The Crap You Should Buy

Watchmen Goodies

I probably don’t need to tell you to buy a ticket to see Watchmen this week (preferably in IMAX), but there are plenty of Watchmen-related goodies coming to your local DVD/Music store this week also!

Watchmen: The Complete Motion ComicsWatchmen: The Complete Motion Comic (Blu-Ray and DVD)
Pretty much exactly how it sounds.  This fantastic series premiered online last summer, and is the full telling of the original Watchmen graphic novel, given a full voice cast, music, animation, and featuring the amazing original art!  If you get pissed off because the movie changed a whole bunch of stuff from the book, this one’s for you!  And it comes with a free ticket to see Watchmen in theaters!  Purchase from our Amazon link below!

Watchmen Score and SoundtrackWatchmen Score & Soundtrack (CD)
Early word is that the score to the movie, by Tyler Bates, is excellent.  And the soundtrack contains a new song from My Chemical Romance, and some great classic tracks!  Purchase from our Amazon link below!

DVD/Blu-Ray

Wonder Woman Blu-RayWonder Woman Blu-Ray
A pretty darn great animated movie starring DC’s classic superhero!  Check out my review for more info, and purchase using the Amazon link below!

Video Games

Sonic and the Black KnightSonic and the Black Knight (Nintendo Wii)
Yes, that’s Sonic the Hedgehog with a sword.  No, I’m not sure why he has one.  Probably to kick some Black Knight @$$!  This is a sequel to the Sonic and the Secret Rings Wii game that everyone loved from a couple of years ago.  Fingers crossed that this is the great Sonic game we’ve all been hoping for!
