It also has pretty cool artwork for the cover.

Ichi the Killer (SE) - May 29

There are few things I can't handle in this world. One of them is earthworms (don't ask) and another is seeing a woman's nip nips get sliced off. Somebody told me that if I thought that was bad, wait until I see AUDITION. Then I saw it and well, I found it erotic (don't ask). The new ICHI collector's edition will come in some kind of "blood bag" (see below).

Meatballs (SE) - June 5

Look at that; a special edition without one of those goofy subtitled "Extra Meatbally Edition lol?!?!111" Throw yourself into a razor blade. I remember seeing MEATBALLS as a kid but you could put a gun to my head and I couldn't tell you one scene from it. Weren't they trying to hide an alien or some shit? Or was that MEATBALLS 3?

Silver Spoons (S1) - June 19

How many of you wanted that little train in your house? I had the second best thing, living in a trailer. It wasn't the same but I had a great imagination. This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the show and in June, you'll be able to show me that smile again (I know, wrong theme song). The DVD will have 22 Episodes on three discs, check out the low res artwork below. During its run, the show had guest stars that included Sharon Stone (and she was old THEN), Mr. T, Joey Lawrence (who's now bald!), Gary Coleman and ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT star, Jason Bateman.
