New TV reviews include: Mad Men: the Final Season-Part 1 - The first part of this last season of Mad Men sets up the pieces on the board for their final moves; Maya: The Complete Series - the combination of impressive Indian location work, action-filled, well-written storylines and of course Maya the elephant, make this 60’s adventure series a real find; and Richard Lewis: Bundle of Nerves - devoted fans of the comedian will enjoy having these four programs collected in a convenient, affordable package, complete with a couple of new extras.

Shivers This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: Shivers - David Cronenberg's first commercial feature is barely more than a softcore porn film, but in conception and execution it's a little masterpiece. ; Audrey Rose - From Frank De Felitta's best selling novel, this Robert Wise picture is the most confoundingly prestigious/frustrating horror offering of the '70s, a dumber-than Pazuzu Exorcist follow-up that torments a little girl for two hours, for the apparent purpose of getting us to accept the Eastern religious concept of reincarnation. It's not a thriller, it's an infomercial; and Topkapi - Jules Dassin films the flip side of his pessimistic Rififi in this brightly colored comic caper comedy set in the exotic city of Istanbul. A gang of crooks trick the nervous Peter Ustinov into sneaking across the rooftops of the fabulous Topkapi Museum, there to snatch a priceless treasure for the greedy-but-inspired temptress Melina Mercouri. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

Nightbreed: The Director's Cut There are some new titles coming out that might make it worth a trip to the video store this week. Check out these recent releases: Nightbreed: The Director's Cut [review] - a legitimate director's cut of the movie, it includes a lot of new footage and corrects the results of studio meddling... the film is immeasurably improved because of it; The Vanishing [review] - a masterpiece, really... the performances and technique on display are uniformly excellent while the story remains both engaging and genuinely frightening; and WKRP In Cincinnati: The Complete Series [review] - the place of WKRP within television history is an understated one, one that deserves more attention... when the show goes for laughs, they hit all of pitches thrown at them. Now the program finally has the quality release it deserves. 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.

Life After Beth Some cool discs have been reviewed over the past week. Check out these recent entries: Life After Beth - Aubrey Plaza heads an all-star cast in this fascinatingly different movie about a love that won't die; The Last of the Unjust - French filmmaker Claude Lanzmann (Shoah) takes another look at the Holocaust in this nearly four-hour documentary about Austrian Rabbi Benjamin Murmelstein, one of the few (possibly the only) Jewish Elder to survive the war; and Snowpiercer - Director Joon-ho Bong serves up a thinly-veiled slice of social commentary in this post-apocalyptic tale. Other recent reviews include: La dolce vita, Mulholland Falls, and Kingpin.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

John Wick Planning a trip to the local multiplex this weekend? Here are DVD Talk's reviews of the latest theatrical releases: John Wick [review #2, #3, and #4] - audiences who are searching for a wild ride of an action film will be incredibly satisfied with this Keanu Reeves flick... it's violent, funny, wickedly exciting and it has a cool sense of style; Laggies [review #2] - this film about the trials of growing up is well-observed and a smartly played character piece that ends up being a crowd-pleaser; and Force Majeure - Sweden's official Oscar entry into the "Best Foreign Language Category," this is a well-crafted film that asks a seemingly simple, yet an ultimately complex question. Other recent films include: Birdman, Fury, Dracula Untold, Gone Girl, Harmontown, A Walk Among the Tombstones, The Maze Runner, Kelly & Cal, The Drop, The Skeleton Twins, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, The November Man, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Guardians of the Galaxy, 22 Jump Street, and How to Train Your Dragon 2. Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.

From Dusk Till Dawn: Season One Some great TV shows have made their way onto DVD this week including: From Dusk Till Dawn: Season One - a surprisingly effective television reboot of the original cult classic film; The Best of the Danny Kaye Show - quite an enjoyable overview of a classic variety series... hoofer-crooner-clown Danny Kaye is a magnetic performer who is a delight to watch; and Bronco: The Complete First Season - Good writing, no-nonsense direction, and excellent supporting turns--with newcomer Ty Hardin doing just fine in his first big break--make this an unpretentious winner. Other shows recently reviewed include:  NYPD Blue: Season 6, Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season One, and Medical Center: The Complete Fifth Season.  Want more?  Check out all of the TV on DVD reviews in the DVD Talk database.

Yankee Doodle Dandy This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: Yankee Doodle Dandy - THE most successful all-time patriotic crowdpleaser tells the happy story of George M. Cohan, the toast of Broadway who wrote both songs and plays and performed as well. If he wasn't a legend already, star James Cagney seals the deal in some of the most energy-charged dance scenes ever; The Blob - Chuck Russell and Frank Darabont had a hit with this remake of the 1958 creep 'n' leap classic. No Steve McQueen this time but the same exact story with the addition of a government conspiracy, a willingness to kill off all the interesting characters, and a surfeit of gory blob attacks; and True Confessions - An impressive pairing of actors Robert DeNiro and Robert Duvall elevates this drama of corruption in late- '40s Los Angeles to an unheralded classic. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.
