Criterion is really cranking them out this week, while two of the best films of the year also hit Blu-ray this week, along with one of Netflix’s most buzzed-about shows. Not a bad haul.

This week’s new releases include one of the better films from earlier this year, one of the most disappointing, and some of the most talked about television so far, while the classics include some great Criterion releases, and some classic Spike Lee films.

For those who were waiting for home video to watch the remake of RoboCop, your time has come! It, the complete series of Breaking Bad and new 4K masters of the classic Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns are the most attention-getting of this week’s new releases.

If you love movies, right now it’s all about what’s going on in theaters, because it’s been deadly slow on the home video front, though this week brings two Criterion editions that will have fans salivating.

This week offers a number of films from earlier this year, which either weren't all that good, or didn't find their audience. Maybe Pompeii was better than you'd think. Maybe. That's possible.

Twin Peaks died for our sins. Maybe that's an overstatement as the show, which became one of the most buzzed about first seasons in television history, was sacrificed when ABC didn't know what to do with it, and wanted to wrap up the mystery of who killed Laura Palmer and in doing so destroyed creators David Lynch and Mark Frost plans and then the network shuffled it...

The big movie release this week is Her, which won the Oscar for best original screenplay, while there’s also some good television to pick up, and at least a Criterion release. It’s slow going these days in terms of quality DVD and Blu-ray releases.

Again, we’ve got another week where catalog rules everything around me (CREAM, get the money, dollar dollar bill ya’ll), but there’s some great titles to pick up among them, including one of Sam Fuller’s best movies. New: Veronica Mars: The kickstarter project that got a theatrical (and VOD) release, Veronica Mars got the band back together...

Wow, this week features a couple of January releases that tanked, and some interesting catalog selections. It’s slim pickings, but that happens as Hollywood is gearing up to start the big summer season.

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).
