying to sneak a peek, no I didn't list them in the tags!). Enjoy! And I hope you all have yourselves a happy holiday!
