DVD and Blu-ray Releases for January 4th, 2011

The first week of the year and this year starts the same way last year ends, without a whole lot of must have choices. Machete is topping the chart, and it's a good movie, but there are not enough extras on the DVD / Blu-ray to rate as Pick of the Week material. On the other hand, Howl's DVD and Blu-ray are loaded with extras, but the movie didn't live up to expectations with critics. After going over the list for a third time, I have to conclude that there are no Pick of the Week releases this time around. That should change next week. More...

DVD Releases for November 1, 2005

Every week, movies (e.g. Star Wars, Episode III - Revenge of the Sith) get a second chance on the home market.

Here is a list, including Star Wars, Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, and a few from the growing TV on DVD section. As you can probably tell, Star Wars, Episode III - Revenge of the Sith - Buy from Amazon is this week's DVD Pick of the Week. Not that there was ever any doubt about that. More...

DVD Releases for January 20, 2004

Every week films get a second chance at success from the home market; or, in some cases, a first chance at success. Here is a list of wide releases, limited releases and even one or two from the growing TV on DVD section. If I were to pick just one DVD this week, it would be Once Upon a Time in Mexico - (Buy from Amazon.) But there are plenty of choices for everyone this week. More...
