Ray Donovan: Season One - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
When Ray Donavan
debuted last year, it broke the record for highest ratings for a premiere on Showtime. Is it also one of the best shows on Showtime? Check out our review
for my opinion.
The Redemption of Henry Myers - Buy from Amazon
According to Amazon.com, this is in the top ten for best-selling new DVDs. However, there are no reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Odd.
Resurrection: Season 1 - Buy from Amazon
This series started out amazingly, but its ratings dropped considerably very quickly. In the end, it still was strong enough to justify a second season, but I'm not sure if it will last much longer. Because of this, I'm not sure I can recommend the show, because it is very likely most of the questions from the premise won't be answered. On the other hand, if you loved the show, strong DVD sales might be the only thing to save it.
Rizzoli & Isles: Season 4 - Buy from Amazon
One of the better police procedurals on TV at the moment and good for a summer show as well. Given its ratings, it has a least a few more seasons left in it, unless something drastic changes.
Seattle Seahawks Road to Super Bowl 48 - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
I remember seeing the spread for this game and Denver was the favored to win by a field goal. I scoffed because I knew it was going to be a blowout and figured Seattle was going to win by 17 points. They won by 35 points. As for this DVD, it is more than six hours long and includes all three playoff games. This is perfect for fans of Seattle, or as a hate gift for fans of Denver.
The Short Game - Buy from Amazon
A documentary about golf, focusing on a group of 7-year olds who wish to become professionals. The reviews are excellent and most critics agree that you don't have to like golf to like this film.
Spike Lee Joint - Collection 1 - Buy from Amazon
Still waiting for the screener to arrive. If you don't own 25th Hour and He Got Game, it is worth picking up.
Tim's Vermeer - Blu-ray Combo Pack - Buy from Amazon
A documentary about Tim Jenison search for the answer to Johannes Vermeer's photo-realistic painting technique. The film's reviews are excellent and it earned more than $1 million at the box office, which is stunning for a documentary. Definitely worth picking up if you like documentaries is general and art history in particular.
True Detective: Season One - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
This show earned some of the best buzz for a new series, but there were some complaints that the ending didn't live up to the promise. Is this the case? And if so, is the overall show still worth checking out? Read our review
to find out.
Visitors - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
A documentary about ... I'm not sure. I don't think there is a narrative to the movie, just a series of shots that are supposed to elicit an emotional response. Most critics say the film does just that, but many also say it is too avant garde for its own good.
The Who: Quadrophenia: Live in London - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
Quadrophenia is one of the greatest Rock albums of all time and by most reports, the 2013 concert tour promoting its 40th anniversary was amazing. Worth picking up if you are a fan of The Who.
