6 December 2011 12:29 PM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: March 5, 2012

Price: DVD $59.99, Blu-ray $79.98

Studio: HBO Home Entertainment/Warner Home Video

Sean Bean sits atop the Iron Throne -- for now -- in HBO's Game of Thrones.

Game of Thrones, HBO’s elaborate, fully rigged primetime fantasy television series, was an instant hit upon its broadcast premiere in April2011.

Based on George R. R. Martin‘s best-selling series of novels A Song of Ice and Fire, the sweeping fantasy saga is set in the mythical land of Westeros, where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime. It’s here that two powerful families — royal clans of kings and queens, knights and renegades, and liars and noblemen — engage in a deadly cat-and-mouse game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. As betrayal, lust, intrigue and supernatural forces shake all parts of the land, their bloody struggle for the Iron Throne will have unforeseen and far-reaching consequences. »

DVD Playhouse—April 2011

By

Allen Gardner

Hereafter (Warner Bros.) Clint Eastwood’s spiritual thriller follows a trio of characters whose seemingly disparate paths converge: Matt Damon as a blue collar Joe who tries to fight against his psychic powers that see “the other side,” Cecile de France as a journalist who somehow survives the tsunami that crushed Indonesia, and a London schoolboy (Frankie and George McLaren) who seeks answers after losing his twin brother. Like all of Eastwood’s films, the narrative construction is tight as a drum, with solid work by all involved. That said, “solid” would have to be the operative word to describe the proceedings here, as well as “unremarkable” and “uninvolving” on an emotional level. Perhaps we expect too much when we see Clint’s name on a film these days, but that’s the flip side of being one of the best. Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. »

New Release: Red Planet and Soldier Blu-ray

30 March 2011 4:07 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Science-fiction fans, Warner Home Video is debuting two movies on  high-definition Blu-ray for you on July 26: 2000 film Red Planet and 1998’s Soldier.

Soldier

Both have decent casts, but our favorite of the two is Soldier. The futuristic R-rated movie stars Kurt Russell (Grindhouse: Death Proof) as a soldier trained since he was a child to be a killer. When he’s left for dead by genetically engineered replacements (including Jason Scott Lee, Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story), Russell is taken in by a peaceful community and becomes their last hope when the same soldiers come back with orders to destroy. Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and Connie Nielsen (A Shine of Rainbows) also star.

The simple story shows that a soldier’s heart is never changed, no matter how much brain-washing, and the movie, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (Avp: Alien vs. Predator) features a nice score by Joel NcNeely. »

New this Week: ‘Limitless,’ ‘Paul’ and ‘The Fighter (DVD)’

16 March 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Hitting movie theaters this weekend:

LimitlessBradley Cooper, Anna Friel, Abbie Cornish, Robert De Niro

The Lincoln LawyerMatthew McConaughey, Marisa Tomei, Ryan Phillippe

Paul – Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Seth Rogen

Movie of the Week

Limitless

The Stars: Bradley Cooper, Anna Friel, Abbie Cornish, Robert De Niro

The Plot: A copywriter (Cooper) discovers a top-secret drug which gives him super-human abilities.

The Buzz: Until recently, I couldn’t stand Bradley Cooper — and no, it wasn’t his role in A-Team that won me over, it was, hearkening back a decade, his role in the television series ‘Alias.’ Yes, I’m a total johnny-come-lately when it comes to that show, but I love it, and I love Bradley Cooper in it. He can act, I was surprised to see. His success with ‘Alias’ ultimately launched his career, and now, ten years later, here he is approaching A-list status, starring in a fine-looking action film, »

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray: The Fighter, Hereafter, The Switch, and More

16 March 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. The Fighter [*Warning: Obvious spoiler ahead*] Great care was paid to ensure that The Fighter be as authentic a true story as possible, which is also why its ending feels a tad misguided. Was it necessary to close the film on a note of uplifting triumph? That's the expected conclusion, certainly, and it's not as though there's ever a moment where The Fighter seems like it might be veering down a path that hasn't already been laid out for it in countless other sports films. But the humanity of the picture stems from its acrid family dynamics, and it's in those moments that the film transcends the genre in which it's forced to reside. In fact, so much time is dedicated »

Your Weekly Source for Blu-Ray and DVD Release News

What could be better than a young Nicole Kidman in classics 80′s era flickdom? Well, lots… but, we’re talking apples and oranges here. BMX Bandits is only one of the schlocky titles to go Blu this week, the other is Roger Corman’s Sharktopus, a modern schlockterpiece that was spawned from the recent giant mutant killer animal revival on DVD and the SyFy Channel. If you sit on the serious/schlock fence, perhaps you’ll appreciate the emergence of the Harry Potter franchise finally conjuring itself onto Blu. If your tastes are a bit more refined, I would suggest one of Criterion’s new Blu titles: Louis Malle’s Au Revoir Les Enfants — set during WWII, about a French boarding school run by priests and a friendship that could risk the entire school’s safety; or, Edward Yang’s Yi Yi »
