Box sets and standalone DVDs and Blu-rays are always critical to examine each year when it comes to year-ender lists. That is because they really are their own categories. They are not the only important categories to examine, though, when developing year-ender lists.
One of the most under appreciated lists that every critic should consider is the list of the year’s top new DVD and Blu-ray re-issues. This critic’s list is chock full of interesting titles this year, such as the Blu-ray re-issue of the classic action series MacGuyver‘s debut season, Saved By The Bell and even the classic biopic The Glenn Miller Story. Yes, this critic even included a biopic in the list, despite not exactly being a fan of the genre.
The top spot on this year’s list goes easily to none other than Saved By The Bell: The Complete Series. The original series has been released previously, however, never to the extent that it was presented in this new box set. Add in solid pricing and extensive bonus material, and fans of the classic NBC series get a top notch set.
The second spot on this year’s list goes to the Blu-ray re-issue of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. This so-campy-that-it’s-great modern classic is incredible in its story, acting and special effects. The addition of its bonus material makes it an even greater investment for movie buffs.
Third Place in this year’s list of top new DVD & BD Re-Issues goes to the re-issue of MGM’s Get Shorty. The spoof of Hollywood’s many mob movies and Hollywood insider flicks couples with enjoyable bonus content and an affordable price point for a presentation that every movie buff will enjoy.
Also featured in this year’s list are re-issues of Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, Dragnet, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, City Slickers and The Wasp Woman just to name a handful of titles. The list’s top 10 titles are the best of the year, while the five that follow are honorable mention titles. Without any further ado, here for your consideration is Phil’s Picks 2018 Top 10 New DVD/BD re-issues.
