Transcendence Planning a trip to the local multiplex this weekend? Here are DVD Talk's reviews of the latest theatrical releases: Transcendence - an interesting premise with crucial social commentary hidden underneath the massive flood of issues, and pacing is incredibly slow making the film feel much longer than it actually is; Blue Ruin - one of the most unique revenge thrillers to come about in the past decade... this is a powerful feature that has put writer/director Jeremy Saulnier on the list of the top filmmakers to watch; Hank and Asha - Director James E. Duff puts us right in the middle of this love story as it develops, making it feel as important as one of our own relationships. Other recent films include: Draft Day, Oculus, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Noah, Nymphomaniac: Volume II, The Raid 2: Berandal, Muppets Most Wanted, Nymphomaniac: Volume I, Bad Words, Need for Speed, and Veronica Mars. Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.

Little House on the Prairie - Season One & The Pilot Movie TV on DVD remains very popular with more and more favorites being released.

DVD Savant This week the DVD Savant is attending the TCM Classic Film Festival, which means his posts will be a little sparse this week. To tide you over, here are some recent articles you may have missed: The Golden Voyage of Sinbad - The new HD transfer for this Ray Harryhausen's two production is good, and completely rescues the fire from the greenish murk of most previous versions; The Puppetoon Movie - Arnold Leibovit's theatrical collection of George Pal Puppetoon short subjects is just the headliner item on this two-disc collection. The 1987 feature contains a number of Puppetoons, but twenty more are included as extras;; and The Most Impressive Discs of 2013 - Now in its 13th year, here's a roundup of the best releases from last year... this is the armload of last year's discs the Savant would save if my house were sucked into an interdimensional black hole, and he could only make one trip to the shelves; Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

Ride Along Some pretty cool discs are being released this week. Check out these new titles: Ride Along [review] - main of this buddy cop comedy is the great chemistry created by Kevin Hart's manic energy and Ice Cube's stoic grouchiness; Breaking the Waves [review] - this film is director Lars von Trier's most emotionally substantial work; and Sleep, My Love [review] - Douglas Sirk's 1948 melodrama, melds noir aesthetics with what would become the famed filmmaker's signature storytelling to create a wonderful picture. Other reviews of note include Men in War [review] , Philomena [review], and Interior. Leather Bar. [review].

Draft Day Before you head off to the cinema this weekend, check out DVD Talk's reviews of the latest releases including: Draft Day - Kevin Costner stars as the GM of the Cleveland Browns in the first real surprise of 2014... it is a lot of fun; Oculus - an eerie film that defies expectations and delivers on both its scares and its intelligent sense of storytelling; Jodorowsky's Dune - a ripping yarn about director Alejandro Jodorowky's aborted mid-1970s adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune that deserves to be seen as more than just a niche film; and Under the Skin - Jonathan Glazer's adaptation of Michel Faber's violent science-fiction novel is a film that people will either love or hate, but it is the kind of movie that obsessive cinephiles could talk about for hours on end . Other recent films include: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Noah, Nymphomaniac: Volume II, The Raid 2: Berandal, Muppets Most Wanted, Nymphomaniac: Volume I, Bad Words, Need for Speed, Veronica Mars, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Wind Rises, and The Lego Movie (3D).
