Holiday Gift Guide: Seven Snazzy Under The Radar Blu-ray Sets
Every year, the big home distribution companies pop out several thoughtful and intricate Blu-ray sets. Most of the big ones are adequately advertised and gleefully waited for by eager fans. 2012 was a great year, one that saw Brave get a 3D cover to match the content inside, one that saw the Avengers get a multitude of different releases with different sets of extras for different fans, and one that saw a Prometheus 4-Disc Collectorís Edition set that was to die for. In the same year that Bond turned fifty and the Dark Knight rose, there were still plenty of sets that probably didnít get the prominence they deserved.
These under the radar sets certainly have their fan bases, and could make a great gift for the right person. Now, Cinema Blend writer Jessica Rawden is here to navigate a few of 2012ís less prominent sets, and help readers to find one that you may have missed, but that could absolutely, positively make a good gift. So, if you have a nostalgic friend or a collector friend, if you know an animation lover or a musical fiend, youíve found the right list.
1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Complete Classic Series Collection
Many a young child found seemingly never-ending joy in the animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series, airing between 1987 and 1996. For nearly a decade, we laughed at Rafaelís bad jokes, rooted for the rat Sensei to make it out of tight situations, and cringed at Aprilís bright yellow jumpsuit. Itís hard to imagine a set that captures the exact magic of a childhood favorite series, but the TMNT: The Complete Classic Series Collection actually achieves it. Featuring all ten original seasons housed in a classic turtle van, this set is for all lovers of the Ninja Turtles.
Pair it With: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live action triple feature. It was a good year for the Turtles, and this 3-movie film set comes with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, TMNT II: The Secret of the Ooze, and TMNT III: Turtles in Time. Cowabunga!
