DVD Releases for Tuesday January 17, 2012

Time to take a look at a selection of DVD releases for Tuesday January 17, 2012!

  • Redline (DVD Review) Absolutely fantastic Japanese animation film centred on racing. I adored it when I saw it at Toronto After Dark in 2011 and can't wait to see it again. A total thrill ride. Highly recommended.
  • First Squad: The Moment of Truth (DVD Review) I don't normally dig war themed films, but this animated film of Germans vs Russians got me when I read "supernatural army of crusaders from the 12th-century Order of the Sacred Cross". Yeah. Gotta see that.
  • Abduction (DVD Review) Taylor Lautner (Twilight, New Moon) takes his first stab at a leading action role and although it's got an interesting premise I think forgot who Taylor's fans are primarily made up of.
  • Dirty Girl I really want to see this Juno Temple film set in the late 80's and following two friends on a bag 'o' flour.
  • Life 2.0 A documentary looking at people whose lives are shaped and changed by connection with the virtual world.
  • Traffic Has it really been 12 years since Traffic? Wow. Then it's well overdue the Criterion treatment!
  • Mysteries of Lisbon Gorgeous looking historically set multi-country and intertwined relationship film.
  • Stephen King's Bag of Bones TV miniseries based on the Stephen King novel starring Pierce Brosnan, Melissa George, Annabeth Gish.
  • Merlin: The Complete Third Season Pretty good timing with this release as Season 4 of this Arthurian-set fantasy series has recently begun to air. This UK series is a lot of fun and I've grown to enjoy it more and more over the years.
  • Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete First Season This dual female protagonist crime procedual just showed up on Showcase recently and looks pretty interesting.
  • Eureka Season 4.5 I still keep kicking myself that I've not checked out this science fiction/comedy series that has a strange suburbia feel.
  • Waking the Dead: The Complete Season Six BBC cold case crime procedural and wow, Season Six and this is only the first time I remember hearing about it!
  • Courageous Male-centric faith-based drama that's got a religious journey film feel. I think this is actually a new hyper genre as I've seen a few crop up. Wild.
  • The Ides of March Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Paul Giamatti and Philip Seymour Hoffman star in this American political drama, directed by George Clooney.
  • 50/50 Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in this semi-biographical film about a young man who struggles with cancer. And... it's a comedy. Hmm. UPDATE: 50/50 will be released on January 24, 2012.
  • Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star Follows the title character in his quest to find his parents and become a porn star... like his parents. Easily one of the oddest plots infilm last year. Stars Nick Swardson, Don Johnson and Christina Ricci.
