New movies on DVD, Blu-ray, Pay-Per-View and in Theaters
O.K., so you’ve got this great high definition TV, and there are literally thousands of movies out there to choose from. Every Friday, I post a quick list of the films that will be coming out on DVD, Blu-ray and pay-per-view on the next Tuesday, and on the Tuesday after that, along the theatrical releases for the next week. In effect, the home entertainment information is repeated for those who want to get a jump on things.
Week in Film and Streaming September 14
The Green Knight (R) Fantasy – Dev Patel puts his head on the block in an atmospheric, overlong retelling of the Arthurian legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Comparable in some ways to John Boorman’s Excalibur (1981, R), but it also makes the odd nod to Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975, PG). In theaters and on pay-per-view.
Apocalypse ’45 (not rated) Documentary – Three short color films made during World War II (Ford At Pearl, To the Shores of Iwo Jima and The Last Bomb) have been digitally restored. Total running time: 104 min. On DVD.
