Kickstart This! That Guy Dick Miller.

You know that guy? That guy in the film about the thing. The guy who was also in that other film about that thing. You've seen his mug in numerous films but probably don't know his name. He's been a killer sculptor, been murdered by a Terminator and pestered by Gremlins. He's a professional "That Guy" by the name of Dick Miller and has over 170 film and TV credits under his name.American Grindhouse director Elijah Drenner was making a bonus feature documentary for a German DVD release of Roger Corman's War Of The Satellites and was doing a bit on Miller and his part in the film and realized that this prolific actor deserved a full feature length documentary that would span his life as...

DVD and Blu-Ray Releases: January 18th - Buried in a Death Race Too

Does claustrophobia set in easily for you? Then you may want to steer clear of the video aisles of your favorite stores as last year's intense buried alive flick (starring the future Green Lantern) is coming on home.

Being that this is another light week release wise, you don't have too many other options. That is unless you're in the mood for high speed chases featuring coffin-looking vehicles that could end up causing just as much anxiety.

Your Weekly Source for Blu-Ray and DVD Release News

Perhaps the most anticipated release this week is Rodrigo Cortes’ Buried, a groundbreaking indie thriller starring Ryan Reynolds who wakes up to find himself buried alive, but much more is at play in this ingenious film. David Michod’s Animal Kingdom — about a 17-year old coping with life in a criminal family – was also a festival favorite on the indie scene; Freakonomics is an anthology from six innovative documentary filmmakers that explores the hidden side of everything; and two classics from director Samuel Fuller — Naked Kiss, a film noir about a prostitute who finds redemption; and Shock Corridor, about a journalist who commits himself to a mental institution to solve a strange murder — get the Blu-Ray treatment from Criterion Collection.
