April 9, 2011 - Our newest review offers a comprehensive look at this week's Tron & Tron: Legacy 2-Movie Collection. Disney's innovative 1982 sci-fi film journeys with programmer Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) inside the world of a computer, where programs are enslaved by the powers that be. The high-budgeted 2010 sequel centers on Flynn's adult son (Garrett Hedlund) who in his search for his long-missing father finds himself transported to a dark alternate reality with comparable games and races. The former makes its Blu-ray debut in a loaded set adding two new featurettes to its robust slate of retained 2002 DVD extras (including a 90-minute making-of documentary).

Teen Wolf Blu-ray Review I Love You Phillip Morris DVD Review Taxi Driver Blu-ray Review

In our latest review, we take an in-depth look at Teen Wolf, the 1985 Michael J. Fox comedy shot immediately before and released immediately after Back to the Future. Fox plays Scott Howard, a basketball-playing high school student going through some changes. Discovering that he's a werewolf has instant consequences for him and his team. We cover MGM's recent Blu-ray Disc, which includes the film's original trailer and a sneak peek at MTV's upcoming "Teen Wolf" TV series. Read the full review.

It's Tuesday! This week's new releases include Jim Carrey's gay con man comedy I Love You Phillip Morris, the Blu-ray debut of Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver, and, to be covered soon, the various combinations of Disney's visual-driven sci-fi action flicks Tron and Tron: Legacy. Click here for more on these and today's other new discs.

April 4, 2011 - Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor star as prison inmates who fall for each other in the bizarrely true-life comedy I Love You Phillip Morris. After many delays, this R-rated indie directed by the writers of Bad Santa received limited theatrical release last December. It comes to DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow from Lionsgate, with an audio commentary, deleted scenes, a making-of featurette, and 3 trailers. Read on...

April 3, 2011 - Our newest review looks at this week's Blu-ray debut of Taxi Driver. Martin Scorsese's esteemed 1976 film stars Robert De Niro as Travis Bickle, a lonesome and unstable Vietnam vet turned New York City cabbie. Co-starring Cybill Shepherd, Albert Brooks, Peter Boyle, Harvey Keitel, and an Oscar-nominated pre-teen Jodie Foster, this gritty drama is rarely forgotten in any cinematic retrospective. Sony's single-disc Blu-ray retains all the bonus features from the movie's in-print 2-Disc Collector's Edition DVD and adds Scorsese and screenwriter Paul Schrader's Criterion Collection laserdisc commentary. Other extras include a 70-minute making-of documentary, stories from 1970s New York cab drivers, storyboards, photo galleries, and an assortment of featurettes. Don't miss our full review.

April 1, 2011 - Paramount Home Entertainment will make an upcoming spring weekend a little more special for tween girls with the Friday, May 13th DVD and Blu-ray combo pack debut of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, the record-setting documentary on the teenaged singer's rise to fame.

Hair Flip." Read the full announcement.

This is no April Fool: Gnomeo & Juliet, the Touchstone-branded, G-rated, computer-animated comedy will come to video on May 24th.

Black Swan DVD Review The Ten Commandments DVD Review

March 31, 2011 - Sony's press release for The Green Hornet lays out the contents of the three editions in which this recent superhero film will come to home video on May 3rd. Seth Rogen stars as a self-made crime fighter and Jay Chou is his intelligent sidekick in an action-comedy co-starring Cameron Diaz and Inglourious Basterds' Chistoph Waltz. Written by Rogen and his Pineapple Express, Superbad collaborator Evan Goldberg, this long-developed is directed by Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind's Michel Gondry. Read all about its forthcoming DVD, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD combo pack debuts right here.

With an Oscar win, her first child, and five new movies, 2011 looks like the year of Natalie Portman. In a project much different from our latest review subject, Portman plays Ashton Kutcher's casual partner in the romantic comedy No Strings Attached. Directed by Ghostbusters' Ivan Reitman and co-starring Lake Bell, Greta Gerwig, Mindy Kaling, Ludacris, Kevin Kline, and Cary Elwes, this $70 million-grossing film will come to DVD and Blu-ray combo pack on May 10th.

March 30, 2011 - Our newest review looks at The Ten Commandments. Cecil B. DeMille's Biblical epic was the highest-grossing film of its decade, earning the modern-day equivalent of over $1 billion domestically. In the role that established him as one of Hollywood's most authoritative leading men, Charlton Heston plays Moses, prince of Egypt and leader of Israel. In his mission to free Hebrew slaves, the prophet unleashes the power of God before unmoved Pharaoh Rameses (Yul Brynner), resulting in plagues, the parting of the Red Sea, and the creation of titular tablets. Paramount's new 2-disc DVD boasts a stunning new restoration, while retaining an audio commentary by Katherine Orrison, three trailers from over the years, and a newsreel short on the film's New York premiere.

Coyote Looney Tunes short Rabid Rider, the memory-testing game "Are You Smarter Than the Average Bear?", 14 making-of shorts spread around an interactive Jellystone Park, and a cartoon/movie mash-up featurette. Our full review.

March 23, 2011 - Raro Video's Fernando Di Leo Crime Collection gathers four 1970s movies from the Italian writer/director who collaborated with Sergio Leone on his trilogy of Clint Eastwood westerns.

March 21, 2011 - Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, and Jack Nicholson star in How Do You Know, the new romantic comedy written, directed, and produced by James L. Brooks (Terms of Endearment, As Good As It Gets). Unexpectedly cut from the US national softball team, Witherspoon's athlete finds herself having to choose between a major league pitcher (Wilson) and a businessman being investigated for fraud (Rudd).

March 17, 2011 - Just posted: Upcoming Cover Art for the DVD and Blu-ray debuts of The Green Hornet, Gnomeo & Juliet, I Am Number Four, and Disney Channel's upcoming Lemonade Mouth. Check it out.

Together in Venice, they dodge bullets from Russian gangsters. From the writer/director of The Lives of Others and the writers of The Usual Suspects and Gosford Park, this Golden Globe-nominated domestic underperformer comes to DVD next Tuesday from Sony with outtakes, unused animated titles, two featurettes, and a director's commentary. Read on...

March 16, 2011 - Hereafter, the latest film directed by Clint Eastwood, tells the stories of a San Francisco man (Matt Damon) reluctant to use his gift as a psychic medium, a French journalist (Cιcile De France) changed by a near-death experience, and a young British boy with questions about the identical twin he's been separated from.

The Fighter DVD Review 127 Hours DVD Review Burlesque DVD Review

Recent DVD and Blu-ray Reviews:
• The Switch - Jason Bateman plays a New Yorker who interferes with the artificial insemination of his best friend (played by Jennifer Aniston). Patrick Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, and Juliette Lewis also appear in this PG-13 comedy from the directors of Blades of Glory. Disney's final Miramax Films release makes its overdue home video debut from new Miramax partner Lionsgate. We look at the Blu-ray version, which includes a making-of featurette, bloopers, and a 25-minute section of deleted & alternate scenes.
• "Who Do You Think You Are?": Season 1 - NBC series follows celebrities as they compile their genealogies, traveling around the world and consulting historians and public records. Acorn Media's widescreen 2-disc, 7-episode DVD fleshes out the family trees of Sarah Jessica Parker, Emmitt Smith, Lisa Kudrow (one of the show's executive producers), Matthew Broderick, Brooke Shields, Susan Sarandon, and Spike Lee.
• The Fighter - This drama tells the true story of working class boxer Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg) and his large Massachusetts family, including his drug-addled older brother Dicky Eklund (Christian Bale) and his tough mother/manager (Melissa Leo). Bale and Leo won Oscars for their supporting performances, and Amy Adams (playing love interest Charlene) was nominated along with the screenplay and director David O. Russell. Paramount's DVD includes a Russell audio commentary and a half-hour documentary on the acclaimed film's creation.
• The Miracle Maker (Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack) - 2000 movie uses stop motion and 2-D animation to tell the story of Jesus Christ. Ralph Fiennes voices the Nazarene in this Welsh-Russian co-production that played theatrically in Europe but made its US debut airing Easter Sunday on ABC. Lionsgate's 2-disc set includes a filmmakers' audio commentary, a half-hour making-of documentary, a storyboard-to-film comparison, a quiz, and a Gospel verses playback mode.
• Sharktopus - Syfy and legendary B-movie producer Roger Corman provide a new movie about a genetically-engineered shark-octopus hybrid being cultivated into a military weapon. When the creature breaks loose, a scientist (Eric Roberts) sends his brainy daughter (Sara Malakul Lane) and a pricey ex-employee (Kerem Bursin) to retrieve it, but not before it starts feasting on the scantily-clad people of Mexico's Puerto Vallarta. On DVD from Anchor Bay, this TV movie is joined by an audio commentary by Corman and his wife Julie and a trailer.
• 127 Hours - Director Danny Boyle's follow-up to 2008's Best Picture winner Slumdog Millionaire tells the remarkable true story of young canyoneer Aron Ralston (portrayed by James Franco) who fights to stay alive after his arm gets trapped by an 800-pound boulder. Nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture, this harrowing drama is joined by over a half-hour of deleted scenes (most notably, a 22-minute alternate ending) and an audio commentary by Boyle and two of his colleagues.
• "The Walking Dead": The Complete First Season - AMC's original series depicts life in a zombie apocalypse, with our focus remaining on a sheriff's deputy and other Southern survivors. Adapted from a comic book series and developed by The Shawshank Redemption's director Frank Darabont, the series will return in the fall. Anchor Bay's 2-disc DVD includes the first 6 episodes plus making-of featurettes and behind-the-scenes shorts.
• Morning Glory - Rachel McAdams plays a workaholic hired to help a long-running morning news show combat dwindling viewership. Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton play her clashing anchors, while Patrick Wilson and Jeff Goldblum co-star as love interest and boss, respectively. This comedy is directed by Notting Hill's Roger Michell and written by The Devil Wears Prada's Aline Brosh McKenna. It comes to DVD from Paramount with an audio commentary and a deleted scene featuring "Modern Family"'s Ty Burrell.
• The Clowns (I Clowns) - Federico Fellini's 1970 "docu-comedy" is as much about his crew as the legendary old circus performers they're tracking down. Raro Video's first US DVD includes a 50-page companion book, a new 42-minute video essay, and Marriage Agency, Fellini's segment for the 1953 omnibus feature Love in the City.
• Colin Mochrie & Brad Sherwood: Two Man Group - One-hour improvised comedy special from the "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" performers includes pantomime, puppeteering, sound effects, and other audience-enlisting activities. Image's DVD includes two behind-the-scenes shorts with the stars.

Featured here are adaptations of Jules Verne and Victor Hugo plus the tales of Don Quixote and Robin Hood.
• Bambi: Diamond Edition Blu-ray + DVD - Walt Disney's fifth animated film and now his namesake studio's third entry in the Diamond Edition line. Nearly seventy years after its debut, this mature and atmospheric story of a deer, adapted from Felix Salten's novel, continues to delight. Our exhaustive review fills you in on what's new, what's dropped, and how this 1 Blu-ray, 1 DVD combo pack compares to the film's 2005 Platinum Edition DVD. Our two-page review includes film and bonus feature clips. (Related Interview: Donnie Dunagan, the voice of Bambi)
• Faster - Former wrestler Dwayne Johnson returns to action playing an ex-con tracking down those who set him up and killed his brother. Billy Bob Thornton, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Carla Gugino, and Maggie Grace co-star. Sony's DVD includes an alternate ending and deleted scenes, introduced by director George Tillman, Jr. (Men of Honor).
• Burlesque - In her film debut, Christina Aguilera plays an Iowa waitress trying to make it as a Los Angeles entertainer. Written and directed by Steven Antin, this original musical co-stars Cher, Stanley Tucci, Cam Gigandet, Kristen Bell, Alan Cumming and Julianne Hough. Sony's DVD includes an Antin commentary, a blooper reel, six uncut song performances (including a deleted number), and an alternate opening.
• Megamind: Mega Double DVD Pack - A bald blue alien supervillain (voiced by Will Ferrell) gets his wish of conquering his nemesis, Metro Man (Brad Pitt). DreamWorks Animation's superhero satire co-stars Tina Fey and Jonah Hill as a news reporter and her cameraman, who are at the center of the change sweeping over Metro City.
