DVD and Blu-ray Releases for February 14th, 2012

February 14th, 2012

It's a really slow week at the box office with only one first run release, The Rum Diary, and it bombed in theaters. Paranormal Activity 3 is coming out on DVD this week, but it came out on Blu-ray a few weeks ago, so it is not much of a factor in terms of sales this week. In fact, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 will likely lead the sales charts, despite coming out on Saturday. As for the best of the new releases, Take Shelter on DVD or Blu-ray is probably the best, but I'm still waiting for the screener to confirm that. More...

Featured DVD Review: Up the Creek

February 10th, 2012

Up the Creek is one of many Slobs vs. Snobs films that populated the 1980s. Animal House helped invigorate the genre in 1978, but there were countless examples of the genre in the following decade. Caddyshack, Meatballs, Revenge of the Nerds, Real Genius, The Sure Thing, etc. The story of the rich and popular vs. the underclass and outcasts is a classic one, but Up the Creek is not one of the better known examples of the story. (In fact, there are no reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.) So is this a buried gem that is finally getting a chance to be rediscovered? Or should it have remained buried. More...
