At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.
New on DVD and Blu-ray
David Ayer's WWII action/drama boasts an all-star cast that includes Brad Pitt, Shia Labeouf, and Logan Lerman as members of a tank crew headed right into Nazi territory. Definitely for fans of gruesome war movies, so if that doesn't whet your whistle, keep on rolling.
Guillermo del Toro produced this animated family film inspired by Mexican folkore. Although it got mixed reviews from critics, the animation alone makes it worth a look. And, hey, don't you need a break from "Frozen"?
"Downton Abbey: Season 5"
If you haven't caught up to all the "Upstairs Downstairs"-style drama in this PBS series, well, now's your chance. If you're just a diehard collector, the three-disc Blu-ray comes with 40 minutes of supplemental material. »

London's premiere horror festival will be making its way to its second home, to bring a weekend of chills and thrills to Glasgow! Celebrating its 10th year in the north in conjunction with the Glasgow Film Festival, this fabulous FrightFest weekend will include three world premieres, as well as some European and UK premieres.I've only seen two of the new features, but can recommend both Wyrmwood, a bonkers, rough-and-ready zombie film from Australia, and [Rec]4: Apocalypse, a fun tie-up to the legendary zombie franchise. I can also recommend the retro screening of Mario Bava's Blood and Black Lace, an early Giallo classic.Other interesting-looking titles include Brad Anderson's Eliza Graves, and 88 starring Katherine Isabelle.Full disclosure, I am the shorts programmer for FrightFest, and have two...

Before going into Action Comics #1, which was one of the big launch titles of the DC New 52, I’d like to preface things by saying that this is the first article in a nineteen part series looking at the themes, characters, and general storytelling of Grant Morrison’s both beloved and maligned run on Action Comics. I’m pushing for a weekly release schedule, but that probably won’t happen. Without further ado, here is my review of one of the most valuable and influential comics of all time.
Action Comics #1 truly lives up to its name. Both Superman and his reporter alias Clark Kent are proactive people who do what is right and fight for justice no matter what. The opening page shows Superman shaking down corrupt »
