New on DVD & Blu-ray: December 18, 2013

December often feels less like an occasion for gift-getting than madcap catch-up on 2013's more overlooked films. This week's DVD/Blu-Ray lineup couldn't offer a more seasoned buffet in that department, filled top-to-bottom with films you've…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: December 10, 2013

There are plenty of new Blu-Ray offerings this week, but there are only a few worth getting particularly excited about (and as usual, they are Criterion releases). I tried to dig for some more picks…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: November 13, 2013

Now seems like an ideal time to start talking about Christmas gifts, and not the predictable Man of Steel or Turbo fodder that boys and tikes will be clamoring for their parents to get them.…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: November 8, 2013

A couple days delayed, but this week's batch of DVD and Blu-Ray releases is an unexpectedly rewarding one. The 2013 releases are wearing somewhat thin, the lackluster droppings of the summer season, but the week…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: October 29, 2013

We are now entering the time of year that tends to bring two kinds of DVD and Blu-Ray releases: over-priced editions of Summer movies that did well at the Box Office being sold to parents…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: October 22, 2013

This is the time of year when everything starts to get overwhelming. There are too many movies on DVD and Blu-Ray to catch up and each weekend offers more than one film in theatres that…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: October 1, 2013

October is actually a really strong month for theatrical releases and lots of television shows have returned to the air, so getting new movies on DVD and Blu-Ray is probably not everyone's top priority. However,…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: September 24, 2013

Another week chocked full of excellent 2013 releases, including an additional one now available on Netflix Instant Streaming. The fall DVD slate sure is a bounty of indie rewards, particularly as the mainstream theatrical releases…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: September 18, 2013

Now this is a stellar week for DVD/Blu-Ray releases, so much so that I couldn't bring myself to cut one of the six worthwhile titles this week loose. Filled to the brim with fabulous indie…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: September 3, 2013

It's about as stunning a week as ever to catch up on the smaller darlings of 2013. Things slip through the cracks in the theatrical scramble, with even the Before Midnights, Fruitvale Stations and Bling…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: August 27, 2013

We have another solid week of DVD releases, by my estimations anyway, with films from Venice, Cannes and Criterion, the third of which has released two titles worth checking out this week. It makes the…

New on DVD and Blu-Ray: August 20, 2013

Traditionally August is light on exciting theatrical releases with plenty of independent and foreign films from early 2013 hitting DVD and Blu-Ray for the first time. This year the opposite seems to be the case…

New on DVD and Blu-Ray: August 6, 2013

Oh boy, this week! If you've been enduring the DVD dry spell that has been this summer, this week will be all you've been waiting for and more. We have not one, two, but three…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: July 23, 2013

If it's been some time since we've told you what's good on DVD and Blu-Ray, that's mostly because there usually isn't much during the summer season. The emphasis of these months is very much on…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: June 11, 2013

Some of the early films from 2013 are making their Blu-Ray debut this week. Unfortunately they are the films that had a short turnaround time because they're intended to make more money, and we have…

New on DVD & Blu-Ray: May 21, 2013

This certainly isn't the most bustling week of DVD/Blu-Ray releases we've had, as is often the case with the early months of summer. We're still picking turds up off the floor of January and February,…

New on DVD and Blu-Ray: May 7, 2013

Ready for a summer season of sitting on your ass and watching movies? This week's got you covered, not only with film options, but with entire television seasons ready to eat away the dry hours…
