DVD and Blu-ray Releases for November 29th, 2011

November 29th, 2011

It's another relatively slow week on the home market. The two biggest release of the week don't come out till Friday, while there are few other releases to pick up the slack. As for the search for best and not necessarily the biggest, there are a few contenders. Cave of Forgotten Dreams earned Oscar-worthy reviews and the 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack is a clear contender for Pick of the Week. But in the end I went with Tucker and Dale vs. Evil on DVD or Blu-ray.

Featured Blu-ray Review: From Dusk Till Dawn Trilogy Set

November 27th, 2011

From Dusk Till Dawn debuted in theaters 15 years ago and, while it wasn't a huge hit in theaters, it became a cult hit on the home market. It did well enough that two direct-to-DVD sequels were made a few years later. Now Echo Bridge Home Entertainment is releasing all three movies, plus a making of documentary, all on one a Blu-ray disc. It's has a low price-per-minute, but how many of the movies are really worth owning? More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for May 3rd, 2011

May 3rd, 2011

Historically, this is the weakest time of year for DVD releases. The last of the winter releases have already been released. It's too early for the flood of TV on DVD releases for the upcoming season in the fall. And studios are too worried about competing with blockbusters in theaters. There's really only one first run release that's generating any buzz, The Green Hornet, but while the 3D Blu-ray / Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack is worth picking up, the sales potential quickly declines from that point and by the time you reach the bottom of the top ten, you are really struggling to find any release that will have any real impact on the home market. As for the best release, as opposed to the biggest, there are two TV on DVD imports that are worth checking out: Being Human: Season 3 on DVD and Murdoch Mysteries: Season 3 on DVD or Blu-ray. (The Blu-ray release for Being Human is too pricey.) Both are worth picking up, but for Pick of the Week, I'm going with Murdoch Mysteries. More...
