This week on home video, we've got one of the big award-winners of last year, followed by a few not so acclaimed films, including a road trip comedy, a noir-ish thriller, and a dark farce. Then we've got a couple of smaller films and a slew of Blu-ray reissues. Click through for the full list.
This week on home video, we've got at least one Certified Fresh drama that earned some Academy Awards attention, as well as a crime thriller with a high profile cast. Then, there's also the 3D rerelease of a certain dino movie, a topical drama, and a bad spoof. Click through for the full list.
With the exception of our illustrious headliner, you can mark this down as the third week in a row we've had with just a few notable releases on home video. Maybe Quentin Tarantino's latest is big enough to render all others negligible, but for what it's worth, we also have a relationship dramedy starring Lizzy Caplan and Alison Brie, as well as an animated film from France and a small nature documentary and our customary Criterion Collection releases. Click through for the full list.
For the second week in a row, we've got some pretty slim choices coming on on home video. So much so that really the only notable new release is an FDR biopic misfire starring Bill Murray. Since there wasn't much else to write about, we're also including two others that at least received Fresh reviews, as well as a couple of new Criterion releases that may be of interest to you cinephiles out there.

Believe it or not (and trust me when I say this isn't some half-baked attempt at an April Fool's joke column), there are no new wide releases coming out on home video this week. As a result, the Avengers-themed box set will easily be of greatest interest, while everything else sort of falls by the wayside. You may not have even heard of a few of the movies featured this week, but for better or worse, you can click through for the full list.
This week on home video, we've got an Oscar winner and another Oscar nominee, a comedy flop, a couple of dark comedies, and a bit of the old ultraviolence. Plus, there are a few notable reissues from the Criterion Collection and on Blu-ray. Click through for the full list!
Three of this week's new releases on home video were recognized by the Academy with Oscar nominations this year, so that's already a pretty good start. The other three selections include two comedies that earned mixed reactions and one French import featuring some impressive performances, and those are followed by a number of notable rereleases.

This week on home video, we've got four new releases that are Certified Fresh, including one multiple Oscar-winner, one animated adventure, a music doc, and an indie drama about alcoholism. On top of that, there's also the relatively well-received biopic about Alfred Hitchcock and the making of Psycho and a quirky Sean Penn-powered road trip drama. Lastly, we have a feature adaptation of the famed Cirque du Soleil troupe's performances, as well as a handful of notable reissues. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, we've got at least one Oscar nominee in the mix (Wreck-It Ralph), but it's balanced out by a couple of duds, including an unnecessary 1980s remake and another failed Gerard Butler rom-com. Then, we've also got a French import that broke records overseas and Barry Levinon's effective found footage horror movie. To top it all off, we've got a couple of notable reissues, including a Freddy Kreuger collection to die for. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, we've only got five major releases to talk about in detail, but they certainly run the gamut. From angsty (and ridiculously popular) teen vampires to thrill-seeking surfers, from an exploration of cult dynamics to a cinematic dream, and including a doc with that rare 100% Tomatometer, we think you'll be hard pressed not to find something to watch this week.

One of last year's most talked about and (thus far) most honored films hits store shelves this week. Though it's tough to know what Argo's chances of winning the Best Picture Oscar are, at least it'll benefit from likely big rental numbers. Otherwise, we've also got Joe Wright's latest period piece with Keira Knightley, a Nickelodeon teen comedy, a fairly well-reviewed horror flick, and a ton of reissues. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, we have the newly crowned Outstanding British Film BAFTA winner Skyfall, as well as an Oscar-nominated Helen Hunt performance in The Sessions. Then, we've got a couple of highly rated indie dramas, a powerful documentary on bullying, RZA's ambitious kung fu flick, and a subpar horror sequel. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, we've got Denzel Washington in an Oscar-nominated performance, Kevin James in the octagon, Tyler Perry squaring off against a serial killer, and a likable indie rom-com. Then we've got a quiet drama with some star pedigree and three documentaries with Tomatometer scores of 94% and up. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, Adam Sandler plays an animated Dracula, and Colin Farrell reunites with his In Bruges director for another Certified Fresh winner. Then we've got a couple of horror movies -- one bad and one decent -- and an action dud from the guy who made JCVD. Plus, there are a few noteworthy reissues to talk about, so click through for the full list!
This week on home video, we've got a few Certified Fresh movies to share with you, and at the top of the list is a gritty copy thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena. After that, we've got an Oscar-nominated music documentary, a period drama based on a book, a cheeky female comedy, and another acclaimed doc about a bizarre crime story. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, we start with an action sequel and a mediocre supernatural thriller. Then, Woody Allen visits another European city, and a couple of solid actresses try to make a point about education reform. Then we've got an inspirational documentary about a scrappy ball team, as well as another about an iconic American city. Click through for the full list!
This week, we return to a regular rotation of home video releases with a few notable selections and, as always, a few less than notable ones. Among the choices are a well received comic-based action film, Tim Burton's latest stop-motion project, a Qatsi-esque visual collage, and a ripped-from-the-headlines thriller. In addition, there's also a Jennifer Lawrence-powered horror dud, a hit-and-miss road trip comedy, and an implausible Nic Cage heist flick. Click through for the full list!
Last week was the longest RT on DVD article of the year, and this week, we've got the shortest RT on DVD article ever. While most films opted to hit the home video market before Christmas and take full advantage of the holiday buying rush, our one release today decided to throw caution to the wind. Rian Johnson's Looper is the only home video release worth talking about this week, so without further ado, let's talk about it.
With Christmas just a week away, it's not surprising that so many films found their way into home video release this week. As such, there's a pretty wide variety available, ranging from sci-fi blockbusters to indie comedies, from dramas to action thrillers, and even a little something for the kids. On top of that, we've got a pretty solid number of Certified Fresh films in the mix, so click through for our longer-than-usual list!
This week on home video, we've got a couple of franchise sequels and Seth MacFarlane's live action big screen debut. Criterion unveils an early Christopher Nolan film and a unique cinematic trilogy, and Drafthouse Films reintroduces the world to a forgotten relic of the 1980s. Click through for the full list!
