Deadpool Check out the latest reviews that have been entered into the DVD Talk Review Database including: Deadpool - a superhero movie that doesn't take itself deadly seriously and is willing to have a little fun; The Witch - the scariest, most disturbing and just-plain best made horror film in ages, Robert Eggers' film deserves a harvest basket of praise; and Julia - popular and acclaimed, but still somehow one of the great unsung films of the 1970s, Fred Zinnemann's film about playwright Lillian Hellman overflows with the kinds of things that have become extremely rare in Hollywood movies today: subtlety, unspoken emotion, ambiguity, and richly woven characterizations expressed with a minimum of action and dialogue. Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Cop Rock: The Complete Series Interested in the latest TV on DVD reviews? DVD Talk has you covered! This week's notable entries include: Cop Rock: The Complete Series - if you missed this show the first time around, it's deserving of your viewing now... Steven Bochco (Hill Street Blues) tested the bounds of what could be done in a TV show with this musical police drama; Cinema Exiles: From Hitler to Hollywood - this interesting PBS documentary traces the impact that Hitler's rise to power had on the film industry in both Germany and America; and Heroes Reborn: Event Series - taking place several years after the conclusion to the original series, this show is a bit darker in tone and goes in some wacky directions.

Dark Passage Some pretty cool discs have made their way to store shelves over this week. Check out these new titles: Dark Passage [review] - this Humphry Bogart/Lauren Bacall feature is loaded with noir style and is ripe with tension and suspense; and The Naked Island: Criterion Collection [review] - Kaneto Shindo's film is equal parts beauty and despair, examining a small family unit toiling away in near isolation while the natural world spins without stopping for them; and Too Late for Tears [review] - Byron Haskin directs this 1949 film noir thriller, a strong film noir entry that stars the beautiful Lizabeth Scott as a consummate femme fatale... the direction is tight, the pacing is quick and the story is tense. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Dillinger Some cool discs have been reviewed over the past week. Check out these recent entries: Dillinger - John Milius' film is a bloody, entertaining gangster biopic filled with shoot-outs and one-liners and displays the rogue charms of its director; Trailer Trauma 2: Drive-In Monsterama - packed with just shy of a hundred trailers and every last one of 'em has been newly-transferred in 4K from 35mm elements., this sequel is bigger and better all around; and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton are fantastic as a dysfunctional married couple that spends a booze-filled evening tormenting some houseguests.

In a Lonely Place Another banner week for DVDs with the studios releasing some great films and boxed sets such as: In a Lonely Place [review] - this Humphrey Bogart feature is an excellent film, a thriller with plenty of romance and drama that really benefits from some great performances and impressively tight direction by Nicholas Ray; and Entertaining the Troops: Bob Hope [review] - Time-Life presents three Bob Hope USO Christmas tours- two during the Vietnam War in 1969 and 1970 and one from 1951 during the Korean War; and The Manhattan Project [review] - a fun watch, an entertaining mix of effective comedy and solid suspense done with a decidedly ‘eighties' style. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

A Fine Pair Our reviewers have been busy this week, filling the DVD Talk Review Database more great entries. Some new reviews of note include: A Fine Pair - Rock Hudson and Claudia Cardinale are the unlikely couple at the center of the romantic caper comedy that is silly fun; A Prayer for the Dying - Director Mike Hodges' film is a modern western with some moments of explosive action and a characteristically moody Mickey Rourke in the lead; and Melinda - for fans of '70s blaxploitation, this is a must-see... great performances and assured writing and direction make this a cut above typical grindhouse fare.

Captain America: Civil War It would be a great week to go to the movies. Here are DVD Talk's recent theatrical reviews: Captain America: Civil War - undeniably one of the better films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe... it is a lot of fun; Tale of Tales - three strange and morbid tales of kings and magic taken from the writings of 17th Century Italian poet Giambattista Basile; and Midnight Special - director Jeff Nichols' latest offering is a nice work, but while the pieces really were all prepared to slide together they just got stuck in the mud before they had the chance. Other recent films include: The Jungle Book, The Huntsman: Winter's War, Hardcore Henry, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Deadpool, Zoolander 2, Hail, Caesar!, and Room. Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.
