Looking for something good and geeky to watch? Here are this week's notable DVD and Blu-ray releases:
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (DVD & Blu-ray)
For those who thought Transformers 2 needed more ninja kid-on-ninja kid violence comes The Rise of Cobra, a perfectly forgettable but fun piece of pop productainment. The two-disc version features docs on the film's visual effects plus a digital copy for your computer.
G.I. Joe: Resolute (DVD)
Simply put, Resolute kicks the ass of all other G.I. Joe outings, including the big screen version. The DVD collects all 11 gloriously violent episodes of the Adult Swim series written by comic scribe Warren Ellis. Remember parents, this one's aimed at adults. All the grisly scenes of cartoon blood, murder and mayhem might be too much for the kiddos.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Complete Season One (DVD & Blu-ray)
I'm told that Anakin Skywalker is still a whiny brat in this totally Lucas-fied hit Cartoon Network series. I'm also told that it looks great in HD and that many Star Wars fans love it. Still, it has General Grievous, so I say proceed with caution.
Witchblade: The Complete Series (Blu-ray)
No, not the live action series starring Yancy Butler, this is the Japanese TV series based on Top Cow's insane T&A comic. Strictly for those who like to watch their animated violence against women in HD.
Terminator Salvation: The Machinima Series (DVD)
What's that? McG's Terminator Salvation wasn't sh*tty enough for ya? Well, have I got news ... OK, seriously, this thing looks like it plays like a trailer for a video game, and that's probably because it was created with a video game engine. Pick it up if you really, really want to know more about Moon Bloodgood's "character" from the film.
Wolverine and the X-Men: Volumes 1-3 (DVD)
I'm the only X-fan I know who actually likes this new take on the mutant's animated adventures. Sure, it pretty much declaws Wolverine by making him the leader of the X-Men, but it finds clever ways to present some of the comic's classic storylines and themes.
