Killing Lincoln - 20th Century Fox - Not Rated
Bill O'Reilly's book Killing Lincoln was turned into an excellent television documentary produced by Ridley Scott and narrated by Tom Hanks. Now on home video, it includes commentary, multiple featurettes and an interview with O'Reilly.
House of Cards - Sony - Not Rated
The sexy political drama House of Cards stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. The addictive first season comes to disc with 13 episodes. It's very good, and it's My Pick of the Week!
Enter the Dragon - Warner Brothers - Rated R
The 1973 Bruce Lee classic Enter the Dragon has been remastered for its 40th anniversary and looks better than ever. It comes with elaborate bonus features including commentary, multiple featurettes, production art, an embroidered patch and more.
Snitch - Summit Entertainment - Rated PG-13
None of the acting in Snitch is especially good, but I must give Dwayne Johnson props for trying - and succeeding in stretching his still limited range. The ridiculous, silly story supposedly based on true events took me out of it, though. Extras include commentary, deleted scenes and a multi-part documentary.
Oz The Great & Powerful - Disney - Rated PG
Oz the Great and Powerful has a lot going for it. the visuals are amazing, and the story is a lot of fun…it adds to the Oz legend, and gives appropriate respect. Extras include
Atlantis/Lilo & Stitch/Emperor's New Groove - Disney - Rated G
Three of Disney's recent animated films and their sequels find their way to Blu-ray, Atlantis, Lilo & Stitch, and The Emperor's New Groove, each in two movie collections. Bonus features vary with the set.
