A comprehensive look at the first season of the 1000cc class, bringing you highlights from the opening race under the floodlights in Qatar through to the traditional finale in Valencia.
Frank Miller's landmark graphic novel about fear, hope and redemption is celebrated with proper measures of haunting visuals and intense action in the next entry in the popular, ongoing series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies. Peter Weller leads a stellar voice cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Joining Weller behind the microphone is David Selby as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter as Carrie/Robin, three-time DCU veteran Wade Williams as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, and Michael McKean as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper.
Facing the downside of middle age, a restless Bruce Wayne pacifies his frustration with racecars and liquor - but the Bat still beckons as he watches his city fall prey to gangs of barbaric criminals known as The Mutants. The return of Harvey Dent as Two-Face finally prompts Wayne to once again don the Dark Knight's cowl, and his dramatic capture of the villain returns him to crime-fighting - simultaneously making him the target of law enforcement and the new hope for a desolate Gotham City.
Narrated by two-time Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey, the film features 45 original interviews with Carson's friends, family and colleagues, including his second wife, Joanne, Dick Cavett, Doc Severinsen, and other The Tonight Show staff.

Late night TV hosts Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien also discuss Carson's influence on their careers.
In this documentary, through restored vintage audio recordings, Pickford narrates her own story along with actor Michael York. Classic film clips, rare home movies, and cameo interviews with Adolph Zukor (founder of Paramount Studios), famed aviator Amelia Earhart, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Lillian Gish, Buddy Rogers (Pickford's last husband), as well as the only interview ever given by Pickford's daughter, Roxanne Rogers Monroe, give the viewer an in-depth look into the early world of the American cinema.
In the spirit of Get Smart, ABCs action-adventure/comedy spy series (1970-72) aired Saturday mornings, starring a cast of chimpanzees whose performances were dubbed with human voices, including those of Dayton Allen, Joan Gerber, Steven Hoffman and Bernie Kopell, among others. All 17 episodes have been transferred from the original studio ABC masters.
The entire Three Stooges Columbia shorts catalog spans three decades of slapstick silliness, featuring 190 shorts, plus three discs of rare and unreleased content. Fans will revel in this chance to see several of the Stooges work separately in solo shorts, developing the comic skills that would lead them to their roles as successors to Curly in the comedy trio. The collection includes 28 never-before-released short films starring Stooges actors Shemp Howard, Joe Besser, and Joe DeRita, as well as the feature length films Have Rocket, Will Travel and Rockin' in the Rockies available for the first time on DVD. From the classic teaming of Moe, Larry and Curly to later cast members Shemp, Joe and Curly Joe, this 20-disc set is a must-own collection for any Stooges fan.
New Tricks has run on the BBC for eight seasons since 2003 and has already been renewed for a ninth and tenth season. The series has enjoyed ongoing broadcast exposure in North America on public television, garnering fans on both sides of the Atlantic for its masterful storytelling, unforgettable characters, and sly humor. The DVD 3-Disc Set includes all eight episodes from Season 6, plus a bonus behind-the-scenes featurette.
Featuring select interviews with some of baseball's most extraordinary legends - insightful, compelling and entertaining personal portraits that can only be delivered by a broadcasting pro like Ed Randall. One of the foremost journalists in the history of baseball, Randall is host of Ed Randall's Talking Baseball on New York's WFAN-AM and on Sirius XM Radio's MLB Home Plate channel and hosted a television version of the show for more than 15 years on what later became FOX Sports Network.
Even given some weaknesses, the four films of this collection are never less than competent and entertaining. In their own quiet ways, this neglected director may have to guide Britain through a tumultuous time into a more tolerant post-war world.
DVD Review LOST KEATON
Fans of Buster Keaton can rejoice, for Kino has brought to DVD all 16 of the rarely-seen short films Buster Keaton made for Educational Pictures in the mid-1930s. Despite the studio's name, there's nothing educational here, except lessons in comedy timing from the Great Stone Face himself.
DVD Review BROOKLYN'S FINEST
On paper, this film has a lot going for it, including a strong ensemble cast. Unfortuntely, the reviews weren't stellar during its theatrical release, but critics have been wrong before.
