New Releases, week of 7/6/13: Kung Fu Heroes Edition

There were two notable deaths last week which I feel like I should acknowledge here: actor and filmmaker Lau Kar Leung and actor Jim Kelly (Enter the Dragon). Each left their own imprint on action films and martial arts movie...

New Releases, week of 6/29/13: Achoo Resneezes Edition

I've been sick for the last three weeks, and it's gone from being unpleasant to just downright annoying. After looking up my symptoms online, I'm led to believe that I'm suffering from The Scriverner's Lung, The Hipster Drops...

New Releases, week of 6/22/13: Totes Stoked Edition

Stoker is finally out. I'm happy to see it finally hit home video because it had a limited run in theaters and its been a film I've wanted to see for awhile. Nicole Kidman's in it, and she's one of my boos. I could go as far ...

New Releases, week of 6/15/13: Lilo & Snitch Edition

There are a lot of may/may not be good new releases on home video this week compared to last week's average affair. Leading the charge is Oz the Great and Powerful (which Matt found befuddling), Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunte...

New Releases, week of 6/8/13: Hard Bodies Edition

This week we have a good amount of average films releasing this week. Some may like them more than others, but we're talking middle of the road here. Buuuut, if TV's your thing I hear the fifth season of Breaking Bad is relea...

New Releases, week of 6/1/13: Who Are You? Who, Who Ed.

We don't usually highlight the TV releases on DVD and Blu-ray, but since this week is light on the movie side, we're making an exception. The biggie this week is Doctor Who: Series Seven - Part Two, which includes "The Name o...

New Releases, week of 5/25/13: Arnold's Return Edition

It's a week of many new releases and re-releases on DVD and Blu-ray. Leading the way is Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to the big screen The Last Stand, along with the horror anthology The ABCs of Death, the Jason Statham fli...

New Releases, week of 5/18/13: Happy Little Cloud Edition

Today's affirmation: whenever you're feeling down, just remember that the blue Jedi ghost of Bob Ross loves you like a little woodland critter. This will save your life some day, trust me. The big new release this week is Clo...

New Releases, week of 5/11/13: Heading Upstream Edition

First off, sorry this edition of New Releases is a day later than usual. Running behind with lots of things this week. Netflix Now will also be a day late. I owe you an ice cream.* The new releases this week include Jack Reac...

Cleopatra getting 50th anniversary re-releases

Cleopatra, the epic film known as much for its off screen issues as it was for its grandeur, is turning 50 this year and 20th Century Fox isn't about to miss out on the opportunity to celebrate it. They've remastered the...

New Releases, week of 5/14/13: Big Bad Borg Edition

While most folks will be interested in Silver Linings Playbook today (as it earned a bunch of awards and the like), I'll be trying to find myself a copy of Manborg. We've featured a trailer for the film on the site recently a...

New Releases, week of 4/27/13: Gangsta's Paradise Edition

This week's biggest release is arguably the re-re-re-re-re-release of Jurassic Park (IN 3D!!!), oh, there's new stuff this week also? Well...then the biggest new release is probably Gangster Squad, which is ironic since Matt ...

New Releases, week of 4/20/13: Djangowned Edition

Howdy, folks, and welcome to this week's new releases, a sort of pre-Tribeca reprieve for me. This week boasts two genre deconstructions. The biggie is Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, starring Jamie Foxx (who, as Nick p...

New Releases, week of 4/13/13: Historical Hot Dog Edition

It's another slow week on the DVD/Blu-ray release front. The most high-profile title is the disappointing Hyde Park on Hudson, which features Bill Murray as FDR. (More accurately, Bill Murray doing an impersonation of Cary Gr...

New Releases, week of 4/6/13: All Cleaned Up Edition

I know something major happened yesterday... Hmm... weird. Don't know what it was. Funny how that works. An oddly sparse week with new releases. The biggest thing by far is a re-release: The Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase O...

New Releases, week of 3/30/13: Fightin' Abe Edition

Today is the day that Steven Spielberg's Lincoln rolls onto DVD and Blu-ray. I think Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt are my favorite U.S. Presidents. Both were supreme badasses in different ways. Lincoln steered the count...

New Releases, week of 3/23/13: Les Little People Edition

Back from warm and awful nice Austin to the cold, jerk-filled New York and what do I see? Lots of major releases out this week on DVD and Blu-ray. (Worst thing about Austin by the way: limited free wifi at the airport. Damn y...

New Releases, week of 3/16/13: Rising Pie Edition

This week's arguably biggest home video release is Life of Pi (with its unfortunate two day early release date. Why not 3/14?) due to its baffling amount of Academy Awards (and I was sad when I realized it wasn't a docum...

New Releases, week of 3/9/13: Wreckx-n-Effect Edition

This week's biggest release by far is Wreck-It-Ralph, Disney's CG animated offering chockablock with retro gaming references. (Wreck-It-Ralph was also the title of my unproduced sequel to King Ralph.) Also new and notable thi...

New Releases, week of 3/2/13: Who is the Master Edition

Even though Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master didn't do well at the 2013 Academy Awards, it will always run Bartertown in my heart. If you watched Flixist's Google Hangout for the Oscars, you know we all expected Joaquin Phoe...

New Releases, week of 2/23/13: Jack Kirby Saves Edition

Ben Affleck's Argo is the big release of the week given all the momentum it has heading into the Oscars. Based on the true story of how Jack Kirby helped saved the day, Argo won Best Picture and Best Director at the 2013 BAFT...

Today is the day that Skyfall hits DVD and Blu-ray. Not only is the movie badass, it was declared Best British Film at the BAFTA Film Awards last weekend. Skyfall's release today is accompanied by a number of James Bond Blu-r...
