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.
Presidents Day weekend is the time to take advantage of sales and get that new couch you've been eyeing or drive that new car off the lot, but it is, apparently, not the best time to get new DVDs. There are only a handful of new releases to choose from this week, and just a few of them will generate much interest. Read on for details:
This week on home video, we've got a blockbuster based on a beloved sci-fi novel, a survival tale featuring a towering performance from Robert Redford, an almost universally praised landmark film from Saudi Arabia, a comedy sequel 14 years in the making, and a bit of a clunker from Ridley Scott and some other talented folks. On the TV side, we've got an acclaimed adaptation of an iconic literary character, a Golden Tomato-winning French import, and a TV movie, as well as a bunch of smaller releases. Read on for the full list.
This week on home video, we've got a couple of Oscar contenders in the mix, beginning with a biopic that's got everyone buzzing about the Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor category. Then, there's also a touching look at an artistic NYC couple that's up for the Best Documentary award, Richard Curtis's latest romance, a well-received indie drama, and a Thanksgiving-themed animated dud. Read on for the full list.
This week on home video, we've got Ron Howard's recent sports drama, an animated sequel, a couple of reality/fiction hybrid films, a Vegas comedy, two notable TV shows, and more. Read on for the full list.
This week on home video, we've got a couple of Oscar nominated films headlining the list, so you can get caught up on them before the trophies are handed out. Then we've got a grindhouse sequel by Robert Rodriguez, Lake Bell's writing and directing debut, and a few smaller releases to talk about. Read on for the full list.
It looks like the studios have finally gotten back into the groove, as far as home video releases are concerned. This week, we've got a few big releases to talk about, but they're far overshadowed by the wealth of smaller, critically acclaimed films on the list. We've got a total of seven Certified Fresh movies coming out this week, ranging from a clever home invasion thriller to an unconventional coming-of-age story to a music documentary. Read on for the full list.
With the holiday season officially behind us, the home video releases are starting to pick up again. Not a whole lot, mind you, considering the best-reviewed stuff this week is, again, mostly limited to TV and the smaller theatrical releases, but it won't be long before the awards contenders start showing up in this column. Speaking of which, we want to note that we previously wrote about The Act of Killing back in the beginning of December, when it was originally scheduled to hit shelves, and it turns out it was actually pushed back to this week; we apologize for the mistake. With all that said, read on for this week's selections.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt's well-received directorial debut highlights another thin week for home video releases -- unsurprising, considering it's the week after Christmas and most folks are done spending money on gifts for now. The other notable items this week are a dud of a rock biopic and a ho-hum horror comedy. Read on for details.
It's a little strange to see a horror movie headline the Christmas week edition of a DVD article, but such is life. Most of you have probably already done all of your gift shopping by now, and the studios recognize that, so there's little new worth talking about. That said, here's a look at the few titles that are hitting video shelves this week.
We've got a lot of big wide releases coming on home video this week, starting with a sci-fi film with a message, a child abduction thriller, and a violent comic book sequel. Then we've got the second film in a young adult adaptation franchise, a rock doc, a blockbuster Western, and still more. Lastly, we've also got some notable TV releases to talk about, so read on for the full list.
This week on home video, we've got Paul Walker's immensely popular blockbuster swan song, a worthy animated sequel, and a very special episode of an international hit TV series. Then, we've also got a gripping Danish drama, Keanu Reeves' pet project kung fu flick, and a number of other small releases, followed by a couple of anniversary reissues and some more notable selections from the Criterion Collection. Read on for the full list.
We've got both critical highs and lows this week, with a relatively well-received action blockbuster followed by a couple of duds. Then, we've also got a couple of Certified Fresh picks, including an indie comedy and a terrifying documentary, and, as always, we finish up the list with a few choice reissues. Read on for the full list.
Another relatively thin week for new releases on home video, with the exception of one outstanding television series. We've got a middling actioner, a lazy biopic, a terrible B movie, a bizarre melodramatic thriller, and Breaking Bad (thank you for saving, the week, Walter White). There are also some notable smaller films and reissues, so bear with us.
This week on home video, we've got a number of notable new releases, but they're sort of hit or miss. The biggest titles we have are Edgar Wright's latest comedy, a Disney Toon animation, and a Jason Sudeikis/Jennifer Aniston comedy, as well as a tech thriller, a Mark Wahlberg/Denzel Washington actioner, and an indie coming-of-age comedy. Then, of course, we've got a number of smaller movies and reissued films, so read on for the full list.
We've got quite a selection this week, beginning with the mega blockbuster hit Man of Steel, along with DreamWorks Animation's Turbo, a slew of smaller, critically acclaimed films, and a couple of worthy reissues. On the TV side, there's the complete series for Showtime's hit drama Dexter, the first season of Last Tango in Halifax, and a pair of older complete series collections.
We've got a lot to cover this week on home video, including a Roland Emmerich actioner, the Extended Edition of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, a box set of Mad Men's sixth season, complete collections for shows like Seinfeld and Saved by the Bell, and notable indie releases like Lovelace, As I Lay Dying, and more. Click through for the full list.
