DVD Review WIZARD OF OZ (BLU-RAY)

WIZARD OF OZ

The Wizard of Oz comes to Blu-ray with an HD transfer so good, and supplements so voluminous, you'll never have to buy it again. Probably.

DVD Review WINGS OF DESIRE (BLU-RAY)

WINGS OF DESIRE

Another excellent Blu-ray from Criterion, and for one of the best films of the 1980s to boot. An essential upgrade.

DVD Review HORTON HEARS A WHO! (BLU-RAY)

HORTON HEARS A

Horton Hears a Who isn't quite the childhood classic I remembered it to be, but even if I loved it, I might advise against upgrading to Blu-ray, if only to keep the terrible bonus TV special In Search of Dr. Seuss out of your home and DVD player.

DVD Review MONSOON WEDDING (BLU-RAY)

MONSOON WEDDING

Even as some grumble that Criterion should focus on bringing lost classics to DVD, it's tough to argue that the underappreciated Monsoon Wedding hasn't benefitted from the company's topflight treatment.

DVD Review PIERROT LE FOU (BLU-RAY)

PIERROT LE FOU

The strength of Criterion's previous release of Godard's pulp crime masterpiece makes the decision to upgrade to Blu-ray a tough one—until you see the image transfer, that is, and head to eBay to sell your old copy.

DVD Review SMALLVILLE: THE COMPLETE EIGHTH SEASON

SMALLVILLE: THE

Smallville. Season eight. Yeah, I'm as shocked as you are. More so that the show seems to have improved somewhat despite the departure of about half the original cast.

DVD Review AUDIENCE OF ONE

AUDIENCE OF ONE

A well-meaning pastor who has never made a movie, maybe not even seen very many, believes he is called by God to mount at $100 million production of a Christian Star Wars-ian epic. It goes about as well as you might expect.

DVD Review THIRTYSOMETHING: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

THIRTYSOMETHING

Here's a fun game: Try to watch the debut season of thirtysomething all the way through without saying any of the following:

A) Nice hair clip, Nancy.
B) Why does her coat have numbers all over it?
C) Shut up, Hope.

I lost.

DVD Review PLAYTIME (BLU-RAY)

PLAYTIME

Jacques Tati's Playtime is a movie made for HD. Well, no. It was made to be seen in 70mm on a huge screen. In a cinema. In Paris. In 1967. But I'll take what I can get.

DVD Review REPULSION (BLU-RAY)

REPULSION

DVD Review GRAN TORINO (BLU-RAY)

GRAN TORINO

If Gran Torino is Clint Eastwood's last film as an actor, he picked a good performance to go out on. So good that he overshadows the fact that the movie can be accurately summarized as "Dirty Harry meets an Afterschool Special About Racism, and Also, Gangs Are Bad."

DVD Review GARRISON KEILLOR: THE MAN ON THE RADIO IN THE RED SHOES

GARRISON KEILLO

Garrison Keillor has created an entire town with his words, over 30 years of weekly radio monologues shaping the lives of the residents of Lake Wobegone, Minn. Garrison Keillor: The Man On the Radio in the Red Shoes looks for the man behind the stories. Not surprisingly, it just finds more stories.

DVD Review MADE IN U.S.A.

MADE IN U.S.A.

Heretofore ironically unavailable in the U.S. (due to rights issues with the Donald E. Westlake novel upon which weŪre supposed to believe it is žbasedÓ), Jean-Luc Godard's candy-colored genre meditation Made in U.S.A. comes to DVD from The Criterion Collection. Thank goodness for the supplements, practically essential to unpacking one of the most challenging and inscrutable films of the director's celebrated 1960s output.

DVD Review LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD (BLU-RAY)

LAST YEAR AT MA

Debate the merits of the confounding film all you want, but there's no arguing the fact that this Blu-ray offers one of the most beautiful black-and-white transfers ever produced.

DVD Review THE LADY VANISHES

THE LADY VANISH

One of Hitchcock's purest entertainments, The Lady Vanishes is as funny and suspenseful a picture as you could ask for. If the plot goes off the rails a bit in the end, it's easy to overlook; we've been so entertained during the voyage.

DVD Review BOTTLE ROCKET (BLU-RAY)

BOTTLE ROCKET

Wes Anderson has developed into a love-him-or-hate-him filmmaker, but it's hard not to be won over by his first attempt, especially when watching it on Criterion's excellent Blu-ray release.

DVD Review WAYNE'S WORLD 2 (BLU-RAY)

WAYNE'S WORLD 2

In a stunning display of the amount of thought Paramount put into the production of Wayne's World 2 on Blu-ray, the back cover refers to it as "the most awaited video" since Wayne's World, marketing copy you might remember from when the movie was released 15 years ago... on video.
