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

August 7th, 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.

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...

Limited Release: Ready to Attack

Featured Blu-ray Review: Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure

November 11th, 2012

There have been plans to turn the Bill and Ted franchise into a trilogy for sometime now; however, there have been a number of delays. The latest reports have a 2014 release date, but that's hardly set in stone. Perhaps the release of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure on Blu-ray is a way to float a trial balloon. Is there still interest in these two characters? Or is it safe to say these two characters are relics of the past? More...
