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.

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.

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.

This week on home video, we've got some good new releases and a few reissues worth mentioning.

Last week we suffered from a dearth of worthy titles on home video, so it's nice that we have a wider variety to talk about this week. We start things off with a return visit with the Men in Black and another spooky stop-motion animation from the people who made Coraline. Then, we've got a couple of movies about siblings (some gangsters, and some motown singers), the latest in hippity-hoppitiest dance franchise, and another haunted house movie that bombed.

This may be the week of Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but it looks like home video distributors didn't much care. There is so little coming out tomorrow that we're limiting our selection to just four entries. Thankfully, they're all fairly notable items, so click through to see the full list!
This week on home video, we've got a pretty big variety to choose from. The best we have to offer ranges between a solid Pixar effort, an engrossing documentary, and a few classics. Then we have a few films that left critics largely undecided, and lastly there's at least one misfire that's at least an interesting misfire. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, we get the recent reboot of a Marvel icon, a couple of Christmas movies for kids, a drama that should have been better than it was, an indie comedy critics liked, and a Billy Wilder classic on Blu-ray. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, our biggest movie is also the lowest-rated one on the list. This isn't to say it isn't any good (it still earned a 66% on the Tomatometer), but the smaller releases and the Blu-ray reissues are much stronger. Click through to see the full list!
This week on home video, we get Steven Soderbergh's male stripper drama, some supernatural revisionist American history, and Tyler Perry's latest Madea comedy.

Wes Anderson came back in a big way this year (even bigger than surprising the world with his animated masterpiece Fantastic Mr. Fox) and now his Moonrise Kingdom is now available to own on DVD. On top of that, we got something new from DreamWorks Animation, an Adam Sandler joint, and some lo-fi horror from the creator of Paranormal Activity. Click through for the full list!
We know, we know; a lot of you were looking forward to a lot more than what you were given in Prometheus. Well, if you want to rewatch it and rehash it with your friends, it's finally out on video this week. But while Prometheus was one of the most anticipated, most talked-about movies of the year so far, there are some other items of note, like a rock musical, a couple of Hitchcock movies on Blu-ray, and a magical film by Steven Spielberg.
