The White Tower This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: The White Tower - RKO sent color cameras to Europe to film Paul Jarrico's tale of a daring attempt to climb a forbidding mountain - this is one of the better films of its type; Che! - the most embarrassing movie biography of all time is a fascinating study of what happens when a Hollywood studio takes on a hot-button political potato... the filmmakers do everything but backflips to avoid dealing with Che Guevara's ideas about revolution; and The Young Savages - Rough tough Burt Lancaster puts his liberal brand on Harold Hecht's juvenile delinquency epic, with an assist from sophomore film director John Frankenheimer. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

Poirot Brit-Streaming returns as Greg Bakun takes a look at the very final episode to the long running mystery series, Agatha Christie’s Poirot. The final episode, Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case, is a very somber story as we catch up with Poirot later in his life. Poirot’s body is failing him but his mind is as sharp as ever as he is on a trail of a killer who uses a most unconventional way to get at the victims. Poirot is reunited with his oldest friend Captain Hasting for one last adventure but unfortunately, Hastings is also battling some demons in his life. As usual, Greg looks at the story and reviews it plus looks at what is happening with the online streaming service AcornTV. There are quite a few new programs being added to the service in October so its always fun to what treasures Acorn has uncovered and added to their service. Read about all this, and more, in the latest installment of Brit-Streaming.

Transformers: Age of Extinction This week several great movies are coming out, including a few that shouldn't be missed: Transformers: Age of Extinction [review] - Michael Bay returns to direct this massive, 165-minute action spectacle, and Mark Wahlberg steps into the lead alongside Optimus Prime and the Autobots; Betty Boop: The Essential Collection, Volume 4 [review] - Another must-have for animation buffs and a set guaranteed to enchant children and adults alike heretofore unfamiliar with these phantasmagorical cartoons; and Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever [review] - Over thirty years after it originally aired on network television this music-filled special is finally being released on DVD... it is filled with famous acts but the highlight is Michael Jackson's indelible, Emmy-nominated performance of Billie Jean, (where he introduces the world to the moonwalk). Other reviews of note include: Chef [review], Ali: Fear Eats the Soul [review], and One Piece: Film Z [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.

Arrow: Season 2 Some great TV shows have made their way onto DVD this week including: Arrow: Season 2 - with fantastic character development, gripping storylines that never let go, some wonderful performances, and probably the best action sequences on all of television, this is one of the best shows on TV; South Park: Season 17 - this season has proven Trey Parker and Matt Stone still have plenty of gas left in the tank... everything you could possibly want is here: Social and political satire, the humiliation of obnoxious Hollywood celebrities, and best of all, the kids dressing up in their adventure garb and starting a multi-angled war, Game of Thrones style; and Daktari: The Complete Third Season - Perfect family entertainment for the smaller small fry: plenty of animals, lots of nonviolent action, and stories that won't tax them or insult you (too much). Other shows recently reviewed include:  NCIS: Season 11, Chicago P.D. - Season One, and Elementary: Season 2.  Want more?  Check out all of the TV on DVD reviews in the DVD Talk database.

Ghostbusters This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: Ghostbusters - For the 30th Anniversary Edition, Sony trots out new transfers and adds new extras with nostalgic memories from Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd; Across 110th Street - It's not Blaxploitation, but a pure gangster drama that skips social messages in favor of straight-up action and suspense; and The Dogs of War - on-task mercenary tough guy Christopher Walken is beaten senseless during a reconnaisance/spy trip to a corrupt African dictatorship... he returns with a fighting force to kill the president and seize the country. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.
