Drive-In/Exploitation/B-Movie Challenge April is almost here and that means it's time for DVDTalk's Eighth Annual Drive-In/Exploitation/B-Movie Challenge! In this event, fans of trash cinema, the dreck and dross of films, will try to watch 100 B-movies in a single month and (optionally) complete the movie checklist that has such diverse items as watching a 60s Beach Movie, a Mexican wrestling film, a "bad sequel to a well regarded film" and a nunsploitation flick (and much more!). Can you spend the evening chatting about the relative merits of various Bruce Lee imposters or are you someone who realizes that Russ Meyer films are an art form unto themselves? Then this is the event for you! If you think you're up to the test, or even if you just want to watch, check out the official Challenge thread. It'll be loads of fun! The excitement all starts on April 1st, but it's never too late to join in the fun!

A Monster Calls Some pretty cool discs have made their way to store shelves over the past couple of weeks. Check out these new titles: A Monster Calls - a somber tale that openly bears its soul in a manner that always rings true, this film is an immensely effective experience that's suitable for almost all audiences; September Storm 3D - a movie that was close to being lost forever that has now been made viewable in near-pristine quality… and the disc includes two shorts from the 50’s as extras; and World Without End - an interesting ‘50s sci-fi picture, the film is clearly done with more care than the usual genre film of the era. 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.

Passengers (4K Blu-ray) Some great DVD and Blu-ray reviews have been added to the the DVD Talk Review Database recently including: Passengers (4K Blu-ray) - half hard-nosed sci-fi and half standard drama thriller, this film meanders to its foreseeable destination but the Ultra HD Blu-ray lands with a superb audio and video presentation; The Valley of Gwangi - cowboys pitted against dinosaurs in a valley trapped in time featuring animation by Ray Harryhausen… how can you go wrong?; and The Creeping Garden - fascinating stuff… a beautifully shot and strangely compelling picture about a fringe topic that shouldn't be anywhere nearly as interesting as it is. Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

The Defenders: Season 1 Interested in the latest TV on DVD reviews? DVD Talk has you covered! This week's notable entries include: The Defenders: Season 1 - starring E.G. Marshall and Robert Reed as a father-son team of defense attorneys, this show displays the intelligence and idealism of the best early television drama, even though it hit the airwaves in 1961; Drunk History: Season Four - the program hasn't lost any steam… the result is a show that gets plenty of laughs, but which will let you learn something you didn't already know; and Sabrina Down Under - based on the TV show from the 90’s, this 1999 made-for-TV movie is a tale of witches and mermen from the sea… it tries to liven things up by including an ecological message and some intrigue but it’s largely a misfire. Want more?  Check out all of the TV on DVD reviews in the DVD Talk database.

Being There: Criterion Collection Some pretty cool discs are being released this week. Check out these new titles: Being There: Criterion Collection - a professional highlight for director Hal Ashby and star Peter this film remains relevant and entertaining almost 40 years later; Teen Witch - a fun, silly, nonsensical teen comedy/romance featuring a non-bombshell female lead that seems almost quaint today; and Cinema Paradiso - one of those movies that every film lover should see at least one time… many will fall in love with it. 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.

Firestarter Check out the latest DVD reviews that have been entered into the DVD Talk Review Database including: Firestarter - this movie based on the Stephen King book starts off strong, stumbles a couple of times in the middle stretch, and then finishes with a bang; Edge of Eternity - a beautiful restoration of a little-known thriller that deserves to be better known; and Sad Vacation - a fantastic, shaggy documentary re-telling of the saga of Sid and Nancy. Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Logan It'd be a good week to go to the movies. Here are DVD Talk's recent theatrical reviews: Logan - a solid feature... something that innovates while still harking back, a movie that should please a large audience and make us thirsty for more; Kong: Skull Island - this is an action movie with Kong as an odd sort of hero... a film we want to watch despite its poorer properties; and Beauty and the Beast (2017) - almost everything goes right in this risky venture that could have fallen flat on its face. The result is a delightful and entertaining film. Other recent films include: Split, Gold, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, ans La La Land. Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.
