New additions to the media collection in September 2021

September 2021 was another great month for limited editions of movies and other additions that were worth their place on the collector’s shelves.

While it all went downhill from the Clone Wars George Lucas era, this vehicle still beats the little green empty shell of The Mandalorian.

I got this Super Mario set from my wife, so I’ll have enough paper for review notes and space for putting some food in during theme park visits.

An obvious choice for a tin can’s use: keeping Gameboy titles inside.

Heroes don’t have to be from Marvel or DC, as people can do some amazing things everyday, too, which can be read about in this McDonalds Happy Meal special book.

It’s definitely not a good idea to have random plush toys when buying the aforementioned Happy Meal, but that’s exactly what the company has done with these, and with the first purchase, the problem of this method already shows.

Time for some more Halloween decorations!

Four Disneyland-inspired movies for the price of one was a no-brainer, although I already had Haunted Mansion on BD. Still, it will be interesting to see how family-friendly Tower of Terror is.

I think I only watched these comedy movies (originally titled as Eskimo Limon) in parts, and while BDs would have been nice, just paying 20 EUR for 8 flicks is definitely a good deal.

And now for something completely different: 24 short movies with a Christmas theme could be a good advent calender as a new tradition.

Eureka dug up more martial arts action with the following two movies that had jumping ghosts and vampires in them, something that is so different that it’s interesting to read about the cultural background and folklore they’re based on. They haven’t aged that well with the Asian comedy parts at times, though.

Mixing Western and martial arts action, this movie was rather special with the limited edition that includes an exclusive extended cut, but it also felt too long, so one might enjoy this more in a shorter version.

Last but not least, the unique TV show LEXX was a very unusual experience during my school days, but of course I didn’t know that the German version was heavily censored back then. So I’m looking forward to watch the whole thing uncut soon.

Just as the month before, September 2021 hadn’t so many additions, but it was nice to have the time to watch a few of them and write about them. And as could be seen with the limited editions, physical media are still the way to go if one wants to have posters and booklets as well as alternative covers, something that no streaming service can provide.
