This Week in DVD is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s.

Please don’t take the commentary on the movies and TV shows too seriously, as they’re meant not to be reviews but rather previews that include the general thoughts and ramblings of a twice-committed DVD addict. The categories represent solely the author’s intentions towards the DVDs at hand, and are in no way meant to be a reflection on what he thinks other people should rent or buy. So if he ends up putting a movie you like in the “Skip it” section without having seen it, please keep in mind that the time you could spend leaving a spiteful but ultimately futile comment could instead be used for more pleasant things in life. Like buying DVDs.

Buy It

BOLT
(Available as single-disc and 2-Disc Deluxe Edition)
Five months ago, the only opinion I thought I’d be spreading in regards to Bolt was pure unbridled hatred. As a major supporter of Lilo & Stitch, I had been following co-writer/director Chris Sanders follow-up project American Dog since the first day it was announced, and everything about the movie looked fantastic. But the higher-ups at Disney weren’t as confident, and questioned the film’s marketability. Their solution was to remove Sanders from the project and give it a substantial overhaul. Bolt was the result of that overhaul. I wish I could tell you that it’s terrible, and the people at Disney made a huge mistake… But damn it all, it’s actually a really solid movie. While I do still wish I could’ve seen what Sanders had in store for us, there’s also no denying that Bolt is incredibly well-made, consistently funny, and genuinely heartfelt. I plan on buying it.
Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: 2-Disc includes ‘Super Rhino’ animated short, In Session with John Travolta and Miley Cyrus, ‘A New Breed of Directors’, Deleted Scenes, ‘Act, Speak! The Voices of Bolt’, ‘Creating the World of Bolt’ and Digital Copy.

The /Filmcast: After Dark is a recording of what happens right after The /Filmcast is over, when the kids have gone to bed and the guys feel free to speak whatever is on their minds.

In this episode, David, Devindra, and Adam, and Dave3 reflect on Batman Begins in preparation for The Dark Knight’s release. The lovely Neha Tiwari also joins us for tonight’s discussion.
