Reptilicus This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: Reptilicus - It's low-rent monster time in color and widescreen... the 1962 Danish opus is the fave inept giant monster epic of all time, run on the streets of Copenhagen with the smiling Danes happily 'fleeing' the giant marionette; John Ford: Dreaming The Quiet Man - this feature documentary on the making of John Ford's classic digs way down into several subjects -- all having to do with the director's enigmatic personality; and Pandas: The Journey Home - They're big, they're cuddly, and plenty dangerous, but this 3-D IMAX short feature is a glimpse at the work being done at a Chinese Panda centers, where Pandas are bred, raised and trained to fend for themselves in the wild. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

Get Hard Another banner week for DVDs with the studios releasing some great films and boxed sets such as: Get Hard [review] - The film has some flaws, but Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart are a hell of a comedy team, and when the movie works, it is hilarious; The Decline Of Western Civilization Collection [review] - Shout! Factory have done a pretty fantastic job bringing these important music films to Blu-ray in truly deluxe style; and Valerie and Her Week of Wonders [review] - an arthouse film that is as bizarre as it is compelling and genuinely enchanting... it's beautiful, strange and ripe for interpretation. Other reviews of note include: The New Barbarians [review], Ghosthouse / Witchery [review], and 1990: The Bronx Warriors [review]. 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 Thing with Two Heads This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: The Thing with Two Heads - this horror pastiche turns out to be competent, non-insulting, amusing and reasonably well done. Who'da thunk it? Ray Milland takes the assignment as an opportunity to make a coherent statement about bigotry, and succeeds; The Night of the Generals - Omar Sharif's German crime investigator finds that a top general may have committed a gruesome murder in the middle of the Warsaw campaign; and Monte Walsh - Lee Marvin and Jack Palance are cowboy holdouts, riding the range while the companies from back East are closing down ranches left and right... this is one beautifully filmed movie, so the Blu-ray encoding really makes a difference. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

3-D Rarities Another banner week for DVDs with the studios releasing some great films and boxed sets such as: 3-D Rarities [review] - a great mix of quality effects and archival material that cinephiles will want in their collections, presented in terrific quality with some interesting and informative extras; Sugar Hill [review] - a blaxploitation zombie flick that is every bit as much of a blast as it sounds; and The Bridge: Criterion Collection [review] - Bernhard Wicki's assuredly directed 1959 film makes its pacifist point with an unexpected dose of melancholy a fascinating, still hard-hitting drama. Other reviews of note include: Stone Cold [review], The Fisher King: Criterion Collection [review], and Dog Soldiers: Collector's Edition [review]. 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.

Spirited Away Some great DVD and Blu-ray reviews have been added to the the DVD Talk Review Database recently including: Spirited Away - Hayao Miyazaki's film is a versatile, spellbinding piece of work that continues to offer fresh delights within each viewing... packed with breathtaking artistry, compelling characters, and stunning dreamlike imagery; The Decline of Western Civilization Collection - Shout! Factory has done a fantastic job bringing these seminal music films to Blu-ray in truly deluxe style... the movies look and sound as good as you'd want them to and the set is jam-packed with extras; and Society - this bizarre body horror/black comedy film is good, gory fun, and Arrow's Blu-ray is technically impressive and includes a ton of extra features. Other recent reviews include: Tom and Jerry: The Gene Deitch Collection, My Dinner with Andre: The Criterion Collection, and Inherit the Wind.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.
