This Week In Geek (26/09/2011)

Monday 26th

Thor (DVD/Blu Ray)

- Kenneth Brannaghan’s take on everyone’s favourite Norse God hits Blu Ray and DVD today. If you missed this in the cinema this is your chance to make amends for that huge mistake.

Cannibal Holocaust: Ruggero Deodato's New Edit (Limited Edition) (Blu-ray)

- One of the banned ‘Video Nasties’ of the 1980s, Cannibal Holocaust remains one of the cult horror films of its generation. This Blu Ray release apparently shows the film faithful to the director’s original vision, and is probably best left alone if you’re of a nervous disposition.

Big Bang Theory season 4 (DVD)

- The latest season of the hit US comedy which put the chic in geek goes on sale today, with 24 episodes of hyper neurotic geniuses mocking one another spread across 4 discs.

Wednesday 28th

Latest DC reboot titles (Comics)

This week’s batch of new DC releases see The Flash, Superman and the Dark Justice League make their comic ‘debuts’

Curse of the Wendigo trade paperback (Comics)

- The Walking Dead’s Charlie Adlard takes a break from zombies to draw another mythological beast in this collection from Dynamite.

Ghostbusters #1 (Comics)

- Ray, Peter, Egon and Winston return in this all new series from IDW. Who are you going to call? You’ll have to read it and find out!

Fades (TV)

- Catch episode 2 of this new supernatural drama on BBC3 at 10pm. If you missed episode 1 it is currently on the BBC iPlayer.

Friday 30th

Shark Night (Cinema)

- Sexy teens being eaten by a variety of sharks while swimming in a lake. Utterly ridiculous and probably entertaining, this B movie horror is showing in both 3D and 2D.

Red State (Cinema)

- Kevin Smith’s latest offering, this dark horror is a million miles away from Clerks and Mallrats. Early reviews have been encouraging.

ICO & Shadow Of The Colossus HD Collection (Video Game)

- This PS3 exclusive packages the first two of a series which concludes with The Last Guardian early next year. Originally released on the PS2, the HD remake merely adds another layer of gloss to two games that remain some of the best ever released. An essential purchase.
