New movies on DVD, Blu-ray, pay-per-view and in theaters
O.K., so you’ve got this great high definition TV, and there are literally thousands of movies out there to choose from. Every Friday, I post a quick list of the films that will be coming out on DVD, Blu-ray and pay-per-view on the next Tuesday, and on the Tuesday after that, along the theatrical releases for the next week. In effect, the home entertainment information is repeated for those who want to get a jump on things.
