The Finest Hours

New Blu-Ray/DVD Releases (05/24/16) – It may not be the ‘Finest’ Week

This week, we have another one of the weaker assortments of titles coming to Blu-Ray/DVD. It’s thoroughly unimpressive, and while it’s not actually the weakest I’ve ever covered, or even particularly close to it, it’s still uninspiring as all hell and that’s just the way the cookie crumbles sometimes. Today might be another crummy slate […]

New Blu-Ray/DVD Releases (05/03/16)

This week, we don’t exactly have a high quality slate of titles hitting Blu-Ray and DVD. In fact, it’s kind of a rough slate today, all things considered. Oddly enough though, the two main films of note are ones with top notch lead performances from Academy Award winners and come from directors sporting multiple nominations […]

New Blu-Ray/DVD Releases (04/19/16)

This week, one of last year’s awards season juggernauts comes to Blu-Ray/DVD, along with only a handful of other titles. I don’t really feel enthusiastic about any of the films hitting shelves today, but one does stand out above the rest, without question. There could be another movie or two worth giving a shot to, […]

New Blu-Ray/DVD Releases (04/26/16)

This week, we have one of the most highly regarded foreign films of last year leading the way for things coming to Blu-Ray/DVD. This particular title also happens to more or less be the only thing of real note coming out today, so it stands even taller by comparison. There’s a few curiosities hitting, as […]

New Blu-Ray/DVD Releases (04/12/16)

This week, we have one of the sorrier assortments of titles coming to Blu-Ray/DVD. It could very well be the weakest I’ve ever covered, but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. Today might be a crummy slate, but there’s still a column to be written, so we must press on. As such, I’m doing […]

New Blu-Ray/DVD Releases (04/05/16) – ‘Star Wars’ Awakens for the Home

This week, perhaps the biggest film, at least financially speaking, of all time hits Blu-Ray/DVD. Along with that behemoth, there’s a small assortment of other titles vying for your attention, though they really pale in comparison. That doesn’t mean that the other movies aren’t worthwhile in their own way, they’re just decidedly lesser all around. […]

New Blu-Ray/DVD Releases (03/29/16)

This week, one of the most interesting and singular films of 2015 comes to Blu-Ray/DVD, along with at least one other thing of note. Quantity wise, this is a smaller slate, though quality wise, it’s definitely saved by my top pick today. There’s a runner up title that I’ll be honoring as well, but it’s […]

New Blu-Ray/DVD Releases (03/22/16)

This week, a pair of highly successful franchises come to an end as part of the Blu-Ray/DVD slate. One has kept its run of quality going throughout, while one decidedly has not. Throw in an acclaimed independent film, along with a few other movies, and that’s the lineup hitting shelves today. It’s a relatively small […]

New Blu-Ray/DVD Releases (3/15/16)

This week, a handful of Oscar nominees are coming to Blu-Ray/DVD, making this without question one of the classiest columns in recent memory. A pair of Best Picture nominated films are in play for my top pick, along with one of the more nominated movies overall from the 88th Academy Awards. Obviously, this makes for […]

New Blu-Ray/DVD Releases (03/08/16)

This week, we have a somewhat underwhelming slate of Blu-Ray/DVD releases to deal with, though of course it could be worse. Yes, we’ve had some stinkers over the past few months, so today is decent enough by comparison. It just lacks the zip that the best groups of titles tend to have for the column. […]

New Blu-Ray/DVD Releases (3/01/16)

This week, three of the very best releases of 2015 are hitting Blu-Ray and DVD, which might just be a record. The best part of this slate, however, is that they’re not the only films worth mentioning today. It’s a great grouping, quality wise, so we can rejoice. It’s as if my birthday has come […]
