DVD and Blu-ray Releases for August 7th, 2012

August 7th, 2012

This is not a really slow week on the home market this week, as we have The Lorax coming out, and it was the highest-grossing animated film of the year, until Brave overtook is very recently, so it should be a big seller on the home market. Unfortunately, it is the only major release of the week. There are some other releases worth checking out, a few worth picking up, but very few that are contenders for Pick of the Week. High Fidelity is a great movie, but its Blu-ray debut is Shovelware. Personally, I think Spaceballs is really underrated, but this is not the first time it has been released on Blu-ray and double-dips are rarely Pick of the Week material. In the end, I'm going with My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: Royal Pony Wedding, because I liked the first DVD release more than I thought I would. More...

The former had just won an Oscar, while the latter was part of the biggest sitcom on TV at the time. It was a minor hit when hit came out 15 years ago, but has it aged well? And now that it has made its Blu-ray debut, is it worth picking up? More...
