RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: Gravity, Thor: The Dark World, and More
Critical darlings Blue Is the Warmest Color, Nebraska, and Muscle Shoals also available.
After last week's lackluster selection, we bounce back this week with a number of crowdpleasers and acclaimed films, beginning with a blockbuster Marvel sequel and Alfonso Cuarón's multiple award-winning sci-fi thriller. Then we've got Alexander Payne's Oscar-nominated road trip drama, a much talked about French romance, and a solid rock doc, as well as a handful of worthy rereleases and choices on TV. Read on for the full list:
Also available this week:
The Crash Reel (96%), a Certified Fresh documentary about Olympic snowboarder Kevin Pearce, who suffered a life-threatening blow to the head but refused to stay down.
French import You Will Be My son (89%), a drama about an aging vineyard owner who must decide whether to turn his business over to his son or another man he considers to be more like himself.
Narco Cultura (88%), a documentary about Mexican drug traffickers and their strange influence on pop culture and music.
