August 21, 2007
October is a busy month for DVD releases, as the industry completely shakes off its summer slump and starts its big push for the holiday season. That means an uptick in Christmas titles (like a deluxe edition of The Year Without a Santa Claus, A Flintstones Christmas Carol and... Elf Bowling: The Movie?!?) and a few box sets (The Adventures of Aquaman, the complete 1950s Felix the Cat TV series, and the fifth edition of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection), but there are a few gems hidden here and there. Most notable is the DVD release of the ill-fated American version of Creature Comforts (so you can finally see all seven episodes—oh, and if you were a fan of the show you should listen to this Studio 360 story on the interview process) and the delicious, freaky 1973 French-Czech feature Fantastic Planet.

Comments:
I'm looking forward to another DVD release of the UK-produced CHARLIE AND LOLA and the sports anime SUZUKA. I am curious though about the first DVD release of the PHOENIX anime, but only because I'm an avid fan of Tezuka's original manga.

But ELF BOWLING... yeah... should I preorder that now, or wait?
