Looks like we've finally left the Oscar season as this week's home video releases range from interesting to, well, Ride Along. First off, there's Philomena, Wrong Cops, and The Secret Life of Papa John's KFC's Cinnabon's...

New Releases, week of 2/8/14: Movie Buyers Club Edition

As the best of 2013 continue to release on home video, we've got another particularly interesting week. First off is Dallas Buyers Club (a film filled with such great performances, it made my Top 15 of 2013 list), then About ...

Like last week, it's time to play catch up as the best and brightest of 2013 continue to hit home video. We have Captain Phillips, which Tam Honks seems to be wonderful in, Bad Milo!, the only film about a butt demon this wee...

New Releases, week of 1/11/14: Run Away Already Edition

This week's home video releases are full of smaller films that may or many not be that great. There's the one that stars Justin Timerlake and Ben Affleck, Runner Runner, there's one with a big ass spider, Big Ass Spider! (yes...

New Releases, week of 12/21/13: The Lone D Edition

This week's home video releases involve a bunch of movies we regrettably did not get to review here on Flixist. First off there's a movie only Liz saw apparently since it tanked so bad, The Lone Ranger. Secondly, there're two...

New Releases, week of 12/14/13: #FAMILY Edition

It's a big week for home video releases. First of all there's the elephant in the room. Fast & Furious 6 hits home video after the tragic death of Paul Walker. The silver lining in all of this is when you buy it (and...

New Releases, week of 12/7/13: Sequelitis Edition

This week's home video releases involve two big sequels: one revered, one reviled. The Wolverine (and subsequently a re-release of the entire X-Men series so far) hits DVD and Blu-ray while the less said about The Smurfs 2, t...

New Releases, week of 11/30/13: T-RED-ing Lightly Edition

This week's biggest home video release isn't a movie, it's a TV show. Breaking Bad finished its final run of episodes a few months back and now it's finally available on home video. I haven't seen the final episode yet, so I ...

New Releases, week of 10/19/13: Jaeger Bomb Edition

Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim hits stores today, meaning the movie may turn a decent profit yet on top of the Chinese box office returns. By far, this is the biggest new release this week, with The Heat starring Sandra Bul...

New Releases, week of 9/21/13: World War Hee Hee Edition

The big new release of the week is the in-name-only adaptation of World War Z. Once maligned and expected to tank, the movie wound up being profitable and there's talk of a sequel. Other big new things this week include Sofia...

New Releases, week of 9/14/13: Star Trek Into Extras BS

The big new release this week is Star Trek Into Darkness, though you may feel a little ripped off if you buy it. And no, I'm not referring to the derivative storytelling or the fan-fiction vibe of the script. You see, the bon...

New Releases, week of 8/24/13: Starzinger Edition

When I was a kid, I used to watch the same three or four episodes of Spaceketeers (aka Starzinger) on a VHS tape over and over again. I never knew how the series ended or where the story was going to go, but I just kept watch...

New Releases, week of 7/27/13: Hypnotwixt Edition

New Releases, week of 7/13/13: Street Trash Edition

Of all things that are coming out on Blu-ray today, there's the bats**t crazy cult film Street Trash. There are melting bodies, exploding homeless people, scenes of extreme violence, lots of gore, and something to offend ever...

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...
