Geek Gift Guild 2008Here at Geeks of Doom we know how hard it can be to wade through those frenzied crowds at the department stores during the holidays. We also know that Christmas time is a time where, let’s face it, we’re all spending tons of money on our friends, family, and colleagues. That’s why every day, we post about great sales on DVDs, music, video games, and more to help our readers save a buck, especially during this bank-breaking season.

Hopefully, our daily Deal posts have already helped all of you get most of your holiday shopping done, but for those of you who still are on the lookout for great gift ideas, we Geeks compiled some of our favorite items to help you finish up your last-minute gift-buying. If you plan to buy these items online, we’ve also included the shipping deadlines to ensure that you get your stuff on or before Christmas Eve.

Check out our handy Geek Holiday Gift Guide ’08 below for all the coolest items this season has to offer in DVDs, music, books, comic books, video games, collectibles, electronics, and more.

DVD Review: Wall•E (3-Disc Special Edition Blu-ray)

Wall•E Blu-ray dvd
Wall•E
3-Disc Special Edition Blu-ray
Directed by Andrew Stanton
Starring Ben Burtt, Elissa Knight, Jeff Garlin, Fred Willard
Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Release Date: November 18, 2008

The states of bewilderment and wonderment that was colonized in characters and stories involving toys, fish, cars and rats isn’t as powerfully conceived with robots. That is not to say Wall•E falls flat on its face either. There is truth to be told in a post-apocalyptic animated film that echoes a kids version of An Inconvenient Truth. Yet, as the ego unceasingly begins to swell at the studios of Pixar, they should realize that conquering space is much more arduous than conquering a boy’s bedroom, a French restaurant, a run down Route 66, and the Atlantic Ocean.

There is something magnificent lurking in the first half of Wall•E, the half that winces at the use of any dialogue for the first 40 minutes and magically pulls it off. The camera comprehends the same magnificence as well as it journeys down from space playing the tune “Put On Your Sunday clothes,” only to find itself coming through the clouds to meet a desolate Earth where the human race is no longer present. We glimpse massive skyscrapers that aren’t made of metal but of neatly packed squares of rubbish. They are neatly placed atop of each other courtesy of the last trash clean-up robot on Earth named WALL•E. He continues his normal routine everyday not really knowing that he’s all alone save for his best friend, a cockroach.

0708081128.jpgAnother cool little item has arrived in the mail this week. This time, much to my surprise, it’s the Cube and Stack Wall-E Action Figure … with Pop-Out Action!

Oh, I’m so in my glory now, because I love me some Wall-E and WALL-E himself. And my Mama (who you might remember from this guest entry) knows it too, so when she saw this 10-inch action figure at her local Blockbuster store, she got it for me … for no special occasion, just cuz she loves me, her only daughter :-)

And I didn’t know it was coming, hell, I didn’t even know it existed. Now that I look, there are a ton of Wall-E related toys out there. But that’s for another time. For now, let’s look at my little item.
