A pair of crime comedies, one brand new and one a classic, overshadow the rest of this week’s Blu-ray release list while a sequel no one wanted, some art films, and a whole bunch of TV box sets also vie for your attention.
This is a good week to be a fan of cult movies from the 1980s. It’s also a good week to be a fan of terrible animated movies based on videogames, but I assume that fewer of you will want to admit that.
Despite appearances, new Blu-ray discs will indeed be released this week. You’d be forgiven for not noticing.
Let me warn you in advance that this August does not look like a very exciting month for new Blu-rays releases. On the other hand, at least there are a lot of them. By volume alone, you might find something of interest.
I’ve been accused, on an occasion or two, of using these Highlights posts to shit all over the new movies being released on home video each week. I don’t think that’s entirely fair. However, when the Blu-ray gods give us a week li...
One of the biggest movies of the year hits home video this week. It also happens to be one of the worst reviewed and most widely disliked. Will that stop it from racking up huge sales on Blu-ray and DVD? I guess we’ll find out soo...
This week’s Blu-ray releases are tinged with sadness. The most promising new title available reminds us of the recent loss of its talented young star.
Welcome back from the July 4th festivities. We hope you got your fill of parades, backyard barbecues, and watching stuff blow up while classical music plays. As is so typical during holiday weeks, you shouldn’t expect any major ne...
A part of me is grateful for slow periods like this. I don’t have a lot of money to spend on Blu-rays right now anyway. Regardless, I still covet at least one disc this week.
June started off with a big rush of new Blu-rays, including at least a couple of must-own titles. As if to give you a chance to catch your breath, the release calendar slows down dramatically this week.
Looking strictly at volume, we have another big week for new Blu-ray releases. Perhaps no single title is quite as compelling as what last week offered, but you might find an item or two of interest if you look.
A couple of exceptions aside, this May wasn’t the most exciting month for Blu-ray releases. June attempts to make up for that right away with a huge slate of new discs that should have at least a few really good ones in there.
