It?s that time of year again, when studios start rereleasing films that have gotten Academy Awards in the past, only this time with shiny new packaging. So yes, if you hit up your local store, you?ll find ?new? editions of movies like The Blind Side, Gone With the Wind, L.A. Confidential, and The Wizard of Oz. For the most part, however, these releases simply rehash bonus material previously available, and aside from the golden packaging, there isn?t much to differentiate them from earlier releases, so we won?t be covering them here. Then there are a lot of other films that are seeing new editions hit the shelves, but again with little to offer as far as actual new content; movies like Ever After, A Walk in the Clouds, Blade Runner: The Final Cut, and Doctor Zhivago. So we won?t be covering those either. Instead, we?ll focus on the brand new releases, and the one or two notable others that?ll be coming to video stores this week. Take a look and see what?s on offer!
