Physical media may be slowly succumbing to the digital age, but you can pry my Blu-ray library from my cold, lifeless corpse…a corpse that will have a frozen smile on its bloodless face because I died watching movies that didn’t need to buffer at key moments and actually allowed me to watch the ending credits before smash cutting to a recommendation. And speaking of corpses and physical media, a Blu-ray box set collecting all five Phantasm movies is on the way, just in case you happen to like good things.

As we’ve already established, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist aren’t exactly team player types. It’d probably take a monumental threat to bring the four of them together for The Defenders, and over the summer we learned the face of that threat would be Sigourney Weaver. Since then, details about her mysterious The Defenders villain character have been kept under very tight wraps. But today brings our first look at Weaver in character, along with a few new details about her — including her name.
See the first The Defenders Sigourney Weaver photo below, plus a whole bunch of new images featuring the various Defenders in different configurations. (My favorite of those new photos is the one highlighted above.) Read More »

Even though Netflix is now known for making endless entertainment easily available to be streamed through various devices in your home and in your hand, don’t forget that they began as the DVD rental company that sent discs to your house. While access to Netflix’s streaming library is the most convenient way to enjoy all the programming they have to offer, believe it or not, there are still millions of people who have Blu-ray and DVD discs shipped to their house.
Sadly, when it comes to ease of accessibility for managing their queue, these customers have been left out in the wind when it comes to having a mobile app that allows them to access their account, manage their queue and get notifications of their next discs shipping. But that changes today as Netflix has built an app specifically for their DVD rental customers.

UPDATE: We’ve been told this release actually isn’t anything more than an updated version of a 2014 high-definition release with a new Steelbook case. Still, for those who didn’t know this existed, this might be good news.
It’s no secret that the film adaptation of Super Mario Bros. is a complete disaster. The making of the total mess of a video game movie was documented in Blake J. Harris’ book Console Wars (you can read all about it right here). But somehow, there are enough fans of the movie to warrant a release of the movie in high-definition.
Believe it or not, Super Mario Bros. is getting a Blu-ray release next month, and it even has a collectible Steelbook case to keep it safe from anyone who would be crazy enough to steal it for their own collection. Read More »

Last month we got the very welcome news that Richard Linklater‘s Before trilogy would be joining the Criterion Collection. While the director’s Slacker, Dazed and Confused, and Boyhood are all part of the lineup already, it took Criterion a while to get around to tackling this one. But then again, Before fans are surely used to waiting — after all, it took nine years to get from each chapter of Jesse and Celine’s love story to the next.
Now, the wait is almost over. With just a couple of months to go until the trilogy hits shelves, Criterion has released the cover art for all three movies as well as the box set. Check it out below. Read More »
