DVD and Blu-ray Releases for August 6th, 2013

Like it usually is during the summer, this week is rather soft on home market. Granted, there is one wide release that did very well at the box office, Oblivion, plus a couple of limited releases that did well to earn a serious measure of mainstream success, The Place Beyond the Pines and Mud. However, there are also some releases in the top twenty that are definitely filler. Usually, once you reach exercise videos, there's nothing worth talking about. Of course, if I used that rule this week, there would be almost nothing on this week's list. Mud is likely the best release and the DVD or Blu-ray is worth picking up, but I'm still waiting for the screener to review and I hate awarding something Pick of the Week if the screener is late. Because of this, I'm going with another late release, Burn Notice: Season Six, as Pick of the Week. It arrived more than a month late, but it was worth the wait. More...

Featured Blu-ray Review: Disney Triple-Shot

This week three Disney animated movies are coming out on Blu-ray for the first time, one from the 1980s, Oliver and Company; one from the 1970s, Robin Hood; and one from the 1960s, The Sword in the Stone. We will be starting with Robin Hood, because it is the only one of the three that I haven't previously reviewed. Have these three films aged well? And are the Blu-rays worth the upgrade? More...
