The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
This week tests if anyone is still excited about The Hobbit franchise as it offers the release of The Desolation of Smaug. I don’t think I’ve thought about the film since it came out. Also, Twilight Time is releasing a series of their limited edition titles. Sweet.

ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES
By Odin’s beard, the Anchorman sequel is finally hitting Blu-ray and DVD! And in three cuts, with one a super-sized gluttonous version. Oh, and 47 Ronin is coming out too, along with some catalog cuts from Universal.

There’s a lot of interesting foreign films hitting this week, but the must have is easily Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street (though sadly, it doesn’t come with the reported, but also complete BS four hour cut that was rumored).

This week brings Frozen to Blu-ray and DVD, which is funny because the film is still playing in theaters, and is in the top ten, box office-wise. There’s also some Oscar also-rans hitting as well, and some great Criterion catalog stuff.

This week offers one of last year’s best movies that was sadly ignored by the academy and never got a particularly wide release. Also a film that shockingly got an Oscar nomination, a an arthouse flop, and some great catalog titles.

It’s like they knew! This week’s new DVD and Blu-ray releases is bringing best picture winner 12 Years a Slave to shelves fresh off its win. Whether that means a better special edition is released in a couple months is unknown, but seems likely.

There are mostly new releases this week, and it’s the television seasons that are the must buys. The Criterion Collection is releasing the first title they’re going to intentionally double dip, while one of the most underrated releases of 2013 hits the digital format.

This week’s DVD and Blu-ray releases offers mostly newer titles, but there’s a Criterion release, and one of the best picture nominees, and some turkeys (literally, there’s a film about turkeys).

Most of the new releases this week were films that disappeared from theaters at a very quick clip. Such is the first real week of January. Fortunately, Criterion is bringing an A title for those itching to purchase something.

This week brings Fast and Furious 6 to home video, a release that only reminds of the recent loss of Paul Walker. It also brings Despicable Me 2, the second biggest film of the summer (and the year to date, it should get passed by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire). That and some Disney classics make for a good week of home video.
