DVD and Blu-ray Releases for October 28th, 2014

October 27th, 2014

It's a terrible week on the home market with no major releases. The biggest theatrical release is Begin Again, which earned excellent reviews, but opened in limited release and never expanded truly wide. The best new release on the list is the limited edition Breaking Bad: The Complete Series 2014 Barrel, but it costs more than $200, so it is out of the price range of most people.

Begin Again wins Pick of the Week, practically by default, as it is the only release I can enthusiastically recommend. More...

Rush Out to See Limited Releases this Weekend

September 20th, 2013
