Clueless is a timeless classic that even 25+ years later is still relevant today as it was then even when styles and lingo changes. The movie features some great performances especially from Silverstone.
The “Robot Chicken”: Christmas Specials collection is geared more toward casual fans as, from what I can tell, everything on this disc was previously released in some fashion in the season sets, features included. The DVD itself has OK audio and video while the commentaries are at least entertaining.
“Robot Chicken”: Season 6 continues to be a successful and very funny series for Adult Swim. The comedy is often gold and Seth Green and company often cross the line offending multiple people and cultures with off-color humor. The Blu-ray released by Warner Brothers once again has some great bonus content while the audio/video transfers weren’t great but still adequate considering the subject.
The “Robot Chicken: DC Comics Special” is just as funny as the show itself and for fan of DC Comics, it’s a hoot to watch. While not all the jokes land, the majority do and alongside some decent talent lending their voices, even if a few are unrecognizable (like Alfred Molina). The Blu-ray released by Warner Home Video/Adult Swim offers good audio/video transfers and a good selection of special features.
Clueless is a timeless classic that even 17 years later is still relevant today as it was then even when styles and lingo changes. The movie features some great performances especially from Silverstone who probably deserved more award recognition than she got. As for this Blu-ray, if offers up the same features as the 10-year anniversary DVD and some decent video and audio upgrades.
Road Trip is a fun movie that unfortunately doesn’t get mentioned with the likes of American Pie or even Van Wilder and indeed it’s not as good as either one yet still provides plenty of laughs and gross-out humor to satisfy fans. The cast shares some great comedic energy and having Amy Smart in the movie doesn’t exactly hurt things either.
Paramount Home Entertainment has announced the date and released artwork for the road comedy, Road Trip starring Breckin Meyer, Seann William Scott, Amy Smart and Tom Green. This is the latest Best Buy exclusive with Paramount and will be available on May 1st (the Best Buy site says 5/15, however) and will include some features.

Kate & Leopold is a fun romantic comedy where one should ignore the inconsistencies that often come with time travel. Even so, the chemistry between Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman is good enough to make this a memorable and worthwhile film to see. The Blu-ray offers up some OK features, especially Mangold’s commentary, the video isn’t great but acceptable and the audio is good.
“Robot Chicken” is easily one of the funniest shows on television and a personal favorite of mine. This fifth season, while not the strongest in its run, has some funny bits and like before, a great collection of guest voice talents. Seth Green and company also know how to package a home video release with plenty of features to justify the price given each episode is only 11-12 minutes long.
