January 30, 2010 - Are you ready for some football? If so, put on your pads for our review of Air Bud: Golden Receiver Special Edition. In this theatrically-released 1998 sequel, the wonder dog and his best friend Josh (Kevin Zegers) join Fernfield's football team, while Josh's widowed mom (Cynthia Stevenson) begins dating the family's new vet.
In stores Tuesday, this unlikely re-release subject contains a sports report from Buddy's kids (the talking puppies of the popular "Buddies" movies) and a whistle. Be sure to read this review.

January 29, 2010 - Our newest review looks at the acclaimed horror comedy Zombieland. With humanity threatened by ravenous zombies, a college student (Jesse Eisenberg), a Southern man (Woody Harrelson), and two sisters (Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin) join forces to stay alive, wipe out the undead, and enjoy life's little pleasures. Available next week, Sony's DVD includes an audio commentary, two featurettes, deleted scenes, visual effects deconstructions, promotional trailers, a webisode, and seven Easter eggs. Don't miss our full review.

Our March release schedule is filling up with DVD and Blu-ray news for movies released to theaters in the fall and around the holidays.
Among the latest additions: The Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Princess and the Frog, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, and Where the Wild Things Are. Check it out.

January 27, 2010 - Our newest review subject, The Boys Are Back, is one of the latest Miramax films to come to DVD following a quiet theatrical run. Clive Owen stars as a widowed British sportswriter struggling to single-handedly rear his two sons in Australia. Based on Simon Carr's experiences and directed by Shine's Scott Hicks, this PG-13 drama is now available with a narrated photo gallery and featurette. Read the full review.

January 26, 2010 - Check out January 26th on our schedule for a look at all of today's new releases.

We can now tell you all about the March home video plans for two of Disney's holiday season movies, The Princess and the Frog and Old Dogs...

Old Dogs, the underperforming Robin Williams and John Travolta PG-rated comedy, will be released March 9th in a single-disc DVD ($29.99 SRP), a single-disc Blu-ray ($39.99 SRP), and in a three-disc Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack ($44.99 SRP). The DVD will include only bloopers and deleted scenes, while the standalone Blu-ray adds Travolta and daughter Ella Bleu's "Every Little Step" music video. Besides the digital copy, the Combo will also contain two additional exclusives in Bryan Adams' "You've Been a Friend to Me" music video and the featurette "Young Dogs Learn Old Tricks."

Soon to gross $100 million domestically, Princess and the Frog leaps to home video on March 16th in the same three arrangements as Old Dogs. Its single-disc DVD will hold a filmmakers' audio commentary, deleted scenes, a Princess Portraits game, and a music video for Ne-Yo's end credits song "I Never Knew I Needed You."
The Princess and the Frog
The Blu-ray disc, which will be the same on its own and in the Combo with DVD and digital copy, will add a number of exclusives including art galleries and the featurettes "The Disney Legacy", "The Making of a Princess", "Disney's Newest Princess", "Conjuring the Villain", "The Return to Hand-Drawn Animation" and "Bringing Life to Animation."

Cover art for The Princess and the Frog and Old Dogs plus a third update for the Toy Story Blu-rays coming the same month can all be seen here.

January 23, 2010 - Our newest review covers Surrogates. Adapted from a graphic novel, Touchstone Pictures' PG-13 sci-fi action film is set in a near-future where humans live vicariously through picture-perfect robots.

January 12, 2010 - Get informed about today's new releases right here.

Disney has announced a 2-disc Special Un-Anniversary Edition DVD of their original 1951 animated Alice in Wonderland for release on March 30, 2010 while Tim Burton's new take on the story plays in theaters.New bonus features include the deleted scene "Pig and Pepper" considered in the 1930s, and the featurette "Reflections on Alice." It seems safe to assume that The Great Mouse Detective, previously scheduled for re-release on the same day, will be delayed. For a look at the new Alice DVD's cover and to preorder, click here.

Recent DVD and Blu-ray Reviews:
• Family Guy: Something, Something, Something, Dark Side (Blu-ray) - This second send-up of Star Wars films has Seth MacFarlane's irreverent animated comedy retelling The Empire Strikes Back with the Griffin family and friends in the parts. The hour-long feature is accompanied by an audio commentary, a fact track, two table reads, a featurette, an animatic comparison, and, only on Blu-ray, a digital copy.
• "10 Things I Hate About You": Volume One - This single-camera ABC Family original sitcom revives the characters from Touchstone's 1999 teen comedy film, depicting the Stratford sisters' life as the new girls in a California high school. The 2-disc set holds the ten episodes aired to date, two cast/crew audio commentaries, bloopers, the pilot episode of gymnastics drama "Make It or Break It", and two featurettes.
• Jennifer's Body (Blu-ray) - Diablo Cody's follow-up to her Oscar-winning Juno screenplay is a darkly comedic horror film about a cheerleader (Megan Fox) and best friend (Amanda Seyfried) whose lives change after a chaotic concert fire. Fox's recent Blu-ray holds both the film's theatrical cut and an extended version plus two audio commentaries, deleted scenes, video diaries, a gag reel, and more.
• 10 Things I Hate About You: 10th Anniversary Edition - This 1999 teen comedy updates Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew to a Seattle high school, where a smitten student (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) tries to set up an icy feminist (Julia Stiles) with an Australian bad boy (Heath Ledger) so that he can date her younger sister (Larisa Oleynik). The set includes an audio commentary by the writers and four supporting cast members; a documentary holding new crew and old cast interviews, deleted scenes, and outtakes; and a digital copy of the film.
• Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs - Sony's computer-animated comedy/adventure expands upon the beloved children's book with the story of an outcast inventor who causes a variety of foods to rain down from the sky. Extras on this 2-Disc Super-Sized Edition include an audio commentary, deleted/extended scenes, a Food Fight Game, two featurettes, and a music video, sing-along and making-of for Miranda Cosgrove's end credits song "Raining Sunshine."
• Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine For You - Special Edition - This new disc teams up the eponymous 1999 ABC holiday special with a pair of "New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" episodes. The old release's set-top game is here joined by a bonus "New Adventures" installment and six character Valentines.
• "Kyle XY": The Complete Third Season - In the ABC Family drama's final 10 episodes, human-like experiment Jessi (Jaimie Alexander) develops feelings for Kyle (Matt Dallas), while both get involved with the mysterious Latnok society and its suspicious new supervisor Michael Cassidy (Hal Ozsan). The 3-disc set includes 2 audio commentaries, 12 deleted scenes, and a featurette about the series' unproduced future plans.
