This Week in Blu-ray

It’s time for another day late edition of This Week in Blu-ray. I might as well just move this column to Wednesday, as I’m so often cramming to get releases from certain studios — who will remain nameless (Fox) — that send out their review material at the absolute last minute. That said, I’m glad they decided to send their releases this week, as they earned a Pick of the Week with one of the best shows on television. Also included in this week’s rundown: we fly into the danger zone, I admit to not hating something that screams Disney Channel, Criterion drops to juicy releases and Hugh Laurie is still so dreamy. All that and more in this week’s saucy selection of high definition accoutrement. Sons of Anarchy: Season Three With the seemingly obvious exception of Breaking Bad, there may be no better drama on television than Kurt Sutter’s Sons of Anarchy.

This Week in DVD

Welcome back to our weekly look at new DVD releases coming to a virtual shelf near you! Lots of good stuff this week worth a rental at least and possibly a buy depending on your tastes.

This week’s releases include In a Better World, Wrecked, Norwegian Ninja, True Adolescents, The Perfect Host, and more. As always, if you see something you like, click on the image to buy it. If a Tree Falls: The Story of the Earth Liberation Front In 2005 federal and state law enforcement agents across the country conducted simultaneous arrests of past and current members of the Earth Liberation Front. The men and women were charged with a series of arsons that had occurred throughout the Pacific Northwest over the previous decade. This insightful and balanced documentary explores the case from both sides with a focus on one of the defendants, Daniel McGowan. There’s no question of guilt or innocence, but instead it’s the charge of terrorism they face that fuels the debate. Should these fires (in which not a single person was killed or injured) be comparable to 9/11 or the Oklahoma City federal building bombing? It’s thought provoking and challenging, and proves that there aren’t always easy answers when […]
