Stalker: Criterion Collection Some great discs have been released in the last couple of weeks. Check out these new movies and shows: Stalker: Criterion Collection - Andrei Tarkovsky's 1979 masterpiece is beautifully shot and visually hypnotic… the kind of film that can really transfix viewers; The Hunting Party - a rough and gritty western that focuses on the dark side of frontier life... it isn't a pretty film but it is very well acted and quite gripping; and Star Crystal - poorly made and riddled with mistakes and bad acting, those who enjoy low budget monster movies, particularly those with an affinity for sci-fi settings and cheap effects, just might have a good time with it. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

The Zookeeper's Wife Check out the latest reviews that have been entered into the DVD Talk Review Database including: The Zookeeper's Wife - based on the book by the same name, this movie tells the true story of the Zabinski family, their zoo, and their heroic acts during the Nazi occupation of Warsaw, Poland during WWII; The Bridge at Remagen - partly this film is a big-scale epic, partly it's a more cynical, more intimate look at the human cost of warfare and it ends up being above average; and Curse of the Pink Panther - an honest attempt to continue the franchise after Peter Seller’s death, the movie doesn’t work because Blake Edwards and company can't seem to extract themselves from the shadow of Sellers' Inspector Clouseau.

Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In: The Complete Series Some great TV shows have made their way onto home video recently including: Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In: The Complete Series - the frenetic, chaotic comedy still earns laughs 50 years later… while there's a lot that hasn't aged well, including the stereotype jokes and many of the song and dance numbers, it's a wonderful time capsule of the era; and Bones: The Complete Series - a very solid and decent mystery … though there are some flaws, the program gets better as it goes and the characters are quite enjoyable.

T2 Trainspotting Several great movies and programs have come out recently, including a few that shouldn't be missed: T2 Trainspotting - smart, funny, and stylish, this is a great movie worthy of standing next to Trainspotting on a film fan's shelf; Madhouse - filmed stylishly with a smattering of shocking gore elements, Euro-horror completists will enjoy having a good-looking copy of this movie to enjoy on a late night; and Rise of the Planet of the Apes (4K) - a pleasant surprise when it hit theaters back in 2011, this film still holds up as one of the few reboots that doesn't dishonor the original movie upon which it is based. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Before I Fall Some cool discs have been reviewed over the past week. Check out these recent entries: Before I Fall - this movie offers an interesting, slightly more depressing, take on Groundhog Day as its heroine re-lives the final hours of her life to discover how her behavior affects others; 8 Bit Generation: Commodore Wars - a documentary chronicling the rise of Commodore computers, told through interviews with the people who were there… it tells the story in a rather jumbled manner but if you are interested in early computing this is well worth a look; and Dheepan - an excellent film that tells an important story and which explores a serious global issue.

South Park: The Complete Twentieth Season Some great TV shows have made their way onto home video recently including: South Park: The Complete Twentieth Season - this season Trey Parker and Matt Stone's massively popular show tackles the danger of nostalgia head-on (not to mention internet trolling, the 2017 Presidential election, and more) while attempting to build on the experimental serialized format that worked so brilliantly last year; and Decoy - this one-season undercover cop show from 1957-58 is an unusual, even groundbreaking series of exceptional interest.

Running on Empty Some pretty cool discs have made their way to store shelves over the past couple of weeks. Check out these new titles: Running on Empty - an excellent drama from director Sidney Lumet and writer Naomi Foner that stars River Phoenix, the film intriguingly grapples with universal issues of family bonding but under conditions that are uniquely fascinating; Hell In The Pacific - featuring two powerhouse lead actors (Lee Marvin and Toshiro Mifune) and their surprisingly low-key performances, John Boorman's early career highlight plays perfectly well almost 50 years later thanks to its universal themes, limited dialogue, and memorable characters; and The Autopsy of Jane Doe - enthusiastic performances from the minimal cast help to create an effective supernatural drama sprinkled with chilling moments.
