    Rawhide: Eighth & Final Season

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on June 4th, 2014

    Long before Clint Eastwood was making our day as Dirty Harry or even roaming the badlands without a name for Sergio Leone, he was working the cattle drive on Rawhide. Rawhide was created to take advantage of the huge Western film and television wave that Hollywood had been riding for nearly a decade. With huge ratings for Gunsmoke and Bonanza among others, Rawhide was a bit of an unlikely success. Here the show explored the West on an endless cattle drive to get a few thousand steer to market. Along the way the crew would find themselves involved in someone else’s troubles or meet trouble head on themselves.

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on December 18th, 2008

    This is the second half of the third season of Rawhide. Among the better episodes found in this collection are: Incident On The Road Back. Favor is accused of horse rustling. That means hangin’ in those days. In Incident Of The Boomerang, some cattle are off to the Land Down Under, but one of the men may not be who he says he is. Rowdy is arrested for murder… again.

    Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015

    Posted in Tribute by Gino Sassani on February 28th, 2015

    “We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted that in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most… human.”

    Many of the headlines read: “Spock is dead”. Of course, that’s not really true. Spock is a fictional character that will live on likely longer than any of us. But fans of science fiction in general and Star Trek fans in particularly have lost a friend today who was very human. Leonard Nimoy was 83.

    Gabe the Cupid Dog

    Posted in Disc Reviews by BABY on October 30th, 2012

    Baby here again. Yeah, I’m that German Shepherd Chow that keeps you UPS/Fed Ex guys on their toes. Now, if only I can figure out a way to keep you on your trucks. I just started a SWAT team here at Upcomingdiscs. That’s right. Whenever I want a treat or to be pet I swat Gino with my paw. It doesn’t always work on the first try, but I believe in the motto: If at first you don’t succeed, swat and swat again. Sometimes it finally works. Other times … well … Let’s not talk about that right now, okay. We have a movie to talk about.

    Fistful of Dollars (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on September 2nd, 2011

    “Everybody here has become very rich, or else they are dead.”

    In 1964 things were very different from the way they are now. The Hollywood western movie was winding down. The genre had pretty much played itself out and was struggling to maintain even on television. Few people knew who Clint Eastwood was. He had a pretty sweet gig on the television series Rawhide but wasn’t anywhere near a household name. Sergio Leone was a name almost no one had heard of. And there was no such thing as a Spaghetti Western.

    The Virginian – The Complete Season Two

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on March 9th, 2011

    “This is Fairfax County in the state of Virginia. I was born here. It’s peaceful, beautiful, and a long long way from Wyoming; beautiful, too, in its special way. Vast, proud and lonely; it’s my country now, Wyoming. But not exactly a peaceful one.”

    Of course, if it were all that peaceful it wouldn’t have made for very compelling television. But The Virginian did make for compelling western drama in a television landscape that was as populated as prairies in those plains with western dramas.

    G.I. Joe the Movie (Special Edition) (Blu-Ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on July 19th, 2010

    G.I. Joe the Movie was originally supposed to be a real box office movie. It was to be the first of three animated motion pictures put out by Hasbro Toys. The other two were based on Transformers and My Little Pony. However, production delays caused the other two to go first. When Transformers and My Little Pony did poorly (gee, never would have guessed that a talking magical pony failed to grab box office sales), it was decided that G.I. Joe would go the direct video route. Years later, it still proved to be arguably the best of the three.

    Air Bud: World Pup Special Edition DVD

    Posted in Disc Reviews by BABY on June 22nd, 2010

    Hey everybody. Baby, back again to bring you yet another dog movie from a dog’s point of view, which is the floor, in case anybody out there really wants to know. You see, Gino won’t let me on the furniture in the theater. He says that just because the seats look like chew toys, and smell like chew toys, doesn’t mean they actually are chew toys. I mean, really, people. You wanna talk about your special effects, which reminds me of something else I’m not supposed to do in the theater, but let’s not talk about that right now.

    Saturday Morning Cartoons – 1980s, Volume 1

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on May 4th, 2010

    Most of my growing up and living occurred in the 1980’s. From ages five to fifteen, I grew up in an era that was famous to many different types of cartoons. It helped to shape my personality, from bad jokes to that unmistakable sarcasm. So, it was easy to attract me to a cartoon set that showcased odds and ends from that familiar era. Join me as we take a step back in history, a history that hits very close to home.

    Mystery Science Theater 3000: XVI

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on December 7th, 2009

    This series from Comedy Central began as a low budget film hosting show in a small television station in Minnesota. It was the brainchild of Joel Hodgson. It ended up running for 11 years and a feature film version.

    Mystery Science Theatre is an acquired taste. For me, I’ve really got to be in that certain mood to watch it. That’s the beauty of these DVD’s. You pop them in when you’re ready. The idea is pretty whacked. Depending on the season you’ve got, Joel or Mike is trapped in space on the “Satellite of Love”. Doomed to spend his life watching very bad films,

    Wyatt Earp: Complete Season 1

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on April 23rd, 2009

    “I’ll tell you a story, a real life story, a tale of the western frontier. The West, it was lawless, but one man was flawless, and his is the story you’ll hear. Wyatt Earp, brave, courageous, and bold. Long live his fame and long live his glory, and long may his story be told.”

    The catchy theme to The Life And Legend Of Wyatt Earp was written by Harold Adamson and Harry Warren. It was sung by The Ken Darby Singers. It set you up for the adventure and heroics that were to follow for the next 26 minutes in 1955 for anyone lucky enough to have a television set.

    Best of Mister Ed – Volume One

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Archive Authors on January 31st, 2004

    I am just old enough to remember when my favorite childhood television channel, Nickelodeon, took on a new evening persona called Nick at Night. “What were they doing to my beloved cartoons?”, I pondered. I still remember those first few weeks of the new format, tuning in during the evening hours after my father had returned home from a long day at work. I was amazed to see that not only were my parents interested in what I was watching, but they actually knew what it was before I did! How was this possible!?
