Netflix Will Continue its Television Show-like Series Releases with Something for the Kiddies

After our small discussion about “House of Cards” on episode 290 of The Cinecast, there is/was much chatter in the comments about the future of release schedules when it comes to Netflix original content and their episodic entertainment. “House of Cards” full season was released in one fell swoop so that viewers could just enjoy the...

DVD Triage: Jiro Dreams of Silent Houses and Deep Blue Seas

So I missed doing last week’s DVD Triage altogether, and what a mistake THAT was. There were a lot of interesting releases last week, compared to a relatively slow week this week. So I thought I’d just quickly list last week’s most interesting releases quickly here before getting into this week’s. Highly Recommended: The Turin Horse,...

DVD Triage: Margaret and Flynn Have an American Reunion

New Release Pick of the Week Margaret After sitting on a shelf for some eight years, Margaret finally got a very limited release last year, and despite a muddled trailer and mixed reaction, a whole raft of critics have emerged acclaiming it as a masterpiece, albeit a flawed and messy one – this release is a longer and presumably more coherent...

DVD Triage: Instant to the Rescue!

There is pretty much JACK SHIT in terms of New Releases this week, and not very much of interest in catalog releases, either aside from a few possibly-but-not-really interesting Blu-ray upgrades. So I exercised creative license and moved the Instant Watch section to the top, because they came through with first-of-the-month releases this time, and there are...

DVD Triage: The Wrath of 21 Artists

Trying a new thing with the title this week, instead of just the boring old date. Kinda silly, but yeah. There are quite a few releases this week, both new and catalog, big name and festival faves. Oscar films are out in force with both The Artist and foreign film nominee Bullhead making their way to DVD and Blu-ray. Meanwhile, Criterion has some tasty new...

DVD Triage: 19 June, 2012

Sorry about the horrific delay in this column this week! Between big projects at work, my husband’s car being in the shop, and trying to squeeze in some LA Film Fest screenings, my writing time was a bit cramped this week. Also, after lulling me into complacency with very few expirations over the last several weeks, Netflix is expiring a whole slew of...

DVD Triage: June 12

New Release Pick of the Week Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows I enjoyed the first Sherlock Holmes movie, but in the holiday rush never made it to see the sequel, though I intended to. Perhaps this might be a Redbox opportunity in the near future. After seeing Prometheus, I’m definitely curious to see more Noomi Rapace (though her bits in the trailer for...

DVD Triage: 5 June 2012

New Release Pick of the Week Breaking Bad: Season 4 I’ve only seen the first season of Breaking Bad myself, but I was incredibly impressed with that season and all the buzz I’ve heard about the subsequent seasons has also been outstanding, so I’m giving the season four set a sight-unseen endorsement. 2012 USA. Creator: Vince Gilligan....
