Gunsmoke: One Man's Justice More TV shows have made their way on to DVD and Blu-ray, and DVD Talk has got them covered. Check out our reviews of the newest TV releases including: Gunsmoke: One Man's Justice - this 1994 TV-movie, James Arness's swan song as Matt Dillon not to mention the final, absolute end of Gunsmoke itself, is a modest but very worthwhile effort; and The Tubes - Live At German Television: The Musikladen Concert 1981 - a must-have for any fan of The Tubes, with its nearly archival picture quality and memorable performance of the band which hasn't had much other material on home video before.

Notable Releases: Bad Day at Black Rock and The IT Crowd
Bad Day at Black Rock Some pretty cool discs have made their way to store shelves over the past couple of weeks. Check out these new titles: Bad Day at Black Rock - featuring a standout performance by Spencer Tracy, a dependably good supporting cast, John Sturges' quiet but tense movie is a nearly flawless exercise in slow-burning suspense, revealing bits and pieces of its core mystery as the film unfolds; and The IT Crowd: The Internet is Coming - a legitimate series finale to the wonderful British comedy, this show has its moments that remind you why the show earned its fanbase, but it's often just going through the motions in revisiting the series' beloved characters.

New Reviews: The Dressmaker, The 3 Worlds of Gulliver, and For the Love of Spock
The Dressmaker Some great DVD and Blu-ray reviews have been added to the the DVD Talk Review Database recently including: The Dressmaker - a thrillingly unpredictable experience, blending up a number of disparate genres into something that is both fresh and a somewhat traditional crowd-pleaser; The 3 Worlds of Gulliver - boasting two short stop-motion set pieces by special effects artist Ray Harryhausen, this film is fun for kids as well as adults willing to overlook the screenplay's shortcomings; and For the Love of Spock - featuring a well-balanced collection of personal interviews and licensed clips from Leonard's career (and no shortage of family photos), it's an extremely intimate, funny, touching, and heartfelt tribute that fans of all ages will enjoy.

Notable Releases: Deepwater Horizon and His Girl Friday
Deepwater Horizon There are some new titles coming out that might make it worth a trip to the video store. Check out these recent releases: Deepwater Horizon - Peter Berg's film is a dramatic recreation of the April 20, 2010 oil rig explosion that caused 11 deaths and the largest environmental disaster in U.S. history… technically proficient and emotionally harrowing, it's basically a condensed version of Titanic with less romance and no icebergs; and His Girl Friday (1940): Criterion Collection - chock full of razor-sharp dialogue often delivered at a breakneck pace, there's a lot to take in during this film's brisk 92-minute running time...and most of it is first-rate. 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.

New Reviews: Jerry Maguire, Author: The JT LeRoy Story, and The Undying Monster
Jerry Maguire [20th Anniversary Edition] Check out the latest reviews that have been entered into the DVD Talk Review Database including: Jerry Maguire [20th Anniversary Edition] - this new incarnation of Jerry Maguire includes an excellent transfer and an OK lossless track… if you are a fan of the film who has never purchased a version on Blu-ray, this has got to be as definitive a version as you're going to get; Author: The JT LeRoy Story - a slick but empathetic reconstruction of a literary scandal that grew out of one woman's need to express her deep emotional pain; and The Undying Monster - Fox's 1942 movie is an atmospherically directed but talky and tame thriller made worthwhile because of John Braham's direction.

TV on DVD: BrainDead, The Knick, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
BrainDead More TV shows have made their way on to DVD and Blu-ray, and DVD Talk has got them covered. Check out our reviews of the newest TV releases including: BrainDead - a Twilight Zone-ish, sci-fi satire takedown of bipartisan extremism in American politics effectively dramatized the harmful effects of ideological bubbles; The Knick: The Complete Second Season - taking place in one of the original surgical hospitals in New York of the 1900s, the show presents surgery of the day in all its horror and glory; and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Earth's Last Stand - an entertaining continuation of a great series… there's plenty of good drama, exciting action, a handful of new and returning characters, and a few planted seeds to help ensure that this season ends with a bang.

Notable Releases: American Honey, A Man Called Ove, and Blair Witch (2016)
American Honey Lets kick off 2017 the right way by checking out some recent releases: American Honey - a road trip movie in the purest sense, in which the journey is more important than the destination anchored by Sasha Lane's knockout debut performance; A Man Called Ove - the Swedish equivalent of The Royal Tenenbaums, exploring the good inside a bitter old man and the painting of a world around him that may not be perfect, but is full of love and companionship; and Blair Witch (2016) - more brutal than the original and offers an intense climax, but it mostly runs in circles. 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.

New Reviews: Storks, Phantasm, and Bullet Train
Storks Some cool discs have been reviewed over the past week. Check out these recent entries: Storks - this animated film is a daring, inventive, and downright hilarious addition by Warner Bros into a field dominated by Pixar; Phantasm (Remastered) - Don Coscarelli's classic horror film is bizarre and memorable and this Blu-ray offers excellent picture and sound; and Bullet Train - a star-studded '70s disaster thriller that offers enough entertainment value to successfully rival the American films that inspired it.
