Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Turkey Day Collection Some great discs are being released this week. Check out these new movies: Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Turkey Day Collection [review] - Even after dozens of collections, this set proves that there are still some great episodes of MST out there... these shows are all very good and some are great; L'avventura: Criterion Collection [review] - half drama and half visual tour de force...and occasionally, it's both at once. Criterion's new Blu-ray offers a flawless restoration of material that demands it; and A Life in Dirty Movies [review] - a thoughtful, loving and respectful tribute to a perhaps misunderstood filmmaker of genuine talent. 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 Bubble aka Fantastic Invasion of Planet Earth (3-D) Check out the latest reviews that have been entered into the DVD Talk Review Database including: The Bubble aka Fantastic Invasion of Planet Earth (3-D) - featuring a bizarre plot as well as its plentiful, eye-popping 3-D effects for aficionados this film is a must; The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945) - Visually stark, emotionally gloomy, and appropriately thought-provoking, it's a tweaked but mesmerizing take on Oscar Wilde's gothic horror-drama novel that makes certain to hit all the right dramatic and philosophical notes; and The Killer Elite (1975) - Anchored by fantastic performances from James Caan and Robert Duvall, this tale of two contract assassins who go from being partners to arch enemies is an entertaining action picture that exemplifies the look and feel of 1970s American cinema. Other recent reviews include: Why Be Good?, One Piece: Collection Ten, and Looking For Johnny: The Legend Of Johnny Thunders.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I It'd be a good weekend to go to the movies. Here are DVD Talk's recent theatrical reviews: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I - a perfect example of a final entry that didn't need to be separated into two films... part one is practically starved of the impact that this franchise is famous for; Keep On Keepin' On - you don't have to know jazz to enjoy the new music documentary about trumpet player Clark Terry and one of his protégés - his one-liners and homilies will have you laughing just as much as his famous tunes will have you tapping your toes; and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night - more than your typical vampire flick,it's an intriguing look at two people who are simply looking for a clean slate to start a better life. Other recent films include: Big Hero 6, Interstellar, The Theory of Everything, John Wick, Laggies, John Wick, Laggies, Force Majeure, Birdman, Fury, Dracula Untold, Gone Girl, Harmontown, A Walk Among the Tombstones, and The Maze Runner. . Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.

Batman The Complete TV Series Limited Edition Blu-ray Interested in the latest TV on DVD reviews? DVD Talk has you covered! This week's notable entries include: Batman The Complete TV Series Limited Edition Blu-ray - between the wonderfully silly show, the quality of the presentation, and the excellent extras that have been included, this set is one all Batman fans will want to own; Criminal Minds: Season 9 - the writing, the direction and the execution of these episodes make this a must-watch show; and Getting On: Season 1 - an oppressively dark comedy that's definitely not for everyone, but it's a brilliantly written and acted show and if you have a particularly sick sense of humor you should give it a chance. Other shows recently reviewed include:  Mythbusters: Collection 11, Awkward: Season 3, and Annie Oakley: The Complete TV Series.  Want more?  Check out all of the TV on DVD reviews in the DVD Talk database.

Gorky Park This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: Gorky Park - William Hurt blooms in a superior murder thriller with a unique setting: he plays a Moscow policemen who must solve a grisly killing that may implicate someone from the KGB. It's career suicide time as Hurt's cop deals with the black market, a friend of the victims who won't talk and an American businessman with an investment interest in Russian sable furs (Lee Marvin in one of his last roles). Great action and intrigues from topflight director Michael Apted; The Picture of Dorian Gray - High-toned producer-director Albert Lewin found the perfect horror story for his temperament, Oscar Wilde's creepy parable about a man who takes a dare with a painting and a promise; and The Conformist - Bernardo Bertolucci's dazzling investigation into the Fascist personality is still an intellectual challenge and visual dazzler. Jean-Louis Trintignant is the cipher who becomes an assassin to find his place in a new order. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

22 Jump Street There are a few new releases this week that you won't want to miss. Check out these hot titles: 22 Jump Street [review] - The gang comes back for another installment undercover, only this time, they go to college... damned enjoyable to experience; Kiki's Delivery Service [review] - a simple story told extremely well... charming characters adorn the story of Kiki's ups and down in discovering herself, giving the story a rich backdrop as it sweeps us along with her broomstick rides across a gloriously animated landscape; and It Happened One Night - The Criterion Collection [review] - the influance of Frank Capra's romantic comedy is still felt today, not least of the reasons being the film itself holds up perfectly on the strength of the chemistry between its two leads (Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert) and Capra's excellent sense of tone. Other reviews of note include: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari [review], Mauvais Sang [review], and Boy Meets Girl (1984) [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.

La Bamba Check out the latest reviews that have been entered into the DVD Talk Review Database including: La Bamba - Writer/director Luis Valdez uses pop star Ritchie Valens's brief life as an opportunity to craft a naturalistic family drama and Twilight Time's Blu-ray offers a technically top-notch presentation for this underrated gem; Happy Christmas - a top-notch, improvised film by Joe Swanberg that gives us as true a story of BFFs as you're ever likely to see; and Marvel Knights: Eternals - a truly must-watch program... far removed from anything else to fall under the Marvel Knights banner, Neil Gaiman and John Romita Jr's loving revitalization of Jack Kirby's cerebral celestial saga is pure class. Other recent reviews include: Nothing Bad Can Happen, Princess Mononoke, and Under Fire.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.
