It would be hard to name anyone who has had more of an impact in the realm of animal research and wildlife conservation than Jane Goodall, whose 45 year study of wild chimpanzees in Africa is legendary. We travel with her across several continents, from her childhood home in England, to the Gombe National Park in Tanzania where she began her groundbreaking research and where she still returns every year to enjoy the company of the chimpanzees that made her famous. Featuring a wide range of interviews and spectacular footage from her own private collection, is a portrait of the private person behind the world-famous icon.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for December 27th, 2011

December 26th, 2011

It's the week after Christmas, so it should come as no surprise that there's not a lot to talk about on the home market. Granted, there are a few releases that are noteworthy, but it is a very shallow list. That said, we didn't have to lower the standard for Pick of the Week, as Archer: Season Two came out on DVD and Blu-ray. Either format is worth the money, while the latter is the better deal.

Per Theater Chart: Restlessly Waiting for Awards Season

September 21st, 2011
