Cries and Whispers: Criterion Collection Our reviewers have been busy this week, filling the DVD Talk Review Database more great entries. Some new reviews of note include: Cries and Whispers: Criterion Collection - this Ingmar Bergman film is a powerful piece of work, with incredibly intense performances and a hypnotic visual approach, that makes it a must-see; Imitation of Life - 2-Movie Collection - containing the 1934 and the 1959 versions of the movie, both are engrossing, entertaining films, and the transfers are impressive; and Our Mother's House - an excellent, quietly suspenseful drama, splendidly realized by its main child actors and a rakish Dirk Bogarde. Other recent reviews include: Eclipse series 42: Silent Ozu - Three Crime Dramas, Where the Spies Are, and Mark of the Devil.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Silicon Valley: Season 1 More TV shows have made their way on to DVD and Blu-ray, and DVD Talk has got them covered. Check out our reviews of the newest TV releases including: Silicon Valley: Season 1 - HBO has another winner with Mike Judge and Co.'s note-perfect tech nerd comedy; ''CHiPs'': The Complete Third Season - deliciously inconsequential TV at its escapist best - highly recommended; and VEEP: The Complete Third Season - Season 3 of this Julia Louis-Dreyfus comedy packs some compelling plot punches for the show to pick up in the new season. Other shows recently reviewed include:  My Little Pony Tales: The Complete Series (1992), Joe 90: The Complete Series, and The Legend of Korra: Book Four - Balance.  Want more?  Check out all of the TV on DVD reviews in the DVD Talk database.

Invaders from Mars This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: Invaders from Mars - Tobe Hooper remakes an old classic with fancy effects but neglects just about every other aspect of this loud and colorful Martians-your-lap epic; Zardoz - John Boorman's ambitious New Age future dystopia has a savage Sean Connery invade a Vortex of immortality, to grant the Eternals, the Apathetics, the Brutals and what-have-you with the sweet release of death; and Dance with Me, Henry - Abbott and Costello's last feature as a comedy team is a truly sad affair... Lou runs a child's fun-fair, and fears that the authorities will take away his adopted children while Bud is a chronic gambler tangled up with loan sharks. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

The Babadook There are some new titles coming out that might make it worth a trip to the video store this week. Check out these recent releases: The River [review] - Jean Renoir's sublime film is a loving, awe-inspiring, and heartwarming ode to India; Escape From New York: Collector's Edition [review] - this moive holds up after almost 35 years thanks to terrific lead performances, memorable characters, a cool story, and more than enough atmosphere to keep you sucked in; and Blue Sky [review] - this moive that earned Jessica Lange a Best Actress Oscar win in 1995 is a satisfying, solidly crafted drama. Other reviews of note include: The Pete Walker Collection: Volume 2 [review], The Wicked Lady [review], and Breakin' / Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo [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.

Odd Man Out: Criterion Collection This week the DVD Talk Review Database has some great new entries, including a few discs you may have overlooked. Recent DVD reviews include: Odd Man Out: Criterion Collection - this movie kicked off director Carol Reed's run of great post-war films and its indelible style, sharp vignettes, and masterful lead performance makes for an immensely rewarding film.; X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes - among the smartest and most thoughtful genre films of its era, this Blu-ray release of the Roger Corman film has a gorgeous presentation and substantial extras; and Hoop Dreams - this excellent film helped bring a newfound vitality to documentaries as it follows two young boys in Chicago as they attempt to find success in high school basketball which will hopefully find them securing a college scholarship. Other recent reviews include: Journey to the Center of the Earth (4K remastered version), Solomon and Sheba, and Batman vs. Robin.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Inside Amy Schumer: Seasons One & Two TV on DVD remains very popular with more and more favorites being released. New TV reviews include: Inside Amy Schumer: Seasons One & Two - a tremendously funny show that's loaded with big laughs and refreshingly light on potholes; Case Histories: Complete Collection - a good private eye series based on novels and characters created by Kate Atkinson, it tells the story of an ex-soldier/ex-cop turned private investigator struggling with family problems and haunted by memories of the death of a young woman; and Hill Street Blues: Season 4 - season four found the show cresting at the highest possible peak of an already large wave, and it was breathtaking to enjoy the ride.

The Friends of Eddie Coyle This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: The Friends of Eddie Coyle - Robert Mitchum is superb as an aging Boston hood who turns squealer in hopes of avoiding a prison term. Unfortunately, the ruthless web of deceit and informing in the Beantown underworld puts him at a lethal disadvantage; Hoop Dreams - Three filmmakers followed two disadvantaged Chicago neighborhood boys for five years, as they pursued their goal of becoming big-time NBA basketball players; and The Way Things Go - A pair of Swiss artists / mechanics / chemical engineers fashion an astonishingly varied and intricate Rube Goldberg machine that takes a full thirty minutes to play out. It's a seemingly endless set of mechanical cause & effect actions. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.
