Pacific Rim, The Heat, Maniac, and more on DVD/Blu-ray

Django Unchained, Repo Man, Dragon (Wu Xia), and more on DVD/Blu-ray
Apr 16
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... read

Hyde Park on Hudson, Down the Shore, Gate of Hell, and more on DVD/Blu-ray

Lincoln, The Comedy, Killing Them Softly, and more on DVD/Blu-ray
Mar 26
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... read

The Hobbit, Les Miserables, Zero Dark Thirty, and more on DVD/Blu-ray
Mar 19

Life of Pi, Rise of the Guardians, Sound City and more on DVD/Blu-ray
Mar 12

The Master, Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Holy Motors, and more on DVD/Blu-ray
Feb 26
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... read

Argo, Anna Karenina, Monster Squad, and more on DVD/Blu-ray
