A new weekly feature here at Screen Rant will be your go-to guide for movie releases on home video. We’ll let you know which new films are coming out each week and which movies are getting the coveted Blu-ray re-release, along with a special deal of the week and intriguing picks you may not know about.

This week is an especially great time to begin, considering the caliber of films gracing shelves today. So, without further ado, let’s get going.

NEW RELEASES:

Blind Side DVd3.jpg3 DVD/Blu Ray Breakdown: March 23rd, 2010

The Blind Side- Sandra Bullock’s Oscar-winning performance in this inspiring true story turned the rom-com queen into a respectable and prestigious actress. The special features are limited to only an hour of materials, but “Sideline Conversations” is a half-hour segment featuring discussions between the director, the writer and Bullock with her real-life counterpart.

Fantastic Mr. Fox DVD1.jpg1 DVD/Blu Ray Breakdown: March 23rd, 2010

Fantastic Mr. Fox- Wes Anderson’s dip into the animated world was a successful one as he walked away with an Oscar-nomination and an overall brilliant film. Check out our Mr. Fox review. On a personal note, this is my new favorite animated feature, knocking off The Nightmare Before Christmas. Special features are rumored to be limited, but as long as viewers get a chance to see how they recorded on-location sound, instead of in-studio, they should be pleased. George Clooney, Meryl Streep and Bill Murray provide voices.

Brothers1.jpg1 DVD/Blu Ray Breakdown: March 23rd, 2010

Brothers- Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhall star alongside Natalie Portman in this intense and realistic tale of a family torn apart by war. However, the real star of the film is young actress Bailee Madison, who stole the show with an unbelievable range of emotion that captivated audiences. The film was underrated and didn’t get much press, but it is one of the more emotional movies of 2009.

Men Who Stare At Goats.jpg DVD/Blu Ray Breakdown: March 23rd, 2010

The Men Who Stare at Goats- George Clooney’s “other” release is his live-action film based on the true story of American operatives testing out a radical new theory on mind manipulation and interrogation. We’ve even got a contest connected to the film where you can win an LCD television.

Mad Men Season 3 DVD1.jpg1 DVD/Blu Ray Breakdown: March 23rd, 2010

Mad Men (Season 3)- One of the most popular shows on television brings its third season to shelves for you to add to your compilation. 61 minutes of Don Draper and Co. belongs in any collection.

BLU-RAY RE-RELEASES:

Toy Story Blu Ray.jpg DVD/Blu Ray Breakdown: March 23rd, 2010

Toy Story 1 & 2- As Pixar prepares for the release of Toy Story 3, the studio is gracing fans with a much-desired release of the first two films. Blu-ray.com gave both releases a 4.5 out of 5, praising the video and audio transfers, with exceptional special features.

Days of Heaven blu ray1.jpg1 DVD/Blu Ray Breakdown: March 23rd, 2010

Days of Heaven- The Criterion Collection is known as possibly the best in the business at releasing Blu-ray versions of classic films and the trend continues with a near-perfect 4.5/5 review of Terrence Malick’s earlier work. With regards to picture quality, this is a perfect example of the type of film that deserves to be on Blu-Ray.

DEAL OF THE DAY:

Twilight Zone dvd box art DVD/Blu Ray Breakdown: March 23rd, 2010

The Twilight Zone- /Film reported this awesome announcement for any Twilight Zone buff: the entire series in one box set for $112. At nearly 72 cents per episode, I’d say that’s a deal worth paying for – if you’ve got room for all 28 discs. This deal only lasts until midnight tonight, so get cracking or you’ll miss out and have to buy the set at its regular $300 price.

INTRIGUING RELEASE OF THE DAY:

Hitler Meets Christ- Apparently it is about two men who meet in a train station, one believing he is Christ and the other Hitler. No I’m not making that up.

We’ll see you next week for more DVD/Blu-ray releases!

  1. The only ones I'm interested in buying will be the Toy Story films and I'm going to wait a few months for the price to drop before buying them (I've been burned by the double dip before with these titles, just so I could get my hands on the commentary).

  2. I'm with you Joshi, the only movies I'm interested in are Toy Story 1 and 2 on Blu Ray…

  3. I've already got both these films twice on DVD… and I've even got the first Toy Story on VHS, so I'm in no rush to get them again, HD or no, but I've heard the special features are pretty good (and not just a re-hash of old features) so when the price drops, it'll be worth it for me.

  4. So I take it you sort of like the Toy Story movies? Maybe a little? lol

    Yah, they were great movies, the rest of the new releases mentioned here, eh, not much interest in any of them…

  5. Well, I like em, but then they wouldn't be the first movies I'd owned on VHS and doubled up on with the DVD… and again, I only bought the DVD's a second time because I wanted to listen to the commentaries which really just proves I'm a fan on commentaries in general… but yes, I do really like them.

  6. I really recommend giving Fantastic Mr. Fox a chance. It's the best of this week's new releases. Well worth a look

  7. I saw it at the cinema (it was one of my favourite books as a child) and I'm pretty sure I'm the only living person who wasn't as enamoured with it as everyone else was. It was good for a cinema viewing, but I've no intention of seeing it again. That and it's been out on DVD and Blu-Ray here in the UK for about a month now, so not really a new release.

  9. Fantastic Mr. Fox was the best movie of2009 and is better than most of the stuff Disney can do.

  10. The African Queen (Commemorative Box Set) [Blu-ray] (1951) has to be the most unbelievably overlooked release this week. How can you not say a little something about one of the few hold out classics that has finally been given a DVD release? Well at least it came out in a deluxe version. If their's anything more out there that hasn't been gleaned for this DVD release, well I'll be surprised to see it anytime soon. It comes with Hepburn's out-of-print memoir, an hour long new “making of” feature, and 8 images from the theatrical lobby cards.

  11. Nice call The_Old_Man…maybe I should change Intriguing Pick to Classic Of The Week

  12. Cool list you should have these more often

  13. Thanks JD5DAD, I'll be doing it every Tuesday.

  14. I worked on Hitler Meets Christ, first as the key grip (also, the only grip) and later as the third AD. It was… strange, but not as strange as Michael Moriarity was. The phrase “eccentric, troubled genius” comes to mind. Anyway, hilarious to see it mentioned here.
