(Arthur Christmas - Sony - Rated PG)
Arthur Christmas is a clever, imaginative film that explains how Santa does what he does, and is wonderfully delightful! It got me in the Christmas spirit! The DVD and blu-ray contains three featurettes and more.
(Entourage The Complete Series – HBO Home Entertainment - Not Rated)
All eight seasons of the Emmy winning HBO series Entourage come to disc in a complete series set, including several seasons new to blu-ray. This entertaining look at behind the scenes Hollywood is very funny. The set includes six hours of bonus features including multiple featurettes, commentaries, interviews and much more. It’s My Pick of the Week!
(Rags and Riches The Mary Pickford Collection – Milestone Film & Video – Not Rated)
I am a huge fan of Milestone Film and Video. This wonderful company preserves some terrific, classic films for new generations to discover and enjoy. The Mary Pickford, Rags to Riches Collection features four restored Pickford films with introductions designed for kids along with outtakes, commentary, Mary Pickford’s home movies, and more.
(Cut to the Chase: The Charlie Chase Collection – Milestone Film & Video – Not Rated)
Also from Milestone, Cut to the Chase: The Charlie Chase Collection features 16 classic silent comedies on two discs for the all time great comedian. These timeless comedies are still funny today and includes shorts also starring a young Fay Wray, who went on to star in King Kong, and Oliver “Babe” Hardy who would later become half of the legendary comedy duo Laurel and Hardy.
(I Am. SMTown – CJ entertainment – Not Rated)
K-pop, Or Korean pop music has been sweeping the world. If you haven’t heard of Psy by now, where have you been? I Am. SM Town features seven huge K-Pop acts, their preparations for fame, and ultimately, for playing Madison Square Garden. The two disc blu-ray features the documentary along with five featurettes, the entire New York concert and more.
(Rec3: Genesis – Sony – Rated R)
Rec3: Genesis is the third film in the original Spanish language series, and is very good. After a half an hour or so, it abandons the “found footage” concept, but tells the beginnings of the weird virus that turns people into zombies. Extras include a gag reel and deleted scenes.
