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.

This week on home video, Disney releases another one of its timeless classics on Blu-ray, and Tim Burton's latest collaboration with Johnny Depp and Danny Elfman hits shelves.

This week on home video, we've got a couple of things we know a lot of you have been looking forward to.

This week on home video, we've got a lot of new releases to discuss, including some very well-received movies and a couple of outright flops, as well as a collection of movies some of us have been waiting quite a while to get on Blu-ray. Click through for the full list!
We're coming off a pretty dismal box office weekend, as you may or may not know, and it's kind of indicative of this time of year in general. This means it trickles down to the home video releases, so while we do have at least one blockbuster hitting shelves, most of our releases were either barely seen or poorly reviewed; in some cases, both. Click through to see the full list!
There is one big release on home video this week that sort of outshines the others, so even though there are some new films that are coming out on DVD and Blu-ray, we thought it best to lead with the rather impressive Harry Potter set. With that said, we've also got a new set for a different blockbuster juggernaut, a new Buster Keaton movie in hi-def, and a few new releases, so click through for the full list!
The biggest movies available on home video this week aren't exactly critical darlings, but to balance out the big robots and formulaic romances, we've got a couple of acclaimed indies, a new Criterion, and a ton of 100th anniversary Blu-rays from Universal. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, we've got one big comedy and a bunch of smaller films that critically fared much better (with the exception of one, which probably should have been better). Then we've got a notable Blu-ray reissue and a few movies from the Disney vault. Click through for the full list!
There have been a few noteworthy selections on home video in recent weeks, but pickings have been decidedly slim. Luckily, this week promises to be a good one (only one Rotten film on our list), from big blockbusters to arthouse winners. Click through for the full list!
We've got another sparse week on home video, but it's at least bolstered by one outstanding documentary of a cultural icon. Beyond that, we've got a whopping three book adaptations and a historical epic actioner, so click through for the full list!
If you couldn't tell by the movies we decided to headline with, this week marked another round of less than stellar new releases on home video. Thankfully, it was somewhat saved again by a handful of worthy re-releases. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, there aren't any major new releases to speak of, so our list is stocked with independent and foreign fare. Luckily, however, most of the choices we do have are quite good. Click through for the full list!
After a couple of really disappointing weeks, we've got a handful of nice choices again. Of course, they're peppered among a few more critical disappointments, but hey, we're still miles ahead of the last two RT on DVD lists. Click through for the full list!
For the second week in a row, our choices on home video are drastically limited. Only one major wide release hits shelves (the latest installment of the American Pie franchise), and it's accompanied by three much smaller films: a Chinese drama with Christian Bale, a memoir-based indie featuring a strong Robert De Niro performance, and Paul Weitz's latest, which finally hit theaters after an original release date of 2007 was delayed by various complications.
Choices this week were pretty thin, so we've only got a few movies to talk about, including three new releases and two noteworthy reissues. First, we've got Bobcat Goldthwait's latest, a wilderness thriller starring Willem Dafoe, and a failed attempt at a quirky coming-of-age story. Then, we round things out with Blu-rays for an early Tom Cruise vehicle and a sexy cult classic. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, we've got a number of new releases to talk about, and all of them are, for better or worse, kind of interesting in their own ways. First, we've got this year's Best Picture Oscar winner, a surprising reboot of an '80s TV show, and the sequel to a poorly-reviewed adventure. Then, we've got a funny take on Snow White, Eddie Murphy's latest misfire, a couple of acclaimed foreign films, and a couple of worthy new Criterion releases. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, we've got a smattering of comedies, both good and bad, an inspirational family film, a Nic Cage thriller, and a couple of Criterion editions dedicated to movies by the prolific Steven Soderbergh. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, we've got action, we've got comedy, we've got drama, and we've got suspense. On top of that, we've got three older films with bright, shiny Criterion makeovers that should make fans of those movies dribble at the mouth just a little bit. Click through for the full list!
This week on home video, we've got some middle-of-the-road stuff, some flops, and some classics. Now, there are Blu-ray reissues of Smokey and the Bandit, Hondo, and The Color of Money, as well as a giant Ultimate Collection of The Three Stooges, but we won't be talking about those here. Our choices this week are comprised of a few action flicks, a couple of epic adventures, a classic caper, and some Beatlemania. Click through for the full list!
On this abbreviated Memorial Day edition of RT on DVD, we've got a few decent choices to pick from, beginning with an early year thriller starring Sam Worthington and Elizabeth Banks. After that, we've got a few indies critics really liked, and another poorly reviewed thriller starring Amanda Seyfried. Lastly, Criterion is releasing a pair of Bergman films perfect for the season.
