Dexter: The Complete Series Collection Exclusive Gift Set

with the proliferation of digital downloads, it is hard to imagine why would anyone need to buy another physical media for your entertainment needs (corruption debatable, but anyway that’s beside the point). while this might holds true, we suspect your penchant for digital copies might be swayed if you have an awesome collection comprising of all 8 seasons of Dexter (yes, it has been that long) on Blu-ray, an exclusive Art of Dexter book, plus a killer bonus disc offering over 3 hours of special features including behind-the-scenes cast interviews, featurettes and promos – all packed into one limited edition collectible bust of a white humanoid. so do yourself a favor and save yourself some bandwidth and get the Dexter: The Complete Series Collection Exclusive Gift Set. we are pretty sure this could be the first time you will be proud to be displaying your Blu-ray collection in the open and not stash inside the cabinet (oh, it can fit the cabinet anyway, can it?). lovely stuff.

Star Trek Into Darkness Starfleet Phaser Gift Set

you could probably get a replica of the iconic Starfleet phaser out in the market, but why should you do that when you could own a piece of the Star Trek Into Darkness in Blu-ray 3D to relive the moments and also get to bag a 1:1 scale replica of the Starfleet phaser, complete with a gloss black display stand and a brass plague? and this Starfleet phaser ain’t no cheap replica. it was created by Quantum Mechanix Inc. as a movie accurate replica and features a working manual spinner with locking mechanism to position the barrel for either “stun” or “kill” mode. of course, it won’t do that in real life, but it just makes it fun that fans can actually mess around with the spinner. we would say this would make a perfect addition to any trekkies’ Star Trek altar or shrine. plus, you get a copy of the 132 minutes long movie in all its clarity and immersive that a Blu-ray 3D film has to offer. oh? we mention that already, didn’t we?

THE FLYING MAN – A Superhero Short Film

we don’t usually post shorts or trailers here as we have already directed them to our Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr page instead, but this particular sci-fi superhero short film by Canada-based director Marcus Alqueres is not to be missed. Marcus is a visual effect person and among his portfolio include A-list feature projects such as 300, Source Code, Rise of The Planet of The Apes, and The Adventures of Tintin. anyway, THE FLYING MAN is a short flick as envisioned by Marcus Alqueres that depicts a superhero as a vigilante and the ensuing impact and ethical debate with regards to his acts. can justice be served without judgement? or what he did is no better than the criminals that he has persecuted without judgement? you decide and to do that, you have to catch this very intriguing piece. it is definitely well worth the watch. if you like District 9, Chronicle and Superman, then expect this to be mashed up of the three (cinematography-wise, that is). awesome is what i can only used to describe this short. check it out in the embedded video below.

The Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector’s Edition

remember back in October last year, we did mention that there might be a The Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector’s Edition coming your way in 2013? well, we are half way through 2013 already and finally, we have official words from Warner Bros about its availability plus some details; this 6-disc collectible will be reaching the stores on September 24. along with the three movies from the trilogy, you can expect to find copies of The Dark Knight Special Features, The Dark Knight Rises Special Features (Batman Begins Feature film and Special Features comes as one disc), a Bonus Disc containing never-before-seen footage, insights to the creation of the franchise, exclusive interviews and a chat with Christopher Nolan and Richard Donner.

The Walking Dead Season 3 Blu-ray

the season three of the The Walking Dead is still on going, but that doesn’t stop AMC from going ahead and collaborate with action figures maker, McFarlane to come up with this special Blu-ray case for the imminent Season Three collection. this super cool case features a replica of the Governor’s aquarium (aka the “TV”) with five plastic decapitated living dead’s noggins (in various states of decay, no less) that are each attached to a spring so that they appears to bobble like they are floating in the water. speaking of water, that ingredient isn’t supplied, so in order for you to enjoy the dead head “TV”, you will need to add your own. sounds totally rational to us, cos’ we are quite sure no one is too thrill to be shipping murky water other than beverages. we have seen our fair shares of collectible Blu-ray/DVD cases but this is one sits right on top ‘wow’ chart and definitely one that begs to be on the shelf and not in the drawer. we think this one could be a winner. you know why? we are not fans of the living dead but we kind of want one for keepsake. maybe, we might just watch the whole of the Season Three that will come with it. just might. you can catch the MTV Geek video of Todd McFarlane introducing the The Walking Dead Season 3 Blu-ray case at the Toy Fair below.

no, the Tarantino XX 8-Film Collection Blu-ray isn’t a Tarantino adult film (it has one less ‘X’, you see?). the ‘XX’ there points to the first 20 years that this redefining director has been in the business and as the name implies, the collection includes eight flicks personally selected by Quentin Tarantino that helped define his early success. the films chosen are what we considered as cult favorites spanning from 1990s right through to the first decade of 2000 Continue reading Tarantino XX 8-Film Collection Blu-ray

at some point in our lives, we all have been bitten by the thrown back bug. apart from the physical stuff that brings back those nostalgic memories, music is another powerful media that stirs up the flash backs and perhaps, reminds us of those high times we had (you know, baggy pants, loud colors and boombox over our shoulders. those kind of stuff). 80s was arguably the golden era of popular music culture and that said, we thought Brit Peter Gabriel, a singer/songwriter and former vocalist of progressive rock band Genesis, is perhaps the best remembered and representative musician of that era Continue reading Peter Gabriel So (Remastered 2012)

Iron Man 3 Official Movie Trailer

May 3, 2013 is still quite a while to go but still, we are enjoying being teased by the new official trailer of possibly, the biggest movie event of the year for 2013, Iron Man 3. from the description as well as the trailer, this third Iron Man flick looks to be a little complicated and an emotional one. well, if that’s the case, then we are not sure if we would enjoy peering into the softer side of this metal-suited hero with literally an iron heart (or was it an electronic heart?). so what do you think? anyway, here’s quote of the movie synopsis taken from iTunes trailers site: Continue reading Iron Man 3 Official Movie Trailer
