Hardcore Henry Several great movies and programs have come out recently, including a few that shouldn't be missed: Hardcore Henry - a movie that plays like a combination of the videogame Half-Life mixed in with a pinch of RoboCop... all within a beautiful, chaotic snow globe of a Russian dash cam video; The Boy Who Cried Werewolf - a briskly paced feature that has languished in obscurity for years now, the movie turns out to be a lot of fun thanks primarily to some great ‘old fashioned' style transformation effects; and Pioneers of African American Cinema - this massive 5-disc, set running over 21 hours total does a magnificent job presenting a nearly forgotten chapter in film history as well as African-American culture. 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.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time Our reviewers have been busy this week, filling the DVD Talk Review Database more great entries. Some new reviews of note include: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time - an entertaining and ambitious animated production that hits all the right notes... a must-see film for any anime fan; Belladonna of Sadness - a visually intensive film, like a lot of great art, this animated feature can be challenging at times but it is a beautifully made film ripe for rediscovery; and Cat In The Brain - this film from Il Maestro Lucio Fulci ia a blood-filled nightmare unmoored from the likes of logic, it's a hell of a lot of nasty fun.

Ghostbusters (2016) Before you head off to the cinema this weekend, check out DVD Talk's reviews of the latest releases including: Ghostbusters (2016) [a second review] - in this reboot of the franchise, the jokes don't work, the main characters aren't consistently funny, and the film has to bring in familiar faces for cameos far too often, showing a lack of confidence; and The Neon Demon - Nicolas Winding Refn's movie about an underage aspiring model is a genre-bleeding film that tiptoes along the edge of drama and suspense. Other recent films include: The BFG, The Legend of Tarzan, Finding Dory, Warcraft, Alice Through the Looking Glass, The Nice Guys, X-Men: Apocalypse (3D), Captain America: Civil War, Tale of Tales, and The Jungle Book. Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.

The Shannara Chronicles: Season One More TV shows have made their way on to DVD and Blu-ray, and DVD Talk has got them covered. Check out our reviews of the newest TV releases including: The Shannara Chronicles: Season One - MTV's big-budget attempt to get in on the Game of Thrones this show is set in a post-apocalyptic future where technology and science have given way to a world of magic and demons; Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season - this fourth season offers excellent political drama, beautiful locations, fantastic performances and exciting action; and The Last Panthers - an intriguing attempt to examine the machinations at work behind a single crime, starting with the micro and expanding gradually to the unwieldy macro.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Some pretty cool discs have made their way to store shelves over the past couple of weeks. Check out these new titles: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - flawed but consistently entertaining, this movie receives an impressive Blu-ray package that includes a bounty of extras and the much-anticipated "Ultimate Edition" with 30 minutes of additional footage; Bad Moon - this horror film is short, but screenwriter/director Eric Red ensures that every last moment is used to maximum effect.... it also boasts one of the most outstanding looking werewolves ever captured on film; and Cuba - an underrated effort from director Richard Lester that is highly worthy of reappraisal. 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.

Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan This week the DVD Talk Review Database has some great new entries, including a few discs you may have overlooked. Recent reviews include: Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan - a loving tribute to one of the most talented and wildly influential artists in the history of cinema; Carnival of Souls - a high point in low budget American horror from the sixties, standing tall alongside other notable genre entries like Night of the Living Dead; and The Panic in Needle Park - this movie is bleak as hell, but its loose style, infused with the energy of the street, and the outstanding performances from young Al Pacino and Kitty Winn make the film intensely watchable and highly recommended.

The Ox-Bow Incident There are some new titles coming out that might make it worth a trip to the video store. Check out these recent releases: The Ox-Bow Incident - director William Wellman's 1943 adaptation of the famous story is a damn good film that's absolutely worth revisiting, having lost none of its power or its poignancy over the seven decades plus since it was first made; Green Room - a member of a rock band sees something he shouldn't have seen after playing for a group of skinheads in Jeremy Saulnier's incredibly intense film; and Flight Of The Butterflies - a truly wonderful film, this educational movie is also lovely to view and tells an entertaining story... the 4K Ultra HD version is really impressive, but the 3D version is the one to watch.
