TV Reviews: Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Ash Vs. Evil Dead
Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXXIX TV on DVD and Blu-ray remains very popular with more and more favorites being released. New TV reviews include: Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXXIX - this final release of classic MST episodes is bitter sweet… while there are three decent installments this time around, it's (probably) the last release of classic show; and Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2 - filled with creative moments and Bruce Campbell's wonderful portrayal of one of the genre's most popular characters, you'd have to be a deadite not to enjoy these 10 episodes.

Notable Releases: Misery, Deathdream, and Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis
Misery: Collector's Edition Some pretty cool discs have made their way to store shelves over the past couple of weeks. Check out these new titles: Misery: Collector's Edition - director David Leitch brings a familiarly gritty, stylized presence to the spy-thriller graphic novel adaptation, capturing both combat and conversations with mesmerizing visuals and ‘80s tunes that consistently interweave with the narrative itself; Deathdream - one of the best of the independently produced horror pictures from the early '70s is back in a much- improved transfer; and Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis - this documentary goes beyond what happened to the Eagles of Death Metal and their fans at the November 2015 terrorist attack in Paris and shows you the tangible human connections made between the band and followers, brought together even further by the tragic events. 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: The Last Laugh, La Chinoise, and They Call Me Bruce?
The Last Laugh Check out the latest reviews that have been entered into the DVD Talk Review Database including: The Last Laugh - deeply touching and empathetic this movie is a testament of F. W. Murnau's distinct ability to communicate deep human emotion with visuals alone; La Chinoise - the barrage of pop-art-derived images and political-philosophical quotations in this Jean-Luc Godard film makes it tough on its audience, but it's well-made and makes for an interesting puzzle-piece in the director’s filmography; and They Call Me Bruce? - this isn't politically correct but it is pretty funny… it consistently aims for the bottom of the barrel and hits its mark time and time again, but it's so intentionally dumb that you can't help but laugh at it.

TV Reviews: Westworld and PAW Patrol
Westworld: The Complete First Season Some great TV shows have made their way onto home video recently including: Westworld: The Complete First Season - an intelligent reimagining of its source, this show concerns a Wild West-themed futuristic theme park populated by highly advanced androids where, for $40,000 a day, the richest of the rich can indulge in sex at the local brothel and violent gunplay with machines that bleed realistically but programmed not to harm them back; and PAW Patrol: The Great Snow Rescue - still going strong after more than four years (a lifetime, as far as kids shows go), and that's a good thing because it's been a consistently fun and entertaining show.

Notable Releases: Atomic Blonde, Cease Fire, and Le Samourai
Atomic Blonde There are a few new releases that you won't want to miss. Check out these hot titles: Atomic Blonde - director David Leitch brings a familiarly gritty, stylized presence to the spy-thriller graphic novel adaptation, capturing both combat and conversations with mesmerizing visuals and ‘80s tunes that consistently interweave with the narrative itself; Cease Fire - 3D - a semi-documentary depiction of the last days of the Korean War, shot on real battlefield locations, using real soldiers, more or less playing themselves, firing real ammunition; and Le Samourai - quite simply one of the finest crime drama/noirs ever made and the very embodiment of cinematic cool... Criterion has done a nice job giving the film a more than respectable high definition presentation. 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: The Dark Tower, Jabberwocky, and Annabelle: Creation
The Dark Tower Some cool discs have been reviewed over the past week. Check out these recent entries: The Dark Tower - this truncated, superficial adaptation of Stephen King's series squanders a talented cast with a stop-start narrative that neither satisfies fans nor appropriately introduces newcomers to the material; Jabberwocky: Criterion Collection - Terry Gilliam's film is a fascinating little slice of film history for the soon-to-be celebrated director… there's a certain level of enjoyment here, including a likable lead performance by Michael Palin and a substantial atmosphere that defies its extremely modest budget; and Annabelle: Creation - a worthy entry in the Conjuring universe and an improvement upon Annabelle, this sequel offers an increased mythology for the Annabelle doll and its corresponding demon and is nicely directed.

Notable Releases: The Philadelphia Story, Ingrid Goes West, and The Mercenary
The Philadelphia Story: Criterion Collection Several great movies and programs have come out recently, including a few that shouldn't be missed: The Philadelphia Story: Criterion Collection - still a very enjoyable comedy more than 75 years after its release, largely due to George Cukor's direction, a star-studded cast, and the popular source material it was skillfully based upon; Ingrid Goes West - this movie leverages how engaging Aubrey Plaza is and turns the film into a bit of a showcase for her while gently warning the viewer on the dangers of social media in the modern age; and The Mercenary - aka A Professional Gun - top notch entertainment… a gritty Spaghetti Western helmed by one of the best directors to work in the genre and played by a very game cast. 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: Rock-a-Doodle, The Love of a Woman, and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
Rock-a-Doodle Our reviewers have been busy this week, filling the DVD Talk Review Database more great entries. Some new reviews of note include: Rock-a-Doodle - in the pantheon of movies about a sorcerous, organist owl transforming a little boy into a cartoon kitten who in turn sets out to track down Rooster Elvis, no one -- and I mean no one -- has done it better than Rock-a-Doodle; The Love of a Woman - a gorgeous little film that offers a low-key portrait of life in a small seaside town, flavored with some Douglas Sirk-style melodrama; and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind - essentially the very first Studio Ghibli film, this movie continues to withstand the test of time, whether we're talking about its visual language, the themes it employs, or the enduring strength of its heroine.

Movies in Theaters: Thor: Ragnarok, Blade Runner 2049, and The Foreigner
Thor: Ragnarok Before you head off to the cinema this weekend, check out DVD Talk's reviews of the latest releases including: Thor: Ragnarok - you can't ask for much more in the way of entertainment and fun... three cheers for all involved; Blade Runner 2049 - this movie manages to take the moral and philosophical themes of the first film and expand on them to create one of the most satisfying sci-fi epics in recent memory; and The Foreigner - Jackie Chan is still excellent, he really does exhibit the best acting of his career, and he's still got the moves, age has not beaten this badass. Other recent films include: Kingsman: The Golden Circle, It, The Dark Tower, The Glass Castle, Atomic Blonde, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Dunkirk, and The Beguiled. Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.

Notable Releases: Into The Night, Junior Bonner, and Death Rides a Horse
Into The Night: Collector's Edition Some pretty cool discs have made their way to store shelves over the past couple of weeks. Check out these new titles: Into The Night: Collector's Edition - John Landis' most forgotten film is still enjoyable in its own right… Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Pfeiffer turn in great performances and it's fun to play "spot the cameo" as the film chugs along; Junior Bonner - one of Sam Peckinpah's most maligned films gets an excellent special edition Blu-ray release from Kino Lorber… the commentary is sure to please Peckinpah's many fans and the transfer offers a substantial upgrade over the old non-anamorphic DVD release; and Death Rides a Horse - Giulio Petroni’s movie might not tell the most original story, but it sure is well made and beautifully shot. 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: Spider-Man: Homecoming, Porky Pig, and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me
Avanti! Our reviewers have been busy this week, filling the DVD Talk Review Database more great entries. Some new reviews of note include: Spider-Man: Homecoming - a strong addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that offers a refreshingly entertaining version of Spider-Man and never gets bogged down in tiresome origin-story cliches; Porky Pig 101 - this 5-disc set encompasses every Porky Pig cartoon from his debut in 1935 through 1943's Porky's Pig Feat, every black-and-white Porky cartoon, presented chronologically, some 101 in all… an amazing collection of vast interest and importance to anyone seriously interested in classic animation; and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me - this movie remains a high point in David Lynch's career, a brilliant film that both precludes and simultaneously expands upon the Twin Peaks story in fascinating ways.

TV Reviews: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Just Shoot Me!, and Carol Burnett
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Complete Series TV on DVD and Blu-ray remains very popular with more and more favorites being released. New TV reviews include: Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Complete Series - one of the better shows that came out in the late ‘90s-early ‘00s and a must-see for genre fans… the episodes weren't just good installments of the show, they were good episodes of television; Just Shoot Me!: The Complete Series - for fans of the series, this complete series set is a great way to revisit the show and experience the comedic hijinks of these characters; and The Best of the Carol Burnett Show - one can never have too much of the Carol Burnett Show in their collection, and it's great to see these keep coming out.
