Based on the publishing phenomenon, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters continues the young demigod's epic journey to fulfill his destiny. To save their world, Percy and his friends must find the fabled and powerfully magic Golden Fleece. Embarking on a treacherous odyssey into the uncharted waters of the Sea of Monsters (known to humans as the Bermuda Triangle), they battle terrifying creatures, an army of zombies, and the ultimate Evil.
The Percy Jackson series gives Greek mythology a contemporary reboot as a hesitant young man discovers he's the only son of the sea god Poseidon and has supernatural powers and wild adventures thrust upon him. In Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, the haven that protects Percy (Logan Lerman) and other demigods is threatened, potentially leaving them vulnerable to the titans and monsters that seek to destroy them. Only the healing power of the legendary Golden Fleece can save them. Clarisse (Leven Rambin), daughter of war god Ares, is chosen for this quest, but Percy and his friends Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario) and Grover (Brandon T. Jackson) set out after the Fleece as well, accompanied by Percy's unexpected half-brother Tyson (Douglas Smith), who just happens to be a cyclops. After the lackluster first movie, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is palpably more energetic and a bit more true to the books (though some fans may wonder about one particular plot change towards the end of the movie). Don't expect much fidelity to the original mythology, but the narrative zips along and the fights provide suitable spectacle. Boosting the consistent action are a variety of star cameos, including Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games) as Dionysus (or "Mr. D") and especially Nathan Fillion (Firefly) as an entrepreneurial Hermes. --Bret Fetzer

Justice League of America: Season 2 (DVD)
In this action-packed animated series, the World's Greatest Super Heroes, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Hawkgirl and Martian Manhunter, join forces as the Justice League to battle powerful villains, supernatural creatures and evil entities determined to take over the world and destroy the League. Highlights of season two include League founder J'onn J'onzz fighting an android, League members confronting their deepest fears in a dream world, and a race through Las Vegas to deactivate all of The Joker's planted bombs, among other wild adventures.]]>
Better characterization and epic storylines combined with the usual topnotch voice talent make Justice League's second season even better than the first. Some of the more intriguing story lines involve the League forming an unlikely partnership with Darkseid against Brainiac ("Twilight"); an alternate-dimension Justice League establishing a martial state in order to keep the peace ("A Better World"), which raises an interesting moral question that came up later in DC's Identity Crisis comic series; the death of Superman ("Hereafter"); and the League teaming up with Doctor Fate, Aquaman, and Solomon Grundy ("The Terror Beyond"). Other villains include the Secret Society and the Joker's Royal Flush Gang; Amazo, the android who can absorb the heroes' powers; Vandal Savage; and Eclipso. Most story lines are given two episodes (except the holiday-themed single episode "Comfort and Joy" and the three-part season finale "Starcrossed") and involve some combination of the seven Justice Leaguers: Batman (voiced by Kevin Conroy, continuing his work from Batman: The Animated Series), Superman (George Newbern), Wonder Woman (Susan Eisenberg), J'onn J'onzz (Carl Lumbly), Hawkgirl (Maria Canals), Green Lantern (Phil Lamarr), and the Flash (Michael Rosenbaum). One of the themes developed was an emerging relationship between Hawkgirl and another Leaguer, but it threatens to come apart in the monumental "Starcrossed," when her fellow Thanagarians arrive on Earth to protect humanity from a Gordanian invasion and it turns out Hawkgirl has been keeping a secret from her teammates. Producer Bruce Timm, casting director Andrea Romano, and others also worked on the highly regarded Batman and Superman animated series, and the result is one of the best animated series on television, satisfying for adults and sometimes too intense for kids.
DVD features include commentary by producers Timm and James Tucker, director Butch Lukic or writer Stan Berkowitz, and story editor Dwayne McDuffie on three episodes (why they love Hawkgirl: "If she loves you, she loves you with all her heart. If she hates you, she's gonna hit you with that big honkin' mace."), and featurettes on the voice talent and the second season. The series is shown in the widescreen format it adopted for this season, but it's not anamorphically enhanced for widescreen televisions, which is unusual for 2006, especially considering Starcrossed was released in anamorphic widescreen as a stand-alone DVD in 2004. --David Horiuchi
|Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (Limited Edition)
Lowest new price: $42.99
Lowest used price: $12.99

Brand: TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX HOME ENT
For the first time ever and for a limited time only, the enhanced versions of the Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi will be available individually on DVD. Plus, these 2-Disc DVD's will feature a bonus disc that includes, for the first time ever on DVD, the original films as seen in theaters in 1977, 1980 and 1983.
The 2006 limited-edition two-disc release of George Lucas's epic space fantasy Star Wars is not only the first time the movie has been officially available by itself on DVD. It marks the first-ever DVD release of Star Wars as it originally played in theaters in 1977. What does that mean exactly? Well, for starters, the initial title crawl proclaims that this is just Star Wars, not Episode IV, A New Hope. Second, the film is without the various "improvements" and enhancements Lucas added for the theatrical rerelease in 1997 as well as the DVD premiere in 2004. So no more critters and droids scurrying around the port of Mos Eisley when Luke and Obi-Wan Kenobi first arrive, no meetings between Han Solo and Jabba the Hut and between Luke and Biggs (extraneous scenes that were cut in 1977), no enhanced explosions during the final reel, and--most importantly to some fans--no more of Greedo shooting first in the bar. Instead Han is free to be the scoundrel and not even let Greedo squeeze off a shot.
What do you lose by watching the 1977 version? Dolby Digital 5.1 EX sound, for one thing (only 2.0 Surround here). Digital cleanup for another--Tatooine looks like it's been coated with an additional layer of sand cloud. But for home-theater owners, the biggest frustration will be from the non-anamorphic picture. On a widescreen TV, an anamorphically enhanced (16x9) picture at a 2.35:1 aspect ratio will fill the screen with the exception of small black bars on the top and bottom. The original edition of Star Wars, however, is not anamorphically enhanced (sometimes referred to as "4:3 letterbox"), so on a widescreen TV it will have large black bars on the top, the bottom, and the sides unless you stretch the picture (and distort it in the process, especially considering the substandard picture quality). If you're watching on a standard square-shaped (4:3) TV, though, you won't notice a difference.
Yes, it's true that serious home-theater lovers who want spectacular sound and anamorphically enhanced picture can always watch the 2004 version of the movie also included in this set. But chances are good that they already picked up the trilogy edition of all three films, so their decision to buy the 2006 two-disc edition depends on how much they want the original film. The official LucasFilm stance is that this is an individual release of the 2004 version of Star Wars: Episode IV, A New Hope, and the 1977 version of the film is merely a "bonus feature." Common speculation is that the only reason the original versions are seeing the official light of day at all is to undercut the booming black market for the laserdisc version. Star Wars fans will have to decide for themselves if that's worth the purchase. --David Horiuchi

Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo (DVD)
Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven and Beast Boy are back to save the world in their very first film, Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo.This time, the Teen Titans battle a mysterious and menacing Japanese criminal known as Brushogun, who has sent a high-tech ninja to attack the young heroes. The battle has only begun for the crime fighting five, who pack their bags and take off for Tokyo to take on their newest menace. Yet, the City That Never Blinks might be too much for the teens -- and the mystery of Brushogun too difficult to solve.]]>
Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo is the first feature-length animated adventure for the popular superhero unit, and its producers pull no punches in delivering a stylish and crowd-pleasing story for the Titans' considerable fan base. Trouble takes the Titans--Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven, and Beast Boy--to the Land of the Rising Sun after the ninja Saico-Tek assaults Titans Tower. Once in Japan, the team discovers that a mysterious figure known as Brushogen (who is considered only a myth by the authorities) is behind Saico-Tek and a horde of anime-inspired creatures that are laying waste to Tokyo. Will the Titans locate Brushogen before his monsters cause more havoc? And will the long-simmering emotions shared by Robin and Starfire finally come to a head in this exotic location? The answers, of course, are all to be found in this 75-minute blast, which gives the Titans faithful all the action and smart scripting they've come to expect from the weekly series, as well as a few pleasant surprises and numerous nods to Japanese pop culture. The DVD is fleshed out by two supplemental features: "The Lost Episode," which aired only on the Postopia.com site, and an interactive game, "Robin's Underworld Race Challenge." --Paul Gaita
