  1. Electric Man Is the Small Scottish Indie Film the Internet Deserves, and the One It Needs Right Now

    Like a bolt of lightning!

    What if Dante and Randal from Clerks were Scottish, ran a comic book shop, and were involved in a caper? Well then you'd have Electric Man, and that's actually something you're probably going to want to get your hands on. It's available on DVD now.

  2. Review: The Best of Warner Bros. 20 Film Collection: Thrillers

    They're throwing "Thriller" around a little loosely here, but we're not complaining.

    This year Warner Bros. is celebrating 90 years of movies with box sets of 20 DVDs of varying genres, and the latest installment is The Best of Warner Bros. 20 Film Collection: Thrillers. It features some of the best (20 of them, in fact) Warner Bros. movies of the last 90 years, though we're not sure they all count as thrillers.

  3. You Can Buy Your Own Dragon (Sort Of) With This Game Of Thrones Season 3 Box Set

    Winter Is Coming

    Okay, the dragon on this limited edition season 3 Blu-ray/DVD box set can't engulf your enemies in flames. Still, the planned look of the new Game of Thrones set is quite fun, taking the coolest part of the Season 3 marketing campaign, the dragons' shadows, to the next level. The set, which also includes a digital copy of the season, is $104.99 on Amazon, so it turns out that even inanimate dragons are quite expensive. Plus, the image above is only an artist's rendering, so the design could change a bit. Still, a dragon seems like an effective way to guard precious Game of Thrones DVDs, and the resemblance the box set bears to a grave stone definitely lets you know what you're getting into before you hit the end of the season.

    Available exclusively on Amazon, you can pre-order the set now in advance of its February 18, 2014 release.

  4. Doing It Right: Wreck-It Ralph Available for Download Before DVD and Blu-Ray

    Wreck-It Ralph was perhaps, without a doubt, one of the greatest odes to the modern video game industry as a whole and the golden age of video arcades during the early '80s. As such, if you're one of the unfortunate few that happened to miss it, well, it's a downright shame. Luckily, Disney won't have people waiting too long for a market release as the company has announced that Wreck-It Ralph will be available on February 12th... only as a digital download and via streaming services in both HD and 3D. That's right, those with mobile devices and computers will be kicking back and enjoying Wreck-It Ralph in a few weeks, while everyone else anticipating a DVD and Blu-Ray release is going to have to sit tight and ride it out until springtime.

  5. Disney Explains UK Avengers DVD Edits; Won’t Issue a Rerelease

    Consider the Following

    Earlier this week (in a post where despite my best efforts I once again messed up the definition of "the United Kingdom"), we covered the discovering of a mysterious edit to the UK version of The Avengers DVD set. Specifically, it edited a pretty pivotal scene with Agent Phil Coulson to be less violent. You know, that scene. The one that most people half expect them to retcon, and a not-insignificant number of people actively want them to reveal as being not the whole truth of the matter. Well, Disney's got an explanation for that.

  6. Look At This Ridiculous Straight-to-DVD Madagascar Ripoff

    You've been to the bargain DVD bin before, just admit it. Sometimes, you get some gems for five bucks, and other times, you buy the worst possible thing you can find because it's only five bucks and should provide a couple hours of awful fun. This pretty obvious Madagascar ripoff, Life's a Jungle: Africa's Most Wanted, seems like it would struggle to provide even said awful kind of fun. The story revolves around pampered pup Pip, who gets accidentally left in the jungle when what seems to be a rhinoceros smashes into his family's safari jeep and Pip is flung overboard, and forced to adapt to the harsh realities of the jungle. Seriously, watch the trailer, and check out the DVD box art below the break.

  7. DVDs and Blu-Rays Will Now Contain Two Unskippable, Ten Second Copyright Warnings

    Remember that old FBI warning before movies that you probably don't notice anymore because there's a decent chance you exclusively use streaming services to watch your movies and television shows now? Remember how it was always annoying that, whenever you popped in a DVD, you couldn't skip that warning, as your DVD player would inform you that the operation could not be completed? Well, it's about to get even more annoying for DVD and Blu-ray owners. That single, unskippable FBI warning is multiplying, and now DVDs and Blu-rays from six major studios will carry two unskippable, ten second warnings.

  8. You Can Now Sign Up for Netflix DVD Rental Only, If You Want

    Remember back in the dark ol' days of 2011, when Netflix was preparing to tear itself asunder and spin off their DVD rental service into a horrifically named service called Qwikster? Well, now you can have the same experience without the terrible name, as Netflix has announced that you can now sign up directly for a DVD-only plan. It's a thing you can do.
