DVD and Blu-ray Releases for June 3rd, 2014

June 2nd, 2014

It's not a bad week on the home market, given the time of year. Lone Survivor earned more than $100 million at the box office and the Blu-ray Combo Pack is clearly worth picking up. It isn't quite Pick of the Week material, on the other hand. There are a few choices including a pair of documentaries: Plimpton! Starring George Plimpton As Himself - Buy from Amazon and Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction - Buy from Amazon. The third option was Attack on Titan, Part 1 - Blu-ray Combo Pack Regular Edition or Limited Edition. It was essentially a coin-toss between the three, but in the end I went with Plimpton! as Pick of the Week. More...

A Sampling of Limited Releases

September 13th, 2013

The list of new limited releases is shorter than it was last week, but there are more films earning Award-worthy reviews this week than there were last week. Wadjda, Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction, Sample This, and Blue Caprice are all either above 90%, or very close to it. Of those four, Blue Caprice has the best shot at breakout success, but I hope they all thrive in limited release. More...

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: The Last Stand

May 19th, 2013

The Last Stand was important for two reasons. Firstly, it was the first starring role for Arnold Schwarzenegger in a decade, while it was also the English-language debut for Kim Jee-woon. Unfortunately, while I wanted the film to do well, it made less in total that I predicted it would make during its opening weekend. Is it really that bad? Or should moviegoers who skipped it the first time check it out on the home market? More...

Featured TV on DVD Review: Gunsmoke: Season Seven, Volume One

December 8th, 2012

For a long time, Gunsmoke was the longest running narrative show in American TV history (as opposed to news shows or sports shows). It has been a while since I reviewed the show, but in four years, only a few seasons have come out. It's going to take forever to get this series finished. Is it worth the wait for fans? Will those who are too young to have seen the show growing up get into it? More...
