Must Have Movie Gifts (page 2 of 4)

There's nothing we love more than curling up on the couch with a good movie; there's no better way to relax. We scoured the new release shelves and came up with a giant list of the must have DVDs and Blu-rays for the upcoming holiday season; we also threw in three essential movie related gifts as well to help turn your life into a movie paradise.

For Students:

Speed Racer: The Complete Classic Series Collection


"Here he comes; here comes Speed Racer!" Say what you will about the dated animation or the infamous fast-talking English dub -- Speed Racer was an animated revolution.

The Complete Classic Series Collection boasts every episode of the iconic cartoon across six discs, loaded with special features!

Futurama: Bender's Game


After the program's heartbreaking cancellation in 2003, fans nationwide petitioned and campaigned for new Futurama episodes. Their cries were heard by Comedy Central, who negotiated four brand new straight-to-DVD feature length episodes; the latest being Futurama: Bender's Game, which also marks the series' first foray into Blu-Ray territory! With the entire original cast returning in full form, join Philip J. Fry, Leela Turanga, and the titular hard drinking robot, Bender, in their latest and most outrageous adventure to date!

The 20th Anniversary Edition comes with an amalgam of fantastic bonus features, from a 2008 Comic-Con reunion panel, "The Oral History of MST3K", and even a miniature figurine of Crow T. Robot himself for authentic, on-the-go riffing! (Michael Bay, we're looking at you)


National Lampoon's Animal House 30th Anniversary Edition Gift Set


"Toga! Toga!" The boys of Delta House are back in action and raunchier than ever with the 30th anniversary of the film that may have single-handedly spawned the "gross-out" genre.

The most brutal band to ever walk the face of the earth is back in action with the second season of the smash hit Adult Swim program, Metalocalypse! Join Dethklok on their journey to make everything metal with this two-disc set, including all 20 episodes from the show's sophomore season. From public relation jealousy to anti-Dethklok terrorist groups, the second season of Metalocalypse is bigger, badder and more brutal than the first!

Pixar's latest epic is an endearing and masterful social commentary that just happens to be adorable, hilarious and an absolute blast for viewers of all ages.

It's not long before this delightful 'bot finds himself entangled in an outrageous adventure that may be the salvation of our once green planet, and a spectacular film that the whole family can enjoy!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
